    I am not a shotgun guy - BUT there is a local guy that wants to do a trade of a Mossberg 600 12 gauge plus some cash on a Taurus 357 I am selling.

    Right now I do not have any shotguns - but it is a pump, and a pump is the only shotgun configuration I would ever be interested in.

    Anything good, bad, or in different to say about the Mossberg 600 ?

    What the spork is a Mossberg model 600? I've never heard of one. I know of the 500, and I own a 590. Also the 935, but no 600.

    Enlightenment, anyone?

    They do exist. Go to gunsamerica.com and search on mossberg 600. Three came up for me.

    Probably a typo. Probably a M500.

    McGunner -

    The guy described it as a ..."mossberg 600at 12 gauge with adjustable choke".

    Model 600 is a store brand Mossberg Model 500 .(same gun - made by Mossberg for a store contract)

    I think it was New Haven ? where the store brand version was M 600

    Not a lot of people like the adjustable choke plain barrel guns so value is in the $100 range for the most part. Where you live makes some difference in value of course. The Mossberg pumps are good guns and from that standpoint not a problem. Also different barrels and accessaries are readily available.

    they were the lowest line brand name for a outlet store...i forget the one that went out of business a while back. These are worth literally nothing (about $100).

    the same guy tried a trade with me, and after looking at conidtion, it was not worth it. Look at the extractor and barrel.

    If you want to get into shotguns, you could do worse. Of course for $50 more you could do a lot better and get an 870.

    That said, if you want out of that Taurus and he'll give you your price minus $100, not a bad deal really.

    Well Guys...

    Thanks for the replies. As it turns out I have a cash buyer for the Taurus - so will not be getting the Mossberg. If we would have done the trade, I set the value as around $125 - just because I was not really in the market for one. A Big negetive - I don't hunt. I mean I do not hunt anything. So a shot gun has very limited use for me.

    Thanks again guys,

    Halvey & Zach,

    Exactly. That and the ability to say to my son..."and this is what a shotgun looks like"...

    I prefer my Mossberg to any 870. Had a Wingmaster and didn't like it for waterfowl. The loading gate was always pinching my cold, numb fingers (hurt bad) and occasionally I wouldn't get a round up in the magazine far enough and it'd shoot back under the loading gate and jam up the gun. To, I shoot lefty and prefer the tang safety on the Mossy. The Mossberg doesn't have that stinkin' loading gate in the way and shoots just as good as any Wingmaster. What I'd REALLY prefer is a Browning BPS, but they're a little pricy.

    I had a "store promotional" Mossberg. It may have been worth next to nothing, but I traded for it for a worthless motorcycle frame, so I came out smellin' like roses. :D I used that gun for 10 years hunting with steel shot until I got the M500 I use now. It was a single action bar and had the screw adjustable thing for a choke, but I bought a M500 interchangable choke vent rib barrel out of numrich arms for about a hundred bucks for it and sold the screw adjustable choke barrel to a guy at work for 25 bucks.

    That gun was originally sold through Western Auto stores in the 60s, marked "revelation M310" or some model, think that's right. It had the tang safety, too, good old gun, I just wanted a new M500 with the camo bling. :rolleyes:
