Wow... Now I realize that it's 2012 and we're actually in a different century. The future is here now. Thanks for posting.

And here I thought the Stoeger double defense was the height of tacticool uselessness




....who is this 30-30 for? Ranch Ninjas?

They won't sell many, it will get discontinued quickly & In 20 years it will be a rare, collectible oddity.

Boy . . . these will set the gun world topsy turvy.

Just another piece of junk that will appeal to the younger set who fantasize about playing Rambo . . . .

I agree . . . they won't sell many . . . .

To me, all these Tacticool guns and a lot of new vechicles look like they are made using Duplo blocks. If you like em, thats fine, but I will stick with my Old Mod 94 and my 336.

I always wondered what happened to the engineer who developed the Aztek for general motors. Now I know.

I can understand a synthetic stock if you don't want to scratch it or have water damage to your stock or just plain old saving weight. But his has gone to far and looks ridiculous. The lever gun is a symbol of america and our heritage this is disappointing things i have seen mossberg make by far.

I thought it was a joke when I first saw it. Now I'm thinking that it's a practical joke.

Yo guys... IT'S JUST AN ALTERNATIVE!... We can still buy the traditional woodstock ones... Jeesh... What, are we supposed to be buying and driving Model A's or Model T's too because they're a symbol of America and our heritage?

Hello-o-ow... Sometimes things change...

Doesn't look photoshopped...

There appears to already be a term for this sort of thing: "Brooklyn Assault Rifle".

Maybe there's folks in Africa or South America who might like it.
Hopefully Mossberg will sell some of them worldwide.
Mossberg also sells a tactical over/under that looks similar to the Stoeger.
It's a very solid shotgun that's made in Turkey by Kahn whereas the Stoeger is Brazilian.

Here's the Maverick HS-12 and it's built like a tank.

The top sight rail is grooved which allows for aiming.
