not the fanciest, and not as many parts and accessories for it as the Rem 870, but they are fine, reliable, simple, and easy to take down and clean. I really miss mine. It was a 500 12 gauge. I saw an o/u mossberg at Wal-Mart, and I really thought it was pretty sweet looking, would love to see how it shoots.

Thinking of getting a Mossberg 590A1 12 gauge.
For a long time it was a toss up between that and
a Remington 870. I think Mossberg is in the lead.

mossberg is aluminum
remington is steel

mossberg ambi top safety
remington r handed trigger tang safety

mossberg cheaper

aftermarket parts
remington has more variety, slight advantage
mossberg has plents of options

mossberg offers a blackpowder barrel for hunting conversion (haven't heard of anyone actually using it)

my preference... mossberg

personal choice got some bad remington ammo once, and am pissed at them

and mossberg shotguns are approved and used by US military, that is a pretty strong endorsement

BOTH ARE GOOD GUNS, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED BY EITHER ONE

ive got a 590A1 and a 835. i like em waaaay better than the remingyon 870. i prefer the tang mounted safety for a shotgun. the controls for me are more ergonomic than the 870. if you damage one beyound repair they are cheap enough to get a new one and not worry about it.


both my mossbergs after about the first 300 rounds run like a greased up naked deaf guy being chased in a pharmacy...

I love my Mossberg 88. Have put 150 shells thru it so far. Flawless! Great HD weapon.

I had a 500 for years and it was a great shotgun. I sold it and now have this Mossberg 9200 Zombie Slayer. Ten rounds of Zombie slaying goodness in a semiauto.
