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.

    What number is stamped on the rear end of the reciever just under the threaded hole where the tang screws in? Provide a picture if possible.

    Correct, not a picture of the serial number. Need a picture of the number stamped at the butt/rear/back end of the reciever showing the gauge stamp. It is the only way to verify if the item was produced as a 28ga. If it is stamped 16 or 20, then it is not a 28ga reciever. If the stamp is missing that indicates it has been altered or ground off and thus still a 16ga or 20ga.

    Also, hard to tell from the picture, but is the inside of the reciever blued or still in the white?

    Even if a 16ga or 20ga if it's in good shape (can't tell from photos) that's not a bad price.

    Get a 16ga or 20ga that is mechanically sound, but not so good looking. Use it as a sacrifical parts gun to build up a custom 16ga or 20ga gun with a fairly nice engraving job. You can customize anyway you wish. Rib or not. Fancy checkered wood, or field wood. Since the gauge stamp has been ground off it is doubtful it was ever a 28ga gun anyway, so, I would go the easier and cheaper 16ga or 20ga route.

    hi it is my understanding that regardles of the 28 ga. stamp at the rear of reciever all TRUE FACTORY 28 ga. guns were 20 ga. recievers. winchester never made a smaller reciever than a 20 ga. they did have there own forged necked down bolts. these r rare as heck to find and as ugly as hell. conversions were done on 20 ga. guns using the 20 ga. bolts 28 ga. barrels were fitted and if u didnt have 28 ga. mag tube they sleeved the 20 ga. tube another way to see if it is a conversion. they also did to 16 ga. these dont shuck for s--t. as for the engraving on the top of reciever this could be ordered as they had a custom shop. this is what i learned from talking to the factory people back in the 60s. howard

    If you have the time and $$ Roger Eubanks does very nice work on Winchester Model 12's especially the smaller gauges.

    With better pictures, you may sell your receiver for that price or close. I assume that most guys who build 28 gauge Model 12s from scratch stamp the back end. There are other ways to identify an original 28 gauge receiver.
