1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    That bump is called a palm swell ... it makes it fit your hand better.

    Question ... what is the choke on that gun, looks more like a trap gun, than a skeet gun!

    The choke markings are stamped on the barrel at the winchester logo area. Made up trap guns usually go for 600 to 800 sometimes more with nice Anton wood. If the rib is stamped Simmons it is not factory. Collectors want unaltered guns for the most part.

    The other Model 12 with the Cutts Compensator could be valuable if it is a factory original skeet gun, Winchester did have factory installed Cutts, if it was factory installed there will be no choke marking.

    Really need better pictures, serial numbers and barrel markings, others more knowledgeable than myself will chime in,

    Its obvious you hold your Grandpa in high regard, I would hold on to the guns as they are priceless as family heirlooms. Shoot and enjoy the guns, Model 12's are great guns, your Grandpa would be proud.
