    Dang, I use I was not bleeding so much from recent firearm purchases or I would jump on this 20" Semi. Have had the 1200 field and has been a terrific shotgun for me for all around use. No longer shoot birds, have even though about have the barrel cut down. Few parts, light weight, always reliable.

    I have one that I bought new with the combination stock. They are a great option for a home defense gun.

    That batch is gone. Keep a eye out. If they are have more after Christmas, it is a done deal.

    Too bad that the field 1200/1201 has a small barrel ring, effectively preventing mag tube extensions. I'd love to use it for 3-gun but now it's a waterfowl and spare shotgun for me. A very nice and reliable one at that.

    If I ever chose a semi-auto in riot configuration that Beretta would be high on my list since I don’t like mag extensions at all.. I much prefer a four shot tube for close quarters work - but that’s just my personal opinion. Add a butt cuff with five extra rounds and a sling... I’d be ready to go on the street.

    After writing this I checked out the used offerings cited above and realized that none of them appear to show a four shot tube... so back to the drawing board for me...

    The 1201F has and can be plugged to two round capacity. Much like all standard length S90/Montefeltro/Centro/etc. tubes regardless of barrel ring diameter. AFAIK, 1201FP large ring tube is 5 or 6 rounds.

    I got 3 of the black on plastic trade-ins from a gunbroker seller a few years ago for a little over $300/ea (maybe as much as $350, can't remember exact amount). They looked like you'd expect from a issued gun that rode around in the trunk of a car. All cycled 1 1/8oz 2 3/4dram cheap birdshot w/o issue, something that I had read that they may have trouble with. Recoil is rough, but not as bad as a short 870 (18.5" 870 is not for me...). If I ever run across a deal on the choate pistol grip stocks I'd be all over that.
