Beretta shotgun question

    I saw a Beretta shotgun (possibly model 1201...I'm not sure) in a pawn shop for almost $500. I do know it was a 7 +1 semi automatic (recoil or gas ?) cylinder bore 12 gauge. I suspect that it was primarily aluminum. NRA 95% plus. Pick up or pass ? :confused:

    Oh well... too late I bought it. Beretta model
    1201 FP for $425. 20 inch barrel. Cylinder bore. Rifle sights. 7 +1 semi automatic.

    I was told by 2 friends (whose opinions I hold in high regard) that the Beretta 1201 FP is the poor man's Benelli Super 90

    just dont buttstroke any thing with it
    their recievers are known to break in a buttstroke type situation.
    I know of 2 that have done that,and an old Franchi also.
    the aluminum reciever wont take the stress from whacking something with the stock.
    One guy fell forward on his shotgun and broke it that way.
    I dont know the exact story on the second one.
    The H&K and Benilli and Berretta and Franchi are all made by the same community in Italy, (or so I have been told)
