    Are these two the best choices when it comes to pump shotguns?

    Which do you prefer and why?

    Both are mostly at par, by most accounts. Both have proven to be tough enough for military use. Roughly same price.
    Though there are some small things that might sway the choice for one over the other. They say the Remington has more aftermarket accessories available. One feature many LEO's like about the Mossberg is you can unload the magazine without having to rack the slide to eject each round. You can push on the lever holding the rounds in the magazine in place and just remove each round by hand. Can you do this with the 870?
    Racking the 12 gauge rounds through the extractor/ ejector can damage the plastic rounds.

    Sayang nga Doc.

    I'm also thinking of getting a shotgun and same as you jun, i've narrowed it down to these 2 models. The only reason i'm leaning towards the mossberg is that its safety is ambidextrous, important for a lefty like me. :)

    Then as usual, i will have to modify it to look something like this. :supergrin:

    The six shot mossberg 590 sells for about 37k at twin pines.

    How much is the remington 870 here?

    brod,

    pump or auto?

    the best choice would be shotguns that work on semi-auto and pump.
    Benelli has models that work on both systems but they are expensive, about 90k for the benelli m3 s90, and a bit heavier.

    if you want the reliability of a revolver, a pump shotgun is the wise choice. plus, these are on the more affordable side.

    but then again, today's autoloading shotguns are probably as reliable as semi-auto pistols now.

    it will just boil down to personal preference.

    me, i think the mossberg 590a1 would be the best choice out there. Eight (8) plus 1 capacity, ghost ring sights, and a pistol grip would be a good set up.
