    Field grade guns were often used for trap guns. Mine included.
    That looks like 70s or 80s era Fajen wood.

    When I pulled/set trap/skeet in Nebraska (69-70) I saw (and drooled over) many model 12 trap guns like that, especially with the wood pistol grip cap and the high/wide Simmons rib.

    Farmer, I do believe you nailed it!

    I think that may be a timing mark so the barrel is oriented to the receiver.
