Accordingly to my references, it was manufactured in 1983.

I remember someone posting a message that they acquired a Model 1200 new in the box in 1975 and the serial number was in the L837,xxx range.

If it’s a solid shooter I’d say it was. I keep a few around for social equipment and have paid around $250 for most of them in riot gun (1300?) configuration. My first hunting shotgun is a Model 1200, it’s still around here somewhere. As a hunting gun they are serviceable as they are based on one of the best shotguns ever, the Model 12.

I am a little lost on my gun. The barrel was replaced and reads that it is a model 1200 but the serial number dates it to be a 1917 model by what Bert has posted at the beginning of this thread. Can anyone confirm that this gun is a 1200 or is it a 12 with a 1200 barrel on it? ser#165708 

I am looking for another forearm for it but none of the 1200 will fit it. It has a 12 1/4″ forearm length. Looks like I may have to try and fix it.

I did not post that, Vince did, and the information he posted applies to the Model 12 versus the Model 1200.  I believe that if you carefully read my early replies, you will find that your Model 1200 was manufactured sometime in the pre-1968 timeframe.

would serial number 416338 be 1966 or 1967  

since they started with run 100,00 and production was about 75.000 to 80,000 a year a close guess would be 68-69
