    rick979, Apparently not all of them. I own a Model 12 that came in the Winchester box with the serial number of the gun in the box. The box was marked "Trap" but the gun isn't. It is of the period between 1964 and 1966 serial numbers. It originally had a Hydrocoil stock (brown). It has since been restocked and engraved. I still shoot it occasionally.

    Some are, some are not. Back in the day you could order a model 12 in any configuration you wanted. If you want to tell the difference between a model 12 where the rib was done at the factory or ordered by the factory, the proof mark will be next to the rib near the receiver. If the rib was an add-on, after the fact, the proof mark will be under the rib and nearly impossible to see i most cases.

    Pigeon grade model 12's always have the pecker facing left, but these have been duplicated as well.

    I had a trap model 12 that was not marked as such. The one I now own is so in a one word anser No they are not
