Model 12 Shotguns

1914 winchester model 12 value by serial number

Will I be hurting the value restoring it? All model 12s of this era had Nickel Steel barrels, except the ones with Stainless Steel barrels. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Over the years I've seen a handful of 16ga. This is a base model from 1914. Theres really not alot that goes wrong with the Model 12 Wincehster. The best materials went into the Model 12. Lowgun, I had a front assembly for an early 20 and sold it.

1914 winchester model 12 value by serial number

Anyone have any experience with this gun? Probably because of its construction of machined steel and fitting. And special thanks to Torquem for referring me to someone who knows more about these Model 12s than Winchester does. It had sile wood, original barrel replaced with aftermarket, and a short magazine. Getting out the door was interesting. I'm not interested in selling, so much as what values are for insurance both at home and particularly for shipping. I'm about to ship the following. I think I replaced a spring or two maybe 10 years ago but thats it.

Vintage Winchester Model 12

1914 winchester model 12 value by serial number

I searched for another with a good 1910 patent barrel to switch. Hard to put a value on a gun we cant see. Remington Model 1100 Skeet auto - purchased used approx 1962 in beautiful condition. My 20 does not have alignment marks on the magazine or receiver extension. I have a shank and could change it. I suspect you mean this pic------- It is a 20ga Black Diamond, also made in 1914 and all original and has a second bbl with the same ser though I believe it was added at the factory later. A couple of years ago, I found one at an auction.

Winchester Mod 1912 12 ga

1914 winchester model 12 value by serial number

I have found one who I am checking out with some shooters before I trust him with a collectable. A week ago I came across a sweet 20 ga Model 12. The barrels were nickel steel. Especially if you plan on passing it down through the family. I know about original condition, and the general check list of what to look for. My question is would it really hurt the value to put an era correct english stock and fore end on this gun.

I beleive the wood on it is oil soaked, but It may just dark. My personal preferance is not to refinish, unless so much of the origional finish is gone that damage to the metal would occur without it. Theres a fine line on restoring or just refinishing,Model 12 winchesters had a rust blued finish during that era this would be the correct finish. I would suggest hopping over to shotgunworld. That and its 6-shot capacity made it effective for close-combat.

Winchester Model 1912, Nickel Steel, Mfg July, 1916, Custom 12 GA 14460542

1914 winchester model 12 value by serial number

Seeking info on the fine points of the venerable Winchester Model 12. The guns were built by skilled craftsmen of milled steel and walnut. Spoke to the owner who brought it to last weekend's gun show and stuck it under the table until I could get there. The only down side is the recoil pad that was recently installed or replaced. I do not have possession yet but it is in the mail.

Only way it could have been better is if Clyde Barrow would have driven by in a Model A. It makes for a better clays or bird gun.

Winchester Mod 1912 12 ga

1914 winchester model 12 value by serial number

I was always tempted to disable it and hang it over the fire-place. Welcome to Field and Streams's Answers section. Its value had been ruined when I got it. Someone could outbid you in the final seconds of the auction if your Max Bid isn't high enough. I'm still looking for a 16ga model 97 Black Diamond to go with the 12ga gun. Early solid rib 20ga 1912s are a joy to shoot.

16 gauge model 1400 winchester

1914 winchester model 12 value by serial number

I have a 1935 Model 12 12 gauge and a 1920 Model 12 in 16 gauge that belonged to my Grandfather. I have some other 20s, but this one seemed to hard to pass up. I really think the 20ga M12 is not all that common. Anyway, thanks again for the groupthink opinions, it helped a lot. I have sent my old shooter grade black diamond trap for restoration. I am restoring it to near original appearance.

Places that do this and do a nice job are : John Kay of Winchester Restorations Doug Turnbull of Turnbull Restorations Charles Danner of Expert Rust Bluing I've had or seen work from all the above and they will do a beautiful job. I use it every dove season and love the 16 gauge for upland game. I think you mean a Model 12 Introduced in 1914? I don't think I've ever been to a gunshow where they weren't there in large numbers and they are still found coming out of closets and estates all the time. Like the earlier Model 1897, it too fired each time the action closed with the trigger depressed. There is only factory Serial Number Application Data available for this model from the in Cody, Wyoming, from serial number 1 thru 1970885.
