    I have a model 12 that has a vent rib. I don't see any markings as to whose rib it is. The only thing that caught my eye is that the middle rib support has what look like 3 pins that maybe hold the rib to the post. The barrel is marked "WS1". Is this maybe factory installed?

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    The posts are rectangular in shape.

    Pat,

    Yes, it has the duckbill extension. What is the significance of the 3 pin rib? Was this Winchester installed or aftermarket?

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    Wayne,
    The three pin rib you describe was a factory installed rib. I would guess the serial number range would be 1,8xx,xxx -1,9xx,xxx.

    fnj682,

    Thanks for the information, and yes the S/N is in that range.
