I can cycle my 912 with a 3dr. 1 1/8 oz. trap load. Make sure you switch to the light load setting on the silver part ahead of the spring.

Fit and feel are most important. Take your time and hold and shoulder all three and make your decision based on that. All three guns are high quality autos that you'll be happy with.
... just one thing though... if you're looking to buy a 'heavywieght' gun thats made to handle 3-1/2" mortar rounds ... why the concern with light loads??
It might vary from gun to gun as it did with my brothers SBE and mine. His was able to cycle 7/8oz winchester super speeds and mine wasn't.
jchapman states his 912 will cycle 3 dram 1oz. trap loads and for practical light hunting purposes a 3-1/4 dram, 1-1/8 oz. load will work in all three just fine.
