If you want reasons then as follows:
1. 870's reviever is steel, not alloy.

2. The 870 bolt locking system is simple, reliable and very hard to jam... will fire when dirty.. VERY reliable... 2 action bars.
LOTS of aftermarket accessories available.

Truth is that the Mossberg is a VERY good weapon... Just not quite as good as the 870..the price reflects that. I would not hesitate getting a Mossey... it won't fall apart on you... but a gunsmith for a very large PD range said that for their heavily used shotguns the repair ratio was 1 870 for every 10 Mosseys that needed work.

But they were HEAVILY used.
