This Benelli really serves no purpose other than to make noise given it isn't rifled for slugs and has no threads for a choke. I suppose I could order a new barrel but you might as well buy a whole new gun.
Personally, I would just go out and buy a semi-auto 12gauge shotgun that takes chokes. I would get a tube style magazine gun because I can put a plug in the gun and take it bird hunting if I felt like it. (You can't really do that with the Saiga.
Other than the "Look" of the AK shotgun, its really not that practical. Magazines will be expensive for that gun and again, its a 12ga. I'd rather have a shotgun under my bed that I can take hunting rather than being an Emergency only weapon under the bed.
In your case, I think I would sell the Benelli (Pump) and just go out and buy a good used semi auto shotgun.
Myself personally, I have a 12ga Remington Semi auto shotgun, my wife has a Beretta 20ga semi auto, and for home defense we have a Mossberg 590. No offense to the semi auto shotgun, but the racking of the 590 in a dark home will send a message to any burgler in the home. (Remember its dark and you cant see but they can hear that noise.) I'd rather have them instantly run out of my house rather than having a fire fight in the halls. Don't get me wrong, if I see the intruder I will send a round of 000 buck their way.
But again this is all my opinion.
