Mossberg 500SP 12g 18" 6SH CB ROADBLOK
[50591]
$397.00
by Phillip G Date Added: Monday 22 November, 2010
Sorry bout taking SO long to leave my review; I purchased this gun on 10/15/10. BUT, because of a few 'roadblocks,' my fun was to wait.

When it arrived at my FFL I observed the pistol grip being seperate from the shotgun. I thoughtlessly acquired this as a seperate item that was required of me to attach at home. Upon inspection of both the gun AND the manual I realized that the pistol grip was actually broken off(that sinking feeling approached in my stomach)! So I called Buds. To some disarray, they informed me that A) they couldn't take it back, and B) they had no replacement parts and for me to call Mossberg. I was abit dissapointed to hear Buds not being able to do anything. So...

I called Mossberg and they looked up my serial #. They notified me that my gun came jam-packed with a 10-yr. warranty(Fairly impressive) and that all I needed to do is send it via UPS/FedEx to their service center in Eagle Pass TX to get fixed. I did so. Once they fixed it they sent it back to the same add. that I sent it from(a local Postal Annex). Then I cleaned it up and went shooting today in 35mph winds. I didn't care if there were mass tornados, I WAS GOING TO FINALLY TRY THIS BABY OUT!!!

I've gotta tell you, the reader, just one thing: If you're looking for a fairly inexpensive shotgun that looks both tactical and defensive/offensive THIS is what you want! I was curious to see just how much recoil the muzzle brake would dampen. I've shot an old(1955) 20g. autoloader, a Remington 870 16g. and 12g.! The recoil of the Mossberg Roadblocker was that very similar of a 20gauge, MAYBE a 28guage(even though I've never shot a 28g.). I've only shot birdshot Federal through it.

This gun is ROCK ON, and the absolute ONLY reason I'm rating my transaction a 4/5 stars is because I received the gun with a broken pistol grip. Whether it was Buds' fault or UPS I don't know. But because it was sort of a hassle waiting for it to get fixed I'm rating it 4/5 stars on the transaction/experience. But, make no mistake, the gun itself COMPLETELY deserves a 6/5 stars for quality, dependability, and all-around fun!!!

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
