From a West Tennessee collection comes this attractive specimen of Winchester’s Heavy Duck series variant of the legendary model of 1912. Manufacturer was Winchester Olin of New Haven, CT. From its 1325000 range serial number, it was manufactured in late 1952, probably December. Barrel marking is Made in New Haven Conn. U.S. of America – Winchester Model 12 – 12 ga – 3 in Cham / Winchester Proof Steel / For Super Speed & Super-X Full. Note the Illinois Tollway Cartouche on the right side of its buttstock. Construction is entirely steel metal with American Walnut stock and forend, and factory polymer butt plate. Chambering is for 12 gauge, 2 3/4 inch and 3 inch shells. This shotgun was NOT designed for steel shot. Barrel is 30 inches, .695 muzzle full choke, comparable to most Improved Modifieds. Sight system is a solid serrated top rib that sits .106 above the barrel at the magazine face. Front sight is brass bead, with serrated recessed receiver top rear sight. Safety is standard forward positioned in the trigger group, checkered serration .500 wide. Trigger is .270 smooth faced, pulls single stage at 5 7/8 pounds with minimal felt creep and overtravel. Slide action is very smooth. Weight empty is 8 pounds 1 ounce, centered at the back of the chamber. Overall length is 49 3/8 inches. Stock drop is 1 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches, with a full 1 inch right hand cast. Length of pull is the original 14 inches. Finish is professional reblue and refinish. Metal letters show only faint buffing, nearly full strength throughout as the photos show. Forend has fitting or recoil mars on its edge only, next to the forward forend iron plate. Otherwise there are no cracks whatsoever, only occasional mars and streaks. We rate this shotgun as Very Good Refinish, close to Excellent, 85 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright and clean. We believe that this shotgun was issued to the Illinois State Police at some point, probably for varmint control purposes, at likely served with ISP District 15 or its departmental ancestors.
