The Defenders in 1200 and 1300 were excellent shotguns. My agency had over 200 in inventory. We shot the heck out of them for nearly 20 years and phased them out. When we surplus them out, I plan on buying 2 or 3.
The only shortcoming is the lack of adjustable sights.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
