I’ve been fortunate over the years to have had the opportunity to try most of the major pump action 12 gauge shotguns on the market today. Many are well made, some not so much. While many pump action shotguns will do an excellent job for home defense my overall selection for best 12 gauge pump action shotgun based on durability, reliability, accuracy, and ease of adding mission specific accessories goes to the Mossberg 590A1.
- 590A1 12 gauge pump action shotgun – 8+1 rounds, parkerized 20 inch barrel and receiver, topped with ghost-ring sights to get on target fast, easy to add sidesaddles to both the stock and opposite the ejector port if so desired, easy to add light and light mount, easy to add heat shield.
So what 12 gauge pump action shotgun do you prefer for your primary home defense shotgun?
