    Local shop has a pistol grip one for $365 new. Is this ridiculously high for a stock Mossy? What would be the best way to "persuade" them to lower the price to a reasonable amount?

    I mean for that much I could be well on my way to a S12, which I would much rather have for that much money.

    I'd say it's too much. You can get a pistol-grip remmy for less than that. And I think the 870 is a better shotty.

    Yeah I figured as much. Does anyone know where I can find a Saiga 12 for a decent price online? :hs:

    They feel better for sure. The mossberg at the store felt very plasticy and rattled a bit. My buddies 870 felt quite solid compared to the Mossy.

    for $365 can just about get a 590 too, which i think feels alot more solid then the 500.

    Not to mention why are you buying a pistol grip only shotty?

    But yes, too high. I paid less than that for my 870P

    Yes, especially when you factor in the cost to fix it by buying the whole stock.

    Way too high. My 500 combo was $200. You can pick up the pistol grip for $20 online.

    Good luck finding one for under $1000 anymore, maybe a stock one if you're lucky. Converted ones are going for $1400+. :hsd:

    I dont. But its cheaper than the 400 something they want for the full length one with stock (I would look for a p grip + stock combo separately). I guess it would be better to find one online. Im just home for a few weeks and im having that shotgun itch real bad ever since I went into the store and held it. :hs:

    Its infectious goddamnit.

    Yeah, I really want to snag one before they become impossible to find. Hows this price for an original?

    fuck you're getting ripped off.

    a rem 870 express mag with factory +2 mag ext should be under $300.

    No shit, I want to go in there and ask if they price match. Maybe I can call around to find another shop somewhat near here and see if the guys in town would price match them. I suspect they wont be too keen on it though.

    CDNN doesn't link firearms.

    You have to call or fax.
