That looks like that's where the original Mossberg sticker was. I had one on the receiver and on the stock when I got mine. As far as tooling marks or scratches, that "could" be from the store inspecting it before sale... And for the dirty barrel, I know every gun IS supposed to be test fired before it leaves Mossberg. At least that's what I've been told by their customer service.

You could put a side-saddle shell holder on there to hide the square.

Is the shotgun a show-piece or a work gun? The first time you take it hunting you will have scratches that you don't have to catch in the right light.

Mine didnt have a sticker on the receiver i only had one on the stock do you think big 5 might hav removed the sticker when they got it? And i bought the combo barrel and both of them were filthy how long have you had your mossy?
