    I had to chime in on the Mossberg 715t. I bought one last year, and after the problems that I have been having with it, I don't like it. Yeah, it looks good. The quality is lacking. I am going to have to send it in for repairs. This is a first with any gun I have ever owned. If it was possible to get a refund, I'd take it.

    The bolt is hitting the follower in the magazine, and the bolt does not go all of the way back.

    Can you be a little more specific on this prob ?
    Did you have it apart ?
    The bolt is supposed to hit the follower after the last round .
    There's also a T shaped plastic buffer pad at the rear of the receiver . If it's not in correctly , the bolt won't go all the way back.

    BB, the bolt hits the follower no matter what.

    Jhon, I would let a smith look at it before you get rid of it. It might be something very simple.

    Sorry to hear...

    But I warned many people to stay away from those but 9 out of 10 get butt-hurt so I stopped.

    It is still under warranty, so when I can, I will send it in to be looked at. GunHugger, the S&W's were over $400 when I bought this. Hey, I have not had to ever get one looked at in my life. That's pretty good.
