    Could someone tell me the difference between model 12 early and post model 12 y series. Is the y a good gun? Thanks

    The "Y" guns are sub-par as Model 12's go. They could never be considered equal or better?? than an original pre 64...no way.

    I don't have religion, but I have plenty of M12's......a "Y" gun will wear out, I have seen a pigeon with a cracked receiver for starters...they are junk.

    Maybe that is why they are cheeper? The quality is not as high in a "Y" model.IMO

    IMHO...If you going to shoot it, what's the difference? I've got both, the old one is a bit more solid sounding when slammed shut but they both break targets the same. I believe the main difference is the Pre 64's actions were machined from solid steel stock and the "Y"'s were machined from investment castings. I see no problem with either. And to Wayne..My "Y" trap has many, many thousand rounds thru it and has never had any adjustments made on the rings. Still tight as new. My old one has had the chamber ring changed and the gun rebuilt by Wright's once. Not really sure how much it was shot, I'm the third owner.
