FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Winchester Model 1200 pump-action shotgun was introduced in 1964 as a more modern and low-cost replacement for the Model 12, and remained in production until 1983 when it was succeeded by the model 1300.
It was available in barrel lengths of 30-inch and 28-inch and chambered in 12, 16, or 20-gauge.
Variants also included either fixed chokes or Winchester’s Winchoke system, a quick change tube to allow the easy replacement of chokes.
The Model 1200 was also one of the first shotguns to utilize a rotating bolt.
The Winchester 1200 was first offered as a sporting and hunting gun, while the combat variant, known as the 1200 Riot, was widely adopted by a variety of US law enforcement agencies.
This particular model has a polished and checkered, wooden forend and stock, jeweled bolt, and 28″ barrel with fixed, Modified choke.
It also includes a Mershon Recoil Absorber.

The finish on the barrel is excellent except for a few, small spots of slight surface rust (easily removed).
