I bought a Model 12 back in the late 70s that had just come back from Simmons with a vent rib installed, re-blued and deluxe checkered forend and stock. It was a 2 3/4" gun with modified choke and I paid $200 for it. It was a great duck gun but I put it up when steel shot became mandatory. Always thought I'd bring it out of retirement one day but never have. Maybe some day.
