Who out there has experience with either of these riot guns?
I would appreciate any experience based opinions on either.
I have found an 1100 Tactical and a Beretta 1201FP for the same price and I'm thinking about adding one or the other to the collection.

I've competed with an 1100 for a few years, so it'll get my vote!

Thanks!
Any foibles with the 1100?
What, if anything, did you add or modify?

Bone stock older 1100! It got a cleaning every couple thousand skeet rounds or so ....

Get the Remington 1100. More parts/accessories for it.

Get the Beretta 1201FP, if you ever wanted a Benelli M-1 but couldn't afford one.
Because the Beretta 1201FP was basically Beretta making a copy of the Benelli M-1 Super 90.

Beretta Holding Group owns Benelli.
While Benelli was still establishing it's name in the law enforcement shotgun field, Beretta took the Benelli intertia recoil system from the M-1 and made the 1201FP. Beretta discontinued the 1201FP as soon as Benelli established itself.
