They are also great guns for shooting skeet, trap and sporting clays. Barrels are available for them at a fair price even used barrels. Never rule out a good used gun. Some of them were built better than some of the new stuff out there. Just a thought! 03
I will look into that, thanks.

You both have good points, I will deffenitly look into it.

Thanks. Its a very manageable autoloader. Very economical compared to other autoloaders and it has shot everything that I have fed it.

Here is a video of a how easy it is to shoot it...

If your budget is $1000 give and the gun will be used for both clays and hunting do yourself a favor and buy something other than a mossturd. I have seen Browning Golds for $600 used and Benelli M1-Super 90 sporting versions with chokes etc for $800. Either of these is ten times the gun a Mossturd is and are great duck guns. If you don't care about shooting 3" shells I would get a 1100 - softest shooting gun ever made.

And the brand bashing begins...........

NOW!

Seth. I have 3 "Mossturds" in my safe, and all of them have served me flawlessly, as has the Remington 870 and my grandfather's 11-48. 2 of the Mossbergs are old enough to collect Social Security, as is the 11-48. Point is, every brand that makes thousands of the same thing every year is bound to make an occasional mistake. If their customer service is good, and they fix or replace the defective product move ahead and enjoy it. if Mossberg, Browning, Remington, H&R, etc. makes something you are interested in and can afford, check it out. If it is a good fit, buy it. What works for others doesn't always work best for you.

NChunt. Not trying to be a d!ck here. You have a right to your opinions, as do I to mine. We can agree to disagree. i have a friend that will never buy another Mossberg again. His reason, his first and only model 500 (1960s production) went bang when he pushed the slide forward if the shotgun was pointing down. And no, the boogerhook was nowhere near the bang switch any of the 5 times it did that. i can understand and support his reasons for not getting another. His son OTOH picked up a used model 5500 autoloader, and has not had a problem with in the 15 years he has had it. I had a Maverick 88 for close to 20 years problem free. point is, sometimes a gun will leave the factory with a defect. that doesn't make all of their products cr@p.

Yeah,..I don't Care for the Brand Bashing either, personally. Have both Remington(an 1100, just sold 2 870's)And Mossberg (an SA-20) and never any issues with this or any other Mossy I have now Or Prior owned. Just like Some SIGS have issues,..and I don't bash them, either, because they aren't all bad...

First off sorry to offend anyone---It is childish but I do like to use the name Mossturd but I have nothing against them, especially the pumps. The 500s I have shot have worked fine and do what they are supposed to which is all you can ask of a shotgun. My experience with the semis has been less favorable. On more than a few duck hunts I have seen them turn into single shots. Could have been lack of cleaning I dont know but I am soured on them. With the budget the OP mentioned I just feel there are much better options available. Again I apologize if I offended anyone.

Also Mossbergs habit in recent years of making everything tactical has left me cold----the chainsaw thing and the lever action took a way a lot of the respect I had for the company.

My Mossberg 930 SPX has not jammed once. My shotgun is the only experience I have with a Mossberg shotgun, but that chainsaw was ridiculous. I've handled one at a gun show. The only good thing about it was that it was removable.

I also have a Mossberg 715T which is a nice A2 style plinker. I can't get over that chainsaw though and I can't find an actual owner to get thier opinion.

I am glad yours has not jammed but a target/range/SD gun does not go through the abuse a duck gun does. Salt water, mud,etc all play hell on a semi.
