Good afternoon members, I recently purchased a Winchester Model 12 shotgun, 12 ga. I know very little about this revered shotgun and I initially thought it was the standard model. I now believe it is a skeet gun. The stock is clearly the skeet stock, though the wood does not have a heavy pattern as some do. Barrel is marked WS-1 and is 26" in length. This gun was made in 1952. Does all this point to a Skeet Model? Condition is very good, had some surface rust (freckling) at some point but none now. Bore excellent. Stocks have no cracks. Any thought as to a value? Thanks...Dan

is the stock and forearm checkered? does it have a rib? Skeet guns usually also had SKEET marked under the serial no.

No rib, and is NOT marked SKEET with serial numbers. Stock is the checkered buttstock and forarm as is correct for the Skeet model. Also has the black plastic Winchester "cap" (not correct term) on end of pistol grip. You can see my confusion.

A true skeet gun will rarely have a plain barrel, instead of playing 20 questions if you could posts photos it would help. It could be that someone put skeet wood on a field gun.

Here is how to post photos:
