Jim,

Late 1981. The "steel" versus "stainless" steel is a person preference. For those that hunt in wet nasty environments, the stainless steel barrel is probably preferred. If you hunt upland game, the blued steel barrel is nicer (in my opinion).

Model 1200 shotguns are very seldom worth more than $250, especially in used condition.

Bud,

No idea, as there are no published numbers for the early production years. All that can be determined is that it is a pre-GCA 1968 gun.

Bert, to help with the Winchester Model 1200 and DOM issue based on serial numbers with the L prefix, my model 1200 with SN L 837590 was new and in its box in 1975.

I just received 2 shotguns. One is a model 37 4/10 3in and the other is a model 1200 with a serial number of 133196 I’m assuming that based on other posts Im looking at pre1964 maybe... any guesses.

Winchester introduced the Model 1200 in the year 1964, so it is not possible for it to be a "pre-1964". It is my understanding that serialization began at 100000.

Anyone know where to get info on the Model 1200's marketed and sold under the Sears Model 200? I have one, SN 26605, with MOD 273.2250 on the barrel. Thank you.

Hello,

I'm new to the group. I recently purchased a 1200 with SN 375811. Does your reference narrow this one down?
