    All kidding aside. Nice gun. You were lucky to find one with such nice wood. I'd never think to offer you 1000 for it, but, then again....lol Jim

    I agree. Shoot it. You will lose $400 at best but the enjoyment will surpass the $$

    A friend of mine purchased two model 12 pigeon grades for $265.00 each from Marshall fields back in the 60's. Some guy ordered them and he died before he could pick them up. The wife of the deceased did not want the guns so my friend purchased them from the same store. Both guns came with left hand wood on them??? Don't know if the guy who ordered them was left handed or not. My friend shot one of them in 1968 and he won the Waukesha gun club, club championship. He then gave both guns to his son. His son doesn't shoot, so they remain in a closet with the box and tags to this day. One has 75 targets shot through it, the other was never fired. Both guns have fantastic wood on the stock and forends.

    I can't understand why shooters get excited about the
    "Y" series. They are the economy version of the original
    Model 12. The receiver and many of the internal parts are
    castings. They look good on the outside, but their not
    the "Model 12".
