You are watching: Winchester model 12 16 gauge price


My uncle gave me this gun number of years ago, and also I am wanting to understand the best means to go around selling it and how to acquire the most value for it. Ns haven"t seen any threads on just how to obtain the most out of marketing a pistol that demands some TLC. Will certainly restoring the hurt that is value? Is it worth it to have it re-blued, refinish the stock, etc.? The Blue publication value at 60% is $1,250.00 and I am not sure exactly how to go around gauging the value of this gun. Any assist is really much appreciated.

Model 12s have lost much of their attraction together collectors. A "refinished" design 12,especially one v a Cutts Comp top top the barrel, can even shed value, unless you have actually the full collection of chokes because that the Cutts, and also it to be "factory installed". Inspect recent gun sales in ~ auctions for a realistic inspect of values of similar M-12s. Ns think your estimate of the worth is ~ above the high side. I couldn"t check out the serial number, however early M-12s in 16 ga. Had much shorter chambers, and didn"t update to 2 3/4" until sometime in the 1930s, so that also might likewise be an issue.
$1250.00,for that gun ain"t going come happen,it"s because that somebody,who wants that gun together a shooter,it"s anas is,shooter,gun?
$300 tops. After market Cutts on an original cylinder barrel and even the less desirable Aluminum bodied Cutts to boot. Standard Grade stock with an after sector recoil pad, and also a Skeet forearm, a genuine cobbled together gun. Probably net more for the parting that out. Someone out there requirements a smallbore Skeet forearm.
The link listed below shows friend what some have actually sold for on gun Broker. Only the ones through bids noted against them need to be thought about as sold and that is much less than presented listed. The the ones that have actually sold the high was $430 because that an all original one in around 75% condition. The low was $205 for a 60% one through a poly choke.Researcher01 together usual is spot on! several of the price for components for a 16 gauge design 12 it seems ~ to it is in asking more than one would certainly expect. For example, they are asking $90 because that 16 gauge breech bolts. Great luck and hope you continue to write-up here ~ above SGW!https://www.gunbroker.com/All/search/co ... AgeSize=48
Thanks because that the responses y"all. Ns really appreciate it. The Serial # is 7985XX. I agree that this gun is nowhere close to $1,250.00 and wonder why the blue book value for this gun is therefore high. How have the right to you phone call if the Cutts is not manufacturing facility installed? indigenous what I have read, "Factory (Winchester) barrels had no throttle designation on it, it to be left off. (no Full, Mod, or Imp/Cyl etc near where the chamber size was stamped)." Mine has Cyl but not the Imp/Cyl. I discovered this short article earlier: https://www.snucongo.org/bbs/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=82456
CYL is a throttle designation. That is significant for a cylinder choke or no choke in the barrel. I am no Winchester expert, yet it would seem to me the the barrel would have no throttle markings whatsoever, in order for it to qualified to have been factory installed. I would additionally research if Winchester only set up the steel Cutts or both steel and aluminum.There is a Winchester collector"s association that should have the ability to give you more insights and also a group here top top "I Love mine Winchester" section. More research work-related is due.
Thanks, Oyeme. Ns will watch what the "I Love mine Winchester" have to say. I will certainly probably finish up maintaining this one if the is not a "Factory Installed" Cutts. It still shoot great!
From the development of the version 1912, the accessible chokes were full Choke, modification Choke and Cylinder Bore. By 1934, Winchester included their skeet chokes WS-1 and also WS-2. Between 1934 and 1936 they included Improved Modified and also Improved Cylinder come the directory offerings. After ~ WW-II Winchester systematized their barrel length and choke offerings and also by 1950 Cylinder and also Improved Modified were no longer directory symbol offerings.In the latter 1930s when the Cutts first became easily accessible from Winchester, they had special flanged barrels because that Cutts environment --
Factory-installed barrels through Cutts Comps ~ above them had no throttle markings ~ above the barrels. Yours is one aftermarket installation.
As to the question of just how to get the most value for it: find someone who has actually a sentimental attachment to vintage 16 ga design 12"s and wants one come shoot. Those guys are out there, yet they"re gettin" type of old.

For referral I simply bought a model in 16 gauge date to 1929 v a poly choke and also vent rib ~ market. Ns paid $340.00 mine, my metal work is 95% however I suspect it may have been reblued. Because that some reason the version 12" s have nose dived the last few years....unless they to be engraved, trap, skeet or pigeon class guns.. I bought mine come shoot not collect for this reason the add ons didn"t bother me. Seems the hey day of the design 12"s getting big money are over..
