It will be difficult to get most of these mentioned for under $ 1,200.00. Perhaps the American version of Benelli may be under a grand $. ? Browning Silvers are possibly in your price range and the Winchester SX3/ or SX2...if you can find one. Essentially the Browning silver and SX2/3 are nearly the same gun. I have been very happy with the silver and have heard good stuff on the SX2/3. And yes...for a few hundred $ more you can get in the Maxxus, M2, SBE's, Beretta's, etc. Good Luck!
