Model 12 with heat shield and bayonet
« on: April 24, 2018, 06:03:16 PM »
Subject pretty much asks the question. Is Model 12 with heat shield and bayonet lug legal for Wild Bunch? Thanks for answering.

Believe the heat shield is fine, IF it appears to have been originally installed by factory or military unit.   Four years ago the same question was answered with:

Adding a heat shield to a shotgun that did NOT come from the factory with one would be an External Modification.

A bayonet is not allowed on any of our guns during matches, however. 

Since the rules explicitly state a military style 97 is fine:

Quote
Winchester 1897 pump in 12 gauge, original or replica—Civilian or Military style. 

I would expect the same would apply with a Mod 12 heat shielded military variant if it was issued with that shield. 

You would never gain any advantage with a heat shield over the barrel.

Good luck, GJ

?  !

Even more simply this time, heat shield is ok if it was original on gun, as the gun was issued.  If you or some other person added it after gun left factory, it's an illegal external modification.  If it's on a civilian marked 12, its PROBABLY not factory installed.

Bayonet LUG is ok.
