    I've been pretty happy with my Hatsan Escort which is a copy of the 870. However, between the two, I would vote for an older 870. My dad has a handful of them and the quality is better than the 500's I've shot.

    I have an 870 3" police magnum, but I think the Mossberg has a more convenient safety.

    Default Return of the A5

    Anybody up on the old-school long-recoil shotguns ("humpbacks")? These are Auto 5's, Remington Model 11's, Savage 720/745/755 etc, Remington 11-48, etc.

    Seems Browning has revived the Auto 5 name and come out with a new shotgun, but it does not seem to be the A5 that I know and love.

    Anybody know anything about how the action is supposed to work?

    I too have owned both the Rem. & Moss. but in a pinch I'de go with the Mossberg strictly because of where the safety is, right where your thumb rests, push it forward and your good to go, no double checking hopping you felt or heard a click like the Rem. safety, that when a potential intruder may be in your home could make the difference. That edge could save you life.

    Bob it's unanimous.

    You have to buy them both. Plus keep your eye out for that slam fire Ithica.

    Another plus for the Mossberg safety. My home defense is the 590 kept with the forearm halfway back as a loaded chamber indicator and the safety on. It's very easy to train young people and wives to use under stress.

    I would go with the 500 , I no longer own either model . I do however own the mossy bigger brother ( 835) which shoots the 3.5 mag . The mossy was the only military approved shotgun for a long damn time , because like a timex , they just kept running and running , opppps that is the energizer bunny .

    The 835 is the goosinist killinest shotgun I've ever used. It's especially fun if my buddies bring there 3'' mags because they can only get a shot when I am finished.
    It's range is considerably longer. Just be careful that it doesn't knock you out of the boat.
