I want to get something like my dad has. A remmy 870 express magnum. Syth stock, mag extension. Shorter barrel.
Doesnt look too bad. Definately good for narrow hallways and alot of turns
Way overpriced. A Mossberg 500 can be had for under $200. If it's for home defense don't worry about whether the stock is wood or synthetic. Pistol grips suck on shotguns. The standard stock should be fine. If you're going to pay more than $200 get a persuader with an 8 shot mag tube.
Seriously. I bought mine for 226 out the door. That's starting to be 590 territory.
590s go on sale at Big 5 for $325 around here all the time. I'd get one but I'm really not a shotgun fan. One is enough for me.
Yes, way overpriced for a 500. I'd also recommend a stock, opposed to popular belief, when you shoot a shotgun the pellets don't hit everything in a 5 foot area you aim at, you do have to aim them Also keep an eye on Big5 for shotgun deals, they regularly have regular synthetic 500's with short and long barels, as well as the 8 shot 20" models for great deals.
BTW, I'm not saying Mossbergs are the only way to go, I shoot an 870P, but you really can't go wrong with either.
it'de be fine for home defense but as has been said that one is way overpriced, they have them for about $200 otd at a local shop.
I have a Mossy 500. I have both an 18.5" and 28" barrel. I keep the shorter barrel on it when it's in my house for the obvious reasons. My shotgun also came with a pistol grip, but I keep the stock on it.
If you plan on shooting something heavy like 00 Buckshot, you'll appreciate having the stock because it recoils like a mother with a heavy load.
My shotgun in action with the pistol grip attached... not the easiest to aim. I hit the target which was around 20-25 feet away but in tense situations, having a stock will greatly benefit you.
Just get a Serbu. Pricey, but as hell.
Well I'm not a huge fan of the pump shotgun for home defense but for a budget it works well. Pistol grips however, do not. Buy the whole gun (including the whole stock) now with whatever you buy. If you want a pump shotgun hit up your local gun store and look at used pumps. Even if you spend $100 and get a cheap beat up one I bet it'll work perfectly.
Do you need an nfa exemption to own that? Like with silencers or is that considered a pistol?
If you want a pistol grip, get a pistol grip/shoulder stock combo.
I'd recommend the Mossberg 500 Field/Security Combo. Comes with a pump 500, 18.5" barrel, 28" barrel, 3 chokes, and a pistol grip kit. Item #54619, I believe.
Kinda hard to find, but I got mine for ~$250 and I love it.
That muzzle break looks pretty sick though
Pretty simple accessory... Just buy one yourself. http://www.popguns.com/shotgunaccessories/atimiscaccessories.htm
But it's not all spikey and tactical at the end.
