I myself am a true mossberg 500 guy. just like to hear some different opinions
Dept issue and I love the gun it shoots good. Buckshot and slugs at 50 yds right on without scope and its easy to mount flashlights lasers and other mods I love it and wouldnt give it up if I had too..:big_smile:
Rem 870, I've had recurring quality issues. Plus the balance, to me, seems like it's muzzle heavy enough to use it on a tripod.
Mossberg 500, good quality, rugged, dependable and, to me, has good balance.
Mossberg 835, same as the 500 plus able to shoot 3½" shells.
i think its a personality type thing. if your wearing white tennis shoes, plaid pants and walk around swingin a golf club, your likely to go for th remington.:smile2: if your a no nonsense get out u my face type guy that wants a good relieable gun that can take some abuse then itll be a mossberg.:big_smile::cool2:
I dont think you could go wrong with either one
I'll pretend i didnt' hear this. I dont own white tennis shoes, plaid pants or a single golf club.
My 870 has, however, been used as a boat paddle more than once. Its a fun feeling to break your shotgun down at the end of the year for a thorough cleaning only to find marsh grass inside:crazy:.
I think that they are both great pump shotguns. I think that the Mossberg
500 was the reason Remington started making the 870 express. They were loosing to much business. I have always heard that the military were testing
pump shotguns for military use. Both the 500 and the 870 had 1000 rounds
fired through them in one day and no misfires or jams. The only pump guns
that did that.
Mossberg got the military contract because price. This was pre-express and
the wingmaster was more expensive.
This is where the mossberg model 590 military& police came from.
I agree with this post. Both great guns.
i own both and never use my REM 870 my mossberg 500 and 835 are my favorite out of the two....actually my mossberg turkey gun out patterns my benelli at 40 - 50 yards.
I'm afriad that I have to dissagree on this one, I'm none of those things listed above and own an 870 and I'm one of the most no nonsense guys alive. No offense taken though:wink:
Even though I don't have the white tennis shoes, plaid pants or even a golf club, I do own a Remington 870 Wingmaster. I'm not knocking the Mossbergs as I have never owned one. Just voting in the poll and that's my choice.
As I own both 870 s and 500 plus several other pumps , does that mean I can only ware my plaid pants when I carry one of the 870s? What should i ware carrying a browning or benelli?
Either one will serve one will as they have passed the test of time.
I wasn't even going to mention that I own a few Brownings as well until you brought it up. I thought I'd be shopping for the plaid pants for sure in the morning.:crazy:
I dont own an 870,but I do own an older Ithica 12 ga,and a Browning auto 5, 20 ga , I have two mossbergs,one in .410 and another in 20,I hope my next purchase is an 835.:wink: ohh I almost forgot I do have a Remington,Its a model 11 ,aside from a broken mainspring,no problems in over oh I think 10,000 rounds would be conservative. It was my granddads before the Auto 5,now I've inherited both.That said I believe both are great shotguns. One fits all in the budget dept tho.:wink:
I have an 870, greatest shotgun I ever shot. Other folks talk about their shotguns, and I'm ok with that, I like my 870. I have another 12 ga its either a mossberg or a savage, not sure, it has been modified for use indoors. Purchased used and cheap, quite reliable,
I've shot both but own only Mossberg. I have three actually 500 12ga, 590 12ga and 500 410ga. My mom bought me the 500 12ga when I was 15 years old.
i love my 870 with the slug barrel i have can hit a paper plate with a red dot almost every time with open sights am i am 57 and not as steady as i once was just my 2 cents
i shoot both models and love them. i have abused the living hell out of both of them with no consequences. they do point a little different, but i am lethal with either one. i take my 870s out more though.
gotta love them 500's
