sounds like it was originally a "black diamond" model 12 that has had the wood changed on it. original black diamond wood is usually very nice,either in monte carlo or english grip with a black diamond inlaid in the stock close to the receiver.original black diamond wood is hard to come by as most model 12 folks that have any hang on to it.dwain

i haven,t seen any sell for quite some time.given the variables in the economy today,you might luck out & find a nice set reasonable. i wouldn,t hold your breath though, but be careful as there are some fakes out there.dwain
