The only 3 1/2" 12 gauge I have in battery is a 24" barrel Nova (was part of a "horse" trade deal) which a Limbsaver was placed on it's stern. It "kicks" a fraction of what my SBE(s)/SBEII did with 3 1/2" cartridges. I have $200 in the shotgun and you can find them for just a little more than that in many quarters.
BTW, I also had a Super Nova (another horse trade) that went out on one (1) hunt...pointed like a magnum yellow locust fencepost...it found a new home at the next gun show.
