Wipe it off and don't put dings that go through the finish on it. And don't get some bore cleaners, or naptha, MEK, or lacquer thinner on it. It's polyurethane.

I wouldn't swap a Mossberg 500 or an 870 Express even for a 1400. The 1400 guy would have to pony up some bucks.

Well if that 1940's Auto 5 is a relic I hate to think what a lot of other stuff is. You can shoot anything but steel or other hard non toxic loads out of your gun with no damage, including sabot...

Is Mossberg still making the barrels in Mexico? Doesn't matter to me but it sounds like it does to you.

I really don't care where anything is built. There is a worldwide truth. You cannot get an Impala or a Taurus (much less a Mercedes) for a Yugo price.
