Saiga-12 converted is the best shotgun I have owned. Mine has a shock asorbing buttstock and along with the gas operated cycling and heavy duty buffer spring, the recoil is VERY tame. This shotgun laughs off dirt and will munch on any kind of shell you feed it without a burp. Highly reccomend it.
A quality conversion will cost about 1k.
As far as any other semiauto shotgun taming recoil like the saiga.. not gonna happen.. this thing was designed for combat ,ease of target aquisition and and fast multiple shots on a single target. A civilian style semi-auto shotgun's design limits how much recoil can be absorbed.
