I love mod 12 trap guns. I have 2 pigeon grades that are both engraved and have super wood. I love to just admire them and love and shoot them as well.These guns are over 50 years old and I started shooting with these and have a deep appreciation for the quality and the way they point.

Perazzi,
Got a ?? I have a Model 50 that is marked Featherweight under the reciever. Ser #176xxxA. The 26" barrel is marked WS-1 and rib Simmons. Did Winchester make a featherweight skeet or did someone stick the featherweight barrel on this reciever. Overall condition 99%. Thanks.

I wish I had one or two more Belgian Superposeds. There is just something about them. It seems like everyone now wants ported barrels and removeable choke tubes,etc. But the Superposed is in a class by itself. I am looking for a 32" Broadway Trap, but havn't found one in my price range yet. Oh well, maybe at the Kane co show tomorrow.

CO-369,
Winchester did make a lightweight skeet gun in the Model 50. The barrel was 26" and marked WS-1 with a Simmons vent rib. The receiver was a lightweight alloy. A nice gun with skeet loads but I ne ver fired it with anything heavier than 3 dram load of 1 1/8 oz. of no 8 shot. You could tell it went off.

striper,

Like you the Mod 12 is my baby, nothing else compares. Had one since I was 18 years old and still have the same one in the collection. The gun has well over 3/4's of a million rounds thru it and is 85 years old and looks and functions like new.

ol 12

Don, the Space Gun makes me wonder if the creater used to design Wehrmacht anti-tank rifles during WWII?<br>
<br>
I've never shot or have even seen a real Space Gun. How does the design compare to a conventional trap gun for trap?

If the space gun were not so darned hard to load, it would have been a great gun. Realize the "in line" thing forces the recoil straight back. It is also a big gun and that combination makes a very soft shooting rig. Despite the unconventional configuration, they move very fast and point quite well. The trigger is fast. Just hard to load and it doesn't break down for transport.
