    The only reason I bought this beast was for the wood and it is killer.

    Dwain,

    $100, yeh sure,LOL. What is the year? I suspect that it's fairly old. Nice looking wood. Mine, not quite as nice is from 1928. I don't think it's going in the marsh today. Good luck, Bob

    The gun was made in 1957 and yes I only paid $100.00 for it as it is out of time and the guy just wanted to get rid of it at the gun show last weekend.

    dbc, you wouldn't like to post some pictures of your B carved wood? We would like to see that one. SX1, what rib is on your new gun? It looks like the round post, a fairly scarce variation if it is Winchester manufacture.

    Out of time means it will fire before the bolt locks up. Not a good thing but with the right gun smith easy fix.

    sx1skeet, The "out of time" you refer to is normal for all Model 12 Winchesters. None of them had "interruptors" which would keep them from firing until they were locked up. I currently have about 8 model 12s in various gauges and none of them have interruptors. For a dealer at a gun show to not know that he deserved to get screwed. Take a model 12 to the range load one round in the chamber and then fill the magazine. Now pull the trigger and the gun will fire. Hold the trigger back and keep pumping the action. It will fire as each shell enters the chamber. They have always worked that way. I am not sure it was possible to get an aftermarket trigger group that wouldn't do this.

    Out of time means that when the bolt is not closed it will still go off. Now this does not mean closed but when the bolt is still half opened it will still go off. Now this gun makes 47 in my model 12 collection and this is not braging this is what I have. Some on here have seen them.
