Our Assessment: This is a Winchester Model 12, made in 1962, towards the end of their initial production which ceased in 1963. After this, guns sporadically assembled from existing parts through about 1966 and a reintroduction of a New Style in 1972. The Model 12 is one of Winchester’s most iconic shotguns, having mostly taken the place of the 1897 after its introduction and more than two million were sold over its production run. This example is a 20 gauge with a 28″ barrel choked Full. This will make for a nice, handy hunting gun for the lucky winner and its high condition will make it a suitable addition for a collection. Please see our photos and good luck!
