Pump Shotgun

Postby DuckGooseDestroyer » Sun Jul 07, 2013 8:59 pm

Hey Guys,
For those of you who replied to my last post I really appreciate it!!
I am now looking for a pump shotgun because I have decided that the semi-automatic is a little too much $ to spend on the first shotgun. I am looking for a dependable shotgun that won't jam on me like crazy and something under $500. I hope you guys can come through for me once more!!
Thanks,
AR

I picked up a mossberg 500 a few years ago for around 240 I think. It's camo and has been great. It's not my go to gun but I wouldn't cry if it was the only shotgun I had either

Remington 870 express if you are going to use it for hunting. It wont win any beauty contests at fancy clubs but for hunting its a workhorse. I bought my second one today. $403. out the door at" *****".

Also look at the mossberg 835. That is in your price range and takes 3 1/2" if that is important to you.
I love my SP-10

If you could find an older Wingmaster with a 3" chamber that would be perfect. Lots of them still around at good prices.

Not my kind of shotgun due to feel, but they are very very good guns. I'd say a Nova, 870, or a Mossberg 835. I've hunted with my 835 since I was 12 and I love it. I've also hunted with an 870 and a little with a Nova and they are both extremely nice guns. I'd avoid the 887 no matter what the guy at the counter tells you. I've seen nothing but trouble and jammed fingers with this gun.

The Nova will be the best bang for the buck. Good quality, reliable, and easy to break down and clean.

I'm surprised that the BPS is out of your price range. Its under 650 here in Canada for a new 3" stalker or hunter model and we usually pay $150 or more extra for new guns up here in the great white north.

I bought a mossberg 535 for $433 out the door. Came with two barrels and four chokes. Its a great gun so far. Made it through a pretty rough turkey season. Rainy and being ran through wet woods. Still has a super smooth action. It shoot 3.5 inch shells to. But i usually shoot 3 inch. It patterns well too. I would recommend it.
Hand me some more shells!

BPS is the best pump in production right now, and you could argue Ithaca too but you might as well buy an auto for that price.
If the BPS is too high the Nova would be my 2nd choice, then Mossberg.
870s tend to fit most people the best, if you go that route a used Wingmaster would be a much better choice than a new Express.

I you can find one a Winchester sxp is not a bad gun for the money, picked up a 3 1/2" waterfowl model and started hunting with it last September right on into January with out a problem, hunted just about every weekend. It's a lighter pump at around 7 1/2lbs, but it a fast action and has a great recoil pad on it. Look at some of the review's on-line or YouTube if you got the time.

I have one and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Mine is the 3.5" chambered black shadow and it weighs 7 lbs. I also wouldn't hesitate to recommend a Mossberg 500, 535 or 835. I have owned the 500'sand 535, I still own a 500 and if your arms aren't short those 535's and 835's are good all around waterfowl pumps. The only reason I don't own the 535 I had was due to the reach on the forum, it made me get it hung up under my arm with a jacket. That 535 patterned 3.5" 1 3/8 oz steel incredibly through modified and full factory chokes, the turkey barrel I had got with it was excellent as well.

if you like the ithaca well norinco make a copy...real plain jane from what Ive seen.
I shoot with a H&R pump and are very happy with it. winchokes fit it. I stuck 10 oz of lead shot up the buttstock and it tamed the heavy kicking loads right down.
