    Saw a Model 12 in a gun shop today. Serial number 617880 on the receiver. The magazine tube was stainless with model 1300 type forend. Looks like it was maybe a replacement. The gun was in decent shape with a monte carlo stock and vent rib. Anybody got an estimate on the value and year of manufacture?

    1930 should be the year of manufacture and the value w/o seeing it $600 at the top end

    If you are a serious collector of winchesters then contact the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody Wyoming? I think that is where I used to get letters on the Model 21's I used to collect.
