Hi I've recently aquired a Winchester Model 12 16 gauge, it has WS1 choke. Good wood and blue. It was made in 1969, and as far as I can tell its a field grade gun. Chambered for 2 3/4s sshells. It has a recoil pad and a bright plastic front sightI was just wondering how much it was worth. Thanks.

From the Standard Catlog of Firearms, 2009:

"Model 12
This model was designed by T.C. Johnson and was the first slide-action hammerless shotgun built by Winchester. The Model 12 has enjoyed great success in its 51-year history, and over 1,900,000 were sold. This was a high quality, well-made shotgun that is still in use in the hunting and shooting fields across the country. All Model 12s were of the takedown variety.
The Model 12 was dropped from regular product line in 1963, but a special model was produced in the Custom Shop until 1979. In 1972 Winchester resurrected the Model 12 in its regular production line in 12 gauge only and ventilated rib. This reintroduced Model 12 was dropped in 1980. The prices listed are for guns made prior to 1964 or for guns with serial numbers below 1968307. This shotgun was offered in several different styles:

Standard Grade, 12, 16, 20, and 28 gauge, with plain, solid rib, or vent rib round barrels of standard lengths (26", 28", 30", 32"), plain walnut pistol-grip stock with grooved slide handle. Built from 1912 to 1963.

Standard Grade—12 gauge
Exc. V.G. Good Fair Poor
700 400 300 300 200"

Don't know why your 1969 date of manufacture doesn't match the SCofF date of 1963 as the last regular date.
