Pump gun addition

Have a Browning 12 ga. BPS Stalker, 20 ga. Browning BPS engraved, vintage Rem Wingmaster 12 ga., Benelli 12 ga. Supernova, Benelli 20 ga. Nova, Winchester 12 ga. SXP waterfowler, want to add another pump. My wish list is as follows:
Ithaca 12 ga. Waterfowler
Winchester SXP Black Shadow
Weatherby 12 ga. PA-08 Waterfowl
Mossberg 12 ga. 500 Field
Mossberg 12 ga. 835 Ulti-mag
CZ 12 ga. Magnum Waterfowl

Any votes for any of the above or are there others to consider? You can probably tell I am not interested in an auto.

Re: Pump gun addition

My pump action criteria is a suitable gun for bird hunting- I am not interested in convertibility to a tactical/riot gun...I have used all of mine for duck, turkey, dove, and snipe- though must admit the last two birds are becoming more difficult to find areas to hunt. I like the novelty of a 10 ga. BPS, but in practical terms not practical here, and for turkey I like the light weight and effectiveness of a 20 ga.
The Ithaca is premium price, kind of like a new Rem Wingmaster, but nary a review on them.

Re: Pump gun addition

Of the ones I own, the Benelli Supernova fits me the best. It is right at 8#with the 28" barrel which is also ideal in taming recoil for me. The newer SXP waterfowler is 7# and a bit less effective versus recoil but it has a very smooth action right out of the box. The Mossberg 835 is dimensionally good, the ported barrel is a big question mark. I did not list any Remington 870's- I am very much put off by a lot of negative reviews on recent models.
