Here's a picture of my favorite Model 12. It's a 20 gauge Pigeon with B-carved wood, WS1 choke. I've never shot a gun that goes to the target like this one! I've posted three 50 straights in skeet and the lowest score on a single round so far is a 22. It is one sweet shooter!

Like that B carved wood. What year is your Model 12?

The Riffle book says 1946. The gun has been refinished.

you could never tell by the picture. The red pad is a nice touch too.

Great looking Model 12. I can see why it is your favorite- anything that looks that good and shoots so good would have to be tops.

Yeah, I know the rib isn't original but I do believe it was a factory update. What is your opinion on the rib being a factory install? I'm just guessing.
