    You really want a 7 shot capacity shotgun?

    For some odd reason GC reckon their 20"

    is 5+1 Perhaps Mossberg measure capacity by the shortest cartridges.

    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    I want the 18.5in barrel which is 5+1
    The 20in model is 7+1 (or 9 2 3/4).
    Gun city doesn't have any on stock, I know is on their Web site but actually not in stock.

    The ones GC had were altered to be legal. As GC are the importer of Mossberg you would be best ringing one of their shops.

    I am told that there is a shipment coming but not sure when

    Ah. thanks for that.I was not aware that they were an "Agent" That clarifies some puzzlement I had with their 20 inches capacity.

    Reached out to a guy I know at wgtn branch . @ a mth give or take with customs and the permits circus.

    Its a situation all importers are getting . Stock gets there when it gets there . Thats why no one will give firm dates until they actually get the email from customs that your shipment has been released for delivery.

    Yep, been hunting around for same 18.5”, even a 500.
    Serious said there was a big shipment waiting to leave the states etc.
    By default Mossberg website states 6+1 for the 18.5” but that’s using 2 3/4” but they hold 5+1 in 3” so it complies.

    I just want a replacement shotty botty!!!!

    Wills Outfitters in Kumeu had a new 590A1 on the wall last week, priced at $1425
    His number is 09-444 0023.
    Every time something really bad happens people cry out for safety, and the government answers by taking rights away from good people.

    The very uninformed person on the phone said
    Is an ilegal firearm and I'm not allowed to buy it.
    He wasn't very helpful.

    Yeah, I called this morning. They can easily have it modified.
    But I'm not arguing, waste of time. Better to give my money to someone who who wants it!
