    Mossberg 930spx range report...

    Just returned from test firing this bad boy and she shoots like Michael Jordan. I checked the iron sight with a laser bore sighter before taking her out and the sights were dead on.

    Fired 8 slowly to make sure would cycle properly, then 7 rapid fire then 7 more rapid. Rest of the box for accuracy. Wow....I love this gun. That barrel was hotter than a 5 dollar pistol. I think this will be a keeper. I just recently bought a Double Defense Stoeger and it was a real disappointment. Sent if back twice because it would not function right out of the box. Have yet to get a new gun that they are sending for replacment.

    Did the ghost/iron site come with it or did you buy afterwards? If afterwards, where and how much?

    Ghost sight came with it.

    Someone asked me why it is mounted so far up the rail, because it reduces the sight radius. It came in that position, and I have since moved it back.

    How much was it ? Did you have to wait to get it?

    Thanks. I really want one!

    i ran a few different brands through my 930 base model. it didn't like Federal low recoil rounds too much, not enough pressure to cycle. seems that 1350 fps and up work reliably.

    Got it a Bud's. They have gone up on the price since I ordered.

    Glad you enjoy it.

    I have been rocking the 930 SPX for a few years now as a HD shotty. I have had a few failures, but those were on afternoons where I was shooting 200-300 rounds of low-brass target loads, near the end of the session. After a good cleaning, it is always good to go again.

    I think the sights are one of the things that makes the shotgun such a good value. I actually put a plug in mine and use it as a deer shotgun too (no rifles in Ohio for deer), and routinely take it out for informal clay sessions (which is where the high round counts come in).

    Accessories can be a little hard to find, but you can usually find something that will work with some looking. Enjoy the SPX, they are a whole lot of fun.
