  1. Shotgun Forum
    I have been looking into finally buying a 12 gauge pump. Ive determined that the Mossberg 500 is the one for me. I like the simplicity, reliability, and durability and Love the price. Im probably going to get the 28" and 18.5" barrel combo (around $315) so I will have a hunting barrel and...

    I just picked one of these up tonight. 12 gauge intended primarily for home defense. The owners manual that came with it is for all 870 series. I am trying to determine what would be a good hunting barrel for deer and small game/water fowl. I am still not sure if it's even possible to swap the...

    I own a Remington 870 Marine Magnum in the black XCS/Trinyte coating. I love it. I wanted to know if these Marine Magnums use the same internal components as the 870 Express, such as MIM (metal injection molding) parts: extractor, etc? I couldn't find any info anywhere on this topic. For an...

    Bought the shotgun at a pawn shop for $80 cash. Had to remove some light rust from the barrel. Purchased an ATI pistol grip for $15 NIP. grand total of $95. I looked up on mossberg's website and saw they are selling a cruiser for 350. I was quite pleased with my self.

I know it was made in the U.S. and now has been re-branded as the FN Police pump gun. 18-1/2" barrel. Aluminum alloy receiver. Rotating bolt action...

    Can anyone explain the differences? I plan on getting the A1 anyway, but I'd like to know. Obviously the heatshield in the first pic is a major difference but other than that...? There appear to be some slight cosmetic differences. I think the A1 may have a thicker barrel. Anything else? 590...

    Put a scope rail on my Mossberg 500A and mounted a BSA red dot. Even with the dot turned off it presents a great sight picture. You can see the bead perfectly with it off or on. Had it on an SKS before...it is better suited for this. Shoots a little high with it off but for close quarters it...

    I've got an older 870 Wingmaster built in 1954 and the slide will release without pushing the slide release button on the front of the trigger. Short of taking this gun to a gun smith, do any of you have any idea which parts should be replaced? I want to start with the action bar lock and the...

    For those of you one dial up, this is a side by side comparison of the remington 870 and the mossberg 590. Some of the differences include: Remington 870 has a choke - the mossberg does not remington 870 has a longer barrel mossberg 590 is drilled and tapped for a scope - remington 870 is not
