I've read that the Mossberg 500 and Remington 870 express are essentially the same thing in regards to quality.

Looking at something like this:

Thoughts?
No. Mossy 500's are crap, and anyone that says otherwise...

Remington 870, Beneli Nova/Super are both great pump's for low price. Remi has a ton of modding options.

In all seriousness though, based on what you need, 870 Wingmaster cut down or an 870 tactical/police is where it's at. I hate mossbergs

Hey, got a question on my 870 (don't want to clutter forum with another thread). I have an express that should hold 6 rounds, but I'm having trouble fitting more than three in the tube - what gives?? Is the spring binding??

I know nothing about shotguns, except to shoot birdshot at birds, buck/slugs at baddies.

Which model do you have? Sounds like you may have the second option below..

870 Express Synthetic Seven-Round – Weatherproof black synthetic stock. 18" fixed-cylinder-choke barrel with a single-bead front sight. Magazine holds six 2-3/4" or 3" shells and one in the chamber for seven-shot capacity. Molded-in sling swivel studs.

870 Express Synthetic 18" – An ideal 12-gauge utility gun featuring an 18" fixed-cylinder-choke barrel, single-bead front sight, nonglare matte finish and a magazine that holds three 3" shells or four 2-3/4" shells. This model is intended for personal use and will not accept law-enforcement accessories.

870 Express Tactical – The No. 1 choice of law enforcement agencies across the country. Quick-pointing 18-1/2" barrels with an extended ported Tactical Rem™ Chokes. Magazines hold seven rounds of 2-3/4" or 3" shells with a factory-installed two-shot extension. Black synthetic stocks and forends with sling swivel studs. Receivers are drilled and tapped. The blasted black-oxide model has an XS® Ghost Ring rear sight and XS blade front sight along with an XS Ghost Ring sight rail for optics and sight systems. The gunmetal-gray powder-coated model has a single-bead front sight.

870 Express Tactical Blackhawk! Spec Ops – The seven-position tactical stock adjusts the length of the shotgun to fit the situation and the shooter. It’s outfitted with a recoil-reduction system and a SuperCell recoil pad for fast follow-up shots. The enhanced pistol grip improves control. Sling mounts can be removed or configured for right- and left-handed shooters. Receiver is drilled and tapped to accept optics. 6+1 capacity using 2-3/4" or 3" shells.

There's a stop in the tube that prevents you from loading more than three rounds in there because many hunting laws prevent you from hunting with more than 3 rounds in the gun. You can take the stop out but that would make your shotgun illegal to hunt with.

Ahhhh, that would explain it. I'm not much of a hunter - not really in my blood. I'll fuck around and get that stop taken out.

I'm at work on my phone, but the one I've got has the synthetic stock but the tube is as long as the 18" bbl. one of the few things I've purchased at a sporting goods store

During the calandar year of 2012 I have purchased 2 Mossberg shotguns, a 500 Field/Defense combo and the 2nd is a Silver Reserve II Sporting. Between the two, about 1k shells thru them, thus far, no issues. Both have been 100% reliable. Conversly; I know of two people who hate their Benelli shotguns and can't wait to get rid of them. It all comes down to personal experience. I would say, based on my experience, Mossberg makes a fine shotgun, and I would recommend them.

I have had zero issues with my 500 pistol grip.

As for accessories, an adjustable Blackhawk or Mesa Tactical stock is a must these days. They're very good for reducing recoil and adjusting LOP. A side-saddle shell carrier is a necessity, and I highly recommend a Mesa Tactical saddle setup.
For ammo, I'm a huge supporter of 00Buck. Given everything that I've seen for information, buckshot is the best option across the board for the shotgun. I prefer tactical loads like the Federal Tactical buckshot with Flite-control, but the Hornady TAP shotgun loads are high quality as well. You can put all pellets inside of a pie plate at 25yds.

I have the Maverick 88 which is basically the Mossberg 500, the only difference is that the Mossberg has the safety on the roof of the gun and the Maverick has it in front of the trigger group (which I prefer for quicker action). If you visit Calguns(dot)net you can find some great reviews in regards to the Maverick 88. Great HD shotgun, 20" barrel, and holds 7+1 in the chamber. I picked mine up from Big 5 about 3 months ago on sale for $199. GL OP.

I have a 7+1 and I have a 2 shot in the chamber, next one up is the same, and the other six are slugs. The reason why I went with 2 shot is that it wont penetrate "as much" as higher shots (7, 8) through the walls of your home. One thing to consider (if you live in a suburban area) is making sure your ammo doesn't go through the wall and accidentally injuring a neighbor or even causing a fatal accident.
