After weeks of searching the internet and the local gun shops...I finally found a Mossberg 930 SPX on the shelf of a gun store! Everywhere I went previously told me they could special order it but it always seemed to come out to over $700 not including the $25 background check. FFL transfers were all $50 if I had one shipped and I didnt feel like waiting a week or 2 for it.

I didn't get a screaming deal but at $695 out the door, I was instantly gratified and satisfied. I probably could have gotten it cheaper without the pistol grip but I was gonna order it later anyways.

I cant wait to take it out this weekend and break it in!:dancing:

Enjoy it. Make sure the front sight post is straight. Some have that issue. Mossberg fixes them but can be a pain from what I have heard.

I have the 930 SPX with the regular stock and it feels very good in my hands. Well balanced nice and light. I am running a USPSA shotgun match on Sunday. Tempted to run it at that but I think I will stick with the 590 for this match. 12 slugs and 100 bird shot. Those slugs would be softer in a gas gun though. Looking forward to the match.

I heard about the sights. I tried my best to see if the sights were off center while at the gun store but I couldnt tell? They looked fine to me. I guess I will see when I sight in on something this week end? Hopefully crooked sights are rare.

Again, great pick up. You'll enjoy it. I have the pistol grip too - feels great!

Congratulations on your new purchase. Love mine but it did not come with the pistol grip stock. I also sent you a PM.

I think these are the best bargain in semi-auto tactical shotguns right now. Good choice.

Very nice. I've been eyeballing these. My state doesn't allow pistol grips on semi auto shotguns :steamed:

Liberals always have a way of raining on my parade.

You are correct they are not easy to find and I agree with ronin.45, these are great bang-for-the-buck weapons. They are also very reliable, extremely fast shooting, more accurate than most realize (the adjustable sights are a real plus!) and minimal in recoil. In my opinion . . . an awesome package. I hope you enjoy!

After I bought it, I read that it won 2 shotgun of the year awards in 2009. The NRA's golden bullseye award and the The academy of shooting excellence's shotgun of the year.

Thats pretty cool to know.

I normally carry my shells upside down for easier/smoother loading. Do you folks do that too? Have you ever had shells fall out? I shoot the snot out of my pump and never had shells drop out of my cheap ATI saddle setup.

budsgunshop.com has them in stock for $631 delivered. Just FYI, that's the best I've seen other than trying to win a cheap bid on gunbroker.com

I have a 930 and it is great. But the best deal out there may be the Tri Star semi. A local dealer has them for $269 + tax. I know a few people whjo bought them and they run flawlessly (made on beretta dies).

I found that a 6 shell carrier works best. There didnt seem to be sufficient room for an 8. Since one is not made for this SG, i used an 870 tac star and attached with industrial velcro.

I've never been comfortable with the reciever mounted shell carriers. Can't they bind up the action? I put them on the stock.

But yes, I carry the rounds primer down. I would shoot for the 8 shot if it will fit.

I know I could have gotten one for about $50 cheaper at buds but my local gun shop had one actually on the shelf and even gave me a 20% LEO discount which covered taxes and background check.

So I got to take it home immediately vs waiting for shipping and paid just a few bucks less than the actual sticker price since they gave me an LEO discount. I was ok with that.

There's a favorable write-up in the Feb issue of "Guns & Weapons for Law Enforcement." They reviewed the standard stock model. I like pistol grips, but with the placement of the Mossy safety, the pistol grip can be a problem.

Great LEO discount. Didn't mean to make sound like you didn't get a good deal, just wanted to let other interested parties know where they have them in stock for a good price.

Enjoy it, I hope to have one soon, also!

It doesnt cut into my flesh at all like the tiny stock handle did. I love it even though its freakishly huge! It works for me.

I wouldn't run shell carriers on any of my weapons, adds to much bulk, would get snag on everything, they can fall out, especially in a scramble. I always used a vest or a dump pouch full of 00 myself. Keep it simple.
Take a tactical shotgun course too if you can. There is alot of technique to combat shotgunning believe it or not. By the way, looks like a fun gun.
