Last shotgun I needed for diamond, and It's my new favorite. With long barrel/laser sight I'd say it barely has a shorter range than the Remington(note that's killing with all 4 shots; I always hold down the trigger, not one shot).
Did all the one shots fairly quickly in core, too. 2.7 K/D with it after 1k kills, it was 2.8 but it sucks really bad with no perks/attachments. S12 is by faaaaaaaaaaaar the worst shotgun in the game, often all 10 shots gave me hitmarkers.
R870>KSG(on a good connection)>M1216>>>KSG(blanks everywhere connection)>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>S12 IMO.
Its not as bad as I thought it was when I tried it. I like it better than the S12 personally, though I think the S12 is probably still the better weapon. Long Barrel/Laser Sight/Fast Mags, though I still occasionally had trouble with groups of enemies.
And so begins a tale of vengeance and betrayal. Destiny by sinner sought. Tragedy by power wrought. Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume.
The M1216 is a pretty terrible shotgun. The ability to do well with it doesn't say anything about the gun itself. Every shotgun in the game (barring the KSG with mouse + keyboard-like aim) pales in comparison to the R870. I believe the S12 is better, however.
