I have a Winchester Model 120 SN# L10950418 Ven Rib WinChoke, 28in. Looking for any info about the year of manufacture or any other information. I can't seem to find any info in any of my books or manuals. Any help or information would be appreciated.

Thnanks.

It was in production from 1984 to 1986, about all I know about them. I bought a youth model Win Ranger 120 in 20 ga. for my Son in 84. J.Woolsey

The 120 is basicly a cheaper verson of the Win. model 1200 with birch wood stock and forend. Parts will interchange. I had one with mixed parts. One note most 1200s were 2-3/4 in. chambers so a if you put a 120 barrel on one it may not eject 3" shells properly.

TC I wasn't refering to that. The BARRELS on the Win. model 120 ARE 3 in. chambers . What I was refering to is that a 3 in. barrel from a mod. 120 will FIT on a 2-3/4 in. RECIEVER from a mod. 1200. Mod. 1200s have a shorter ejection port. If a 3 in. shell is fired in the 120 barrel setting on the short receiver of the 1200, the shell will work fine with no over pressure danger however, the shell will not eject properly when the action is cycled.

Slide, yes you are correct regarding the ejection port. Just wanted to make sure everyone who might not understand was aware of the chamber pressure concerns. When I was a young boy a couple of my friends would occasionally use 3 inchers in 2 3/4 chambers. They couldn't understand why they kicked so much!
