    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.

    What kind of problems are you having with 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.
