Yep, the new style works just fine, but I had to spread it a tad bit more.

LOP was 14 3/4" with the pictured butt pad. Now it's ~13 1/4".  :)

The fit at the lower tang is off, but solid. From what I've read, nothing else fits a Model 12...?

M12 buttstocks are not normally longer than 14" LOP.  Of course, adding a thick rubber recoil pad to a stock originally made for a thin hard butt plate (if not cut down appropriately) easily adds 3/4" to LOP.

Yours in that picture does not quite have the lines of a factory stock, so I would guess it's a replacement to obtain the long LOP.

Good luck, GJ

The Wild Bunch Wire / Are Model 12 stocks "long"?
« Last post by Three Foot Johnson on July 04, 2019, 03:25:56 PM »
I just picked up a decent '37 vintage M12, looked it over, and went out & shot it. The stock seemed to be longer than it should, but it appears to be a M12 stock, although the finish/patina doesn't match the fore end. Checking it against my five 1897's, it had an inch and a half longer LOP. Some masking tape, spacer blocks, wood clamps, and a finish blade in my miter saw fixed it.  ;)

I'm 6'4"/300 pounds, so for it to feel "long" to me is saying something.  ;D

So I discovered 2 things today...

1. the lifter/carrier I ordered is for a 3" gun.
2. The screw that holds it in is left hand thread.. (broke two screw driver bits before I figured it out)

I have another lifter on the way. This one is definitely the right one... I hope...lol...

At EOT this year, of the top eight shootoff in both ladies and men, there were only two shooters who used the '97. Maybe that should tell you something. Model 12s were used by the winners in all categories, except maybe one.

Boomstick, as long as didn’t move with a cocked, loaded gun or let it leave your hand, that’s a no call.

Only when using that ammo. By chance, you have a magazine that holds 8. You load 8 in and fire that round in the completion of the stage, then the penalty is earned.  In your original post, shooter did not “overload”. Absolutely nothing wrong with what they did to complete the stage, right up until they fired those two extra rounds. Had they stopped at the 14th round, dropped mag and cleared gun, there would not have been a penalty.
I hope that helps clear it up for you.

i was wondering on that myself.

at sundays WB match i had a misfeed and dropped the mag 3 rounds fell out, i put that mag back in, fired it dry and loaded another full mag in to finish but at the end of the string i had one in the chamber and 3 in the mag. dropped mag, cleared it and was assessed no penalty, which is what i couldn't understand. i thought for sure doing that was wrong.

Good discussion.

These situations are likely to arise with the pistol especially now that the rule limiting the number of rounds that can be loaded in a magazine has been eliminated.

Just a note, the rule was not eliminated; it was changed to the following. "Magazines must be standard length and cannot hold more than eight rounds."
