Looks like a pretty good deal to me. I just bought an 870 from a member of the board here, and I'm looking to add a tactical stock and a few other goodies too.
Yea they retail for 469 i think at the sporting goods by my house, but they just had a sale and had em for 379. Just didnt have the money at the time.

Skimming the site you linked quickly, I'd buy this one:

Mossberg 50577 500SP 12 20 CB 8SH SYN for Sale at Buds Gun Shop $304.00

Then add a hogue youth stock, tacstar sidesaddle and flashlight. You'd be in a bit over $400, but you can start with the gun and get accessories as you can. I hate m4 stocks on shotguns, I think they suck at handling recoil and they put your face really low unless you're using something like a Mesa Tactical stock.

this is a great deal, I have been shopping around for this type shotgun, and this is the cheapest I have seen. I'll be saving the link for later.

I'm with you on this one; for a dedicated HD shotgun, I can't see what an M4-style stock adds to the usefulness...and may actually take away a bit (a bit more difficult to operate the Mossbergs tang safety, a lot more unpleasant to shoot with stouter HD loads--even low recoil buckshot has considerably more snort than a trap load...).

I'd also add a tritium front sight, but that's me.

I have not used a Remington 870 myself, but I have never had a problem chambering a round in a Mossberg. I think with any shotgun, the action becomes smoother the more you use it.

No shortage of accessories for the 500 either.

Remington 870, Moss 500. Both are great pump action shotguns. There is a reason they've been around forever especially the 870. As roundoff mentioned with these 2 shotguns there is no shortage in mods you can get for these. Both excellent choices for the money.

Noticed some anti-m4 stock comments in here. Has anyone tried the Knoxx SpecOps stock which is suppose to reduce recoil significantly?
Yes I have one on my 870 and I love it. Just make sure to get the Power Pak cheek piece for it. The only drawback of the Knoxx is if you don't use the cheek piece you can get cheek slap. The Power Pak eliminates it.
