    Default Win Model 1912 20 ga

    I have a Winchester Model 12, 20 ga made in 1918 that is in pristine condition except the bluing on the barrel. I found a newer barrel with nice factory bluing that is marked "model 12" rather than "model 1912". Does anyone know if the barrel threads are the same for recent Model 12's as they were before they changed from 1912...any Winchester experts out there?

    Thread diameter and pitch should be the same within the same gauge.

    Have a good understanding of setting the headspace and lock up.Seldom do these barrels just switch out like say a 870.
    Now left only to be a turd in the forrest and the circle will be complete.Use me as I have used you
