I was hoping someone could help me date and provide a rough private party value of a Winchester Model 12 - s/n: 1669830. 12 Gauge - 90%.

Thanks.

1958. For a standard model I'd say around 500.

Thank you Hawg.

Does anyone know if it is okay to shoot steel shot through it?

I wouldn't use steel shot in it at all but if it's a full choke steel shot would most likely be a disaster. A steel shot column doesn't compress like lead does.

Either you did, or there's an echo in here! :confused:

The value of a 90% Winchester Model 12 Field Grade is $550, according to Blue Book of Gun Values, 28th ed.
