My advice? Do what I did when the daughter and wife both started hunting. Buy one of each used. I have owned both, and neither one has ever let me down.

Or, try this:

Buy both used, order some aftermarket crap, Disassemble both, put the parts into a pile. Build 2 guns out of parts of both, and keep one of them. You could call it the Mosington 1370. Or maybe, the Remingberg 1300. Who knows, you may just wind up with a better gun than either company makes. Anyway.....

Seriously. Find a friend or 2 that own both of the shotguns you are considering, and set up a day at the range. Try both in every type of shooting you will do that can be practiced at said range. Afterwards, take the information you now have for yourself, and make your decision based on that information. Best of luck, and let us know what you get.

P.S. Include pictures. We love gun porn!

Good choice just don't shoot Winchester low brass. The brass (cheap metal) expands in the chamber after being shoot and gets Jammed in the action.

I've never noticed that before.

I've not had a problem with low brass, only shell ever stuck in the chamber was some junk I shouldn't have even been shooting, it was rusted and I emry clothed off the rust but was still badly pitted and didn't want to come out the chamber.

I've never had that problem with low brass in any of my shotguns. Every shell I have put through them has fed, fired, and ejected with no problems.

I have the Weatherby PA-08 with interchangable barrels - and 18" and a 28". I also had the synthetic stock and forearm swapped out for high gloss walnut at the Weatherby factory in CA. The barrels swap in a little over a minute. The action is very smooth - I have shot about 100 rounds through it so far but plan to take up skeet shooting so I'll see how it does after several hundred rounds have been cycled. There are a few people on YouTube that claim to have several thousand rounds through a PA-08 shooting Skeet.
I think it is a great shotgun for the price. Factory service was good as well and reasonably priced.

I'd love to get a remington wingmaster that's badly worn but not pitted and use aftermarket upgrades to restore it slowly over time
