Winchester Model 12 Skeet Takedown 20-gauge w/poly-choke, Made 1939  Guns > Shotguns > Winchester Shotguns - Modern > Pump Action > Trap/Skeet
Description: The Model 12 is one of the all-time classic shotguns, along with the Winchester Model 1897, Remington Models 31 and 870, and the Ithaca Model 37. Designed by John M. Browning, it used, for the time, a rather unique take down system wherein both the barrel and the magazine tube were attached to the same forward assembly and attached to the receiver by a rotating thread system. To remove the barrel, a pin at the end of the magazine tube was pushed to one side, and then the tube was rotated until the its threads no longer interlocked with the receiver threads, at which point, the magazine tube was pulled forward. With the forearm pulled all the way to the forward position, the entire assembly was rotated until the barrel threads no longer interlocked with a second set of receiver threads. The entire assembly could then be removed. This made it possible for a hunter or other sport shooter to switch the Model 12 to another barrel in a relatively short period of time (less than a minute). Winchester ceased production of the Model 12 in 1963, the year Winchester’s management chose to make significant changes to their firearms. This began the pre-64 vs. post-64 collectors market. Fortunately, the Model 12 was never put through the indignity of being “simplified” for mass production. The Model 12 here has a poly choke. This is more useful than the Cutts Compensator as altering the choke does not require removal and replacing of parts – it simply requires rotating the device until the desired bore constriction is reached. The front bead was replaced by a large Ithaca fiber optic for quick sight acquisition. The stock retains its original butt plate instead of having been cut short and a buttpad installed. The finish on this shotgun is quite beautiful. The bluing is just something you won’t see coming out of the factories these days. The finish on the wood is excellent. There are a few minor signs of wear, but this is understandable given the shotgun’s age. The serial number dates this Model 12 to the year of 1939, making this shotgun 79 years old! Undoubtedly, it works just as well as it did when it when it left the factory.
