I agree I got that blasted safety on my 500C 20 ga. Dang things break to easy!
The wood is good, but not highly figured or anything. I've heard rumors that they only used walnut on both this and the pistol-gripped stock - I dunno, kinda looks like birch to me - but its pretty plain-jane on this model. I'm happy enough with it as is so I probably won't do anything with the wood until the original finish gets damaged or begins to deteriorate.jackdaniels said:Wonder what the wood looks like under that mossshield finish? How is it for mounting a scope? How does the tang safety work compared to the Marlin cross bolt safety? JD
Yes I participated in that poll. but that was as far as it went.Anachronism said:Yeah, I'd love to see a 35 Remington or 32 Win. Special version. Heck, if it came in .357 Mag I'd probably have another one already. A while back Mossberg had a poll up on their site asking what other calibers folks would like to see these made in so they're at least thinking about it.
