    I have an original 97 Winchester, it, the Model 12 Winchester, and the Ithaca Model 37 all have one characteristic that I really like in a pump gun, if you hold the trigger down, they fire as soon as the slide locks with a new round chambered. No other shotguns that I am aware of, does this. That said, I use my 97 shooting SASS matches and the bolt will eat your hand if you don't watch what you are doing.

    Model 12 is my all-time favorite Shotgun, unless you start getting into things like Parker Side-by-Sides
