Shotgun News

Willard presented me with a puzzle today.

His father's Winchester Model 12.  Update:  The 30" barrel and the 3" chamber with a full choke indicates that this is a "Heavy Duck" model.  Willard did say it was a goose killer, those are heavy ducks to be sure!

He was unable to get the magazine tube to move one way or another, thus was unable to break it down.

Two hours later I figured out what was binding and got it apart.  All is now well!

The Model 12 is definitely from a different era.  Iron and wood.  9 lb. loaded with six shots, 8.5 lb. with 2 and the magazine plug.

Speaking of wood!
