    not the fanciest, and not as many parts and accessories for it as the Rem 870, but they are fine, reliable, simple, and easy to take down and clean. I really miss mine. It was a 500 12 gauge. I saw an o/u mossberg at Wal-Mart, and I really thought it was pretty sweet looking, would love to see how it shoots.

    Thinking of getting a Mossberg 590A1 12 gauge.
    For a long time it was a toss up between that and
    a Remington 870. I think Mossberg is in the lead.

    mossberg is aluminum
    remington is steel

    mossberg ambi top safety
    remington r handed trigger tang safety

    mossberg cheaper

    aftermarket parts
    remington has more variety, slight advantage
    mossberg has plents of options

    mossberg offers a blackpowder barrel for hunting conversion (haven't heard of anyone actually using it)

    my preference... mossberg

    personal choice got some bad remington ammo once, and am pissed at them

    and mossberg shotguns are approved and used by US military, that is a pretty strong endorsement

    BOTH ARE GOOD GUNS, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED BY EITHER ONE

    ive got a 590A1 and a 835. i like em waaaay better than the remingyon 870. i prefer the tang mounted safety for a shotgun. the controls for me are more ergonomic than the 870. if you damage one beyound repair they are cheap enough to get a new one and not worry about it.


    both my mossbergs after about the first 300 rounds run like a greased up naked deaf guy being chased in a pharmacy...

    I love my Mossberg 88. Have put 150 shells thru it so far. Flawless! Great HD weapon.

    I had a 500 for years and it was a great shotgun. I sold it and now have this Mossberg 9200 Zombie Slayer. Ten rounds of Zombie slaying goodness in a semiauto. ;)

    Have a 500 that I got at Cabelas. Works great, slaps me in the face every time I shoot it.

    Drugan- no, you cannot buy a gun directly from the manufacturer. Federal law requires that firearms be transferred thru a Dealer that has a Federal Firearms License. Been that way since 1968.

    Where you been?

    I was getting ready to start screaming "Blasphemy!!!"
    Really they may not be the best out there, but I loved mine, it did what it was supposed to do, and IMHO it may just be the best for the money.

    :p I had to say it since there has been a lot of talk about them lately.

    I do agree, they are affordable, reliable, easy to work on, and i do like how quick i can switch barrels out. I do recommend them to others.

    As far as pump guns I prefer the Remington 870 Standard models. But I have had a few Mossberg Shotguns in the 500 Series and there is not a thing wrong with them. I do own a Mossberg Semi-Auto 930 Turkey Shotgun in the complete camo version with an EOTech 512 Sight on it which is great for Turkey hunting. And it is a fine shotgun.
