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.

    F/S Winchester M-12 3" Duck with factory vent rib. The gun has been around ducks. It would make a great platform for a long yardage project. $795 PM for more photos if needed

    Can you provide SN, barrel length, and measured choke constriction?
    Thanks,
    Tom

    The serial # range is 1623xxx

    The barrel length is 30"

    I don't have a barrel mic but I can try to borrow one and get that measured. It is definitely tight choked.

    There is some pitting that is seen in the photos.

    Is there old fashion Simmons name stamped on the side of the rib?? It will be in script very small you have to look close. I think they did the donut ribs for Winchester

    There is no Simmons name on the side of the rib. MY understanding is that ribs installed by Simmons will be marked Simmons. Ribs installed by Winchester with Simmons parts will not be marked. The matting lines are wavy and not straight.

    I believe that factory do-nut & post ribs were offered between 1955 and 1957. This gun was mfg in 1955. Probably the real deal, somewhat scarce. Check for the lead weight under the pad. Thanks, Tom Stephens

    I can't believe this gun has not sold. I have sold similar guns in a little better shape for as much as $1200.00. This gun would be a great restoration project for someone and you could shoot it forever.

    The gun is the real deal. It should have sold six times by now. You can't fake one for this price.
