Default Winchester 1400 MK II 12 gauge shotgun

Hello. I have this 12 gauge with serial number N765XXX. Does anyone know if this number is from the 1968-72 production or the later 80's/90's? I just want to get an idea of its age. I know it's not worth much and people have strong opinions against this model, but I happen to like mine. I'm not interested in one's personal opinion about the quality of the Model 1400, just info on the serial number. Thank you in advance for any such info.

might try contacting Winchester and see if they can give you some input on it. they should have a customer service number or email address. at the very least, they may be able to put you in touch with someone who can tell you about it.

Default Winchester 1400

This is a little info that I found online about he 1400 Serial #, Hopefully this will help you

Serial numbers started at 100000, so your gun is number N765XXX. In 1980 750,000 had been made. Just over 1,250,000 were made by the end of 1992, So your gun was made in about 1981

Default PDF files to help date guns

Here is a link to a couple PDF files that I have found online to help with Serial numbers

Proofhouse numbers

Winchester dates

You might find these interesting !

Also, I have quite a few Firearm manuals in PDF that I have been gathering over the years (about 2000)
