Mossberg Shotguns
« on: September 17, 2011, 10:41:22 PM »
Looking at buying a 12 gauge for waterfowling...

Like the price and selection of Mossberg firearms.

What does everyone think of the Mossberg 500 waterfowl and the Mossberg 535 ATS?

Any info is appreciated!!!

Both of my older boys shoot 500's and have for a few years now. I bought them both shotguns for Christmas a few years back. Although Mossberg definitely doesn't have the fancy fit and finish of some guns they do seem to hold up well. The boys aren't huge waterfowlers but I would say probably put a couple hundred shells a year through the guns over the last 7 or 8 years and so far no problems. My middle son has shot trap with his as well for the last 2 years with us and has had no issues. Personally I like the guns, for the price value I beleive they are hard to beat. You can buy one with confidence knowing it will work for years to come. Heck Mossberg has been in business for years and they wouldn't be if they made junk..

Of course this IMHO..

I have both, the 535 in 12ga and the 500 in 20.
They both perform as premium shotguns, for a lot less $$$$.
The 535 is a little light for any 3 1/2" loads IMO, kicks like a mule!  :)
I'd like to pick-up an after market set of choke tubes for the 535 as well, I believe I could ring out a little more Whoop a** from her!!
