Mossberg 930SPX 12g 18.5" 8SH CB GRS MAT
by Robert P. Date Added: Wednesday 29 June, 2011
I was impressed with the product information provided by Mossberg about
their tactical 12 gauge, model 930sx. After about a seven month wait,
Bud's sent me an email notifying me a new 930 was available. I ordered
the second one of the forty Bud's had in stock. When it was at my FFL I
looked at it and immediately noticed the front sight was missing. The
gun also looked kind of scuffed, like it had been bounced around for a
while in its box. My dealer and I went through the box and packing
materials thinking the sight was either not installed or had come off
and was loose in the box. The sight was not located. Then I looked
through the rear sight and noticed the front sight wings were not in
alignment on the barrel. The rear portion of the front sight assembly
was canted or twisted to the right by about an eighth of an inch. I left
the gun at the dealer and contacted Mossberg. They were very courteous
and suggested I could either return the entire gun or just the barrel
for an expedited repair or replacement. Bud's was also very
accommodating and told me they would do whatever I wanted; return for
repair or replacement.

After a day of deliberation I decided to pay the extra dealer handling
fee and directed my FFL to return the unit to Bud's. Because I had
waited so long to get this gun and after delivery finding the two major
defects in it, I was very disappointed.

While made in America, I wonder if Mossberg has non-American, foreigners
on its assembly line. It looks to me like you get what you pay for. The
Mossberg is less expensive than other brands, and I own a Mossberg pump,
but I have learned that if I want a well made firearm, one that I can
expect to use a lot (and not just park under the bed), I will need to
pay more for the quality I want. Because of the poor craftsmanship of
the Mossberg, I looked at a Benelli. What a difference. I will likely
pay the difference and get a well made firearm I can take pride in.
