  Not sure if this has been asked before,but I could find no answer,so I will ask.Does any one know the number of Model 12 HDG’s manufactured?

  Was reading some where that in 1953 Winchester changed the slide on the Model 12 to a two piece one.This did not prove out and was changed back, quite fast.Is this true, or just some one making a good story?Smile

 Yes from what I understand ,the change was done and then rather quickly changed back.Are your guns the Heavy Duck Gun or the Standard 2 3/4 inch guns?

 Just wondering if any one knows if the magazine tubes were the same for the 12 gauge  2 3/4 inch Model 12 and the 12 gauge Heavy Duck Gun?

According to the “Model 12 Component Parts List” in the “Riffle Book”, the Duck Gun magazine tube had a different part number from the standard 12 gauge magazine tube.  RDB
