You can find a 870 used from 200-300, this one was handed down, it is a super mag. 25" barrel. The mount I got off ebay for 30 with shipping. The stock was a gift. But was 120 and my optic was a gift from my grandpa. 40 bucks new. There are only 2 things I bought for this gun, the turkey choke and the optic mount. I went this way because all I have to do between turkey and deer its change choke, then re sight in. all for 50 bucks there are a lot of options to go under 400 range. The 870 and 500 will probably be your best in terms of reliability vs the length you own that gun. You will be able to hand both those guns down to your kids one day. And it will shoot like it was right out if the factory. As long as you take care of it.

with out the stock that's $300-400 for the gun mount and red dot. you can go with different options and such. get different prices. on gun broker.com there is an mosberg 835 for 200. go check out that site too.

The first shotgun I hunted with was a 385k. My dad sold it to a guy in the trailer park he and mom owned in NC for $20, and never even asked if I wanted it. The guy who bought it turned it into a sawed off and ruined it. Man I was pizzed at the old man for a while afterward. I loved that old mossberg. Maybe that is why I own 5 old bolt action shotguns, I miss that first one.

My dad bought me mine when I was 11 and somebody had painted the barrel pink and the stock was all screwed up so we stripped the barrel down and had it reblued and then I took the stock to school and refinished it in woodshop class now I wouldn't trade that old 20ga for the most expensive benelli out there

I bought a New England 12 gage for 135 it works good but there is a minor ejector problem of the shell but besides that has great pattering and does not kick much.

Get one with a bull barrel and it takes care of the weight. I got one in 12 ga that weighs about 12 lbs

I'm actually curious what my gun weighs now. It actually should weigh less than 10lb fully loaded.
