    My friend has a really beautiful pre-64 Model 12 in nearly perfect condition, but here's what's strange. It has 4 holes on the left top side of the receiver with small screws. This is done so well, that it looks factory. My question is is this some sort of factory gun that I've never seen before?

    I would guess that PDW1938 is right. It may have had the scope mounted on it before the person had that Simmons/Moneymaker rib installed.

    Probably used with a scope for a deer gun with slugs or used in card shoots.

    NOT factory! Does not harm function, but does lower the value.

    Looks like it's for the old Weaver side-mount bases.

    Thanks Barfin, I almost barfed up my lunch. What a scary mind, Tron can't deal with that.

    Tron I would leave it alone and shoot it. You could have the holes welded up and bead blast the top of the receiver and reblue it. Depends on how annal you are I also have several of the Duck Bill ends if you want to make it look factory. Money is an object I like can't figure out why?

    I spoke to P3at he said you are like a storm threatening you may come down hope you make it this year

    Agree with the above. Not factory. (but a pretty good job)

    yep, scope mount. not worth the time and money to fix it. ignore it and wear the gun out shooting.
