Since 1919, Mossberg has been the leader in introducing important design breakthroughs to the firearm industry. Many product features pioneered by Mossberg are now the standards by which all modern shotguns and firearms are judged. Mossberg's design and innovative edge is truly changing the way shooters use shotguns and rifles. Mossberg pump shotguns are the only shotguns purchased by the United States government that meet or exceed Mil-S-3443 specifications. It is this basis of unquestionable quality that drives Mossberg to bring reliable, well-built shooting systems to you at an affordable price.
This was my first Mossberg, and I am very happy with this weapon. It was reasonbly priced, a very good value. It shoots very well. Although the recoil is in-line with all 12 gauges, the recoil pad and the ported barrel make this powerful weapon, quite tame. I am a satisfied owner who will be looking to the Mossberg brand for any of my future shotgun desires. Looking for a quality, well built, beautifully crafted shotgun, you will be hard pressed to find a better bang for the buck!!! Thank you O.F. Mossberg Co. for a wonderful package. This weapon is also very easy to accessorize as well. I also purchased an extra barrel in 18.5" as well as a folding stock pistol grip for when I use it as a security weapon. Great gun!!! Even better VALUE!!!! - T. L.
