Savage / Stevens 320. $200, works good and it's not good for anything else. I guess you could deer hunt with it, if your into that. Mine has rifle sights. I have no pride in ownership (Chinese) and wish I wouldn't have bought it, but it works good for the specific purpose. Sits in my bathroom closet as a last ditch defense for others to use if I don't come back from checking the downstairs, with my pistol.
I would never use it to check downstairs because the barrel would go through each doorway long before I did. If somebody is down there they would just grab the barrel.

Took it to a friendly trap shoot, everybody liked shooting it. You got to get on the clay pigeon fast.

I have always used the Remington line of shotguns, my father and grandfather used these and I learned to hunt with them, so every time I shoot a Mossberg I find that the safety is in the wrong place and couldn't get used to it.

I believe quality wise it is a Chevy vs Ford situation, you need to decide what location you like the controls in and go that route.

What is the model number of the 870 being used or is it using a Norinco clone?
Are the leftover parts from the donor gun included?

Toss up on which is better. Personal preference is the best guide.

The model number is model 870 Express Syn Tact # 25077

And yes you are welcome to the leftover parts if you want them.

Want to make sure you don't miss from across the room. I tried shooting #1 and #4 buck from a Mossberg 500 with a rifled barrel. Man does it spread.

Sorry but I couldn't help it...

Why would you shoot buckshot out of a rifled barrel?

And are you saying the spread you mentioned was Good or Bad?

For people who are lousy shots, the spiral rifling causes a pattern twice as wide as without it. I didn't say I'd use it, I just mentioned the effect it causes.

five yards equals 18in spread. Thats actually something to think about.

I honestly wouldn't waste money on a home defense shotgun. It just sits there and has no other purpose. 6 months after buying mine I purchased a M&P 15 Sport. Much more fun, much more pride in ownership, and has multiple purposes. I've also learned that buckshot will travel through a couple of homes, so there is no point in having it vs a rifle with home defense rounds.
That's just my opinion.
