This Model 12 has a 30” Nickel Steel barrel with a Simmons 3/8” Vent Rib with a small white middle site and a ½” red front site. Its serial number is in the 430XXX range. The gun shows very little wear on its blue in the usual carry places. The top of the receiver has a matte finish. The stock has LOP @ 14 ¾” and drop at heel is 2 ¼”. It has a white line pistol grip cap and a white line soft recoil pad. It has Extra Deluxe wood. The gun is not marked Trap. Gun locks up tight and does not rattle with wear.
Now the bad news. I lent the gun to a friend? who said he wanted to buy it, but he wanted to shoot it at a couple of rounds of trap first. When he brought it back, he said he didn’t have the money to buy it. I then found a big chip out of the top front side of the forearm. (see photos) EX friend said he didn’t do it, and it may have been done before he took it. I don’t know for sure and can’t make him pay. Anyway, my $1250.00 Model 12 is now for sale for $800.00. Shipping to your FFL is $35.00. Thanks, Jerry (1oldshooter

ALF-99,Simmons rib would suggest to me a buildup.Not to take anything away from this gun,but from pics. I would guess it has been reblued.Still a very nice Mod. 12.

onlym12's,you are right.I believe at one time Simmons put ribs on for Win.in the white.These came from Win.with a Simmons rib.Although I think these were much later date after I looked at the serial # of this gun.1926:Serial#-423,057-464,564 were produced.I should have known a much later date was not stainless steel.Had my mind somewhere else.

Hello 1 old shooter ;
