The Winchester Model 1200 was first offered to the public in 1964. It was used by US Marines and US Army soldiers in Vietnam, as a supplement to the Ithaca Model 37s and Remington 870s. It was a successful design and was also adopted in a police riot model for many departments across the United States. Though the shotgun was well received, Winchester wanted to develop a 'cheaper' shotgun that would cut into the market of Remington & Mossberg. The Winchester Model 1200 was one of the models to be phased out, when the U.S. Repeating Arms Company acquired Winchester from Olin in 1980. The 1200 eventually ceased all production by 1981 and ceded the pump shotgun line to the Model 1300.

The Winchester Model 1300 shotgun first appeared in 1978 as an 'economy' version of the 1200 and ultimately took over the pump shotgun line for Winchester in 1981 when the 1200 was discontinued. In addition to the hunting/sporting variations, the Model 1300 has been sold worldwide as the Tactical Police model, Slug Hunter, Marine and Stainless Security version. Now the 1300 has been discontinued by Winchester (eliminated when the 'heads' of the U.S. Repeating Arms Company also ended the classic Model 1894 from their offerings.) Despite the closing of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company the 1300 is still produced under the name "SXP" (Super X Pump).


The Difference between the 1200 & the 1300: They look pretty much identical so one must consider the finish and sometimes, the wooden furniture to determine the time frame of the firearm. The Winchester Model 1200 had a deep factory blued receiver and barrel. Its action was heavier and 'harder to use' than the updated Model 1300. The Model 1300's internals were re-designed and is now considered a 'fast action pump shotgun' (lighter weight materials and design make it very easy to rack) and it is coated with a proprietary non-glare finish and uses both steel and composite materials in its construction. Both the Model 1200 and the Model 1300 were released in a 'hunting version' (longer barrel and limited shell capacity for legal hunting limit) and the "Defender Version" which was the riot, self defense, combat shooting variant, with longer tubes for expanded capacity and shorter (20" and 18") tactical barrels.

Historical Usage: Films make mistakes all the time. However, as a rule of thumb, the Model 1200 was correct for the Vietnam War and was used in small numbers from 1968 to 1969 (along with Remington 870s and Ithaca 37s) by special ops units and United States Army soldiers and marines in the war zone. The Model 1300 is correct for any film occurring after 1981, and by that time, the 1200 was no longer being sold.

Notes

Despite the fact that 'guns of the world' website claims that the Winchester 1300 was introduced in 1981 (http://world.guns.ru/shotgun/sh05-e.htm), Winchester's own manual claims that the shotgun was introduced in 1978.
