    My experience has been just the opposite. I actually purchased the Mossberg Shockwave and did not like it at all. I sold the Mossberg and bought the Remington TAC14 and I like it much better. I much prefer the location of the Remington's safety over the location of the Mossberg's safety. To me the Remington is a much more refined and smoother gun to shoot. I found the Mossberg to be a literal pain to shoot. The Remington is a pleasure to shoot.
    Having actually owned both, I prefer the Remington over the Mossberg. I know most of the reviews prefer the Mossberg, but I'll take the Remington any day. Just my two cents worth in a twenty-five cent world. :-)

    I consider my Mossberg the Wilson Combat pistol of the shotgun world. The more it was shot,or in the least,stroked,the better(much better)it got.
    I worked the action 500+ times before I even shot it once. Then I shot about 60rds of light target 2.75" shells thru it.
    After the range session,while it was apart,I smoothed and buffed the actions internals. Also while apart I had a chance to lube it correctly(IMO).Then worked the action along with firing the action another couple hundred times or so.
    Now the gun has another 40 rds thru it with the mini shells and about 30rds of the 2.75" light loads. It is quite a bit smoother and the action does not seem to gain resistance just after the bolt starts to move rearward.
    With these small guns, stand in front of a mirror and bring it up to target then work the action. There is not much to hold onto like a gun with a full buttstock. NO PART of these little guns is supported by your body. Just your two hands. You tend to push the gun together to open the action,then pull it apart to close the action. It makes it feel somewhat awkward and not smooth.
    Also while in front of the mirror,watch how you naturally lean the gun sideways. It is actually hard to keep it upright without a buttstock. Practice how you will bring this gun to target and most importantly how and where to aim when firing.
    With this gun canted and held out away from your body it is actually easy to miss your COM target at the closer ranges. (7yds) Practice,practice,practice. ---- SAWMAN

    I think what made me not like the Remington is that gaudy magpul foregrip. It seem to over power the gun. I like the sleek look and feel of the Mossberg foregrip.

    That's just me though. If the had a Mossberg 12 Guage in stock I would have bought it.

    I always stop in to say hi to the owner Eddie but he is never there...

    Ken, It's that MagPul fore grip that I like better than the one on the Mossberg. Different strokes lol. Plus, the location on the safety is what Really makes me like the Remington. That safety on the Mossberg will tear up the fleshy part between your thumb and forefinger. Both are good guns though.

    I have quite a few rds thru my Moss now and never been touched by the safety. I installed an extra high aftermarket safety also.

    I was looking at these on ebay.

    But I probably won't ever use the safety either.
