  • Stevens S1200

    Last March I bought an S1200 Stevens shotgun new which was made in 2016. Bought a turkey choke for it. Fired 3 shots patterning. Took it hunting, nothing. Yesterday, took it apart to clean and lube. Forgot to put finger over firing pin and bing, shot outta there. Like an idiot, I was cleaning on the deck. After visual searches by several people and my metal detector, nothing. Called Savage for replacements. The gun has been discontinued and there are zero replacement parts available. CS is checking with gunsmith at Savage but isnt looking good. I'm pretty hot about it.
    Dont buy the Stevens S1200 folks, should you run into one. Oh and after 40+ years with Savage rifles, I'm done with them

    That sucks. I've discovered the use of magnets for finding small ferrous parts that my old eyes can't seem to locate.

      You might try buying a new firing pin directly from the manufacturer AKDAS. They have a contact page and you've got nothing to lose at this point. Here is their contact page link: https://www.turkish-manufacturers.co...sti_45703.html

      They also have a facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pg/akdasarms/about/

      SEE POST #7 BELOW BY BEAR. THESE LINKS MAY NOT GET YOU ANYWHERE. RD

      Every once in a while in life we need a policeman, a lawyer, a doctor and a preacher. We need a farmer three times a day, every day.

            Actually, on the day I posted the address to you, out of curiosity, I sent off a question just to see if they'd answer. No response for over a week.

              The web address isn't for AKDAS. IT is just a Turkish Economic developement group, not firearm manufacture.

              I doubt the arms mfg ever got your inquiry.

              Try this: http://www.akdassilah.com/en/contacts

              or [email protected]


              Expect language problems, suggest you keep your inquire short and specific...just the part you need (no history).

              good luck.

                  Sorry guys, dropped the ball on this thread. Turkey finally did get back to me. They dont have the parts for that particular gun and referred me back to Savage. So I gave the gun to my son for parts should he need them. Still have no idea where the pin went. Using a metal detector I can find only pennies and beer can pop tops from Dad's poker games years ago. Very much appreciate the help

                    Does your son have the same gun? If so, perhaps a good machinist can make one if he has one to copy. Or perhaps you can alter a different model to fit. RD

                      Building on what Rocky said. try to buy a used s1200. used the pin in that as a guide for machining a new pin. then sell both.

                        My son has it for parts should he ever need them. It was a strange gun in how the loading process worked. Not like any other gun I've had or used. Good riddance to it
