Furthermore, GunsandAmmo.com cites
the 500’s long history of production as evidence of its dependability. They state, “Mossberg has been building the 500 for 52 years,” meaning that “more than 10 million of these pump guns have rolled off the assembly line.”Its enduring popularity can be seen today, as many amateur and professional hunters can be seen using a pump-action Mossberg.

The auto-loading shotgun is one of Mossberg’s best-sellers, earning praise throughout the firearm community. In particular, the 930 model is one of its most coveted, respected, an popular models.

According to a review by BestTacticalShotgun.com, the 930 is one of the three best tactical shotguns on the market today. They conclude, “It’s a bit more pricey being a semi-auto, but the beauty of that is that you just put the shells in and keep firing until you run out.”  This type of shotgun is best suited for home defense or for security personnel.

One of Mossberg’s most popular 12-guage shotguns is the Maverick 88, which is specifically used for home defense and bird hunting. This slide-action shotgun was developed and produced in the late 1980s, and its massive popularity keeps it in production today.

Gun buying website CheaperThanDirt.com argues that the Maverick’s popularity is driven by its exceptional performance and makes for a great purchase for novice shooters, saying, “The Maverick 88 is a terrific value to anyone looking for a first shotgun or an inexpensive defensive arm.”
