This shotgun, developed in the late 1980s or early 1990s by the famous Italian arms manufacturing company Pietro Beretta, is, basically, an upgrade over the preceding model, Beretta 1200. The 1201 was manufactured in two versions, 1201F, intended for hunting and sporting, and the 1201FP, intended for police and other such duties. Interestingly enough, the 1201 is extremely similar to the Benelli M1 Super 90 shotgun, and had the same recoil-operated semiautomatic action, developed and patented by Benelli. The production of the Beretta 1201 shotguns had been completed.
I bought this back in November of 2006 from SOG and have put maybe 25 rounds through it. Just don't have enough time for all my toys and want to finish my AR projects so this one is going. Asking $450 plus shipping to your FFL or local pick up...
