 This  is  a shot  gun  i’m selling, from  an estate  , It’s  an early 60’s  Solid Frame   12 Guage Model 12.  162684- they  were discontinued in 1964?.  It’s  way  too long   for me  to shoot, the White line pad is factory  , tried a  buttplate,  that was too small. .for a very tall man, long arms.. once  thrice fired? The Solid frames  were only a few years .as far as i have  read. 20221019_14513017598.jpgImage Enlarger20221019_14513717602.jpgImage Enlarger20221019_14521017603.jpgImage Enlarger20221019_14520617599.jpgImage Enlarger20221019_14525217600.jpgImage Enlarger20221019_14544517601.jpgImage Enlarger20221019_14545417604.jpgImage Enlarger

I think this gun is a lot older than what you think…Maybe 1917?

That is not what I see in your last picture????  If it is really 1,162,684 that would make it 1948.  Where are you getting your data?  You need the data from this site.  Go to the top of the page under Resources and when was your gun made.

You are using a bad reference source for the DOM.  S/N 1826841F was actually manufactured in October 1958.  The Model 12 Featherweight shotguns were discontinued in early 1959.

Wow – this thread really highlights how I am not a shotgun guy.  I had no idea there was a solid frame version of the M12.  I’ve owned a M25 and always assumed it was simply the solid frame version of the M12.   M12 solid frame versions is a new one on me.

Steve,

The Model 12 Featherweights were all solid frame, and were the only variant of the Model 12 manufactured as such.

thank  you Bert  ilooked  it up on  different sites   the  1957  was  almost  right.  then  but a a 6  instead of an 8-the  second site  clearly  dated  it  in the 60’s..

Amazing to ponder that every single Model 12 featherweight made was manufactured after I was born Embarassed

 Interesting ,I thought the Model 12 Featherweight was a take down model.Just the barrel came off as opposed to the standard and heavy duck ,that the magazine and barrel came off together.I thought the Model 25 was the solid frame version of the Model 12.
