    I like to 870 better, However the quality control is that of a chinese toy factory. Many of then have been having trouble with ejecting spent shells. Go with the Mossberg.

      I prefer the 870 over the 500. Just feel better in my hands. Heck, with 10 million sold its gotta be pretty popular!

            I own both and I perfer the 870. That being said my turkey gun is an H&R. I got the reciever and stock for free put on a 24" barrle chamber 3 1/2" shells with screw in choke tube. I love it. It is almost a foot shorter that my 870 and only cost me $150. That includes the choke tube.

                Don't know about the MB 500, but a turkey dies every time my MB 835 goes "bang" and has for the past ten years. (Same zombie turkey.)

                      I like both, but the 870 is better in terrain. You do need a stricter choke though.

                        I have both. I carry the 500 when I'm covering ground because it is a lot lighter. The 870 is just as good and more solid and heavier so recoil is slightly less. Because I have a turkey choke for the 500 and cover ground thats what I use but either works.

                          870 Wingmaster. The Wingmaster definitely has a smoother action than the Express and less stamped parts than the Mossberg or Express.

                            About 30 or so years ago I was faced with the same question. At the time a big box store was having a really good sale on the Remingtons so the price difference wasn't that big. I compared the quality, fit, and finish, etc. of the two. The difference between the two left no doubt that the Remington was the way to go. I still have it and it is still putting food on my table. Mossberg may have a better shotgun today than it did back then, but a few years back I gave my sons shotguns for Christmas. They got 870's as well.

                              I would stay away from the Mossturd, and go with an 870 Wingmaster.
