I have Winchester 1200 12ga that has been in my gun cabinet for around 20 years. I am interested in the value of it. Was used some when I first got it but has been in the cabinet since. I know nothing about guns, so any advice is appreciated
thank you

My uneducated guess based upon the lack of information that you provided is that your gun is worth between $57.95 and $8,431.00.

Value is strictly dependent on condition - stated as % original finish remaining. Wood must match condition of steel, all original parts, no buggered screwheads, etc.

Don't have the Blue Book handy, but my guess would be about $200 for a mint condition specimen, down to about $75 for one with 50% finish left.

Despite anybody's claim to the contrary, I don't forsee the Win 1200 EVER being considered a collectible.

There are still a few new ones haning around on shelves locally in the $225 range so I would not hesitate if someone offerred me $200 for one. A more reasonable price for a "used" 1200 would be in the $175 range. As mentioned by wwb, I don't see any "collector" value in this model.

I bought one as a back up back up a few years ago for $150 OTD. 99% and in the original box. Later, I gave it to the Boy Scouts. Great gun but, as UD said, they will never be a collectable or go up in value.
