1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Just trying to find a value of a rare Model 12. It is a 16ga 30" bbl yes 30" they only made it for 3 years. This gun is 97%. I know pics would help but don't have any as of ye. So what would this gun be worth.

    A rare bird like that is what a willing seller will sell it for and a willing buyer will pay for it.
    Is that gun rarer than a factory VR 16ga?

    I have owned a good number 16 ga and 20 ga 30" guns. If it is a plain barrel in excellent condition anywhere beteen $600 and $900 depending where you are. If it is a solid rib from $900 - $1200. If it is a trap solid rib a bit more. I know these are wide ranges but it also depends on what part of the country you are in.

    There is a 20 gauge 30" with a solid rib on guns international right now for $1400 and it has not sold. Here is the link.

    http://www.gunsinternational.com/Winchester-12-20-Ga-.cfm?gun_id=100213493

    If it is a typical worn and well used model 12 with silver receiver $400 - $600.

    This is my opinion and only meant to help good luck with your purchase.

    They also made skeet 16 gauges for women and young men to shoot in the 12 gauge event

    97% huh, not 95% or 98%.... how do you come up with a grade like that? I've seen it in coin collecting where they have 65 or 70 different MS grades, but 97% on a gun, what does that mean?
