We were a little disappointed in the Mossberg’s patterning, but did not consider the slightly larger groups to be a deal breaker. The lighter hit to the pocket book, along with its handling ability and flawless functioning, were key factors in our ranking.

We were pleased with the Mossberg’s safety, located on top of the receiver. This type of safety is easy to find and operate, even when wearing gloves or in low-light conditions.
Very similar to the Beretta, we liked the feel and shoulder-snuggle factor of the Mossberg. Only slightly less solid in the shooting platform ranking because of the checkering in the grip, we found recoil was acceptable with all test loads.
We found the 11.25-inch forearm provided a fine hold when moving the Mossberg through targets during rapid-fire drills.
