    Mossberg Silver Reserve field, 28", M & F, black walnut stocks, MSRP $693.

    Anyone actually shot one?

    Quality?

    Where is it made?

    Sounds like it could be a fun gun for sporting clays, small game and upland if it's built decently. Price is attractive but that means squat if it is unreliable.

    So far the reviews I've seen by owners are favorable AFTER the 2008 firing pin redesign. If the review was BEFORE 2008 there are some negative comments. I was hoping someone here had actual experience with this gun.

    Brian, Brian, Brian. You and I have had our issues, but I at least thought you were a hard-core gun dude. Why in the world would you consider such a low-end Turkish Turd?

    Yeah, I know first hand that it's a piece of crap. That's about the nicest thing I can say about it.

    WHY? Curious because I knew nothing about this gun. That's why I'm asking.

    Tron's feedback is what I'm looking for. Someone here who actually has experience with it.

    What is there to know? It's a POS because it's an Over-Under that lists for $693 new. Don't you have any understanding at all about manufacturing costs, materials & labor?

    Gary, you work too hard at being snarky.

    The feedback from Tron and Quartering, people who actually have had hands on experience, is what I was looking for. Real experience, not noise. Sometimes you find a diamond in the rough, but all too often it's worthless.

    Hey, does anybody on here have hands-on experience with those Rolex watches you buy on the street in NY City for $20? Are they good quality? I know a Rolex usually costs 10 grand, but I figure these guys just cut out the middle-man.

    Sounds like you want to hear good things about the gun so you can justify the purchase.
    Do the math. A Perazzi, which ain't all that special, costs about 10k new. You can pick up used ones for 6k, ten times the cost of that 410.
    one tenth of nothing special equals a piece of shit.

    Yeah, but I heard Mossberg has a magic metal factory and genetically engineered trees that grow pre-checkered walnut.

    I loved mine. 1972. Mechanical triggers, ugly wood but a great doubles gun. Shot some of my best averages in doubles with her. Sold it back to service manager at Browning. He still shoots it for doubles.

    LOL Barry, did you look at the gun he's talking about? In 1972, the dufus who designed this POS hadn't been born yet.

    The only thing that is good about it is the looks. I had one and sold it.

    I have no experience with the .410 model but the 20 ga and the 12 ga guns that I have seen were not good quality. Both quit shooting before they got to 1000 rounds. Both were taken to a very good gunsmith who was reluctant to even try to work on them. Both were bought by guys who had been advised not to buy them and neither has been able to sell their gun the last I knew. JPM

    Yeah but I bet for the first 900 rounds they were target CRUSHERS!

    For those of you with actual hands on experience, thank-you. That's all I needed to know. Won't bother to look at it any further.

    For the pesky shoo-flies... meh.
