I am selling my model 12 barrel assembly. It is a 12 gauge 26 inch cylinder choke barrel. Overall The bluing is still very good I'd say 90-95%. 

The serial number on it is L04xxxx

If you have any questions please ask or make an offer.

Thanks

We prefer that you provide a complete serial number. That stated, the Model 12 never used an "L" prefix on the serial numbers.

Thank you Bert, I didn't realize i needed to post the whole serial number.

The whole number does have an L in front of it so I do not know what it is then. Perhaps you could shed some light on what I have then?

The serial number on the barrel is L041665. I can't seem to figure out how to attache pictures.

Hmmm...  The serial number on the barrel assembly dates it as being manufactured in August/September 1944.  It should be stamped with a 2-digit year number on the bottom of the barrel near the take down extension.

Very early in the Model 1912 production, the early 6-digit serial numbers had what appeared to be an "L" leading digit, but it was simply a poor cut rendition of the "1" digit (my theory was a lazy die maker).  The same die(s) were previously used on the Model 1892, 1894, and 1897 receivers.  The attached pictures show a few Model 1897 shotguns with the "L" looking numeral "1" digit. It is entirely possible that some of the late WW II production Model 12 shotguns also used a poorly made serial number digit die... I simply have not seen very many of them in the early 1-million serial number range.

Oh! Then it must be a "1" that looks like an "L" that would make sense. Here is a photo of the "L" in question. Do you think it is what you said with the poor die cut?
