US Winchester 1200 Trench Shotgun

These were produced in the late 60s to early 70s. Most were destroyed after adoption of the Mossberg 500 series. I remember having this shotgun in the company arms room while with 5th SFA 80-90s. This one still soldiers on down range with ODAs.


Bayonet used is the same that equipped the US M1917 Rifle/British P14. Bayonet was also used on US shotguns from the Model 1897 thru the Winchester 1200. This bayonet was made by Remington in Sep 1916. I picked it up at the bazaar to go with a couple of P14s on hand here.

Oh, I like that! Wasn't aware of this piece. Or the concept of having a bayonet on an auto shotty. o.O Did we have anything like this in WWI?! The Krauts were gonna love *that*.... didn't they lodge formal complaint about the ole pump gun?

OK, I need this in my toolbox.

Another great post, thanks. Love the 40 mm grenade casually lying on the bench.

Only 1200 I've ever seen that I liked. Way cool, Combat Diver, thanks for the post!

I'd LOVE to have that. I have a Model 1300 Defender, which is more or less the same gun. I like it a lot more than an 870. I have heard of military 1200s, but until you posed this, I'd never seen a picture of one. Very cool. Thanks for sharing.
