Default Winchester Shotgun

I recently bought this gun from a friend and I am confused on the background of this shotgun. Does anyone know about the gun? Any help would be appreciated.

It looks like a model 1897 Winchester.

Disregard that. It's not a 1897 Winchester. I'm doing some research to help you out.

Looks like a model 1912 or model 12 as it's sometimes called. Looks to be modified somewhat...
My model 1912 is a two piece. If you turn the magazine tube a quarter turn it breaks down to two pieces.
Just a guess...

I agree, it looks to be a model 1912 Winchester. It doesn't appear to be a Trench Gun due to the lack of a heatshield and bayonet lug.

Looks like the heat shield and bayonet lug was taken off the markings on the underside of the barrel or am I mistaken?

This is a pic of a trench gun I have found, Win 12.

Thing throwing up a flag is it has a hammer. Now, I am not a gun guru by any means so this could be just a thing, but are there other models of trench gun without the hammer?

Also, this is in line with what you posted as well.

That marking is supposed to be for a trench gun.
