I really prefer a good aperture sight - the smaller the aperture, the more consistent and accurate it is.
At up to 50 meters, a good aperture sight is as tight shooting as a scope.
Still, neither of these guns is a 'target rifle', so it's a matter of personal preference.
I collect vintage Mossbergs - there is NO 502 plinkster in my gun locker. I don't consider it a true 'Mossberg', and it has nothing to offer that another gun doesn't have.
Carried in the field, it should make a good 'bunny thumper' though - semi-auto, good capacity and very light-weight.
OK thanks. I might get a scope mounted on it, will a scope mount be expensive?
Or would it be better to pay a bit more and get a CZ 452 .22LR. I have heard good things about them.
