Remington Model 12 A? C? Other?
Just purchased a Remington .22 pump. All homework to date indicates it's a Model 12--big question is which variation. It looks identical to the 12C--crescent butt with metal butt plate, identical sights, etc--but has a round, ~22 inch barrel. The barrel length would drive me to a B, but it's stamped "22 Short-Long or Long Rifle" so I'm assuming it can't be the B. Transition model? Someone change out the barrel? Based on the stamp (WW) I think it was manufactured in 1950, but this doesn't really help either.
