I am convinced that, much as there has only ever been one large Fruit Cake that was cut into pieces that are re-gifted every Christmas, there was only one manufacturing run of 10 ga. guns and they are waiting to be sold or resold after being fired once.

Like scandium 2" .357 revolvers...

A scandium, small frame .357 hurts, so does a 10 gauge, but what about a small, scandium framed ten gauge pistol? How would that feel?

I have a 835 and 870...
I think the Remington has a more smooth and not as a rattley action as the 835.. But I am setting up the Mossy as the house gun. Mainly because what I want to do the Mossy fits the need a little better....for me. If I was only going to choose one it would probably be the 870 Express Mag as it's only shortcoming is it only can take a 3" max round. But I honestly don't see anyone using 3.5" rounds in a house gun anyway. If you are going to have the bbl cut I guess it wouldn't matter but if you wan tot replace the bbl the Rem barrels seem to price a little higher. For whatever that's worth. More parts availability with the 870 too but there are options getting more plentiful for other models.

I had a 500 and something about it just didn't sit well with me. It's slop seemed to be worse than the 835 and I already had the other two so it went in the trade bin, Honestly though slop in a shotgun action really does not bother me as much as it does others. I see it as more AK like. More room for crap to sit and the thing will still function fine. Defense weapons really don't need to be as tight as target weapons. As I said look at an AK, hell check out a GI 1911. Those things rattle like crazy and they are just fine.

Either the Express 870 or the Mossy 835 will work for most things you will use a shotgun for.

I bought a Remington 870 Express Super Magnum back in 98 for $320. With the right choke tubes there isnt anything you cant kill with that shotgun. At that price I wouldnt consider it cheap. I was a new papa at that time and money was tight. I wanted a shotty that could handle any situation or any hunt and the super mag gets it done. If I was looking for a cheap shotgun I would look around a flea market for a single shot shotgun. I bought my first one in 1980 at a flea market for $35. It was a revelation 16ga. Dang good ole shotgun.
