    Can anyone tell me the first year of production for a Model 12 in 28 gauge? Also,what year did Winchester STOP stamping "NICKEL STEEL" on their barrels?
    I realize that there may be some intermixing & overlapping of years due to production requirements. The latest I have actually seen is a 20ga Serial # 2691XX which would have been made in early 1922.
    Thanks.

    I don't know about 28 gauge, but I've got a 12 gauge field gun dated 1917 that my grandfather bought. My daughter is going to use it, four generations later, which is pretty neat.

    I borrowed a Winchester Madis book from a friend & found the information to be correct.
    Thank you to Barfin for sending the information. And to all the others who took the time to look at my thread. Tom.
