While not in the class of the Model 12 it replaced (the Model 12's machining and fitting made it just too expensive to compete by the early '60s), the 1200 is nonetheless a very smooth cycling gun, IME. Just open the end of the mag tube and take out that wooden's there to comply with game laws. There may be a spring retainer that you have to pry out...I can't recall. Not difficult in any case. Probably wouldn't hurt to give the inside of the mag tube and mag spring a good cleaning anyway. BTW, do not be tempted to stretch the mag spring like some do. If you need a new spring, spend the $7.50 and get one from Wolff.
