Today I bought a model 1912 with interchangeable barrels. It is the trap version and has a 28-inch barrel and a 30-inch barrel. All parts have the same serial number.

What is strange is the butt stock and the butt plate. Maybe someone can say more about that?

Why has someone ordered two barrels that both have the same choke (Full) but have a difference in length of only 2 inches? Does that really make sense?

 

Greetings from Germany

Is the one marked trap the 30″?  28″ is a pretty standard length for hunting.

The name “Trap” is only on the receiver

I would guess the 30″ is for trap and 28″ for hunting.

Classic old gun! Cool

The butt stock and the Jotsam Anti-Flinch recoil pad are both factory original.  The recoil pad was a special-order item.  The barrels were not marked “TRAP”  on any of the Model 1912 Trap Guns.

It was my mistake.  I thought the Trap was on one of the barrels but Steff pointed out that it was on the receiver.

This “Montecarlo” step was supposed to be a special order in 1918, wasn’t it?
