    Yes.

    They shoot very well.

    Cycle 2.75 shells as well as a gun that specifically is designed for them (ie regular field or trap, etc version) provided that condition is good with all appropriate functioning parts of mechanism in good working condition.

    Bobby, I have had mine (3") for 30 years and while it's a well made gun, when shooting the 3" shells, it frequently will not chamber the second shot. This is not a problem of the shells (have tried many) and when popular in the duck blind many years ago, this second shot issue alway came up. If looking for one to shoot trap with, they are fine. Model 12's have always had excellent factory chokes...just make sure the one you get has not been altered/opened.

    Solid rib model 12 ducks were the standard- I usually see them go for $500 dollars plus or minus 100 dollars

    32 inchers are just slightly more valuable

    Now the ventilated rib ones are the rare ones

    Gene, I'll buy all the Mint original condition 32" Duck guns you can come up w/ for a whole lot more than the $500 you stated. $500 won't come close to getting you a mint 30".

    I have two and they shoot very nicely. Don't want to carry one quail hunting but they will reach out and knock down ducks. Both of mine have very full chokes and I don't shoot steel through them, bismuth is pretty expensive but it does work. BTW mine are not for sale.

    If you are into 'pot shoots' ....there is nothing like a 3" Win Mod 12 duck gun!
    They will reach waaaaay out there with #4s and #6s!

    Maybe that's why I hav4 6 of them!

    I looked for a solid rib for quite awhile and ended up paying $900.00 for mine. It is over ninety percent and I couldn't find a lot of them around.

    If anyone out there has serial number 1,600,000 ("on the nose")and it's for sale, I would like to own it again. Model 12 Duck, 3" with 30" solid rib, full. I was foolish and sold it approx 20 years ago. What a "crow killing"
    machine!!! I'll never forget that gun or serial number.
    Thanks.

    I've owned this 3 inch gun for several years and it's a smokin machine! A field model with a Simmons rib and nice wood. Hap

    Love the model 12 3" heavy duck solid matte rib!
    This was the first gun I duck and goose hunted with. My biological father had one, now he is AWOL for about 15 years and so is the gun; his was 100% condition at the time.

    I purchased one about 3 years ago with a 30" solid matte rib. I would say a rating of 90-95%, a previous owner did not realize that blood takes off bluing and there is a finger print up at the top of the barrel.
    I paid 900.00, mainly because of my childhood love for them and they are getting harder and harder to find in good condition and orginal. Mine is orginal down to the butt pad. I shoot bismuth (reload) out of it for ducks and geese ocassionaly.
    These guns are WAR-HORSES; as most people know.
    I also shoot a 1927 model 12 30" nickle steel solid matte rib. This is the 2/ 3/4 chambers. It is all original field model with minimal blueing wear; rare for the nickle steel that old. Great duck gun; I also shoot that using bismuth. Damn thing from afar looks like a 20 guage. The frame is smaller than the ones made after WWII.

    Love the model 12!
    Matt Riplinger

    What I think are two American classics, I own them of both, Remington model 3200 Magnum and the Winchester Model 12 Magnum. Both chambered for 3".

    Semper Fi!
