Mossberg Model 930 Waterfowl Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Camo No. 85212 12-Gauge, $797

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

If cost is the predominant factor in a waterfowl hunter picking a shooting tool, the Mossberg is a very capable and effective choice. Just a little heavier and slightly lacking the glide factor of the other test shotguns. We were disappointed in the patterning with both clay-target and waterfowl loads.

Note the stock has a little more drop than the other shotguns, but it did not appear to have any negative impact on recoil with the heavier shotgun.
Just slightly less comfortable than the others because of its plain and standard checkering, the forearm of the Mossberg did not have the quality feel of the higher-priced models in the test.
The only semiautomatic in the group with a ported barrel, we found that the porting, along with the heavier weight of the Mossberg, helped tame recoil even with waterfowl loads.
The red fiber optic bar sight on the Mossberg is indistinguishable from the sights on both the Browning and Winchester. It helps align the shooter's eye on the target.
