I’d love to have a Model 12. What a great rifle.
It finally came in, and I got to take it out this morning. I used 400+ fps, CB, short ammo, and firing from the 50 foot line,standing, off hand, I managed a 6 inch group (mostly 4). I think that I’m more accurate, off hand, than with my longer Winchester. I like the CB ammo, which costs a few cents more per round than the longs. It is quiet, still has the power to blow through 1/2 plywood at 50 ft, and slow enough that I can see and then hear the impact on the target. It is so quiet that I don’t use ear protection, and in a fraction of a second, I hear the report, see the impact, and then hear the impact. I use a splatter target that turns black around the bullet impact site, so it is easy to see where I am hitting from the firing line.
