    I'd go with the 500. Next best thing to a Remington 870.

    Mossberg, like the Rem., has more after market options.

    Remington 870 Express

    If you watch the sales you can pick one up for slightly more than 200. Very few problems reported with this gun.

    Remington or Mossberg, both are very good shotguns and have good aftermarket support.

    a couple of years ago i got my 870 express at a pawn shop for 100 and they threw in a hard case th egun had a couple of little scratches on the wood but they werent bad
    the gun has worked out perfact never a problem and i have put several cases of shells through it
    the case was junk though i dont know if they got salt water in it or what but it is very corosive
    i can leave any gun in there for 1 day and it will come out with alot of rust on it
