1950 commercial Winchester Model 12 with a 1945 US Property Riot Gun barrel and mag tube. 1/3 to 1/6 the cost of the real thing. Pictures don't do it justice:












Ammo & cleaning supplies on the way. As with all my firearms, gonna learn how to field strip it and give it a good clean & oil it.

Now to write my "Chack-Chack" speech. Big Grin

Congratulations, what a fine looking boom stick.

Perfect amount of character. If she could only talk.

I think my biggest firearm regret was passing on a excellent condition commercial M12 riot not once, but twice. Run a few rounds through it for me!

If it doesn't include a empty tub of Vaseline. You're doing it wrong. Big Grin

Congrats on the shotty.

Congratulations! Nice Winchester. I’ve been looking for one myself, to go with a 1897 riot I own. I haven’t found one at a price I can live with, though.

Very nice. Finding a 'golden oldie' in good condition is happiness. Almost since I first started learning about shotguns by reading Shooting Sportsman, and Shotgum Sports I idealized a minty Model 12 in 20 ga as being both the gun guy and gentleman's shotgun. Enjoy your 12/12.
