I have a Winchester model 1912 12 gauge field grade shotgun with the barrel marked “CHP”. Does anyone know if the California Highway Patrol used these circa WWII era?
Serial number indicates produced prior to 1920.

Yes, they had a number of surplus M12’s marked. The CHP was formed in 1926, and incorporated shotguns almost immediately.
