OLD WINCHESTER MODEL 12 MADE IN 1914-15
Priced to sell
Caliber/Gauge: 12 gauge
Description: MODEL 12 COLLECTORS TAKE NOTE. Here is a well used but reliable Winchester nickel steel barrel Model 12. Based on the serial numbers it looks to be a 1914. (Don't hold me to that, but that is what the serial number shows.) This is It is devoid of finish but is the kind of gun that every hunter wants in his collection. The blue book shows this gun to range anywhere between $300-$800. But the following additions would apply. Add 20% for 32 in. barrel (must verify). Add 10% for pre-WWII mfg. If you are looking for a very good ole gun at a reasonable price, then this is the gun.
The Model 1912 (shortened to Model 12 in 1919) was the next step from the Winchester Model 1897 hammer-fired shotgun, which in turn had evolved from the earlier Winchester Model 1893 shotgun. The Model 12 was based in part on the M1893/97 design by John Browning. It was an entirely new design initially available in 20 gauge only (12 and 16 gauge guns were not sold until 1914). The Model 12 was the first truly successful internal hammer pump-action shotgun ever produced. Its tubular magazine was loaded through the bottom of the gun. Empty shotgun shells ejected to the right. Depending on the particular wooden transformer plug installed in the magazine, two, three, or four shells could be stored in the tubular magazine. The magazine holds six, 2¾" 12 ga. shells, when no plug is installed, unlike most shotguns of today which hold 4 or 5 shells. With forged and machined steel parts, the ultimate reason for discontinuation in 1963 was that it was too expensive to produce at a competitive price.
Many avid gun collectors look for these guns with their large capacity to use as cut down home defense weapons against such there is absolutely no equal. Whatever your reason, I have a beautiful specimen at a very reasonable price.

A note about shipping charges. I used to ship my guns for a flat $25.00. However due to shipping increases because of the price of fuel (so they say) and the safety requirement to insure all of my guns, I have had to increase the cost to ship the guns. The insurance alone adds between $9.00 to $17.00 on each gun. I can assure my clients that I am not making any money on the shipping of my guns.
