I like Remington 870's, winchester 1300's, and Browning pumps... Grew up with those three from grade school and all they've done is what they're supposed to do, and that is spit lead case after case after friggin case...

I've never had a Mossberg 500, but I hear so arguments and debates between it and an 870 that in my mind proves it to be a solid firearm..

At first I thought you were unnecessarily harsh. But then he asked about 870 vs. 500/590..... Now I agree with you.

The Winchester Super X Pump (SXP) Defender is a solid piece. While fairly new, it is making some quick inroads, worth a serious look.

+1 on the SXP Defender. While limited to the 5+1 capacity, it is a superb shotgun in my humble opinion. I've owned a Remington 870, 1100 and Winchester Model12, 1200, 1300 and the SXP. The Remingtons are gone (without regret) but the Winchesters will remain.

The same gun that was the best in 1951, the Remington 870.

I also really like the Mossbergs, but dont currently own one.

Keep it simple. Cheap OObuck and a Surefire light foreend is all you need. Leave all the Magpul and Blackhawk stuff on the shelves.

Mossberg V. Remington is Chevy V. Ford, both are fine. I went with Mossberg, I prefer the location of the safety... Ymmv

I have a Mossberg 500A. It has a TruGlo reflex red/green dot. It has a light on the other side of the rail you can't see. You can flick it Tactical Shotgunson as you grab for the pump. With the light and the TruGlo it is a great, no light/ low light set up IMO. Load it with buckshot and let it rip!

Wilson Combat Track Lock ghost rings (they have tritium inserts)
Surefire forend, or a MagPul forend with the light of your choice. There's also the newish EOTech forend, but I am not aware of its track record.

If you went with the 8-round side saddle, and a stock with ammunition storage (4-rounds, usually), you would get a total of 19 rounds on and in the gun. It will be as reliable as can be, and if you build yourself, it won't break the bank.
Only thing I would add would be a quality adjustable stock of some sort and this is me right here.

For me, it's going to be whichever one i can find locally. Everything is picked-over right now. Didn't expect a run on shotguns but I guess there is

Here is my Remington 870 Experess Magnum that I turned into a "tactical":
Tactical Shotguns

Note, that this is a photo that I took before I shortened the barrel from 21.5" to 18.5", put a Pachmayr slip-on rubber grip (with fingergrooves) on the pistol grip, and installed a Hogue rubber forend.

I LOVE this shotgun!

Yea I do agree with this but for me breaking down an 870 is easier maybe because I am already trained on doing it. Like Mossbergs just the same though.

exactly. the 870 is a fine shotgun. if that's what you learned with, it is as natural as using a pencil, or a fork.

what ever the op purchaces, i am asking him or her to learn with it. the way it works, fires, and operates. field stripping, slide release, safety, ....every detail of the shotgun you puchase. you will make us all very happy that way.

when you master yours (and only then), you can try firing the other make and model.

sound fair?

The 590a1 is the man! Dual extractors, double action bars, replaceable ejector, no feeding gate, parkerized finish, heavy duty barrel, metal trigger guard and safety..... Basically every beneficial thing you could want in a combat shotgun

I agree I went to gun show the weekend before Christmas to buy a 870 tactical I had been wanting one for some time. Went to my favorite dealer for shotguns and saw the Mossberg 590A1 Blackwater and walk out with it instead of the 870. It is built like a tank and has everything you need for HD gun.

But the basic 870 isn't "tacticool". It's reliable, decent price and readily available. Lotta aftermarket parts for it also.
+1

Just replace the Carrier Dog Follower and Sear Springs with that of the 870P type, Oversized safety and Steel Extractor and your all set.....

I bought my daughter a 870 youth model in 20 gauge. Very inexpensive, lightweight and manuverable. I can assure you 5 rounds of #3 or #4 in a home would be ugly and overpenetration shouldn't be an issue.

It's basic looking but I'll take proven reliabilty over "tacticool" anyday.
