In trying to upload a picture of a Mossberg Cruiser with foregrip I accidentally cocked up what uploaded picture was which and unintentionally replaced a couple of pictures. I clicked upload before I noticed that filenames for those already existed. Is there any means of salvaging this? I'm really sorry. - Kooshmeister

You just have to revert to the previous version of the image. I just did this. It's no big deal. -MT2008 14:39, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

The wood foregrip of early models is very rare and highly sought after.

What is this?

Closeup of the Mossberg as Hruska prepares to fire at Knoxville.

That's been baffling me a bit - what is that thing at the foreend? A laser sight? StanTheMan 15:27, 17 July 2011 (CDT)

Think you are right, looks like a standard laser sight with a remote switch. As for the mount, it looks like a Laser Devices dual ring mount, which attaches onto the end of the buffer tube. They make them for most shotguns and can take a torch, or a laser sight using a collar. --commando552 18:10, 25 September 2011 (CDT)

590 CC vs. FABARM

Does anyone know how the 590 Compact Cruiser compares to the FABARM Martial Ultra-Short? I'm writing a story where one of the main character's weapons is a compact shotgun, and I'm set on using the one or the other. - User: 2wingo

Main question would be, where is the story set? If it is in the US then I don't think you would be able to import it due to BATF regulations. Disregarding this, or if the story is set in Europe, then you get an extra round in the magazine of a Mossberg and the barrel is about 4 inches longer giving you more range with a tighter spread, but conversely it is longer and more cumbersome. I have never fired the Fabarm, but from my uninformed perspective I would choose the 590 based on the fact that it is more tried and tested, probably more reliable, and it will be much easier to get more spares and after-market parts. --commando552 (talk) 17:37, 14 December 2012 (EST)
The story takes place in New York City. The character gets all her guns from an unscrupulous gun store owner with ties to the black market. - User: 2wingo

Where I can buy that book? --Dannyguns (talk) 04:59, 2 January 2017 (EST)

"Mariner" shotguns

Is it just me, or does it seem tactically unsound to give a shotgun a shiny, reflective barrel? I mean, even if you're just hunting, the light reflecting off that thing could easily catch your quarry's attention and scare it away. And side question: Why is it even called that? - User: 2wingo

Mariners are not for hunting, they're for marine environments. The finish protects the gun from moisture and salt corrosion. --Funkychinaman (talk) 02:42, 6 January 2013 (EST)
I see. Thanks! - User: 2wingo
Also: Only the earliest Mossberg Mariner shotguns had a shiny finish; the vast majority of the Mariners in circulation have a duller stainless finish. My own Mossberg 500 Mariner is not the least bit shiny, let alone reflective. -MT2008 (talk) 18:12, 15 July 2023 (UTC)


Is there a special name for a Cruiser with a Mariner finish? Mariner Cruiser? (I've been using "Mariner Cruiser." And which section should it go under, Cruiser or Mariner? --Funkychinaman (talk) 11:14, 8 February 2013 (EST)

There's no section called "Mariner", only Cruiser, and it should obviously go under section Cruiser. I'm just a little curious about shotguns without stock, why do you need to fire it from hip? TitaniumAlloy (talk) 11:39, 10 February 2013 (EST)

Pistol grip shotguns are a product of both the way most repeating shotguns feed and the National Firearms Act. With most repeating shotguns by reducing barrel lenght you reduce the magazine capacity. Plus under the NFA you have minimum barrel and overall lenghts.This means that you can only legally shorten a barrel so far before neading a $200 tax stamp and registering the firearm with the BATFE. Back in the 1980 you had alot of police departments on a budget having to do drug raids. Alot of departments could not afford a bunch of $200 tax stamps but they could afford alot of rear pistol grips. Plus pistol gripped shotguns fit in budget patrol cars better. Hense the name "Cruiser" As far as fireing it from the hip it works much better fireing it from eye level.Rockwolf66 (talk) 13:46, 10 February 2013 (EST)

Users of Mariners

Why are some Mossberg 500 & 590s called "Mariners", does USMC really uses those kind of shotguns with Marinecote finish? TitaniumAlloy (talk) 10:27, 2 July 2013 (EDT)

Mariners, as in sailors. The finish deals better with moisture and salt water. --Funkychinaman (talk) 10:36, 2 July 2013 (EDT)

This Gun Image is same thing ?

If it is the same as I will replaced a image of another one. --KINKI'boy (talk) 11:12, 25 October 2013 (JST)

They are different weapons; the top one has rifle sights while the bottom one doesn't. Orca1 9904 (talk) 05:41, 6 January 2014 (EST)
