I have been doing some searching and can't seem to find the info I'm looking for. What is the difference in features for these 3 models? Particularly the 120 and 1200. My local shop has both the 120 and the 1200 for under $200and I have been told to look for a 1300. So what is the differences? Thanks.

I have both a 120 and 1200.

The 120 was made as a budget model 1200, given the choice between the two, go for the 1200.

That being said the 120 is a SUPERB gun regaurdless.

The 1300 and 1400 have a nicer finish; most parts and barrels will interchange between all of them. I have a 1300 with 2 barrels and aside from not ejecting the spent shell very far, it works just fine.

The Winchester 1400 is an automatic though.

the main difference is 1300's speed pump, i never had any feeding problems or any thing else go wrong with my 1300, it is smooth and loose, i actually loaded it once by jerking the gun back and forth real quick, that aint no bs, and thats plenty good for me...if you can get one, get it

since the original factory stuff is not being made any more it will be staying in the gun cabinet for most of the next 20 years:)

if you know where i can a 1300 in a 20ga let me know;)
