Default What's The Difference Between These Two Shotguns?

I am looking to pick up one of these after Christmas for home security and don't know enough about all of this to know what the real difference between these two are and how that difference will show itself when using it. The 55605's muzzle break looks more like a sound suppressor almost. I see it has an attachment rail but the muzzle break differences are a mystery to me. Is one "better" than the other? Please help. Thank you.

Well ive seen these and i dont really own one but i do own a rem. 870 . Well anyways they are both pretty much the same weapon but the first mossberg with the barrett/ christmas tree shaped muzzle end piece will let gas escape out of the the ports facing towards you. But the gas wont hit you it will actually help you by letting more gas escape reducing the recoil. The second one lets less gas escape and strait out the side. I would pick the first one and plus keep this in mind. You can always change the end piece.

Thanks, that's kinda what I was thinking. I figured they both would help in recoil but like you say I'm guessing the one on the left would do a better job with recoil but the one on the right does have a rail which is nice. Since posting this I have begun debating on whether I want the pistol grip above or this stock mossberg 50772 shotgun... hmmmm... I still have a few weeks to decide... I'm starting to think in a home defense mode quick aim, stability and a larger capacity might out weigh the less confining pistol grip.

FWIW, the muzzle brakes on both will make them INCREDIBLY loud. I mean REALLY.

If you have not spent time shooting a pistol gripped shotgun, would urge you to do so before buying.

Right on both counts. The noise of a 12 in a confined space is painful. The muzzle brakes will make it worse and the Barrett brake will be loudest as it is directed back.

Thank you, that's all I need to know... I know a Shotgun is gonna be loud anyway but I have severe tinnitus (ringing ears) so that info alone will cause me to go with the 50772. Thanks!

Both those pistol grip models may look cool, but they can cause serious wrist pain with just a few shots fired. Go with a traditional stock model like the 50772 and you will get a better to use in any situation gun.

I'm in the regular stock crowd myself. Whatever advantage a pistol grip may afford you in a very specific circumstance, simply is not enough for me when you look at the disadvantages.
