    Before I bought, I'd want to know that it works properly. Don't need to throw $317 and perhaps a bunch more down the road on something that doesn't feed/extract properly.

    Luckily I already have a much better .375 so no issue for me, but for some it might allow them to try it without breaking the bank- as long as they are right handed or willing to shoot it from the wrong side that is

    Agreed..... Mossberg has stepped up there game on many fronts. However, I can tell you personally..... That when they introduce new products, they usually suck and have to get their kinks out.... takes a longtime. (O/U's, SemiAuto Shotguns, AR Styles, etc.). With has much recoil & energy that a 375 throws off. No room for cheap parts.

    I can tell you that at least the one I have will print and after almost a year and about 150-200 rounds no malfunctions I have shot 300gr at 2550fps and 200gr at 3213fps is moa easy with couple of 3 shot groups under a dime.

    If insult was taken, my apology but it was not intended. But buying a $300 rifle that may be used for a $10K and up DG hunt is something I'd advise to be considered carefully. The rifle may be fine, I won't say it isn't just because it's cheap. But if it were me considering it, I'd make darn sure it works as it must.

    No offense taken was just putting in my experience with my Mossberg. I was planning on replacing plastic stock but the way it shoots I'm not touching it.

    This weekend it's going ground hog hunting I figured I could kill them and bury them in one step. If I miss they will have another hole to run down.

    That's awesome. That's a tall order from even the most expensive & tested rifles. Especially, since the 375 punches a hole about the size of a Dime.

    IMG_0478.JPG This is the first 4 shot group out of it scope was just bore sighted 1st was 8-9" high I turned it down fired remaining 4 and was happy with loads and setup couple more shots and it groups 1.75" high and center. It has been fun working with this rifle. Did have one problem that was my fault used a cheap set of rings that in 15 shots destroyed themselves and Weaver mounts that came with the rifle.

    I lucked out this time with the scope when I shoulder this rifle with my eyes closed then open them it's there no movement needed if I had to move I'd be up the creek as it stands I'm looking to upgrade but not because of fit I want more power in the scope, sometimes I watch a long field and x7 is to weak can't always make out antlers.

    At the moment white tail deer and black bear are the only game I'll be tackling for a while.
    Going to try it on ground hogs just to use it.
    Saw the cartridge couple of years ago when Mossberg started clambering it at low cost I had to have one I would have been happy with 2" at 100 yards so that was a bonus.
    Do I need it NO but I love it. Now looking at a 98 action in my "junk" drawer and thinking how big can I make it. I think it a virus I got on this forum.

    Besides my wife and I are getting older and sometimes she looks at me like those Cape Buffalo do, just makes me feel a little safer.
    Kidding aside it's not a safe queen it's more like a hammer it does its job and if I get stuck pushing the swamp brush I'm not afraid to drag it by the strap behind me as I push through on my hands and knees.

    This is something like their 3rd run of these and this one took a long time to be released, so I'm guessing they addressed any issues with the previous ones

    They have stainless versions, so I'm guessing this will become a fairly popular Alaska gun. No worries about messing this one up!
