    There are two shotguns on sale, the Remington 870 "security"
    for 299 after 30 dollar manufacturer rebate. Good deal?
    Why would I want to get this over an express?
    Gonna be used primarily for home defense.

    sometimes you can get the mossberg with two barrels and a pistol grip to put on as well

    What's the diff with mosberg 590 n 500. 870 vs 870 express?
    I'm thinking about a flashlight and maybe flex scope

    I'd buy the Mossberg solely because with the 2 barrels so you could shoot for sport and HD without spending anymore money. But in my opinion the Remington is the better shotgun.

    I bought a mossberg because I prefer the safety and slide release. Some prefer the 870 :dunno: See what you like

    Get the Mossy. I bought that exact gun with the 2 barrels from Big5 and it's been flawless. To be honest the 870's I've held and shot felt like they had tighter actions and for damn sure had better finishes. But when it comes down to it, the 500 always goes boom.

    I got the 870 "security" which is basically an express 8 shot 20" or so barrel.

    300 bucks after rebate, of course 380 out the door, then -30 rebate.

    Jesus, there's always a "870 or 500" thread going on.

    BOTH of them are good reliable shotguns, BOTH of them are used by our military and police forces, BOTH of them have a shitload of aftermarket accessories, BOTH of them come in many different formats (hunting, security, self defence, combat).
    I wouldn't hesitate carrying either into combat.

    The difference is the location of the controls. Go pick up both models, try the safety and the release buttons to see which one you like AND THEN BUY ONE!!!
