Re: Any Win. Model 12 Fans Or Owners?
i have my grandfathers nickel steel model 1912, which is what it was called up until 1918 or so. mine was made in 1918 and is a 12 gauge 28" modified. it is battle scarred and has very little blue left. i have had it for about 37 years and it has functioned flawlessly for squirrel, turkey, rabbits and doves. over the years i have "upgraded" to mossberg 500 3" and then a 870 3.5". i keep going back to the model 12. it shoots the 2 3/4" superx #6 turkey loads tight enough for turkey out to about 30 yards.
the model 12 is a classic.
