Semi autos are not considered ideal for HD as they may fail to cycle due to various reasons.

Saiga is gas-operated (can be fired from the hip) whereas Benelli uses inertia/recoil (may not cycle in shooting from the hip). If I have to wake up in the middle of the night to neutralise any HD threat, Im likely to fire the shotgun from the hip, instead of mounting it on my shoulder. My preference will be Saiga 12.

Secondly, shotgun cartridges are softer than bullets. Prolonged storage in a Saiga magazine will deform the cartridges, which is likely to give FTF or FTE.

They both have their pros and cons.

Saiga 12.. by far 1 of the most reliable auto loading shotguns in the world.

Last I went to DAAD in Karachi he said its not available currently but if it were it would be in the region of around 175K
