    Model 12s were well built,but I seriously doubt yours has had "hundreds of thousands " of rounds shot through it. Think about it.

    70 yrs old or so, Rem Mod 11

    paid $150 for it in 1999 after I lost my 870 along with a good friend in a house fire. It’s tight as a frogs *** and will absolutely wreck fowl with 2 3/4” no.4 steel

    An ST "Spara Tutto", which translates to "Shoots All" types of ammunition (from heavy to light loads).

    390 ST's are great reliable guns!

    Browning Cynergy with a freehand Cericoate job. Hunted it in the camo dip until the skeeter spray made that stuff start to peal.

    The 1995 SBE it replaced five years ago is now a dedicated goose gun.

    The Cynergy is hell to look at if you a stuck on traditional lines. I ain't found a gun that shoots ducks better, for me. Choked full/full with #3 BOSS it's bad medicine. Open it up with I/c and some #5s. It will wreck a flock of teal.

    Was at Cabela's today looking at a Browning Maxus
    Wife asked if I wanted it.
    "NO" I want the Maxus 2.
    She said "OK'

    Really?

    Tell wife to get the new A5. I shot one up until I got the A400 two years ago. Sweet gun. Would buy new A5 if they made it in 28 gauge immediately. If I did not love the 28 gauge I would go with a 20 gauge hump back recoil gun. I had one when I was a teenager and once out of college I thought I had to have a 12 gauge.

    She meant it.
    The Browning Maxus II is on the way. I got it in the 'Tactical Finish'.
    The one I originally wanted was too much like the Beretta A400 I now have.

    I have a Model 12 my Grandpa bought during the Depression for $10 cash and a wagonload of corn. It is a 16 gauge with a 26inch nickel steel full choke barrel. Built in 1927. First time I shot at a duck, I killed two Grey Ducks on the fly with the first shot. Was my father's gun until he returned from WW2(bought a Browning Auto 5). Got put up and never shot again until it was passed to me in 1965.
