I prefer Remingtons because they seems like a more solid shotgun. Not so many jiggling parts and I have never had a failure to feed which happened on my Mossberg three friggin times on Mallards.
It feels like the gun is slipping out of my hand when I use my thumb. It's dumb, I know. It just does. I've never had a failure to feed on either Remington or Mossberg with the exception of some ancient Remington range guns, but they were so dirty that the armorer ended up having to completely break down and soak most of the parts in solvent. The fact that they functioned at all after their abuse was impressive to him.
