Of those, whatever fits him better. I'd look for a nice 870 Wingmaster if possible

Mossberg 500 is the clear winner

I figured someone would do this but I didn't think it would be you. Guess who else used to praise 500's (even though it wasn't one of the choices)? Can we start calling you "minimax"?:jester:

I'm another Mossy owner, nothing wrong with their product.

I have a couple of old wingmasters. One is a 28" vent rib great gun! The other is a plain barrel cut to 18 1/2" with a 2 round extension. Another great gun. If it were me looking for a great gun for a gift I would cruise the used racks. An older wingmaster, a Winchester model 12, an old wingmaster, a old browning A-5, an old wingmaster.

My first pump was a Mossberg - I don't know what model - whatever it was that they made in a 28" modified choke that you could buy at Gibson's Discount Center for $55, in 1966. I shot a lot of blue-winged teal, assorted other ducks, squirrels, and rabbits with it, but I never loved it. It was bulky and clunky, had a gravelly trigger and pump action, and didn't look at all pretty, but it worked. I've never even picked up another Mossberg, since using a few shotguns that had nicer qualities, but I'm sure they are better than that one was, since a lot more people seem to prefer them over the Remington Express.
To me, the older Wingmasters vs the Express models are approximately the same comparison as the Benelli semi-autos vs. my Stoeger M2000. They won't kill any better, but they make you feel like you aren't working as hard to accomplish the same result.
