I got a 1200 for Christmas in 1963. I actually got it prior to the start of pheasant season, but it was my Christmas.

I had some trouble with it early on. The shell carrier would come up too soon or too late and jam things up. Winchester fixed it. I took it to South Dakota a few years ago and it was good to hunt with it again. I keep thinking I need to take it back for one last hunt together. I am thinking of having the barrel cut from 28 down to 24 or so.

At MP school in 69, we fired a few OO rounds through some plain Jane 1200's.
