Hello Bert,

Thanks for sharing your knowledge on these guns.  
I just procured a Winchester Stainless Marine 12GA., with serial no. of L18954xx.

There is no indication whether this is a Model 1200 or 1300…

Would you know the approx. date of manuf and what model it would be, please?

Thank you Sir in advance!  

Jim,

The S/N indicates that it is a Model 1200 manufactured in the year 1985.

First off, my apologies of this old thread revival. 

I recently received my dad’s 12GA 1200. SN L1462889.

I’ve read the entire thread and I’m happy to see that my “personal dating” system of this one seems to be in alignment with previous posts. I have memories of him keeping it loaded under the ledge of his water bed in 1985ish.

I’d greatly appreciate someone, perhaps Bert, giving a quasi-confirmation.

Thanks!

Per the reference I have, your Model 1200 was manufactured in the year 1983.
