As fun as the mag fed shotguns like the Saiga and Vepr 12s are, my reason for not buying one was the cost of the mags. I have AR and AK mags, and quite frankly don't have the room for 12G mags. I have shot the Veprs and Saigas and they are fun. I prefer tube fed shotguns for the simplicity and lower cost of not needing mags. I have both gas and inertia shotguns, and the gas gun has been 100% for clay shooting, I really like the inertia guns. If your main use is hunting, I would go with a Benelli inertia gun, like my M2. Extra parts are very expensive though, with just an extra barrel costing as much another shotgun. So, I love the Benelli M2. Then a cheaper version, is the Weatherby Element, which has gotten good reviews, and about 1/2 the cost of the Benelli. Then maybe Franchi. Another good option is the Stoeger M3000/3500. The recoil design is slightly different, but great reviews. I think parts are a tad cheaper if I recall.
