Any opinions on value for this one below? Serial # 1515867(1953). They want $1300 U.S firm. A friend asked me but shotguns aren’t my wheelhouse.

I just paid a grand for a 95% (or better)1960 Model 12 in 20ga w/ a 28” Modified barrel. Quite honestly I think I may have paid a little bit too much. I’d pass.

Rick,

Post some better (close-up) pictures of it… to include the factory roll stamped markings on the barrel.

Just checked the Red Book, I stand corrected. Apparently I stole another one at the Orphanage. Oops.

Rick,

While the $1,300 USD price tag is not a bargain, it is also not unreasonable, especially to a collector looking for a nice condition late production Model 12  20-ga shotgun.

Can’t tell if it’s a lighting issue but there appears to be a blemish in the finish in the pistol grip area.

I’m not sure Mike. Those were the only photos he sent me but I think he would’ve mentioned it. I haven’t heard from him today.

Are you expanding into shotgun collecting now?  Cross-addiction is the logical progression of addiction.  Believe me, I know Embarassed

Haha no it’s for a friend Steve. He asked my thoughts on price but I’m not experienced in shotguns enough from a collector standpoint to give him an opinion.

Be careful, Rick. You pick that little 20 and swing it around a bit you may look at it a bit differently. It’s pretty lively. I’m not a shotgun collector either. I can quit any time I want to. 
All kidding aside if this gun doesn’t feel right to your friend he can wait for a better one. There seems to be more than a few moving around now and more than a few are probably as nice as this one. Winchester made nearly 2 million M12’s, he’ll find one he likes if he keeps his eyes open. I stumbled upon mine several days ago and an even nicer 12ga back in June. Can’t promise he’ll be able to steal one like I did but I’m proof even a blind hog can find an acorn now and then.
