    Model 50273. Put 50 rounds of various ammo (slugs, 00 buck and #4) to break it in. Thought I'd add some pictures for your viewing pleasure. Hope I'm adding them correctly... :)

    Mine took a couple hundred rounds to break in well, but you can really tell once it gets worn in a little.

    Never had the opportunity to handle the Mariner version. Always wondered..........is there a 28" vent rib Mariner barrel? Only see it in the short barrel configuration.

    I wanted to put 50 rounds of different types of ammo through it before I took delivery, to make sure it worked correctly.

    I look forward to further break-in sessions in the near future. :)

    I have not seen a 28" barrel in the Mariner configuration - but I'm a newbie to this forum, so that question is better posed to the group at large...

    Beautiful shotgun. Don't change a thing. Breaking it in is half the fun. Once this is done she"ll be like a close friend.

    Thanks! :)

    Have 2 modifications planned for the Mariner: A Promag safety (already ordered), and Hogue furniture (need the 12" LOP, I have shorter arms). But I want to keep this shottie simple, so that's probably it.

    FLmossy,
    Good call on the Promag safety upgrade. You'll be very happy with it.

    It is really hard to buy more fun for the dollar than a Mossberg 500.
