MODEL 12 SLIDE ACTION
- 12 (introduced 1914), 16 (introduced 1914), 20 (initial ga., mfg. 1912, 2 1/2 in. chamber mfg. until 1927), or 28 (introduced 1937) ga., 25 (20 ga. only, mfg. 1912-14), 26, 28, 30, or 32 in. standard, nickel, or stainless steel (scarce) barrel with or without rib (matted, solid, or VR), 2 9/16 (early 16 or 20 ga., until 1927, at ser. no. 464,565), 2 3/4 (became standard 1927) or 3 in. chamber, 6 shot, blue metal, various chokes, hammerless, plain pistol grip or straight walnut stock and forearm, marked Model 1912 from 1912-1919, approx. ser. no. 172,000. Mfg. 1912-1976.
Prices listed below are a guide, YOU must be able to determine the % of factory original condition your specific gun is in. 100% indicates new in the box unfired condition.
Your gun was made in 1940.
Grading 100% ....98% ....95% ....90% ....80% ....70% ....60%
16 ga. ....$750 ...$575 ....$425 ...$400 ...$325 ..$275 ...$250
Add 40%-50% for Win. solid rib.
Add 50%-60% for Win. milled VR.
Add 10% for pre-WWII mfg.
Also, 16 gauge shotshells and slugs ARE still being made today along with guns chambered in 16 gauge. Browning sells a 16 gauge BPS, and CZ has a side by side double.
While there were 15 different versions of the Model 12 made, only 4 were made in 16 gauge in 1940. If yours is the basic model listed above the prices listed would be accurate. If it is a skeet, trap, or pigeon grade prices would definitely be higher.
As JD mentioned, having an appraiser look at the gun would definitely be worth your time and money.
I'm certainly not trying to mislead anyone by copying and pasting info from the blue book for the basic model.
I apologize if anyone thought this was the case.
I have been attending gun shows, buying, selling, and trading for 30+ years myself and I'm not trying to mislead or misinform anyone when it comes to pricing on their particular gun.

My Bad I misread the first time, it was hard to find.
This is the best I could do sorry!

Was in the local gun shop the other day looking at the used shotguns and found a Winchester 1400 12 gauge for $225. The gun is in very, very good condition and doesn't appear to have been fired much. It has a fixed, mod. choke and vent rib. Anyone have any experience with this gun? Are there certain parts that are prone to breakage? The only thing I don't care for is the position of the safety (on the front of the trigger guard). Thanks in advance.
Blue book on a Winchester 1400 semi-auto ranges from $315 to $140 depending on VR or not from 100% to 60% condition respectively. There are other considerations also so all prices are +/- naturally.
