Winchester 1300-What to do?

Ever since I got my H&R Ultra Slug it looks like my Win 1300 Ranger 12 gauge with deer barrel-unrifled is going to become a safe queen. I've been thinking of trading it off on another gun but I hate to part with a perfectly good shotgun. I have 5 12 gauges and 2 others don't get used either but they are antiques.

I have thought about buying a regular barrel for it but I already have a Win 1200. I thought about turning it into a tactical 12 gauge but I'm not sure I want to do that to a gun with the nice wood it has on it. Not a huge fan of the tactical look. Not sure about putting buckshot down the barrel either.

What would you do if you were me? Trade, tactical, new barrel or let it set?

I'd sell the 1200 and get a regular barrel for the 1300. Buckshot won't hurt anything.
