Default Wanted: Remington 870 or Mossberg 500 **Found**

Looking at building a home defense shotgun. I will probably go new if no one has a decent used one for a good price. Please let me know if you have one laying around you want to get rid of.

I have a Maverick 88 $200 almost new.
A very nice 500 for $250
and the best of them all is a winchester speedpump 1300 $300
all are in very nice shape and fully funtional I can throw in some target shells to sweeten the deal as well.

I have a 870 express magnum, black with black synthetic stock. It has very little use. I would take $300 for it.

Last I checked you could pick up the Mav. 88s up at Walmart for under $200 new. They are very very similar to a Mossberg 500 and use the same stocks and such.

The problem I am having is I want a shortened barrel. I am looking at the 870 Tactical. Everyone seems to want around $300 for a used shotgun when I can buy a 870 Tactical for around $399. I may just have to pick up a new one, unless the right gun comes around.

You can change the barrel on almost any shotgun. I would try to find a gun then trade a barrel. Some gun shops will swap barrels for cheep too.

I've been told that they have cheaped out on many of the components of the 870 over the last 4 or 5 years. So I would be careful comparing prices of new guns to used ones.

I have heard some negative reviews but have had good luck with Remington products myself.

Could you post some pics of this gun? Does it have the 18" barrel? Do you have any way to ship it to my local FFL?

Mine goes bang every time, doesn't jam, hits where it's supposed to, takes apart easy as pie, and I like the safety on top of the receiver. I also stole it for $150 w/3 barrels. No complaints.

There's a time I'd have agreed 100%.

However with the cost-cutting on 870s (still a good value in a pump gun) I'd call them equal. Military did a lot of testing on pump guns and actually endorsed Mossberg.

Also look at a Win 1300 or a Benelli Nova.

I would still take the 870. With a little work they are the best for the cost.

can ship long guns within state door to door. No FFL needed.....

also I have an 870 that I would sell for $400.
It has a 20 inch rifle sights barrel with a factory Remington +2 extension, tactical light with strobe (maglite), 12LOP Hogue overmold stock set, sling. I also have a ventrib bird barrel and the factory wood stock set I will include (to make it more useful than just an HD gun)
if intersted, I can send some pictures

How old is it? That's a screaming good deal. I saw a ancient wingmaster with no finish and choate turd tactical stock set for 375 at the gun store last week.
