WWII Blued Winchester Model 12 Trench Gun in Fine Condition. The Right Side of the Receiver, Under the Ejection Port, is Stamped: "U.S." Over the Ordnance Department's: "Flaming Bomb" The "Flaming Bomb" is Also Stamped on the Rear, Top of the Barrel, Just Ahead of the Winchester Proofmark. The Correct 20 5/8" Barrel is Stamped: "CYL" (Cylinder). The Barrel is Stamped: "43" (Year of Manufacture) On Its Underside, Breech End. "Mirror" Barrel Bore. The Bayonet Lug & Handguard Assembly has Four Rows Of 19 Large Cooling Holes and is in Excellent Condition. While It has About All of Its Blued Finish, I Suspect that It has had Some Bluing Added (Because of the Existence of Some Dings on the Bottom, Front of the Receiver and the Rear, Bottom, of the Receiver Extension; and Pitting On the Rear of the Magazine Tube). Correct Two-Hole Magazine Tube. Action/Mechancially is "As New" and has been Completely "Checked-Out" and "Test- Fired" by My Very Competent Model 12 Gunsmith (He Said: "While It is Not the Finest Model 12 Trench Gun that I have Seen, It Functions Very Well."). While Its Wood Set is Certainly Well Above Average for a Model 12 Trench Gun, It does have Quite a Few Handling Marks and Dings from Usage. It has About All of Its Wood Finish, but It is Likely had Some Wood Finish Added (Because the Wood Finish is Just Too Good for the Usage the Trench Gun has Experienced). However; there are No Cracks in the Butt Stock. On the Left Side of the Butt Stock, Near the Center, there is a Nice Inspector's Boxed: "G.H.D." Over the Ordnance Department's: "Wheel With Crossed Cannons" Cartouche. The Butt Stock has an "As New" Correct Inletted Blued Sling Swivel and Screws."As New" (Likely Replaced) Correct Black Hard Rubber Butt Plate and Butt Plate Screws. Its Serial Number is 9680XX.
