I am putting my 1962 Model 12 into my gunsmith for a total restore and reblue. Great duck gun, 30 inch, factory rib and double bead, full choke, English stock with smooth forestock. Anyone else have a Model 12?

Yup, Iíve got a M-12 Riot Gun (1958 vintage) similar to the one that was issued to me when I graduated from the Academy (1979). Itís still beautiful blued steel and walnut. They will never make them like this again (and the dept. pulled them out of service in 1999).

I got mine from my day in the early '70s. It hides in the safe. i don't want to ruin the barrel with steel shot. I bought a mossberg o/u for ducks and geese. also picked up a stoeger 20 for upland game as we are now a lead free state.

I remember setting trap on the trap range at our gun club I was 14 and we sat in a cement bunker and would put the claybirds on the machine arm after it threw the claybird and Almost every one of the men shot a model 12 trap gun with 30 in full choke barrels. THOSE WERE THE GOOD OLD DAY,s

I still have the Model 12 Guard and Riot gun which was issued to me and which I was gifted when I retired. Some years ago I sent it back to Winchester to have an extra 26-inch Modified choke plain barrel and mag tube assembly fitted, so I can swap barrels.

I also have a 20-ga. 26-inch modified plain barrel field gun with 2-3/4" chamber which was my father's and which I learned to shoot squirrel, pheasant and turkeys with as a kid. It also shoots slugs pretty well and has killed a few deer, though not a primary deer gun, as this is rifle country.

While I've used Remington 870s, 1100s, Ithaca 37s, Remington 11s, I no longer own any and stick to the family model 12s, which do all we ask, as I don't hunt waterfowl anymore and don't need a gun to shoot 3-inch magnums or steel shot.

I can remember fantastic shots with the model 12, using 3" #2 on geese. 2 3/4" #6 took duck and pheasant. I also have the old man's model 97. I can shake it and it rattles. Both gun bring back memories, just not pleasant. I usually hunted alone, the old man was rather rude and aggressive if one missed a bird. the model 12 with lead shot was a killer.

I have a model 12 in 16gauge from 1926, was a few thousand off in the serial number to when they switched over to the longer 16guage shells. It was given to me by an old lady who said it had not moved from it's resting place in a closet for over 50yrs. It was a rusty mess, but cleaned up to be a pretty good field gun.

Maybe it's just me, but that thing sure is a beauty and you can practically see the quality.

I have a couple of Mossberg 500's and they in no way look that nice. They do the job fine, but I think I need to consider getting one of those.

I also have another barrel and fore-end assembly which is a 26-inch modified plain barrel with bead sight. These guns are easy take-down and extra parts are easy to find if you know where to look.
