    Can a model 12 trap gun be shot to death. I found a 2-pin for sale that looks to be in fair shape but when you close the action that last 1\4" where the bolt kinda lifts up into place its goes real easy. easyer than a field model that I bought not long ago but you would expect a trap model to have been shot way more than a field model.Is there any tell tale way to know if one is worn out.

    Model 12s are live VW Beetles!

    They never wear out, but occasionally, some parts might need replacing!

    Any competent gunsmith can tighten it up for you, at minimal cost.

    I read that the headspace can become a problem. I think this means that the shell it not locked into battery and when it fires it moves back a bit and hits the bolt.

    It only gets worse.

    get ahold of Stu Wright. He has a process to weld up and re cut the locking recess in the receiver.
