my '48 slide release button is sticking, and releases only when dry fired. Have re & re the assembly, looked OK but still sticking. Anyone know what may be causing this, and or a solution?

This is a guess, but if the gun works fine when dry fired and sticks when fired the gun has a rough chamber that prevents extraction.

Polish and clean the chamber with gusto.

The second cause might be some malfunction of the slide release mechanism under the forend. Normally it must be shoved a little forward to unlock the slide. Disassemble the forend all the way and inspect the little coil spring under the forend.

The ultimate truth is that a M12s reputation for reliability is greatly exaggerated.

Shoot one enough and they all give trouble.

The original recoil pad and wood refinish job was a huge disappointment; that fellow was not a woodsmith.

I finally had it redone by a professional, Andrew McFarlane of ADM Gunworks, in the proper vintage oil finish. I would have liked to keep the original bakelite butt-plate, by it was as slippery as a greased pig. This Pachmayr Decelerator is the perfect mix of staying where it is put, while not catching on my shirt, and absorbing recoil, which is not a factor with this gun as it is fairly heavy, ~ 8 lbs of Nickel Steel and walnut, and fits me well.


Nice Mod 12. I came across a source for butt plates while I was restoring my late father's 1956 Browning A5 last year >>> http://www.homesteadparts.com/shopcart/48/Buttplates.htm

BTW, I have a like new Mod 12 12g/3in/FC/30in bbl that appeared to have had little use when I bought it. http://imgur.com/a/1swPQ

My first post to this site and all I wanted to say was thanks for this.

I rescued my Grandfathers M12 from a life of neglect and constant dry-fire in a family members home. It had been hiding under a bed, surrounded by dust, cat dander and wrapping paper, taken out only when the youngster in the house wanted to play Army with it.

I thought it had been sold or lost long ago. The deer rifle (Sporterized Eddystone Model 1918) was there too. That was also rescued but will require much more TLC.

Its life has improved drastically, thanks its rescue, relocation and this excellent step by step guide.

Again, thank you.

Take care

Photobucket, the host of the pics, has changed their policy. It's too bad, but you won't be able to see these pics anymore unless nody goes in and moves the pics to another site and rebuilds the entire thread. He may not chose to do that as it's a lot of work.

Yeah, if I can find the time I'll reshoot them all. Gun's at the smith now anyway for a refinish and a Kick-Eez, so it will be much purdier. I could probably rewrite the thread even simpler. Probably just ditch the original and start from scratch, but with same format, captioned pics vice lots of descriptions.

I've only glanced at PB, but it appears my pics are still there; I just can't 3P host them. Not sure if they are held hostage or if I can get them back on my computer? Guess I'll have to get down to it.

Ras, any recommendations for a replacement host?

Yes you can download them by folder. Just be patient... and you'll need to turn your ad blocker off. The ads there are worse than a liberal news site.

The hard part is tying the cryptic PhotoBucket link in a SGW post back to a given picture... I can't believe they destroyed this thread.

Thanks for the head up on the ad blocker/folder download. I was beginning to lose it.

Anybody save this topic and by chance able to email it to me?

I took the write-up before it disappeared and turned it into a pdf document and then printed it. I had it punched for a spiral binder. That write-up along with the Winchester illustrated guide are my two technical references for the M12!

There's a simple upload site for sharing, go to 'cube upload'...it's great.

I did a full dis- and re-assembly on a new to me 1929 16 ga. I can't seem to get the slide bar behind the bolt when putting on the barrel unless I install the barrel and magazine tube before I put the trigger group in last...

She's a lot cleaner now that who knows how old dried grease has been removed. Shot a round of five stand yesterday admirable but after reassembly, something doesn't feel right in the stroke.

Nody,
Could you make the pics available again?

I just purchased a 1960's build Model 12 Trap.
I am surprised at how the info out there is pretty sketchy.
Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

Oops!
Just noticed the conversation above about re-creating the info.
i'll be watching for it.

There is a PhotoBucket repair extension for Google Chrome and FireFox I think, do a search at your app store.

At long last the new pics are up. Sorry it took so long. I went through several attempts with google and yahoo photo hosting, and trying to edit in pics with the captions... all quite an exercise in frustration, in the precious little free time I usually have. Finally, home with a cold from work two days, I found imgbb (dirt simple, hopefully it will last,) and just redid the whole OP from scratch.

Again, this is a simple cleaning and maintenance guide, not a gunsmithing guide. This is for “Everyman.”

Thanks so much for adding back the pics. It is a great service to those who need them!

First post!

My thanks to all who have contributed to this thread. Today I wanted to clean up my dad’s old M12, circa 1924, and found this thread to aid me in that process.

I have done a quick cleaning, but have encountered some confusion during reassembly.

On the underside of the mag and receiver are opposing arrows, and I can’t seem to figure out the ‘key’ in getting them aligned.

Can anyone shed light on this topic or direct me to another resource?
