Hope you have a lot of money set aside for this purchase. If it exists, it is very rare. There aren't a lot of pigeon grade heavy duck guns and one w/ a 32" barrel would be even harder to come by.

While there was never a cataloged 32 " vent rib DUCK gun we can never say never to what happened at the custom shop. However , it would have to be a round post donut base vent rib or a round post vent rib to have any chance at being FACTORY. Jeff

As said above most likely if you find one it may be the only one as Winchester never made these as production guns. 32" and vent rib was not cataloged. 30" vent rib or 32 solid rib was

MIA,

In your professional opinion what would you worth an original 30" Duck with the round post/donut base rib? The gun is 99.99% blue, 100% pristene everything else, and it has a monty carlo high figured set of wood, perfectly checkered and done in oil? I know what $ amount I'm thinking but want to pick your thoughts.

At least $2000 and if it is a Deluxe Duck maybe $3000 . I paid $ 1300 for my Donut Duck and its only 90% and was damn glad to find one. Jeff

bigbore613,
I think you might be in the neighborhood but yet a wee bit lower than I'm thinking. I figure the gun aught to fetch around $3500.00 so were not too far apart.


MIA,
I'd jump (double jump) on a gun of that caliber for your number too, find me another one to replace it. I'll bet you've never seen one, yet held one in your hands, and probably if your in the gun business the rest of your life you never will, that's how few were produced. I'm not being a smart @ss just explaining the rarity of this gun. I've been collecting 12's since I've been a kid, chasing good ones everywhere, and I only know of one other.

What is the value of a 32 inch heavy duck, no rib, 98% and manuf in 1953? Will it hurt the value to have a Simmons donut rib installed?

I give up looking for a 32"mod 12 duck solid rib and found a 90Trem a lot easier a lot of my left coast pot (annie ) shooters would give 2K for one too Jon
