    It's a Remington M12. I guess we know who won the "M12 Battle"

    The tan line looks a lot like mine.... trap shooters who shoot in shorts.
    Enjoy the Model 12

    I've got the identical twin to that M12. A good old shooter.

    Did you give BIG BUCKS for that Beauty. ( Nice Find ) Here is a little History on the Model 12 :
    The Model 12 actually came in 12A, 12B, 12C models. The Model 12A had a round barrel, while B & C had octagonal barrels. The Model 12B was a short barrel rifle.

    Value depends on the actual model and condition. I have seen this at shows and online for anywhere from $250 to $500. Most of them, like my father's model 12C, are kept for their sentimental value, rather than as a valuable antique firearm. But as I remember, the Model 12 was an accurate, dependable rifle. I used my father's 12C to dispatch a lot of small game back in the 1960's.

    This firearm was introduced in 1909 and the last one, a model 12C was produced in 1929. Remington can actually tell you the approximate date of manufacture of yours based on the serial number.

    Actually, Remington made the Model 12 until 1936 after which it was replaced by the Model 121.
