I have heard about the rusty problem many many times. The old 870's are great, the new ones, not so much.

I have seen a lot more than Remingtons having issues, especially with the newer cheapie shells. Why if one buys a NEW gun and experiences issues do they not call the manufacturer? If they don't care about a warranty, why did they buy a new gun?
I prefer the Remington but the Mossberg will also likely outlive your grandkids with reasonable care.

I like Mossy; but, love my 870. She will put a shoulder hurtin' firing slugs and 00 buckshot. No issues, always breakdown and clean after firing at the range.

I wouldn't trade my 870 for any other gun out there. I've had it since I was 16 (55 now) and I've never had a lick of trouble with it. Brought down countless quail and pheasant with it. That said, I'm thinking I do want a 500 around for home defense and a snake gun. I've heard pretty much all good about the gun since joining FTF.

A .357 snubby loaded with bird shot is an example of a snake gun.
