As a side note which ever one you purchase remember to keep it protected with some kind of rust inhibitor. This is true for any none SS gun. I have read a lot of complaints on the Internet of people having rust on their 870 Express. I'm not sure if they are more prone to rust compared to a Mossberg 500 or not. I just bought an 870 Express a few months ago and one of the first things I did is give it a good coat of Break Free CLP inside and out to prevent rust. I wasn't going to take any chances with it. I also have a Mossberg 500 and it also gets the CLP treatment. During your decision keep in mind that there is a large market of accessories for the 870 and the Mossberg 500 if you want to modify your gun any. This is not so much true with other brands.
