    Yesterday I purchased a Model 12 trigger assembly off of ebay. After purchasing it I noted that the assembly does not include the "shell guard". I examined one of my Model 12 trigger groups and this shell guard is a stamped piece of metal that rides along the right side of the shell carrier. My question is that this assembly will be used as a backup. I do not shoot doubles with the gun. Would this assembly work if I do not place a shell in the magazine? (As it seems this part is part of the process that delivers the shell from the magazine to the chamber). Thanks. Ed

    Most people around here take them out purposely and the trigger works fine. It's only function is to hold shells in the magazine.

    That would probably be the "shell stop" which is a separate part. However this so called "shell guard" is a part of the trigger assembly and pivots along side the shell carrier. Ed

    The correct name is "cartridge guide", and the trigger asy. will work in your gun without it.
    It's purpose is to keep shells from the mag. correctly aligned when pumping the gun,they also prevent shells from rolling toward the ejection port if the gun is canted when operating the pump.

    Thanks. That makes sense. I want to have this assembly converted to a release and will be using it only as a spare. Ed

    Alot of the late production guns didn't have this and none of the early guns did. It will work fine as it most likely came without one from the factory
