Sights are the same? Bead sights on the Mossy and rifle or custom sights on the Remmy?
I have one of each, and side by side, it would be hard to tell which one produced a certain pattern. If both are the same barrel length, same choke, using same ammo, same sights, same shooter, there shouldn't be that much of a difference.
Hmmm...could be that camo finish on the Remy makes it shoot better in your eyes? And everyone knows that the camo delivers more punch, too
If so, then go buy a Remington, but as someone else stated, I would still keep the Mossy, too.
p.s. - Mossy's are available in camo finish, too
