Good OU shotgun to cut?

I have been thinking about getting an OU Short barrel shotgun for some time.

I originally wanted a side by side but I just like how the cut down OU ones look with a pistol grip and a 7-10 inch barrel.

At first I wanted to just buy one from a company that makes short barrel shot guns but 99% of them are pump shot guns and the remaining 1% are SXS.

So Unless I find a place that sells premade OU SBSs it looks like I will be buying a full sized one and paying a smith to cut it down (after the $200.00 stamp tax of course)

What I am looking for is a OU that is fairly cheep (I don't want to destroy a work of art) I also want it to have a 3 inch chamber... not because I plan to use it a lot but I would like to shoot a Dixie tri-ball out of it at least once (may be only once)

p.s. would it be possible to put chokes tubes in a barrel this short? Not that its necessary I just think it would be fun. Also let me know if you know a company that makes these guns and sells them with a form 4 transfer rather than a form 1.
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.

all 26 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple. Wish my wife did as well...
