    I have a nice Model 12 Trap that I am going to list for sale. I want to be accurate with information about the gun. I have looked at several sources and have had conflicting information on when the gun was manufactured. The serial # is 19673XX. Could one of you model 12 experts please provide me with the real answer on the guns birthday? Thanks for your time.

    My book shows production ending in 1963 with serial number 1962001. It states there was a clean up of production from 1964-1966 ending with serial number 1970875. Most of these model 12's were high grade(Super Pigeon). If you have a standard grade in this serial range it is most likely to have been a replacement receiver on a repair job. When production resumed in 1972 serial number started at Y2000100.
