I bought one last year in '06. I like the balance and action, both superb. I found the trigger and grouping a little rough, but they improved with time. It was kinda like breaking in a 1911 pistol, needed some oil and rounds to break it in. I don't shoot MOA with it, but it's more and enough for what I bought it for, HUNTING. The stock and finish are tough and I find myself treating it like an AR15 in the bush. The gun has held up well and shoots well. I actually got rid of my treasured 336 30/30 because the Mossberg handles nice and I don't worry about beating up the finish and stock in the thick stuff.
