It really does depend on what you want to use the shotgun for and how important features and country of origin are to you. For example, I am shopping for an upland game gun and have narrowed it down to a 20 gauge (New) Ithaca 37 or a Browning BPS. I am drawn more to the Ithaca because it is 100% made in the US, comes with a nice recoil pad, receiver engraving, 3 chokes, and decent wood compared to more of the entry level models.
If country of origin is important to you, do not be fooled by the Made in the USA tags on the Mossbergs. While great guns for the price the are more assembled in the US with a few US made parts.
