I have a 1200 that my parents bought for me at a yardsale many years ago.

I've been "refinishing" the stock for a LONG time now and haven't shot it in a long time, but I REALLY liked it. I want to take it out again, soon. I just have to finish scraping and sanding the stock and I want to stipple it instead of the horrid pressed checkering that's on it now.

Mine has the Winchoke tubes, which are a really nice feature.

It is also IMMENSELY strong, with the rotary bolt head locking into the barrel extension.

You could do a lot worse for $199, but in my opinion, not a lot better without a minor miracle.
