 Just wondering if there is any interest in the Winchester Model 12 Y series guns?Was looking at a great condition Model 12 Y series trap gun recently and wondering if there is any interest in them and what they might be going for these days?

Not much collector interest to my knowledge but I’m a trap shooter and bring mine out when I’m feeling nostalgic. It’s a beautiful gun and shoots quite well. I probably paid a bit too much for it @ around $1100 but it’s in very good condition with beautiful wood.

I don’t shoot my Model 12 Y Trap gun very often but I love the way that full choke powders clay targets. I did have to replace the recoil pad but Brownell’s has one that looks like the original red rubber Winchester pad. I know a very good trap shooter that shot one for years and probably still takes it to shoots as a backup.

Did you buy it?

 No, did not buy the gun .Other firearms higher on my want list.:)Still a nice gun and worth some thought and discussion on.Believe I would like a field version Model 12 Y series gun more than the trap gun.

I own two Y series guns, skeet and trap. Beautiful wood on both of them. I mostly shoot skeet and have many straights with that one. Bought the trap gun new in box years ago at the OGCA show in Cleveland for $800. Skeet gun came used but 99.9 % from another show for $750. I know the pre '64 guns bring more money, but the Y's I have both shoot and look great!
