So, although I was dead set on picking up a pump gun to replace my 870, I ended up buying a Mossberg 935. I found a new pistol grip model for sale over at gunsamerica.com (Elk County Ammo and Arms) and the price was right. Well, after taking the gun home, I noticed the buttstock was cracked and gouged in several places on top of the comb. So, I contacted Mossberg and they emailed me a shipping label in order to return the stock. Meanwhile, the weaver scope base and replacement charging handle that I had previously ordered arrived, so I decided to strip the gun down, clean off the factory gunk and install the new parts. That's when I noticed the forend cap swivel stud somehow made it out of the Mossberg factory without being drilled! Mossberg said they will replace the cap, but come on! Damage to the buttstock could have occurred during shipping, although given that the box was in great shape, I have my doubts. I informed Elk County Ammo and Arms (for whatever that's worth) and I'm sure Mossberg will make it right. This is my first Mossberg so I'll chock this experience up to a random set of bad circumstances. However, I don't think I will buy a gun sight-unseen again.
