The Model 1912, developed and patented by Thomas C. Johnson, was the first Winchester shotgun of the slide action, hammerless repeating type. It was first listed in the January 1913 catalog in 20 guage, with a 25-inch round nickel steel barrel. This was the first Winchester model to be chambered for 20 gauge. The 12 gauge and the 16 gauge were first listed in 1914, the 12 gauge Riot Gun in 1918, and the 28 gauge was authorized in 1934. Factory records show the first delivery of Model 1912 shotguns to warehouse stock was made on August 30, 1912.
The M/12 shotgun with its hammerless slide action mechanism was an inovation. Very popular, it was called the Perfect Repeater. An ideal gun for small-game shooting, it has also earned repute at traps and on the skeet field (Barnes: 1980).
