    What is the main difference, pros/cons between the blued and matte finish on the mossberg barrels?

    I was wondering the same thing. I was also curious about the finish compared to the remington 870 Express models, I hear they are crap and rust way too easy,I'm hoping mossberg doesn't have that cheap of a finish.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluing_(steel) explains the blue finish and I don't believe there is much difference between that and the matte finish as far as corrosion proof. The marinecote is certainly more corrosion resistant than either of those two finishes. My 500 certainly holds up better to corrosion than my 870.
