I seem to have got darn lucky. My unflagged one runs anything I put in it. I haven't shot my backup enough to know if it will or not. I do have a carrier with flag that someone needs more than I do......

Boggus,

Email me on the carrier and let me know what your asking for it. I would like a flagged one in my back up.

Thanks,

Tully

Jorge,

It maybe time to actually contact a gunsmith? Might get things done quicker for you.

I have seen shooters with an M12 without a flag that have problems and some don't.  If a shooter tends to cant the gun when operating an M12 without a flag the shell can have a tendency to get misaligned.  Luckily I have not had problems with my unflaged one.  Your milage may vary.

I have found it very easy to place the cut-off lever in the gun incorrectly.  This has bitten me (I'm embarrassed to say) more than once.  The front edge has to go behind the barrel, in an invisible slot in the receiver, before being dropped into the side of the receiver. 

I know everyone knows this.  But, as I say, it has bitten me more than once.

Also, I've found the cut-off lever likes to ride in a substantial pool of oil.

Hope my confession helps someone.

I got my model 12 from Pecos Clyde and it works better than I do.
Contact him.
