This was my grandfathers gun that he gave to me when I was 12. I'm just getting into this shot gun forum stuff, but I'm finding out that the history behind these old guns I have is very interesting.I have one question,the gun I have has two barrels - mod./full and each has it's mag. All SN's match(76976),how uncommon is this.

Hello mbchustz and welcome to the forum. What you have is a "two barrel set", which was a special order from the factory. Special order features on your Model 12 can be a big plus on the value of your gun and a two barrel set is a good one to have. To determine rarity and value, let's start by finding out what gauge your Model 12 is and any other special features it may have.

It is a 12 ga. No engravings or ribs.

Ok. Next thing would be the condition of the gun as far as the finish on both wood and metal is concerned. I'll just ask some general questions. Has the gun ever been reblued, if not, what percentage of original factory blueing remains? What condition is the wood in? Does the gun function properly?
