Sold!! For sale is a 1954 Model 12 Heavy Duck. 3" magnum. 30" barrel, Vent rib by Simmons. Upgraded, uncheckered wood. Monte Carlo. Serial number series is 155xxxx. White line butt pad. DAC is 1 3/8". 13 5/8" LOP which is absolutely the correct length of pull from the factory for this duck gun. It took into consideration the layers of clothing needed in a duck blind. The bore is perfect and is .730. the choke constriction is .035(full and marked that way on the barrel. The barrel markings indicate the Winchester shells of that era. Bluing wear is non-existant in visible areas. It may have been re-blued. The wood is really nicely figured and has normal handling marks. Asking shipped or best reasonable offer. Contact Jim Veta. 310-291-1784

Nice gun Jim. Problem with these old duck guns, it is not a good idea to shoot the required steel through the full chokes. You could open the chokes up, but I am not sure that the barrel walls would hold up with steel shot. Nice classic though. Jon

That would be true. You wouldn't want to shoot steel shot through this full choke. That is is why there are so many companies now that make Non-toxic loads. There are a lot of shooters out there shooting their old side by sides and old pump guns again because now they can. This is a gun to be enjoyed shooting ducks or upland game. Lead is still ok in most parts of the country to shoot upland game. Steel shot requirements for waterfowl should not deter someone from buying an old classic Model 12.

It looks like someone put an old duck gun to use by turing it into a trap gun. Rib, aftermarket wood and all. Pretty gun.

Hmm, let me see if a family friend would be interested...he's been wanting a 2nd shotgun for him and his fam.
