Then use that as the barrel on it now is a 28" 3" Mod. I doubt it will cycle light loads. That may be my best option. Or at leas the most economical! What say you all?
It might or might not - try one box of the light load you are contemplating using and see if it works. I own Beretta gas guns (A400s) and mine will always cycle my reloads which are 3/4oz in 12 gauge - (REALLY soft on the shoulder).

A fixed Mod choke will serve you pretty well overall.../ I shoot a Mod choke for Trap singles from 16 yds ...and back to 20 yds.

90% of the time for sporting clays I will shoot a pair of Mods in an O/U...but will occasionally switch to an IC or an Imp Mod in one barrel...once in a great while I will shoot a Skeet choke or a Full choke. But that is entirely dependent on the course...and every course is different.

Mod choke is too tight for Skeet..an IC might work ...but a Skeet choke is better.

Most 5 stands I have seen ...an IC or Mod will work fine.
----------------
If I were shooting a gun with only one barrel...I would tend to overchoke it a little vs under choke it ...so I would stay with a Mod...90% of the time..

If you keep that gun clean and properly lubed ...it may shoot the light loads / but it isn't so much the amount of shot in the shell ( 7/8 oz, 1 oz, etc ) ...its more about the velocity...as long as its up around 1200 fps, it will probably be just fine.

A semi auto with a 28" barrel is about the same overall length as an O/U with 30" barrels....so there is nothing wrong with the 28" barrel.

I bought one!!!

Went to
Scheels today and they bought my beretta. So I went and bought a gun I've been drooling over for quite some time. A Sig Sauer T25 Aurora. I paid $1400 which I believe is a great price on a great gun. Thanks for all the help on this one. I tried to upload pics to no avail
