I recently got this from a friend. It is a Winchester Model 12 from 1951. It has a heavy barrel with high rib. The make of the barrel is unknown. It has a screw in choke also unkown type (full choke). 31 inch barrel, 12 guage of course. Antone stock 14 5/8 LOP. The gun just kind of interested me, so I bought it. Any thoughts? I shot it one time at a games shoot and it busted birds from the 40 yard line really nicely.

No typical Winchester markings or proof marks of the barrel?
No proof marks of any kind. It fits me like a glove and I think that is what made me buy it. When I did shoot it there was hardly any recoil. I guess that is because of the heavy barrel. It just kind of grows on you. It also has a roll over comb which is nice.

There is no legend on the barrel, that is why it is so hard to identify it.

You posted the barrel is very heavy which leads me to believe might be a Heavy Duck barrel while no barrel legend it's still a mystery? Do you have a picture of the muzzle end diameter wall thickness? Does the rib extension beyond the barrel extension onto top of the receiver?
