Mossberg Silver Reserve II Over/Under Shotgun: What Happened
published 01.08.2020 14:15
All in all, this would be a great first firearm for those looking to get into the sport and while silver often goes to second place this is by no means simply a “runner up” shotgun even if it took a second try and a bit of refinement to get the Silver Reserve II to the finish line!
While the Silver Reserve II won't easily be confused with a Holland & Holland or other high-end over/under shotgun out there it is still a quality firearm that delivers in the key areas.
The Silver Reserve II line has been expanded and includes both field and sporting models including the Field, Sport, Combo and Side-by-Side and these are available in four popular gauges including 12, 20, 28 gauges and .410 Bore; and with barrels ranging from 26 to 32 inches.
This over/under shotgun line was first introduced in 2011, and while Mossberg delivered a quality firearm at a reasonable price—something the company has been doing since it was founded in 1919—the Turkish-made Silver Reserve wasn't exactly what the market wanted and hunters didn't flock to it.
Both points are necessary to denote when discussing the Mossberg Silver Reserve II over/under shotgun—because simply put in its initial release it didn’t exactly take the hunting world by storm.
