    Never cleaned mine and it gets abused with the dirtiest lead shot I can find at the cheapest price.

    Well mate ,I have the pump action and can only agree with 7mm on this one,cheap enough for sure,but why spend the money,when a little more will get you a lot more.For many years Mossbergs,were considered shit investments,introductory guns for the uninitiated,something of a throw away,but they have changed for the better over the years.

    The mossberg 500,or the Mossberg Silver reserve (that I just purchased) I believe is a better value for money,if you go down that road.Not expensive,good quality for the bucks,and they both cone with a plethora of chokes,the silver comes with 5.The 28 in barrel here,might be the killer here,as it seems you want a shorter barrel (correct me if I'm mistaken)?Something to think about.

    Another fine choice over the mossberg,the Remington 870,mate,these bloody things last forever,with no issues.My boys have them,synthetic stocks,there is not much to say about their durability other than the buggars can take huge amounts of abuse.
