Calling all Winchester Model 12 experts

What changes did Winchester make to the Model 12 to make it a feather weight?

I don't have time to do my own research right now, I have to go to the range.

Thanks in advance for the info.

I'm not an expert, but the Model 12 Featherweight (1959-62) differed from the original Model 12 in the manner of the barrel take down. Instead of the classic Winchester 97/12 cross push-pin, the Featherweight had a lighter assembly incorporating a twist knob.
