    I bought a new Mossberg 930 SPX today. My 13 year old grandson and I put it through its paces with about 50 round of everything from slugs and buckshot to birdshot.

    It ran flawlessly throughout. I love this weapon. My head told me to get another pump, but lust drove me to the purchase.

    I have absolutely no regret. It has none of the problems about which I've read, and I'm quite pleased.

    Good for you. Mine is a couple months old and it also has no problems many others have reported about. Round count is over 700 shells so far.

    My 930 SPX has been and continues to be 100% reliable. It loves both 00 buck and 1 oz slugs and will eat all the Wal-Mart low brass, 100 shell value packs I can feed her.

    I have had my 930SPX for 2 1/2 years and it has been 100% reliable. I love the ghost ring sight and the way it handles. It is a very easy weapon to clean and maintain. A great tactical shotgun and IMHO the best bang for your buck. Good luck and enjoy it.

    There's no doubt, that the 930 SPX is a fine weapon.

    HOWEVER, the smile on my Grandson's face as he and I shot together was more than enough to establish its value in my life.

    There are some things one cannot explain!

    I'll be hanging on to this shotgun.

    As exactly my esteemed colleuge Frank said , my M930SPX loves it some 00 Buck and can handle slugs to be a sniper shotgun or death delivery blacktical boomstick , but it eats such a steady diet of Walmart sale priced Federal Champion 100 rd value pack 7.5 birdshot 'target load rounds ' with veritable impunity. You cant stop this Bad Mother a trucker it just keeps going like that battery bunny.

    Best firearm money I've spent , what I would grabif the dog Sounds his puppy siren in the middle of the night and $h!! Was on - and looms large and in charge ie looks awesome!

    I have a Mossberg 930 SPX. I am very frustrated with it, the shotgun is very low quality and the bolt assembly was rusted on the inside when I bought it (brand new). I tried contacting customer service and they never responded, I even offered to pay for the replacment parts. The shotgun looks nice on the outside when you buy it but when you take it apart for cleaning the inside is all scratched up and the finish isn’t very good. The website also lies about the shotgun, they claim it is an 8 shot being 7+1 but in reality the shotgun only loads 6+1 but if you do load up 6 rounds the last round will not feed properly. When you see the Mossberg 930 SPX know it is a low quality 5+1 with no customer service. It does shoot good though with low recoil but all things considered I will have to get rid of it.


    one of thousands i could post....





    Stay safe!

    AGAIN, do I need to dig up the PMs you sent me begging for info on how to get an M930SPX in NJ? In how you begged to be let in on how I got one in NJ , you're being told they're not NJ legal and can't find a way to get one ?
    fact : YOU WANTED ONE BAD and another fact : NOW YOU'RE ACTING COOL and like the anti 930SPX TROll Cause you had to spend like $2000 for an M4 to feel cool , you could have a more expensive exclusive shotgun than me ?


    Funny just a short while ago you sent me another PM inviting me to join You on another forum ? Don't remember calling me your " NJ broski" ? Now you're too cool.

    One of the thousands, riiiight. You are acting like a troll, an anti Mossberg 930 troll. How about going elsewhere and act like a jackass. It's obvious you have an ax to grind, just do it elsewhere.


    Scrappy, time to post them to show everyone what a troll he really is.

    Title : "930spx"
    ,msg : "i live in jersey as well how did you get a jersey legal spx 930?"


    I respond to his unsolicited msg "
    According to mossberg and SP I am the only one who has one in NJ.

    long story someone screwed up sellling to to me, I didnt know it was not allowed I was new. I got it and found out and had to have a new mag tube made for it.

    got lucky, supposdedly the SP is cracking down on guns not jersey legal going to gunsmiths in NJ that will make them legal. Supposedly they cant even have it if its not in proper configuration, its something the AG wants to start bustin.

    i just got lucky i guess.


    Then on 7-11-2010 at 10:00 he replies to me:
    "i mean id like to have that model but the other 930s are the exact same thing just not the options of the spx and I don't want to buy the 930 to pay more for what the spx has sigh.. oh well maybe ill get lucky "

    To which I didn't respond because I mean - wait I want the BMW top of the line model with all the options but i DOMT want to pay for it ! It's the same as the entry level BMW! it just doesn't have the same upgraded stuff !! I mean how are you supposed to respond to such flawed logIc ?

    And he is telling me how I'm a broke joker for "scraping together $299 for a moss berg semi pos" I nelieve not even new M500's are that cheap? Mime was like 700 because , they were so hot on the market and so limited that if you found one you paid the price because that was how you could grt one. So what is it , I have a cheap POS or one you couldn't convince yourself to pay the price for because in your own words you didn't want to have to pay for the gun you wanted , the one I have you don't and now you're suddenly a troll for against them. The truth hurts but it shall set you free.

    All I can say is that mine is reliable, fast, and smooth. The sights are straight, and the trigger group is good.

    I completely broke it down for cleaning, and there is not a spot of rust, and not one problem that I can find. My 930 holds 7 rounds in the tube, and one in the chamber...as advertised.

    I'm sorry that some have had problems: I'm a happy camper.

    And I would bet that you tried some inexpensive 2-3/4" Rio royal buck ammo in 00B to make this statement. Rio makes some of the longest shells on the market. Remember the RIO shell in the pic is NOT a magnum shell, it is not a 3" shell.

    This picture shows the "unfired" length of five different 2-3/4" shells. My 930SPX is an 8 shot firearm just like the manufacture states, my magazine tube is capable of holding 7 shells. Know your ammo and learn your gun.

    YUP I actually had the nice people of Choate make me a +1 mag extension so I could throw out the factory omstalled choate +3 and be Jersey legal. I was absolutely getting 7+1 to start oit ghost loading an extra to 9. NOW I am definitely 5+1 ghost loading an extra is no problem ZAND BEST PART is mg favorite round also the BEST round Hornady TAP FPD 00 BUCK is a little microminimeasure smaller so I can actually grt 6 in the tube , one in the chamber , at the PA Range if I ghost loadd it I got 8 rounds of 12 Gauge Hornady TAP FPD and I am EXTREMELY HAPPY.

    And mostof the 930 SPX people on here are. I suspect the pictures and privtr messages won't be enough evidence for our friend however. Sometime fhe best way to convince someone of their errors is to let them have it their own way. People only know what they only know.

    Sorry to hear about your 930 SPX but Mossberg is not lying when they say 7+1 I&#8217;ve been loading 8 shells from day one, 9 if you want to ghost load the 9th shell. If you want to know how to get your gun to load 7+1 all you have to do is ask and we would help. But to post ( Really is some idiot kid posting this?) is not going to help with your situation.

    I'm another very happy 930SPX owner. No rust anywhere, feeds everything I've thrown at it, Ghost load gets you 9 rnds on tap. over 2000 rnds without a hiccup of any kind. Extremely soft shooter and very fast. Whats not to love.
