    Just got back my Model 12 in 16 gauge from Wright's for a total restore and you won't believe how nice it looks!!

    I mean, it looks like new out of the box. Outstanding job and nice people to work with.

    I would highly recommend them for any Model 12 restore as I couldn't believe my eyes.

    Now, the only problem I have is it seems the breech bolt has falling too far back in the receiver to catch on the action slide. Any suggestions?

    I would send it back, if it was restoration that should have been addressed. MR II

    I think it should just be a simply fix of getting it to hook but I can't for the life me figure out what I'm doing wrong.

    I called Wright's when I had a question on an SX1. They connected me to their gunsmith. He was friendly, patient, and best of all really knew what he was talking about.

    I'm sure if you call them, they can solve your problem.

    I figured it out. It was my bad.

    I'm still in awe at how nice this gun looks. If you would have seen it before you would have sworn it was a different gun.

    Ljutic owners! Do not rule Wright's out if you need work on your lguns! I sent one to him which was built in 92-93 era. Was a fabulous gun but deperately needed reblued! This gun was too good of a gun to sit in the cabinet in its condition. They tightened foreend(glass bedded the iron), tightened the action as it was loose, reblued etc. Grand total of $500+ and was returned 3 1/2 weeks earlier than they forecasted on the phone! When I called Ljutic, it was obvious the bill was going to be in the $1000-$1200 area. No brainer to me. Workmanship was great and the gun looks new except grass stains here and there!

    A number of years ago I had a problem with my browing at the Grand. I went to the Browning factory reps. and was told that they could not touch my gun because it had a release trigger. The browning rep. then told me to go to Wrights gun shop. I did and have been back with other people that needed help on numerous occasions. Both Stu and his Son are great people. Last year on my way to the Grand I stopped by there shop, the young lady who was in charge gave me a tour of the shop WOW. Just be careful of the big wild dog....

    I have had Wright's update the insides of a Super X1 and they did a great job at a fair price. I know they do a lot of Model 12 restoration work. I have a 4 digit Winchester Model 61 octagon barrel 22 lr. pump. Would Wright's be a good place to get this gun restored?

    I have a 682X. Bought it as an O/U to shoot doubles. Bought a single barrel to make it a combo. I had Herb Orre choke a gun years ago, and it was really great.
    I contacted Stu Wright, and asked him if he could duplicate Herb's work due to their relationship. I asked him for a choke to use from 16yd. to 25. He did a great job on it. BTW, it really breaks targets cleanly from 27 as well.

    P.S. If anyone is interested in it, we can talk. O/U also has Briley thin wall chokes. Adjustable stock by NCP Products. Nice shape. $2000.00

    You can contact me at r.gudin@att.net

    How about posting some pictures of your newly restored model 12?
