I have a chance on a "lightly" used SPAS 12, asking $900, think I can talk him down to $800, any thoughts

Cumbersome and unreliable in SA.

Too expensive at any price.

I though about getting one but it was really a hollywood love of the firearm. It's not anything special and just really heavy. I got a Benelli M4 and paid $999 (good deal though) and it is a much better combat shotgun. Just food for thought. IF and only if it has a pushbutton safety (not the lever style) and the full length mag tube and full 21" barrel, folder and hook would I even consider picking it up...even for that price. And that's only for the collectors value of it. They're neat shotguns but the pump/auto function isn't really that practical and the buffers wear out and good luck getting another. Just food for thought.

I love the SPAS 12 and your nuts in the head for not picking one up at that price if its a folder!

99.9999% chance you'll never shoot anybody with it (i hope) so buy what looks cool.
