    The barrel is marked 2 3/4 and full choke. I did read up on it also and found the same info mongo stated.

    That thing has a fantastic looking stock and forend. Ok I am going to show some ignorance. Who is the manufacturer? Remington??

    That's a Winchester. I have a model 12 and it's a sweet shooting shotgun. Once you shoot one of those, modern shotguns seem seriously lacking in character.
    Warning! Driver carries MORE than $20 in ammunition.

    I can't help myself, I'm a shotgun guy. But, as crazy as it may sound I can't recall ever shooting a Winchester.

    The furniture is surprisingly in good shape which makes me wonder if it has been replaced at some point. At least the butt stock. I could see the forend being original.

    They quit making the model 12's in the early 60's. I think. Some say they were the best pump action ever made. I can't say that because I haven't shot it yet. My father-in-law had a bunch of model 12's and he loved shooting them. Sadly he lost them all in a house fire last October.

    This one might end up with him. I was looking for a 12 gauge for him when I found this one. If he likes it, I'll let him have it.

    My Model 12 trench gun is probably my favorite of everything that I own. These shotguns just look right, not to mention, slam fire capability....

    Sweet shotgun. Obviously has a ton of character; petina is great. Love the old pump wood furniture.

    I have a model 12 in 12 g, I have thought about getting a 16 and a 20. They can be pretty salty any more in good shape. I have a 12 and 16 in the Mod 97. The 16 g was my Dad's.

    Hi. My name is Mongo, and I am a model 12 junkie.

    There is not a thing wrong with the 16. As people get older they find it will do everything the 12 will but "more comfortably".

    Your FIL is a blessed man to have so thoughtful a SIL.

    I know of no squirrel, rabbit or bird alive today that can tell the story, "they would have had me if it wasn't for the fact they had a 16ga..."
    I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous...
