Best Answer

The twelvette is a double automatic, lightweight version with aluminum receiver unlike the standard double automatic which has a steel receiver. The twelvette came in black with gold trim with gold engraving in 1955-1971. From 1956 to 1961 some receivers were gray, brown or green anodized, and had silver engraving. All twelvettes seem to have gold triggers also. I have a 1958 double automatic with black receiver and gold trim plus a gold trigger. On the side of the receiver the word twentyweight is engraved on it and the gun weighs 6 lbs. instead of 6.5 - 7 lbs which is stated for the twelvette's weight. I haven't been able to find any information on it's history or value. If anyone has any information on it I'd appreciate hearing from you. I'd also like to know where I could see an exploded view of the assembly???
