Re: Remington 870 or Mossberg 500 for slugs?
here's my rundown on the 870 and the model 37. I have the heavy contour 23" can't. barrel on my 870 super slug. that gun will shoot VERY tight groups at 100yds. I shoot 3" coppersolids out of it and have never had a jam or any other problem. I've put that gun through a rough life, and its still dead on as of 4 hours ago when I shot it. you can't get a better all around gun. I also have an 870 with the 20" smootbore for when I'm pushing thickets. its great to be able to change barrels in a matter of seconds. the Ithaca is a cabinet queen.lol its very light, but kicks like a stinkin mule. the bad part about the older model 37's and 87's is mounting a scope if you want to. I couldn't get the eye relief right with the scope mounted to the rear sight base. I'm now just using it with open sights. that is the only complaint I have about that gun. lightweight, quick cycling, and deadly accurcy makes it a great gun.
