But to stay on topic n price range more importantly. Id choose rem 870. Onli because i have one. Which is the point on these two guns or just about any gun comparison. All depends on what you feel man. Just like ford v chevy owners. Most choose on what they grew up with or around. Or even which product placement got into their subconcious more. We have a wierd condition as humans of getting attached to items or brand names. Like they said above shoot or handle both n you do you. Make your own choice. N let us kno wat u chose

If you want a solid gun you be able to keep forever you want the 870. How hard is it to move a safety with your trigger? Plus if you practice with your weapon it doesnt matter where the safety. What sells the 870 is the smooth bolt. There has never been a 500 that could cycle as fast an 870. Let all the kids think they are hot stuff because they have a chainsaw on their firearm and buy a real gun that isnt a poor copy of a hand crafted firearm. If anyone has a remington 31 you know exactly what im talking about. How did mossberg take that design and screw it uo that much
The Remington was a good design. Thats why Mossberg picked it up after Remington found them too costly to produce, and the patent ran out. Mossy improved the design, double action bars/double extractors/ alloy reciever/ etc, Thats how we got the 500, the most reliable pump gun ever produced.....

Well said readygirl.

Closing a rusty car door?? Really?? Sounds like a pissed off Remmy fan boy. Too bad all their guns are really starting to suck.

Mossberg, because of the safety location, the aftermarket parts, the fact you can fix most feeding problems with a hammer and a board. (elevator and those flat bars on the side that hold the shell in the mag) and you can quickly pull the slide back to the point it presses on that feed bar then drop your new round on the elevator and chamber it. I don't know about the 870 but that can't be done on a 1200. The elevator raises too soon. Yeah, they rattle even with twin action arms and the little springs, but so does a 1911 and you don't hear a lot of whining about them.

I am pissed off because the whole industry is turning into a joke. Everybody's doing it, even remington. I remember when guns were guns. Nobody was worried about zombies. I always fond a old police 870 more attractive then any of the new mossbergs. This new generation would rather buy a cheap piece of metal compared to the hand fitted guns of yester year. To be honest id take a winchester 97 over anything in the world. They are relativly the same price and with the older gun it was hand built not a machine. It true the 870 is goin to crap to but what isnt?

Im with you , I have a couple tacti"cool" shotguns. But i appreciate the look of good wood furniture. You remind me of the guys i trap shoot with on Wed nights. I think they like to sit around , and talk about, and show off their OLD shotguns more than they luike shooting. This is my trap gun, nothing fancy, but show up with a "zombie killer" shotgun at the trap range, and those old farts will give you a rough time.........lol.....

If you really want to whine about Mossberg 500s,

perhaps the fact they kick like a mule on crack

is relevant.

As someone else stated, people like the 500

for many of the same reason they like the 1911,

dependability, loose tolerances, ease of maintenance,

cost.

When I'm at home with the 1911 at my side, and the 500

in the closet, I feel safe as in the womb.

It's not "machines" It's cast and stamped parts and manufacturers using the settings in the CNC machine centers to run less desirable castings. That, and high turn over rates leaving you with operators who don't know what good is. CNC machines and robot welders will give you near perfect parts all day if everything else is taken care of.
