    Good evening folks...

    I am having an extremely difficult time tonight trying to put back together a Winchester Model 12.

    This is (was?) my step-father's weapon, and he is now a "mid-stage" Alzheimer's patient. I simply wanted to clean it, and I have it "about half" taken-down, and am afraid to go any further forward, until I have a clue about putting it back together.

    I will include some photos, but I am extremely discouraged. I don't know if it is now 100% my lack of strength, and lack of dexterity that is preventing me from doing this, or if it is only part of the problem - but I do know it is a part of the problem. And I am stuck......

    Thank you so very much...I have been able to move forward now, and though have much work ahead of me on this job (getting all the proper tools and supplies for one ... er, two things), I am now on track again, and on my way I believe - THANK YOU SIR!
