View Full Version : 16 gauge?

I forgot to mention that I couldn't find a serial # anywhere on the weapon. on the bottom of the reciever just ahead of the loading gate the finish has been sanded smooth,which is where I think the serial # was. is this correct? When were the model 12's made? thanks

The model 12's were mfg'd from 1912-1976.
There is a possibility that your are correct on the Sr# placement. I had thought that possibly there may not be a serial number if mfg'd prior to 1969. However, according to my records Winchester #'d all the model 12's.
