I'd like to report a case of elder abuse... Hello?... Hello?

Alfred, itís a 1915 vintage field grade, but with a raised matted rib, 14 groove pump grip. Whatís unusual is itís original 26Ē full choked barrel. Itís in remarkable condition. 16ga. 2 1/2 chamber.
My excitement is tempered by a pathetic lack of interest in the gunshop chosen by the auction house; Safeshoot, in Kingston NY. The owner basically said heíll ship it when he feels like it.

Right, Mills. Part of me says call the auctioneer and ask that he refund my payment. Part of me saysíyou didnít need it before you saw it, so just be patient. I hate these dickheaded shop owners who really shouldnít be in the business.

I do think at the very least you should complain to the auction house; pretty crappy if you ask me.

So, Edgar, is the 16 gauge Model 12 a "round top" or is it a bit late for this feature? I took my 12 gauge round top, 30" modified gun, 70,000 range, to our annual swap meet and went a full day without anyone even looking at it.

It's a Model 1912, but not 'Round Top' receiver. They tell me today that it will go out tomorrow, so I'll know more by the weekend.
Do you have a Black Diamond 16ga. Model 97?

I have a 55,xxx 16 ga Model 1912, but it too is the recessed matted receiver.

No 16 gauge Model 97 Black Diamond in my house. However, I would buy one if it came available.
