I am in the mood for a kick ass shotgun. I have decided to follow the "2 is 1, 1 is none" program.

I have 3-.22LRs, 2 semi-auto handguns, and 1 pump 12G.

I may have a lead on a 870. I like these and the 590A1.

18" bbl 590a1 would be my choice. I had one and it's a super sturdy pump shotgun.

Cant go wrong with an 870 or a 590a1. I really like the safety on the Mossbergs.

I have an 870 and just bought a Mossy 500 and the safety is definitely better on the 500.

Pump 500 Mossy with a pistol grip.

Add Federal Tactical slugs and you've got a party!

I don't know what your current gun is. But...to match that HK, I'd say Benelli M4. Benelli, it';s the HK of Shotguns. Or, on the down low, if you already have a 500/870, a Maverick would not be a bad choice.

Get a Remington 870 or Mossberg pump. You can feed it anything there is without having to worry about jams or cycling issues that are more prone on the semi-auto models. Get an extended mag tube (my 870 is 7+1) and a nice strap (preferably one that holds shells), and you are good to go!

The location of the safety is the Mossberg's only advantage over an 870. Unfortunately, it also seems to be the part that breaks the most.

Oh, I have an old police Winchester 1300 Defender, complete with sunbleached wood on one side, and rack marks. It looks mint inside and the action is SMOOTH and FAST.

It's pretty cool.

Regarding the slide release lever location on 870. If You are actually train with your shotgun it won't be a problem - it's like muscle memory. Your finger will go there instantly. Safety location is in good place on 870 IMO, but some people are unhappy with it. Probably the worst thing You can do is to constantly switch between the platform as it may create some confusion when You will need it the most. Otherwise between 500 and 870 You really can't go wrong. Winchester and Ithaca are also worth to look at.

And the elevator is a better design too.
And it's lighter.
And the aluminum receiver won't rust.

Arguably, the captive mag tube cap is a better design too, since you can't lose it, though it prevents you from installing an extension.

The M500 is a fighting shotgun that can hunt and bust clays, the 870 is a duck gun that can fight.

God forbid you should ever have to use your HD shotty, but the BG won't care if it's the latest and greatest tacti"cool" bla bla bla. Or a 47yo recently restored high standard, or an 83yo model 11. Just saying doesn't matter much what delivers the payload as much as how well the end user knows how to send it.

Remington 870. I own several 870s.

Preferably a Wingmaster or 870P.

I've owned Mossbergs, and I don't like 'em. I had a problem with the disconnect, that even Mossberg couldn't fix.
No thanks. IF I need a shotgun to go 'bang', I can't rely on Mossberg.
I recently sold a Mossberg that I had won in a raffle. (Never even took it out of the box!)


Give me a Remington, any day!!

Recently purchased an 870 for home defense.So far have added mag tube extension and a sling, it came with a shell holder on the receiver. Waiting for a mount for my Streamlight TLR1, not sure that I need to go any further than that.

The M500 is a fighting shotgun that can hunt and bust clays, the 870 is a duck gun that can fight.

Nice...
Both are good guns, so there is no reason to let the emotions overcome the logic. This is beginning to sound like a 9mm vs .45 ACP debate.
Well, can You think of any alloy framed firearm that lasts as long as the steel counterpart?
I can't.
Aluminum doesn't rust?
As in doesn't produce iron oxide because there is no iron in it?
I'll buy that.
However it corrodes, especially fast in acids and alkalies.
Get a corrosive agent, inside at uncoated wear areas and see what happens.
Plus there is a lot of steel parts in Mossberg as well, so either one will rust eventually if the owner doesn't take care of it.
Bottom line is that 870 is the standard against which all other pumpguns are measured.
You may like one over the other, and it is the decisive factor really.
However, there is like 10th millions 870's out there.
For a reason.
That's compared to about 4 million Mossbergs, 2 million Ithacas and 3 million Winchesters.
The reasons include durability.
Working life for 870 seems to be around 250K rounds.
The Mossberg 500 runs at maybe 65K.
I think that we should be clear on this, yet 65K is probably equal to several generations of hunting and home protection users.
Another reason is reliability. 870s just plain keep on working.
And there's the modular design thing as well.
No pumpgun is easier to detail strip and deep clean than 870 is.
The 870 is smoother, and points better for most.
Probably that's why it's far more popular with the police departments across the continent. It will last longer than 500 while working as reliable.
With all that said, if all I had was a Mossberg pump, I'd still be well armed....but as was already mentioned - any older Wingmaster in decent condition is a very smart choice.

Not tacticool at all, but I love my old Winchester 1200! I like the Mossbergs as well.

My experience with the 870 is limited to the one I was issued at my last department. Decemt gun, but didn't fit me at all. Despite being 6'3" the LOP was too long for my liking (especially with a vest on) and I hated the rifle sights. It felt very awkward and unwieldy to me. I never took it out of the case after the academy. Anytime I needed a long gun I took my AR. Nothing wrong with 870s, the one I was issued just didn't fit me.

For autoloaders, the Benelli M4 is awesome. I got to shoot one a while back and absolutely fell in love with it. :cool:

I agree. It's also a disadvantage if you put a pistol grip stock on it.

I've got a Benelli M2 with a 24 inch barrel for turkey, phesant, and quail and an 18 inch barrel and four round magazine extension I can put on it for HD. Bought a steady grip pistol stock but found I don't really like it.

Having a shotgun that does double duty is a plus especially if you like to hunt or shoot clays. Problem with the Benelli though is a barrel can run about $400even used. Got my 18 inch rifle sighted barrel for $200 a couple years ago.

Remington 1200 has been mentioned. Great gun.

Yeah, I think Saigas look cool and all, but I actually prefer the tube magazine for a tactical shotgun.. also I think the saiga is just overall large and bulky compared to the 930..

The only shotgun I own is a Browning Silver Hunter. It is a semiautomatic sports shotgun meant for hunting and clay pidgeons. I do the latter, not much into hunting.

I've had a Winchester Defender, Mossberg 590, and currently a Remington 870 Police Magnum. I can say that any of these three are excellent shotguns for SD. Sometimes, these decisions are a matter of timing, and what comes along at the right time for the purchase to be made.


This is my Remington 870 Police Magnum. I like it, but I'd be just as happy to have either the Mossberg 590, or the Winchester 1200 Defender back...........

Modifications: 6 rd sidesaddle, sling, Wingmaster forearm altered to fit the sidesaddle, rifle sights, 18" cylinder bore barrel, oversized safety.

And here I thought that you wanted a real kick-ass shotgun...

When I was a younger man living in Georgia, a cop that I knew kept an Ithaca 10 gauge "Roadblocker" with a 20-inch barrel in his squad car. Said he never had to use it, 'cause the perp's eyes would get the same diameter as the bore just a soon as he leveled it on them!!

Very tacticool, but if you are going to extend the barrel out that far, you can afford to extend the magazine and add 2-3 extra rounds.

...oh, wait, no you can't because it's a Mossberg.:tongueout:

There is no amount of black tacticool stuff that you can put on a Mossberg to make it as cool as hogship's 870, above. I'd love to have an 18" rifle sight barrel.

Mossberg 930SPX or the 870. I actually bought one of each for a great price a local gunshow recently. We went to the range to shoot them the same day. We both put @5 rounds through the 870. The other @60 we shot through the 930. Amazing weapon, my first semi-auto shotgun. I think I'm in love.

Mine was one that someone "built". It has the Choate stock, long tube, a mag clamp with sling swivel, improvised "gutter/channel" style rear sight/rail (ala the tactical 870 with the Rem choke), front bead, and as I like to call it the "juicer" barrel. The points on the muzzle break/comp are so sharp that you could actually hear them tearing the inside of the shotgun scabbard I put it in, so I have to bungee cord a spare nylon holster to it when I use the scabbard. By far the coolest shotgun I've ever owned, only because I haven't built my AOW 870 yet:) Still want a Saiga, not to mention the Mossberg with the Knoxx Sidewinder kit, and....

Where does it end?:)

I have an 870. I love the steel receiver, and how easy it is to take completely apart. The gun balances well for me, and I shoot it better that most other shotguns I've tried.

That being said, I love the control lay out on a Mossberg 590. I'm going to buy a 590a1 with ghost ring sights this year for shooting slugs at the range and home defense.

Personally, I wouldn't feel short changed with either gun, and I don't think there is a "wrong" choice between the two. I obviously couldn't decide between them :rofl:

01-11-2012, 18:16
Both great guns in my limited experience. The only reason I went with the 870 was because I wanted a Knoxx recoil reducing stock, and folks said that didnt work well with the Mossy saftey located where it is. Made sense to me, I like my 870.

Those Ithaca Roadblocker 10 Gauge autos are "old school" cool, but man they weight a TON! I bet it weighs more empty than an extended mag 870 fully loaded and all tricked out with a side saddle. Seems like it did anyway.

There's someone on here that posted a pic of his Mossy 590SPX with the heat shield that is one of the coolest looking shotguns I have ever seen. Maybe he'll chime in and post the pic.

on a more serious note. I have two Remington 1100s which are awesome hunting and target shotguns. But my next shotgun is definitely going to be the Keltec KSG. I wonder if the initials stand for Kickass Shot Gun?

Seems like Keltec is the most innovative gun maker of recent years. Both of mine (Sub2K and PF9) have performed flawlessly for me.

I'm partial to Mossbergs, and while I've never seen the safety on one break, all of mine are metal. I've owned several 590's and 590A1's, and 500's, and currently own several including the 590 and 590A1. I also have some 7" bbl modified, which are more novel than practical.

Benelli makes a great shotgun. I haven't tried the 930 yet, but plan to.

The 500 series Mossbergs work fine for me. I've seen more of those in service in the field than anything else. We used to be issued 870's, and those are fine; I've owned a few Remingtons, and have no complaints, but I do like the Mossbergs.

For home use, a basic 12 gauge with an 18" bbl will solve most of your biggest problems, and it's a good compromise for field work.

A 14" home use shotgun is ideal, where one is able.
