Re: Winchester mo. 12 ?

I'd go look at the shotgunworld forums. There is a specific Winchester thread with former Winchester engravers there to accurately answer that type of question. If I remember correctly, someone just asked that type of question there within the last week. So if you search a bit, it may have already been answered

The Black Diamond stocks were discontinued on Standard Traps in 1930 and became an option on special order and Pigeon Grades beginning in 1939...

The Black Diamond embellishment was discontinued on special and Pigeon Grades in 1940.

A Standard Trap BD with a VR is a scarce gun as it was only offered between 1920 and 1930, beginning around SN 240,000 and ending around SN 600,000.....
