Stumpted

I have had a model 12 shotgun that I ordered from Olin Corp (Winchester) in early 1958. It was supposed to be a trap gun but doesn’t have trap stamped on the barrel. It has a 30 inch barrel with a ventilated rib, full choke, and trap stock. When I put the serial in a search it comes up as a 1963 model. Serial # 1957xxx

Anybody have any idea how to search?

According to Proofhouse.com, for a Model 1912 shotgun, serial number 1957XXX was made in 1963.....total of 6698 made in that year

I bought the Model 12 as a trap gun in early 1958. I've seen the Serial # data and it doesn't make sense. I knew someone that worked for Winchester and they purchased it in 1958. Didn't realize until later that it doesn't have TRAP stamped on it.


That's why I'm here to see if anyone has an explanation as to how a #1957xxx Serial happened on a gun purchased in early 1958...

The gun is in very good condition but has had a lot of use for the first 25 years. Has set every since. Still Stumped!
