Being away from home for so long traveling, one of the first things I intend to do is to treat myself to a nice shotgun purchase. Living close to sea and rain, I'm seriously leaning towards a MarineCote finish. I've seen the choices:

Mossberg: www.mossberg.com/pcatalog/Specpurp.htm (http://www.mossberg.com/pcatalog/Specpurp.htm)
Remington: www.remington.com/firearm...0MRMAG.HTM (http://www.remington.com/firearm...0MRMAG.HTM)
Winchester: www.winchester-guns.com/p...stnmar.htm (http://www.winchester-guns.com/p...stnmar.htm)

So which one has the best finish? I really am at a loss here on which shotgun to get. Any other suggestions, and opinions would be great and most valued.

I owned a Remington Marine Magnum. Wish I had never gotten rid of it. It is the best one, hands down. I mean it, end of discussion. Look no farther!

I have a Mossberg 590 and the action is super smooth. But I've never used a Remington, so you may want to stick with Ned's advice. One nice thing about the Mossbergs is there are a million accessories for them.

Remington 870 MM... hands down. The electroless Nickle finish on these is neigh-on indestructable. Will not mar or rust or corrode. The Mossberg "Marinecoat" is a joke in comparison.

The Remington is hard to find, but worth the hunt and the extra money. After you find on, send it to Hans Vang for the VangComp mod.
