I'm selling my Remington 870 and looking into the Mossberg semi-auto's (930 variation) and would like anyone's thoughts.

My main reason is that the 870 just slams my cheek (I'm a lefty) and lately I've really wanted a semi-auto in my collection.

I like the ambidextrous safety and overall reviews on it, just thought I'd post this here to get your thoughts.

Thanks

I shot a 930 Waterfowl with a 28" br this fall and really liked it. It was also a very nice looking gun with walnut stocks.

I am watching the FS ads, but the MSRP is more than twice that of my 870.

Why's that? It doesn't work well for me, just curious what the reasoning is.

If I still lived in MN I'd take the 870 off your hands, if it was a Wingmaster. I've had 4 and am down to 1 which belonged to my father. I just sold a skeet gun which I should have kept but never shot it.

I have a H&K Fabarm Camo Lion but don't know if it comes in LH. Get what you want but try to get something that is LH.

I get bit by SxS's, kept my BSS but sold the Parker Repro SSS - kind of wished I kept it now but that is a lot of money to have invested in a gun one doesn't like shooting. I pissed the money away anyway, although I did use some of it to buy the Camo Lion.

You might look at getting an U/O.

I've got a nice o/u for trap, just looking at something more lefty friendly for a home defense shotgun really... I have no issues with the 870 other than the reverse safety and the stock slapping me in the face. It's a solid gun, and a good shooter... I just want to try something else and have handled the Mossberg, feels good in the hands and easy to work.
