    Yeah, it's not modified.

    That's a factory gun, and it sure is nice to carry in the truck.

    The one in your post is the 8 shot 20" bbl model.

    Pretty cool shotgun.I was able to shoot a hundred round's without a problem.For $300 I am not going to complain.Did not know that it was stock as I have never seen one before.Any idea when these were made?I tried calling Mossberg but got left on hold for over forty minute's so I hung up.

    You must not watch a lot of movies.

    They showed up in the hands of most SWAT teams in the movies during the 80s and early 90s (same time period that they were manufactured).
