I’ve got a 1929 model 12 

firstly there’s no indication of chamber length, is it possible it could only be 2 1/2? Also I’m stripping it down, how is the mag tube removed from pump handle? I’m assuming the spa er nut has to be removed before the tube will slide out?

thanks in advance

Why do you believe that it is a 1929 production Model 12? Which gauge is it?

12 Gauge Model 12s were never chambered for anything less than 2-¾" shells.  If the serial number is < 594590, it was manufactured before 1929.

The information on the WACA website (here) is the accurate source, as it was derived directly from the factory records.  The information you can or will find on other websites is erroneous.  If you have doubts about what I am telling you, contact the CFM research office and purchase a factory letter.
