Our Assessment: From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winchester_Model_1200 "The Winchester Model 1200 was introduced in 1964 as a low-cost replacement for the venerable Model 12. A small number of these weapons were acquired by the United States Army in 1968 and 1969. The military style Model 1200 was essentially the same weapon as the civilian version, except it had a ventilated handguard, sling swivels, and a bayonet lug. The Model 1200 was succeeded by the Winchester Model 1300 in 1983 when U.S. Repeating Arms Company became the manufacturer of Winchester firearms. Production of the Model 1300 ceased in 2006, when USRAC went bankrupt." This high condition 7-shot 12 gauge pump action shotgun is perfect for home defense, as the configuration may hint. With the sling and Limb Saver recoil pad, it will do great in the field with slugs against large and dangerous game. Please see our pictures and good luck.
