You will love it. I just put back together my father's old 1200 a month ago. His had been missing the disconnector/bolt stop for the last 12 years. It now works great. Took it out the end of March, and it is very quick pointing. There is also an abundance of parts for it if you need them. The 1200, 1300, and some of the 1400 (auto, which I have also) will fit it. The 1400 is my second favorite, only because of my vintage Remmy 1100. It shoots extremely soft on the shoulder. Good luck with yours and be sure and let us know how it works.

I've got the same gun. My parents bought it for me at Christmas in 1974. I have never had any problems with that shotgun and it fits and handles perfect.

My Dad bought one of those for my 8th grade graduation in 64'. It sold new back then for $99. Great old shotgun but I wish it had a rib.

I had the same gun years ago, but I gave it to a friend because he didn't have a gun,and I let him use mine, he liked it, so I gave it to him.I wish I still had some of the guns that i used to have.Tom
