    I have a chance to buy a model 12 that was purchased new in or around 1970.It has roughly 100 rds thru it and looks brand new.The owner's wife gave it to him as a gift and he never got into trap shooting so it has set in the original box for 40 years.I don't know but I think it is a Y model.What is it worth?

    Joe it,s worth what your willing to pay if you like it . To me If it,s a Y model no more then $1,000.00 and it would need to be as new with box and tags .

    I understand some Y-Models were made with machined steel receivers. How can you tell the difference?

    Mine has none of the above. No rib pins but a screw at the top of the rib holding it on. The receiver is a dark rich blue and strongly attracts a magnet!!

    The screw in the top of the rib in front of the front sight signifies it is a Y model 12 unless Bbl has been changed.

    A new in the box even if is is a Y model will bring $1250-1500 even if shot only 100 times.

    I love the "original" M-12 traps but I won't hold my nose at the sight of a Y model.
    Even though it is a Y model they sure are not making them anymore and I would try to buy it if it was fairly reasonable.
    I cannot imagine how much one would cost if Winchester started making Y models today.

    I think those opinions are way over inflated as to price

    this gun is used? but like new condition? y model? assuming 30 inch full and a target gun- range is 500-750

    regards from Iowa

    I agree. It is no collectors item.

    If the serial number is before 2,000,000 and has a Y it still is pre 64. Jeff

    There's the Blue Book and there's the real world. Forget the Blue Book nonsense. You will search long and hard before you see a ANIB Y model in the three-figure range. A collector item? Most people owning one would like to think. If you like it and it works well, consider it a shooter. If you can get it for less than $1000, by all means. Otherwise, get it over with and offer $1000-1250 and don't worry about it again.

    Jeff is right. Some Model 12s from the pre cast receiver period are stamped with the Y to comply with the "act". They will have serial numbers under 2 million. Most of these are Super Pigeons, I think.
