Not bad for an old 'parts gun'
Plus itll help when the zombies attack.
That's a hand cannon for sure! Have you fired it yet?
Oh yeah that there is a true defenition of a zombie gun!
Yep. Shoots great
Its heavy as hell so it doesnt kick much
What make is that?... The receiver looks a lot like "High Standard", or maybe "Sears" made by High Standard. Second guess would be Winchester.
That's a Winchester I think....
Winchester Mod 12, its a 7 digit serial. Should date it spmewhere between 1950 and 60
man, that's pretty cool!
That gun don't need a bead! Are you gona make it look a little better Josh?
His option but if it were mine i'd leave it as is. I like the "rat rod" look to it .
Even an ugly old model 12 winny is better than whats being made today. Those were some very slick actions.
A local pawn shop has one like that right now for $150. Everyone handles it, but no one has bought it yet. It's a Win. but I'm not sure it's a model 12. It's heavy enough that I figured it would tame some of the recoil.
If the zombies come, I may wish I had it.
Nice cut down job!!!
Perfect for self defense!!
Only other thing im doin to it is adding sling swivel studs so i can sling it. Other than that.. Firefighter shares my sentiments on it. I love the look of the old rusted pitted metal. And im rather proud of the way the pistiol grip came out. I worked at it until i had it matched back up to the fore-end.
I cut the stock and started out contouring the grip on the belt sander. once i had it close to the shape I wanted I worked it down starting with 60 grit til I got it to 220. then I attached it, somewhat permanently to the reciever and made a new stock screw for it, then filled the hole with epoxy and sanded it smooth. then I aged the wood with good ol fashioned elbow grease and scotchbrite after applying un-diluted BC walnut stain until it was as dark as the fore stock.
The metal i cleaned with rem oil and a scotchbrite pad. and a wire brush for the harder to reach parts.
My fav guns are the ones i find or get for free that everyone else has abandoned. I have a grand total of 8 bucks in this shotgun and about 5 hours of hard labor. And it slings buckshot just as good as a mossberg 500 ZMB pumpgun.. And much better built IMO.
No need for one.. You ever shoot a street howitzer? You dont aim it. you point it, like you would a shovel or a rake. Aiming one can get you hurt. I had a pistol grip Win 1300 defender a good while back and after trying to aim it with a '000' buck load I had 'Winchester' printed across my top lip from the medallion grip screw cap on the rear of the pistol grip.. Trust me.. hip it, and get good at point shooting. Course with a street howitzer, if you can point and hold on.. youre golden..
I agree, cept I really dont think its at all ugly. Rusted is the new awesome.
Thanks mike. It did turn out rather nice i think..
what does that shoot?
