Some of the early Mod. 12s were shot with black powder loads, might be part of the barrel problem. I bought a 12C that shot like you are describing and I never could get it to shoot so ended up selling for about 1/2 of what I paid for it. Later bought a !2A that has some feeding problems but is very accurate. Good luck with it.
Black powder loads? Interesting! Iíve never heard of that before! So people would load their own 22 caliber rounds for it?
Yeah the barrel looks crazy so I hope I can keep at it & get it cleaned up a little better
