Default WTB: Winchester 1200 Shotgun Barrel

I am looking to buy a Winchester model 1200 12 gauge barrel. The barrel need's to be 28" - modified choke- chambered for 2 3/4.

In my early police day's, I had the original barrel cut down to the legal limit and pulled the plug out, and had five 00 buck rounds in it. I used it for home defense and also carried it in my motorhome. I would like to return it to it's original condition as it was a gift from my father in 1964 and then pass it on to my grandson.

If you don't have one, perhaps you have a idea where I can get one for a fair price. I am also searching online, but I was hoping this forum membership might have some insight .

You will not likely find a barrel for a reasonable price, as most will cost more than the gun is worth. You can try Harvey Broome at Broome's Firearms in Fitzgerald, GA....a very honest man to deal with. Also, GOOGLE "Winchester parts Alabama" as there is a company who's name escapes me that sells Wincester parts and would also likely be able to help you.

Default many thanks

I am watching two on auction sites as we speak. Fair to me is going to be $100-150....My dad purchased the 1200 from Sears in 1964, and I'm sure never paid more than $150.00. Although this 1200 is in A 1 condition, there were a lot made and most including mine were full choke. Today's bird hunting shot just can't be used in the full choke, so I need to get at least a modified choke barrel so it can be used by the grandson. I think this barrel is going to cost more than the gun is worth, but I still need to try. I found one in Alabama but the store owner told me his is really not in good shape and I should keep trying other options.
