    You've identified where the reference comes from. 2 pin are older and are the milled rib guns that are more sought after.

    contact dave riffle@earthlink.net. dave has a book on model 12,s that is very informative. there is a book on model 12,s by george madis that is very helpful also. you can find these books on ebay or gunbroker.com once in awhile. receiver on top of a 2 pin gun is milled. receiver on a 3 pin gun is smooth. MOST simmons ribs were aftermarket & most put on field guns that were converted to trap or skeet.just as good as winchester factory ribs but do not have much collector value like original factory guns. hope this helps dwain

    Unless the proof mark is in the right spot. A factory simmons rib gun is a truly valuble item!
