Hi, and welcome to TFF.
The only reliable
source of Winchester "Serial #/Mfg. Date" information is in the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming. http://www.bbhc.org/firearms/records.cfm
They have the Winchester Factory records.....but only on the earlier firearms: http://www.bbhc.org/firearms/popup_W...terRecords.cfm
There is a list in the back of the Blue Book, but it's spotty and only covers a few of the Winchester rifles & shotguns. Unfortunately, the Model 1200, isn't one of them.
