    Someone has fitted a factory 2-pin front end to a plain receiver. What are the cuts on the bottom of the receiver and barrel extension ? Jeff

    How is the barrel removed from the receiver? Am I missing something?

    They can be renumbered or have the receiver extension changed from the old barrel assembly.. Happy new year, Jeff

    db bill-

    i have seen the duckbill rib ended on the receiver like this before. another way i have seen this was with the rib faded into the striations on the top of the action. i think simmons did both of them. this is some kind of mix and match?

    Bill, looks to me as if someone bought a new ribless receiver and had the S/N stamped to match his trap grade bbl. and magazine because this receiver has no visible proof mark on it, but the bbl. does. If the gun had originated that way it would have the WP proof mark beside the rib on both the bbl. and the receiver.

    I have a 20 gauge Model 12 that has the same type of rib on the receiver. I had Simmons install it on a standard grade Model 12 when I had them put on a ventilated rib. The "duckbill"extension is an option from Simmons.

    If there is no visible proof mark on the reciever and it is on the barrel, it was probably a solid ribbed gun at one time and someone had a vent rib added. This is why the proof on the reciever is covered by the rib extension. Maybe??
    Just a possibility.

    Thanks, Mike

    A plain barrel receiver is the same as a solid rib.This one is cobbled together. Jeff

    I realize that those recievers are the same, but the serial #'s match, and there is a proof mark on the barrel. If this gun was a solid rib gun originally that would be right, and the other on top of the reciever also would be right. If someone who owned this gun before didn't care for rhe solid rib and sent it back to winchester to have a vent rib put on it(two pin), that would explain the rib extension covering the other proof mark? I have seen guns with this situation before. But anything is possible.


    Thanks, Mike
