Mossberg SA-20 No. 75771 3-Inch 20 Gauge

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

This is a light, fast-handling gun that shot great in our tests. It’s also inexpensive, so why the dual grade? Loading the sucker was such a pain that we grew to dislike it. The bolt-release had to be depressed for the elevator to allow another shell into the magazine. If it weren’t such a crucial function, we might be able to look past it. We recognize some shooters have similar guns and don’t mind the inconvenience. For them, look at the second grade, for this is a good gun otherwise.

The Mossberg magazine cap lacked a sling swivel stud.
The Mossberg stock had a lot to recommend it—it was thin and easy to push around—but perhaps the most important thing was the hook on the pistol grip. The grip provided a shelf-like feel that the other guns lacked, and our team said that element provided control.
The Mossberg balance point occurred in front of the ejection port. The gun came up smoothly and all the way to the shooter’s face, probably a combination of its light weight and thin dimensions. On all three guns we would have liked a slippery top insert to ensure the pad didn’t stick in the vest.
