    Bruce- i didn't think monte carlo stocks were even invented around that time? the reason i am asking a friend has a model 12 trap from the 50's and he thought monte carlos started around that time? i love model 12's, i feel they are the best natural feeling trap gun ever produced. should someone find one that fits, you will have a target crunching machine for life. i had a pre 64 with Anton wood that fit me perfect. sometimes when i pulled the trigger and thought no way i would hit the target, i still broke it. i had someone talk me out of it, i was young and foolish. i purchased that gun years ago for $385.00. friend of mine who recently passed away purchased a standard grade model 12 trap and a pigeon grade from marshell fields in the 60's. the pigeon grade was $285.00, don't recall what the standard trap grade price was. he showed me the receipts, could not belive the price of the guns at that time.
