edited February 2009 in Ask the Experts
I currently have an older Winchester Model 12 I am considering selling or trading off. Serial number is 1600483 I believe it was manufactured in the early 1950's. The gun has the corn cob forearm, a 30 inch barrel with vent rib, chamber is 2 3/4 inch, I have only seen one other gun simular at Cabelas, the only difference was it was chambered for 3 inch and called a "Heavy Duck Gun". The condition of my is ok, the blueing on the receiver shows wear but no rust, wood in a good to excellent condition. The receiver was tapped for the fitting of a peep site (which I do have). Any info you can give me about this gun and its value would be appreciated.

    I've inherited a model 12-16 ga take down shotgun. Serial # 910314. 2 3/4" chamber, full choke. It is in a canvas bag with leather straps.

    What is it worth?

    condition condition condition........also...plain barrel or ribbed...checkered/or plain stock.....pad or butt plate...if pad is it a winchester marked pad....% of original blue and stock finish remaining.....

    If a field grade with a plain round barrel...they go 4 about 150/200 for a gun good 4 parts to about 450/550 for one in the mid to upper ninety percent range....LNIB is anybodys guess in an auction type setting...

    There are many factors that go into determining the real potential value of a collectible Winchester of any model. Without a complete and detailed description of the features and condition of your Model 12, it is impossible to provide you with a realistic assessment. A complete description accompanied by high resolution pictures would provide forum members with the necessary information to assist you.
