Got 2 Model 12's. A 1953 16 ga. and the replica Browning made in 1991 in 28 ga.

Nice guages. Does the Browning one have the original-style function trigger, the tromboning, trench-gun type? These were the top choice for dangerous game, since one could hold the trigger back and keep pumping, as one can do with a Single Action Army revolver.

I never fired a 28, and look forward to it. I am told they are still in use for quail in the Southeast. Perhaps for woodcock, too....but I can hardly imagine hitting one solidly without at least a 16, which is also a classic, real gentleman's guage.
