Picked this one up in a swap at the gunshow on Sat. It was one of 2 guns that I took in a swap for one of mine along with some boot $. The Model 12 was in about 50-60% condition. Alreday touched up the blue. The buttstock is gonna need more work. Looks like it was on it's side in the trunk of a car or somethng. Lotta little scratchs. Also has some light cracks and a chip from someone putting a screw and a misfit buttplate on it at some time. Gunis a takedown and shoots all the .22s S, L.LR. Front sight is also broken half off the top blade, unless someone did it to get it to shoot lower It's solid and still tight. Bore is good. It fires and feeds. I have not fired it on paper cause I can't see the sights.

Afain, thanks for printing my pic haugrdr!!

I took this gun out today and fired a few more rounds of long rifle and shorts. The LR cases were a bit stiff to extract even after cleaning the chamber vigorously. The shorts came out easy. I had my son check for sighs of Chamber erosion from shooting shorts all the time and for firing pin damage to the chamber from dry firing. Sure enough, the sases has some drag marks from the back to the front right at the location of the firing pin location. He checked the chamber for me and said it had a slight rainsed area sticking out into the chamber. Gonna have to get that off for smoother feeding. Apparently it puts the LR cases in a bind when they extract. However the short cases are not long enough to put it in a bind and it feeds better. Pretty common thing on alot of old .22s.
