Thinking about buying one for home protection. Wanted to know if you guys had any info on them. Aside from the fact that they look mean.

Looked at the Mossberg tactical and wasn't impressed by the fit and finish. Now looking at the Remington 870.

Mossbergs aren'tpretty but they're inexpensive, durable, reliable and there is an almost confusing array of aftermarket accessories for them; special purpose barrels, tactical stocks, scope mounts, rail kits etc. etc. You could do a lot worse.

My Mossberg Persuader is dinged up and scratched but still works like a champ. Would recommend.

Save yourself the grief, and just get a Remington 870.

 

If you want home protection get the Remington 870 EXPRESS Tactical

 

Has good fit and finish, plus tons of aftermarket parts.

I liked the Mossberg for the affordability and I have seen so many accessories for it.

I think there's better bang for your buck out there. I'd probably search around for a deal on the guns you want.
