    So the good news is I just picked up a nice condition model 12, unfortunately someone cut the barrel down:bash::bash:. My question though is on it's age, serial number is 283,xxx which looking around online says is 1922. Does that sound right?

    Anything in general I should know about this? Anything special on maintenance or lube points?

    Thanks.

    When they cut the barrel down they cut the price in half. But yes with that 6 digit number starting with 283 it probably pretty close to 1922
