Mossberg 695 12 Gauge Slug Shotgun

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Mossberg 695 we tested had a balky 8.5-pound trigger with a lot of creep and a bolt that often failed to fully eject spent hulls. Also, the out-of-line holes for the scope mounts prevented us from zeroing the gun, and the low comb accentuated kick.

In our view, the Mossberg bolt was big and clumsy. During testing, it failed to cycle efficiently with 2.75-inch shells. We can't image the difficulties that might arise if the gun is chambered for 3.5-inch shells. The Mossberg safety is a rotary switch at the rear of the bolt (arrow).
