Pre 1914 16 ga. Model 12

I recently purchased a 16 ga. Model 12. The serial number is 3xx. Based on some looking I think that places the gun to 1912. However, I have read the 16 was not introduced until 1914. Just trying to reconcile. Any help would be appreciated.

Andrew,

S/N 300 was manufactured in late August 1912 (the first Model 1912 was manufactured August 6th, 1912). The 16-ga was actually introduced early in the year 1913.

Is the barrel marked “MOD. 1912” or “MODEL 12”?
