remington 870 or mossberg 500
 
What shotgun is better? The 870 or the 500?

Please use a search engine. There must be 5000 topics on this already.

Mossy 590 mariner with 9 shell capacity. Research to see why. Safety on top where thumb sits. All weather gun. Navy uses it due to salt water proof. 9 rounds! Better quality barrel and parts. Do not ask about soda, it was a joke about Bloomberg.

870 Express quality is third-world as is Rem's customer service that you'll probably need. IM&MO'sOs.

More modifications available for 870. Pistol grip is not a good idea for 500 (Not my thing anyway, but many like those) because of the safety location.

Glock or 1911? Whatchyallthink?

500 has 10 million copies. Someone must like em.

They are both over 10 million and going strong, in spite of some people hating either one.

870 was launched by a brand name company directly in 1951 and sold 10,000,000 in Apr. 2009. Little-known Mossberg started selling the 500 as hardware store brands in 1960 and sold their 10,000,000 in Apr. 2013.

The 500 has obviously caught up and surpassed the 870 literally and figuratively. And there are reasons for that including reliability, pricepoint, ergonomics, the firm's customer service and innovation as well as its OEM and after-market versatility.

Damn that's nice. Perfect. Couldn't ask for more and there's none better. Beautiful. I LOVE Dr. Pepper and I'm so thirsty!

Gun's OK too.

Kidding. ...yours has to be the best of its type on the market today.
