    Was pulling some stuff out of the safe and figured I’d snap a photo of my Winchester Model 12 - 16 gauge. Got it for my 14th birthday a few years back. Looked up serial number and it appears to be a 1925 Year model. She’s in need of a blueing soon if anyone has any recommendations. I think it was “restored” at some point. Someone extended the stock and did a blue job to it but honestly the bluing is half ass. Currently have no ammo for it either. Hard to find up in my neck of the woods. Not for sale. Ever. Sorry. Can’t put a price on gifts from parents. This will end up being passed down to my son eventually.

    Hang in there. The 16's will be back. I saw several boxes at Cabellas last time I was there.

    I wouldn’t change a thing. Choot it and enjoy it. If you ‘restore’ it, The story and it’s history changes once again.

    some nice blue would be nice since the previous bluing isn’t very good. If it was still original from when it was made then I wouldn’t bother doing anything to it.

    VERY COOL! I have a M12 in 12 ga that is from 1925.

    IF you find someone who can do a restore, please post. Thanks!

    They don't have it up the highway in Liberal? Back when I was working up there I stayed in Liberal. The WalMart there had every shotgun shell on the planet before dove season opened up. Pallets and pallets of....JUST FREAKING EVERYTHING. If you needed a shotshell and they didn't have it, you didn't need it. Lead, steel, bismuth, buck, slugs all of it in every gauge. It's been a few years tho...
