    I'm not all that familiar with Mossies, but I guess it would because they are different enough from Rems that under stress you may cause a malfunction if you are used to Rems.

    Just got the new barrel for my 870 and changed it out this evening. Will post pics later.

    In this case, the safety is in a different location for each type. Remington has the push-button on the trigger guard, Mossberg has a slide switch on the top, right about where the stock meets the metal.
    Like so:


    Other than that, a pump shotgun is pretty much the same as any other pump shotgun, most differences are not of the noticeable variety, AFAIK. Well, Ithaca ejects shells straight down rather than to the side...maybe some others. Not important! I go now....

    Thanks for the clarification on the differences. The barrel I bought was actually manufactured by Mossberg. Swapping barrels was just about the easiest bit of gunsmithing I've ever done. Removing the magazine plug was a bit trickier, but not too hard. One pleasent surprise with the new barrel is that its parkerized, not blued like in the catalogue description. Bonus! Wife's initial reaction was positive, although she didn't have a lot of time to check it out last night.

    Yeah, I swap barrels on my Mossberg all the time, and the Remingtons I've checked out looked to be at least as easy, same with the Winchesters my future brother in law has.
    We'll go out and shoot farm pigeons, swap barrels and send slugs downrange, I even switch out and set my Mossie up as a .50 muzzleloader. :-P

    Stuff like this is why I love shotguns.

    I also took Pauli's advice regarding the magazine extension - don't bother because if its a problem that can't be solved with four rounds of 00 buck, its a problem that I shouldn't be solving with that gun (I changed Pauli's wording a bit). Those kinds of problems are what my M14 is for. :toothy12:

    but operating the safety is.

    personally, i would want her to know how to take it from safety on, chamber empty, laying on the bench, to properly mounted, firing the first round on target, and another in the chamber without thinking.
