    I found an older Win 1200 trap with gold safety, mag cap, and other small parts in 90% condition.32" VR Full choke bbl. So it's pre early 80's in near new condition. What's it worth? I can only find info on 12's not 1200's. It's a beautiful gun, but do these have any inherent problems. I'm shooting my dad's old 101 field grade for trap, but it gives me some trouble now and then. So i'm looking for a cheap trap gun. The 1200 is only 320 bucks. What do the experts say?

    These are pretty good guns and fine shooters. It's worth about $350 or so. Check that barrel length.they only came in 30 inch length.

    I was guessing at 32. It was much longer than a 30 next to it on a 1100. Why are they worth so much less than a 12?

    This model 1200 sounds like the trap grade with monte carlo stock that Winchester produced in 1968. You could also get one with a matching skeet gun with consecutive serial #'s. The only thing that was not real good was the trigger. The gun is worth every penny of $320.00. If that is the gun Winchester produced in 1968 it is worth $500.00 if new, used depending on condition $350.00 to $400.00. They are worth less than a model 12 due to the 1200 had stamped parts. The model 12 pre 1964 did not. For the money the 1200 is a gun good, But you can not compare a model 12 to a 1200. A model 12 is the best pump gun ever made. The model 12 is ingrained in Trapshooting history, end of story.

    At one time I owned a trap mod 1200 pump and a trap mod 1400 auto. I think both had aluminum receivers. Larry Evans
