Stay away from the Mossturds and any 870 that is less than 10 yrs old. If you want a gun to abuse buy a Nova (much better gun at same price point) or if you like wood get a used 870 Wingmaster, Browning BPS, Ithaca or a Winchester pumps. The quality/ fit/finish of those older guns will blow you away. Dont buy into the hype. The only Mossturd I would own is one of their old .22 rifles.

I own both because both are great guns. The Remington though does have a smoother action and a better feel, but I do have to point out that my Mossberg 500 is a pistol grip Cruiser. But in these hard times Mossberg has the upper hand because of the cost. In my home town you can buy 2 used Mossberg 500's or any of it's brothers for the price of 1 used Remington 870. All in all I've never had an issue with either of the shotguns so I plan on buying both more Mossberg's and Remington's in the future.

I would also like to point out that I am not one of the zombie apocalypse dorks. The Mossberg 500 Cruiser was my Pa's. After he died a few years ago my father told me to keep it.
Pa shot a few coyotes, dogs, and killed a few snakes with this Mossy

I dont care if a machine was 100% perfect everytime. It will never compare to a weapon put blood sweat and tears into it. It's the small defects that make a real gun.....a real gun. Its the same as everything else. Nothing beats a hand made piece.

Can you post a link to something showing when the last time an entire firearm was hand made and sold as a production item?

I'm thinking it's been awhile since guns were made by hand.
