    Ted,

    I have a pre-64 three pin trap I would consider selling. Gun is in good solid shape, has a Bishop Trap stock on it. Will post pictures later.

    LOP is 13 3/8" with Kickeez Pad. Can be spaced out or add a Gracoil unit.

    Other side

    Good Solid shooter. Few marks on the receiver, nothing bad and blue is worn through on left side of the barrel where forearm rubbed against it. I have $900 in it and will send it to your dealer for that.

    Full choke gun.

    If interested e-mail me

    This thread confirms my suspicions. There are no original Pre-64 Model 12s for sale anymore. All have been "improved" from what the good old boys in New Haven, Ct did.

    Ted,

    Here is a better shot. The bluing wear is down to the steel at the back and gradually fades out on this side as you can see. The other side has a little mark about an 1/8 wide and 3" long.

    Ted: I think I know what you are looking for. Good luck in your search. I do have an original Model 12 Pigeon Grade that I am "considering" selling. (Maybe)!! However, the previous owner opted to have an adjustable comb installed. Beautiful wood; but it does have the adjustable comb, which makes it not factory original. Again, all original to include the wood; just the adjustable comb hardware has been installed. If interested I can send pictures. See above email address. Thanks Ed
