Purchased this terrific Mossberg from non other than Bud's Gun Shop.com about one year ago. Smooth action, easy to handle and a pleasure to fire, especially with the added muzzle brake feature.
However, I added to the ease of firing by replacing the Mossberg pistol grip with a a Blackhawk Breachers, Recoil Reducing Pistol Grip with a Recoil Reduction feature.
Between the two features, the Muzzle Brake and Blackhawk grip, I estimate the recoil is reduced by about 70% and it allows me to comfortably fire the shoot gun with only one hand.
This will fit 12 Ga. Models: 500...590...835...and... 88.
One terrific home defense weapon !!! My opinion: " The Best There Is."
