    have owned 3 of them over the years. Currently have a 1200fp that I purchased from robertsontradingpost off gunbroker about a year ago. I know there is always the argument over pump vs auto, but I do not often find love for these shottys. Lots of talk about Benelli, or varies pumps. If you have not shot one, then you should, inertia guns are light and fast, and these can be found for half the cost of the benelli. Production of them stopped in the '90's, but I bought my last one for $389 I think. 7rd capacity, though some of the 1201's have a crimped magazine (post ban) and only hold 5.

    mine is a post ban, but i love it. new for $300. they kick hard, due to their like-weight, but i don't have a problem with that. it is not a dove gun:wavey:

    The berettas are great under rated guns. IMO
