Wish my experience with the Mod 12 was equivalent, though I did find one more on Thursday. It was a 20ga, not much finsih left and pretty loose with a price of $399. Still looking at two in pretty good shape at the one shop but $650 and the huge funky external chokes just seems out of line with what I am hearing from most of you guys? They also have a standard pidgin grade model that looks pretty nice BUT $2000 is out of my league! The search will continue with the one big hope, that I can find one or two before Wild Bunch catches on here. So far only couple or so are shooting WB, as a category, in with the regular monthly cowboy match but I hope to see that change soon.
PS: While waiting to find one, where would one look for any information on the Model 12, intrruction manual, disassembly/assembly and or operation?
