Someone told me he saw a set of Model 12's, 12-20-28-410, unfired with consecutive serial numbers. I was not aware that they were "sets". Apparently, these were for gun dealers that sold Winchester products. What would something like that be worth?

I was told they were all Model 12's, I don't know a great deal about Model 12's. That sounds strange about model 12ignorance living in KY.

My best guess would be for new, vented rib;
12ga $1500.
20ga. $1500.
28ga. $5000.
410ga. $6000.

Total $14000.

Consecutive numbers - $3000.

New total $11000.

Try to sell it yourself or auction house + seller's premium.

good luck, Notime2

Not my guns. Friend told me these sets were made available at the time to dealers only. The serial numbers are consecutive so they would all be one brand, Winchester.

For a complete M12 set you would also need a 16 ga. I had a Browning set:
2 20 ga, 2 28 ga & 2 m42's. A standard & a high grade of each ga. Sold them to Cabelas for $6000 (I think).

I have also seen the Illinois 410 Model 12. I believe Barry Roach on this site has too. When I seen it the price was $4000. Unfortunately I didn't have it!

There was another Model 12 410 said to be in Reno.

The 410 model 12 is a counterfeit there has never been a factory gun presented at any time for inspection. This comes up every few years and it is bull shit. I know the man who made the roll dies and I knew the man who built the guns and I am real familiar with the whole deal. PS stainless Winchesters only had stainless barrels. I have never seen a documented gun that was all stainless.

Thanks for the input. And Brother Hale is correct, Dr Parrott is a Model 12 aficionado.

I recently heard there was a four gun set of model 12's in a fur buying shed in southern Minnesota, I will find out the name of the town. I was told they were 12ga, 16ga, 20ga, and28ga. Have not seen them with my own eyes, I will find out more info in the morning.

"While only the lengths as listed here for the various gauges were available as listed in the catalogs, we must bear in mind that a few very rare special lengths were made. The writer[George Madis]has inter-department correspondence and work orders for the barrel shop that lists special barrels, such a lot of twenty-four barrels in the thirty-two inch for length for the sixteen gauge, made for the Model Twelve in 1937. Another lot of barrels, four in all, were made in the .410 bore, twenty-six inch length, for the Model Twelve. Some thirty-two inch barrels were made for the twenty gauge, and a number of twenty-four inch barrels were made for the twelve gauge."
