What is the approximate value of a model 12 made in 1927 12 Gauge solid rib straight grip stock in fancy figured walnut forend also hand checkering bluing worn on receiver?
You have an interesting piece. The model 12 is considered the finest pump ever made. The 12 ga. is less desirable then say, the .410, but the solid rib is rare. And, anytime you have upgraded wood and checkering (factory?), it adds considerably to the value. Condition is almost everything in a collectable such as yours--I can't quote you a price. But if you were interested in selling-and-getting the most money for your gun, you should look into selling on-line. Gunbroker.com is a great site for listing, and you should be able to get a fair price for your Winchester.
