Like, explaining each individual model or just an overview of how Sawed Off, Pump, and Combat work?

I stick with box magazine combat autoloaders.
Fastest on the firing and reload, usually with a 15 to 20 round capacity.
I'm partial to the CS-X versions with nano.

That and a syphon SAW and I'll eat monarchs all day long.

All the other shotguns are either 2 shot sawed-off, tube mags - meaning you reload 1 round at a time, or pump guns which mean you have to manually cycle the next round after every shot.

Best thing to do is get a few different ones/types and head over to the training area near the New Freedom crash site. Try them all out side-by-each and see which ones you like and what they are capable of. The conditions/foes are always the same, so a comparison is valid from case to case.

I do that with all new weapons platforms, to see whether it's going to do in combat anything near the expectation from reading the description, or not.

Depends on what you are using your shotguns for.

Regardless of what anyone else says I'm telling you from Personal Experience that all you need is the following. .

#1) A Courier ( Sawed Off) Fires two sticky grenades

#2) FRC Heavy Scattergun Pump Shotgun ( I prefer Radiation) (Large mag mine has 23) People argue claiming the grindfragger is better because it has a better fire rate. (Total BS) The scattergun shoots a spray instead of straight ahead great for pvp or pve.

These two weapons is all I need for anything in this game keep in mind I leveled my pumps and sawed offs to 20.
The courier is a great gun but it takes time to become good at using it. In pve it's simple to use but in pvp iy takes practice. . I can hit people who are in a full run in the face in pvp now lol.

Courier=One shot kill in pvp (if both grenades stick)
Scattergun= 1-3 Shot kill in pvp depends on mods, perks and pump level.
