Gun: 4 Stars out of 5

Didn't have alot of grease, but still took it down and did a detail cleaning when it arrived. Fit and finish isn't the best, the front sight is slightly crooked (can't tell when shooting it), and there are a couple of imperfections on the stock/receiver. The recommended break in is 100 rounds of high brass buck or slugs. I didn't have that much, so I just shot 100 rounds of low brass trap loads expecting some trouble. I had four failure to extracts in the first 100 rounds (1 rim ripped off). I wasn't terrible happy, but I took it home, did another detail cleaning, and took it out again this weekend. Absolutely no trouble in 200 rounds. Every round fed, fired, and extracted with no issues. I even shot all 5 shots rapid fire from the hip (trying to get it to malfunction), and it worked great. It's not a beautiful shotgun, but it does it's job damn well. I'm just about as good with it as I am with my wingmaster that I've owned for a decade, and I'm sure I'll get better the more I get used to it.

The Mossberg 930 is a 12-gauge semi-automatic shotgun designed by O.F. Mossberg & Sons. The Mossberg 930 is gas operated, which means that some of the hot gases from the burning gunpowder are used to push a piston that operates the action, ejecting the spent hull and chambering a fresh shell. This gas action reduces the recoil felt by the shooter. Like other Mossberg shotguns, this shotgun has an ambidextrous safety that is located on the rear of the receiver. The Mossberg 930 takes 2.75 or 3” shells and can be accessorised with shell catchers, Picatinny rails, special muzzle brakes for door breaching, etc.
