i just traded for a prewar heavy duck made in 1939, i am a fan of the model 12 but not an expert on them. my question is on a pretty nice example is there any price difference between pre and post war ? i looked quite a bit online and there are several post war guns for sale, but i havent been able to find a prewar example. any help appreciated. { i intend to sell the gun, dang it`s heavy !}

Maybe some. All pre war guns seem to bring a bit of a premium. If it has a rib, it is worth more and it it has a 32 inch barrel even more. Condition is all important to collectors.

I'd say a 15/20% premium for a pre war gun.....
