    Just purchased a Model 12 Trap, 1972 Y model. How do I remove the barrel. I suppose it has something to do with the roll pin above the magazine.
    Thanks

    First make sure that the action is closed!

    Push the roll pin up and rotate the magazine tube so that the pin is at the other side of the barrel.



    Holding the pistol grip in your right hand, rotate the whole front end 90 degrees

    Pull it apart.

    to reassemble ... o it all in reverse order.

    And when putting it back together make sure you keep a firm grip on the forearm and don't let the action bar scrape the side of the frame. You'll see many a Model 12 with a marred frame because it was not put back together properly.

    "First make sure that the action is closed!

    Push the roll pin up and rotate the magazine tube so that the pin is at the other side of the barrel.


    Holding the pistol grip in your right hand, (((( slide the forearm forward to release the bar from the bolt)))) then,,,, rotate the whole front end 90 degrees

    Pull it apart.

    Another small step Ahab.

    I think the original Winchester instruction manual called for you to pull the trigger first. Correct me if I'm wrong!!

    I have taken a lot of mod 12s apart and always had to wrap my right hand around the receiver (in front of the trigger) to get a better grip and more leverage, especially if the gun is very tight. 1/4 turn counter clockwise and off with the barrel. Larry Evans

    A co-worker inherited a model 12 field gun and would like to get a copy of an owners manual. Any good spots to download one. Thanks,Richard

    Hap gave good advice but I will add one small point. If you have not taken a few barrels off it may be a good idea to rotate the magazine tube and then pull the tube forward by hand and then slide the forend forward. This will insure that the threads in the magazine tube are fully disengaged. When putting the barrel back on, make sure the magazine tube is completely inserted into the receiver. I would recommend finding someone at your club to show you how to do this job. It is very simple once you know how but often reading instructions on how to do it can be confusing. The written instructions will tell you to push the magazine pin,they will not tell you to push the magazine pin until it catches and then push it some more.
