    Could anyone tell me the approx. value and manufacture date of my shotgun?
    It's a Winchester Model 12- 12 gauge, nickel steel, two interchangabe barrels (one 26", one 30"), Serial #430XXX. I think it was made in the 1930's or 1940''s.

    What chokes? A Model 12 here, field grade, in close to new condition with one barrel can go for $400 up. Trap gun, special wood, etc, adds lots.

    A family gun?

    KMB,

    The website I found shows 4300500 to be built in 1926, so your shottie is a little older than you think.

    I'm with Dave on the value.

    Thanks, yes my grandfather bought the gun used a little over 50 years ago.
