Winchester model 1200

I've recently inherited my grandpa's Winchester model 1200 16-gauge and I'd like to find out a bit more about it. Specifically, I'm curious to know when it was manufactured. I've spent a bit of time with my friend Google trying to find a site that will get me the details, but I haven't found anything yet. I came across at least a couple of sites (oldguns and proofhouse to name a couple) that will lookup by serial numbers for Winchesters, but they don't include the Model 1200 in their lookups.

Anybody out there have any ideas?

Thanks much for any assistance.

Well I don't know why they wouldn't include the 1200 to look up. The Winchester pump guns go roughly in this order: the 1912, the model 12, the 1200 (including the bargain 120), and the 1300. I don't know when the 1200 started and stopped, but I believe the 1300 started in the 80s, maybe early 90s. I'm sure a little more research will turn it up.

Yep, I've got that far. I know the 1200 was first made in '64 and ended around 1983 when they switched to the 1300. But I was hoping to find the specific year for my gun based on the s/n.

My first long gun was a Winchester 1200, 12ga with a 28 inch barrel, modified choke. Got it in 1967 when I was 12 years old. Still have it!
