What type of winchester 12 gauge do I have?

OK this is going to sound strange but I have a Winchester Pump shotgun and I am trying to determine the exact model. It is marked as a "Winchester Defender" I recieved it as a gift from my first chief. it was the first shotgun I carried in my patrol car. I need to know if this is a 1200 or 1300. i have broken the ejector and need to replace it but there are subtle diffrences.
the serieal number is L2036915 . Any help would be appreciated

OK Mine looks like that. Should it be marked "Winchester 1200 Defender" Or just "Winchester Defendeer"?

As you are most likely aware, Winchester 1200 and 1300 are very similar in appearance, and there were both 1200 and 1300 Defender models. I don't know how the 1300's Defenders were marked as to model number; but, IINM, the 1200's were marked "Winchester Defender" on the barrel. Supposedly, all 1300's have 3" chambers and the 1200's came in 2-3/4" standard and 3" magnum models. So, if you barrel is marked for 12-ga, 2-3/4" shells, then there's a good chance it's a 1200.
