In the late 70s, MD DOC bought both Winchester 1200s and the S&W Japanese made clone of the 870 for institutions.

Both kinds were withdrawn by 1981, they did not hold up to the abuse and neglect common to agency weapons.Replacements were all 870s.

BTW, the armory at the MD House of Corruption at the time held about 20 mixed Model 12s and 97s in good working order.They could not be issued.

Be that as it may, I've run across plenty of 1200s and 1300s since then giving yeoman service and getting a modicum of PM and TLC.
