Re: gun reviews!

Re: gun reviews!

I have no experience with the Tikka but I can say that I'm not a big fan of the Mossberg 500. Compared to the Remington 870's and Browning BPS's, they seem flimsy to me.

Re: gun reviews!

All reports I have seen on the Tikka rates them very high. I have an 835 too and think it is a great gun so 500 should be good too.

Re: gun reviews!

I've got a 500 slug gun for hunting in MD. I love it, have taken several deer with it. I do understand the "flimsy" comment made. I thought the same thing when I bought it. I have two 870's and they do feel more solid, but I've never had a problem with the 500.

Re: gun reviews!

I have a tikka t3 in 25-06. It is the smoothest and best shooting gun I have. It will out shoot my 700's with ease, I probably will never buy another remington at this point, my 2 cents

How can a gun be flimsy?

Re: gun reviews!

I have owned Brownings, Remingtons and Mossberg 500's and 835's and I like the Mossbergs the best, flimsy or not

Re: gun reviews!

my mossberg is built sturdy. i bought it new in 90. it ain't fancy but gets the job done. and i love the tang safety. all guns should have them like that.

Re: gun reviews!

I have both mossberg 500 and a 870 express. IMO they are very close to the same. The Remington just costs more. If your were to buy the 870 Wingmaster that changes everything. Entirely different gun IMO.

Tikka? I know nothing.
