Mossberg has a reputation for building reliable firearms for folks who prefer affordable performance over aesthetic frills. That function-before-form strategy applies to the company’s recently released Silver Reserve II Series of double-barrel shotguns, upgrades over the original Silver Reserve series released in 2005. Nearly all 18 models of over-unders and side-by-sides in the series carry suggested retail prices of less than $1,000.
So I took the 12-gauge field model of the SRII for a test drive to see how much a grand can get you these days.
Turns out, I got more than I expected. Check out my review of this gun and five other great over/unders that retail for less than $1,000.
