View Full Version : Winchester Model 12 help needed

January 19, 2002, 05:20 PM
I have a 16 gauge winchester model 12, #7999xx. I can not figure out how to disassemble the magazine or remove the bolt from the receiver. Does anyone have disassembly instructions? Does anyone know the date of manufacture? Thanks.

Gopep, your winchester Model 12 was made in 1939. Above is an exploded view of a Model 12. Maybe Harley has more information. Hope this helps!

I have sent, by separate email, the complete disassem w/photos for the win 12. They are sent by AOL so you may have to unzip them. There are 12 pages. Kindly advise, if you are unable to down load I will send by another browser.

I got the pictures and will attempt it tomorrow. Thank you for your help again.

Harley, I have a Win model 12 in a 12 ga that was given to me by my Grandfather many years ago. He hunted quite a bit. I haven't fired it in over 20 years.

If you still have the disassembly instructions handy, I sure would like a copy, too!


BTW, I'm a new member here. Learned of this forum over at the 1911Forum. This one looks like a great one, too.
