Hey Trap!

Just put this baby in jail, Model 12 with serial 1243570. Stamped on barrel (30") as having a "Full" choke - when I get her out of jail, will post pictures to confirm.

Thanks for all your work and contributions!

Dot, your Model 12 was made about Feb of 1949, with 62,180 made that year.

Woah, thanks for the fast response!

Didn't realize she was so old, almost as old as my Mosin. Gonna be my first shotgun. Was browsing over the standard 870's and 500's, and they just didn't have any soul compared to the M12. Thanks again!

If that's not a typo, I have to see that one!
Model 1897 serial numbers were a continuation of the Model 1893 that was discontinued in 1896 about serial number 34,050. So my educated guess is, you have a Model 1897 that was made in the later part of 1899, with 26,232 made that year.

yea, 83174, model 1897. It's a short barrel riot gun. Take down frame. Steel butt plate with no serrations.

I'll work on a pic.

My wife just inherited a bunch of old guns from her father. There was a Winchester side by side as well, but I don't have it here.

Airborne, Is the choke marked on the barrel? Barrel length? Front bead?
