    What is the reason for the high cost of Y models ? I have seen NIB Y's selling for hundreds more than NIB pre 64's. Whats up ?

    Gunbroker, Guns international,Guns America,Auction Arms, Cabelas, Dave Riffle. Right now Riffle has one NIB Y for $2900+. Auction arms has a pre 64 NIB for $2600. I bought a 95% Pigeon off this site 2 years ago for less than half that.

    I don't understand it. Take a look at some of those site's and see what they are asking for Y's. I was wondering why the high prices. I thought I am missing out on something !

    Some seller is trolling for a sucker. No way is a new Y model 12 worth more than a new Pre-64 Model 12.

    There are some Y-model 12 Super Pigeons going high dollars. Some of these are actually a pre-64 guns made with inventory parts w/Y serial numbers.

    Came from the custom shop.

    It is easy to tell if you look into the shell opening at underside of the top of the reciever, it will be a machined surface, not a rough cast surface as in the Y model.

    I check the auction sites daily, I am a beginning collector and am always looking for a good buy...There are a few Y models for "sale" at high prices, but there is usually something special about them...NIB, Mod. choke, skeet, but I don't see any of them selling. There are also many M 12s for sale by people that are not knowledgeable about the M 12 and are asking crazy high prices, and many with misleading descriptions...buyer beware. For me it is really interesting to watch the prices and the different gun for sael....JMHO...WC
