Neat shotgun. I've got the commercial variant (read: minus all the fun stuff)

Thanks for spending this years refunds for me

Yes... old parkerized bayonets with lugs are awesome.

That is really nice! I had no idea that they made a military variant of that shotgun. I bought an original in 1965 for $96.00, shot it a few times, then swapped it for a really old Model 12 Winchester.

Thanks for sharing.

Do you have a picture of the end of the barrel?

Did the old 1200s have a steel receiver?

I had a couple of those over the years and they all had aluminum receivers.

Just wondering as I didn't think parkerizing "stuck" to aluminum.

Does anyone know how close the 97's heatshield/bayo lug is to the M1200's?

The receivers are aluminum. They originally had black anodized receivers. I don't know if the later ones and rebuilds had grey anodized receivers or a spray on finish.

Neat.
Thanks for the info. The 1200 action is one of my favorites. Externally the bolt reminds me of an overgrown AR-15 bolt. Internally the bolt reminds me of a Benelli- my 1200/1300s would eject the shell on their own if I didn't hold the front handguard.

For some reason the 1200/1300s never got much respect. I strongly prefer them over a Remington or a Mossberg.

Sweet I like it.

It is truly rare to see an original Winchester M1200 trench gun. My M1200 clone started life as a 1965 1200 that my Dad gave to me years ago. I lucked out and found an original stock and forend and a reproduction heat shield with bayonet lug. If you notice the rear sling swivel is not like the 1903 swivels that you see but rather they are flat and I have found that one from an M79 grenade launcher stock is the correct one for these. The receiver is aluminum and I painted mine with Aluma-Hyde II flat black and parkerized the steel parts.

Here is my clone, still needs park and buttplate.



The heat shield I got from Sarco and it was advertized for a Model 97.
I believe these are Chinese and are the same ones that come on Norinco 97's.
I've heard that a true trench gun barrel won't fit in these, that they are sized for commercial barrels.

Great build! I carried an M1200 in Kosovo in early 2000, I think there still might be a few in circulation.....

my unit in Iraq in 04-05 had a mix of mossberg 500's and winchester 1200's. later in 05 a memo came out asking for turn in of all 1200's for more mossbergs as they did not have any spare parts/armorer support for the 1200's
