As only theorethician of course, but I think it is simply better construction than Remington 870, on with in-game 12ga pump-action shotgun is based (but by all means I don't say, that 870 is bad). But I'm aware that in practise, in-game, there wouldn't be any noticable difference between already present gun, and the new one aside of details of the 3d model and textures. So I can live without Mossberg I guess. ;)

I've had both and currently have a Mossberg 500 *** 3" <-(LOL - that's the Wild Turkey Federation Magnum version but can't say it properly in case you wondered about the stars-it's a short, collapsable stock, RealTree camo with vent rib and ported barrel with special steel shot turkey choke, really tight and will hurt you with 3") Personally, quality, tolerances the Wingmaster wins. The 500 is more like an AK47 compared to a M4, loser, forgiving but flat out performs. I think you could drop a 500 in wet sand, bang it against a tree and shake the sand out with the first shot and it would still cycle great! just like an AK would. One of my buddies shot a Mossberg while I always had autoloaders and we filled 100's of 30gal barrels with empty casings shooting clays summer after summer, we had 3 progressive reloaders going all week just to prepare for a weekend with friends. We got to buying our pigeons by the pallet and powder by the keg :lol: ~ My buddy never took care of anything, he bought it, used it till it broke and bought another one. I can't even guess but well past 10 or 15 thousand rounds at least and i did replace a few parts now and then on it for him, little clips on the slide and a slide once- it was a tough gun and for it's price point- best value in a shotgun ever and that's why there's a bazillion of them out there to this day.
But being a autoloader kind of person, Benelli forever!- I remember this necro thread and many more like it and we've been given some nice shotguns along the way. The 10ga is great but I'd never own one IRL, it's just old technology that would be out of place with a scope/red dot/Propoint so a modern auto 12ga still remains my highest desire.
I'd also think a blackpowder shotgun would be cool! I've3 used and shot an old cap lock dbl barrel that had awesome cool factor for nostalgia reason but it was a dirty damn thing :lol: A morning out rabbit hunting with one and you looked like you just got out of a coal mine - all black powder stuff is just dirty as hell in every way but that's how it was done.

Still a good discussion to be having!
I have to agree with this. I personally have a Mossberg 500 with the 28" barrel to shoot clays with or dove, and I have to say I much prefer taking out my dad's Remington 870 express magnum. Just feels more solid to me versus the 500 with it's slide being all wobbly. However that is just my opinion and I think people should just shoot what makes them happy. One thing about the Mossberg that I have to give them credit for is not having that loading latch. With the Remmy I tend to eventually pinch my finger and it irritates me to no end. I guess it is a little thing but none the less it is a problem that you would think has a easy fix. Might bring it out one evening and see if I cant remove the latch. Happy Hunting!

I would also like to see a S-A 12ga preferably in the Benelli vein. I would go further to recommend having sights available, either iron or low powered optic. It would make a wonderful combo for slug throwing missions.

In regards to the Mossberg vs Remington debate. Its allot like Chevy vs Ford. Both are just fine but you have people that are dedicated to one or the other. As for me, I will keep my Ford AND Remington :D

Well, as I wrote this is at least partially intentional. And even if it "feels" less solid, it not neccessery is. ;) After all, it passed tests of U.S. military, right? ;)

But of course:

SoftShoe, you probably can't be more right than this (well, maybe aside of fact, that I would rather prefer german or japan car). ;) I agree this is mostly about personal preferences and expectations. :) I would like to "have" both of them, but in-game this is rather pointless (well, IRL maybe too, but if one can, then way not? ;) ).



So again - 12ga semi-auto based officialy or unofficialy on Benelli model would be great. :)

But even more, I would like to see chokes - but this is rather distant dream ;)
