Default Mossberg 930

Just wondering what everyone thought of this shotgun? I'm looking for something for trap shooting. I'm not looking to spend a ton because I'm just getting into it. I was looking for a Beretta 3901 but I can't seem to find them. If you have any other suggestions let me know as well.

And why is it do hard to find a shotgun in a walnut finish these days?

For sport, for a traditional outline gun, the Mossberg 930 is award winning. I think if you find the standard sport cartridge cycles and you clean the thing all the time it is probably a fine choice.

I do NOT recommend the 930 SPX as a defensive arm!

Another cheaper dependable is the STOEGER m3500 I bought mine for $555 and I haven't a problem yet it has cycles everything from 1oz Target loads to 3 1/2 in turkey loads

Yeah, I'm using this for trap only. No hunting and certainly not as defensive.

It's been a while since I've posted about this again and I'm getting ready to buy. I'm thinking I want to go with the 930. But I'm wondering, should I go with something with a 3" chamber or 3 1/2" chamber?

I like 3 1/2 for turkeys but 3 inch will work ok also

I'm 99% sure I'll never use it for hunting, just trap. Just wondering which would be better to use, or is there one that is harder to find?

Polygon,

I have a Mossberg Model 930 Camo Turkey and it is a fine shotgun! I have owned it for around 4 years.
In fact I just put one of the new EOTech Holographic camo sight on it today and zeroed it in for a Turkey hunt coming up in Texas in a few weeks. I also love the regular fiber optic sights on the gun! It is a fine weapon and I would highly recommend it. And they do not cost an arm and a leg either! Good price and good quality.
