    930 SPX Serial Number Issue?

    Hello, I'm asking any other 930 owners where their serial number is located. I'm very curious to see if others have a gun similar to mine. Thank you!

    Is there significance to where the number is stamped?

    That's what I was wondering. All the stamped serials I have seen are between the trigger housing pins.

    I'll have to look at mine. I want to say it's in the same place but I do not recall and all the pics I have are of the other side of the receiver.

    Thanks MikeD much appreciated! I did call and the customer service person said they would have to see it, I am still waiting for a reply.

    If they are machine stampeded you would think all the numbers would appear in the same place on all guns.

    I just looked through 12 pages of pics here on the 930 thread and all the ones that showed the left side had the ser# in between the pins.

    Thanks old mossy! I'm like the dog who caught the car. Now what? I hope I didn't get a 4:58PM Friday gun! haha! Any thoughts on what could have happened? I haven't shot the gun yet, only cleaned it in preparation to shoot it.

    Maybe I should sell it as a one of a kind!

    I gave up on finding out why the serial is jacked up. Emailed Dick's Sporting Goods where I purchased the gun and I didn't get a response. Emailed Mossberg Service again and nothing. So I'm just going to shoot the shift out of it in the next few weeks!

    I had mine out over the weekend. The serial number is stamped between the two pins.

    That is the only way I have seen them. Thanks for checking. Mossberg assured me it is functionally fine. Here is a pic of it after I got it back today from Harsh Firearms.
