I have owned one of these for the last 4 years as mine is the waterfowl model it has the longer barrel and really reaches out there. I have had some issues with it pertaining to feed problems with the 3.5 tky mag with the xx full choke but find that a little silicone spray in the action remedies this. I have also had issues with the breakage if the plastic guide on front of the receiver so I have purchased a surplus from Mossberg have had no problems with the updated guide to date. also get a sight as I have found that the fiber optic front site is way off the mark with the tky choke, I opted for the bushnell trs red dot.
a bad day hunting beats a good day at work any day
