Mossberg and the Miltary

Elbert Garrett

Elbert, during Vietnam the troops used three different shotguns. The Ithaca 37 & the Stevens 77 riot guns and the Winchester 1300 trench gun with a bayonet.


Well aware of that, thanks! I was a Scout in an armor battalion up at Ft Riley 75 to 78, our company armory was stocked with awesome!

I don't know why a Mossberg wouldn't stand up to 3000 rounds of anything provided a cool down period was involved. Barrels can get HOT on anything. The action is relatively simple and stays clean when the gun is used. What is the weakest part of a Mossberg (not counting a plastic trigger guard)?
