Discuss and review the most versatile firearm available.

On the Remington 870, some barrels come with a cantilevered scope mount and others do not. You will have to add a sadle to the ones that do not. Not sure if that makes a real difference, but you might want to review those options before you buy.

I bought the 20ga version with the cheaper engineered wood versus real wood. Great gun for all sorts of hunting and sport.

Simmonds0307, I carried & traind LEOs on the REM 870 for 20+ years and they are super reliable. Many had 40k rounds through them.

Oddly, I now have a couple Moss 500s and they are about the same. One is a 7+1 Cyl Bore, Duty Type.

The other came with the MOSS 'turkey barrel' [20 inch vent-rib barrel with double sights and an 'extra-full' Accu-Choke] in addition to the other 3.

It also came with a 24 inch slug barrel with rifle sights.

All of it came with a Camo finish and takes 3 in shells for turkey.

It didn't cost much. Mine is all synthetic and has been through thousands of rounds without a hiccup.

Have one of these that's been in the family for quite awhile and it's dropped dozens of ducks and geese. Also took it to the range last year and put at least 100 rounds through it at clays; me and some of my co-workers were able to dominate with this gun versus some of the over/unders.
