From hunting to shaping wars as the M97 Trench Shotgun did, these BB-blasters have shaped their way into history.

I made a list of a variety of shotguns that our world has seen over decades. Go and vote for which should be considered the best shotgun of all time!

#1 Mossberg 500

Is there really any arguing that the Mossberg 500 is the rival to the Remington 870. Much like the old pickup truck debate, many feel they are extremely similar yet are ready to take their preference to the grave. What cannot be argued however, is how widely popular the Mossberg 500 is.

#2 Remington 870

If the Model 870™ were introduced today, it would be hailed as a major advance in pump-action shotgun design - the ultimate in strength, durability, silky-smooth bind-free action, and sleek classical lines.

Yet this remarkable shotgun has been around for more than half a century, and has become the best-selling shotgun of any type in history, with over 11 million made.

As one of the most popular shotguns of all time, the Model 870 is offered in dozens of configurations to suite hundreds of applications.

#3 Winchester Model 12

Popularly named the Perfect Repeater at its introduction, it largely set the standard for pump action shotguns over its 51-year high-rate production life. From August 1912 until first discontinued by Winchester in May 1964, nearly two million Model 12 shotguns were produced in various grades and barrel lengths. Initially chambered for 20 gauge only, the 12 and 16 gauge versions came out in 1913 (first listed in the 1914 catalogs), and the 28 gauge version came out in 1934. A .410 version was never produced; instead, a scaled-down version of the Model 12 known as the Model 42, directly derived from scaled drawings of the Model 12, was produced in .410.

#4 Remington 1100

You'd be hard pressed to go on a bird hunt and not come across a handful of hunters who swear by their Remington 1100. 

It was the first auto-loader to combine the repeat-shot versatility of early-century models with the sleek, modern lines and handling qualities of revered double barrels.

#5 Benelli Super Black Eagle 3

As a kid, I would longingly look at these in gun stores wishing one day I could own such a gorgeous firearm. Used by sportsmen and law enforcement agencies alike, there is no denying the place of the Benelli in the world of shotguns.
