Remington Model 12

We have inherited a Model 12 with the round barrel. The barrel is rough and it is missing the breech block. My 9 year old would like to refurbish it and he does a fairly good job on them when he does. My question is, is it worth getting a replacement block assembly for it?

His last before and after:

The Model 12 was a very popular plinker and they are very common but I have no idea how much a bolt would cost. I'd suggest Jack First distributors or Numrich as places to try

flipper35,

ImVho, IF the barrel is BADLY pitted or "shot-out" it's a wall-hanger & NOT worth repairing.
(As Charlie said, the Model 12 is common & often found for sale at pawn shops & even flea markets.)

yours, sw

Bob's Gun Parts has Remington Model 12 parts, and suggests calling for whatr they don't have on the site....

Gun Parts Corp have several different Model 12 bolts. Apparently there were design changes over the years of production.....

flipper35,

Fwiw, as it's a "family heirloom", I'd hang it up & admire it as is.

As I've said elsewhere, I still have the 12-gauge Long-Tom single barrel that my grandfather gave me so that I could "hunt with the men" at 12YO. = I felt VERY GROWN UP that day for sure. - It probably wouldn't sell for over 20 bucks cash but to me it's PRICELESS.
(That was 60 years ago I still remember my Mother's comment, "Daddy, surely you didn't give that CHILD a real gun." --- My grandfather said, "It'll be fine" & as he was the family patriarch, that was ALL that was ever said about MY shotgun.)

just my OPINION, sw

I think I'd scour local pawn shops and gun shows for a Model 12 in the same serial number range. You might find one in bad cosmetic shape but decent working order that you could cannibalize as necessary for the parts you need.

A few years ago I found a Remington 511 Scoremaster in a small local gunshop for under a hundred bucks. I recognized that beehive bolt from across the room. My Dad used to take us shooting with a 511 when we were kids, and I don't know what ever happened to it...one of my brothers probably has it. I didn't buy it, but now I kind of wish I had. Heck, the original mag alone is probably worth thirty bucks in today's market.

The bore is good, the outside is rough. The wood is pretty decent.

I will check a couple links and see. Numrich was out of stock when I looked, but the others may have something decent. There is one on auction with a bad bore that might be worth looking at.

The 9 year old is always looking for projects and I might let him loose on it if it isn't terrible expensive to make functional.

My dad has a nickel High Standard Double Nine that my daughter loves. One day that will go to her, hopefully long into the future from now. For her, it is priceless for similar reasons.
