Got this from my g'pa when he died. When I looked it up it is from 1951 or 1952. He had only shot it twice but I think my uncle shot it some as well. I measured the barrel & it was over 28" but not 30". What can you tell me about it, what model Model 12 is it & probable value. Thanks.

Don't know much about Model 12's but I do know that's one fine shotgun you have.

if you got gunbroker and search "Model 12 Winchester pre 64 vent rib" under completed auctions, you should get a good idea. I would guess low end would be around $3000.

I think mine is the Super Field Grade model but I could be wrong.

Don't think it's that high for field mod 12, maybe around 1200-1500? The Black Diamonds went up there in that shape, or even the Duck guns and possibly higher. The vent rib may have been a Simmons rib. Most the older Mod 12's if the had rib were solid rib guns,they had the Super X with 30" barrel and it was solid bib. That one has vent rin and skirted foreend so it maybe a trap gun! Most field grade didn't have ribs.

Looking at where the barrel and reciever meet I think I can see proof marks. If the gun did not come with rib the proof marks are in center of barrel and the rib would cover them. If you can see proof mark beside the rib it is Winchester rib. I had one with Winchester rib many years ago.
NICE GUN, I am not current on values.

Yes, there is a proof mark to the side of the rib, on the barrel, opposite the ejection side. I'm pretty dang sure this gun is exactly as he bought it. I'd think the butt pad is factory too but haven't been able to find any with a non solid pad from the factory.

pretty sure that's after market recoil pad, if so, it devalues the gun significantly

I am looking at one of my old gun books. This is what I am finding about your gun.Same general specifications as Standard Model 12. 12ga. only. 26-28-or 30- inch vent-rib bbl., standard chokes. Engine-turned bolt and carrier. Hand-checkered stock/slide handle of semi-fancy walnut. Made 1972-1975. Which is what yours appears to be. It also shows that is the correct recoil pad. MY BOOK DOES NOT SHOW VALUES.
IF i can help you more let me know.
