About Mossberg 500 Shotguns
Featured in American Rifleman magazine. "Mossberg's Model 500 pump-action shotgun is a very popular arm, due not doubt to its well-balanced combination of affordability and quality. The modular nature of the Model 500 product line certainly helps its popularity, and a dizzying number of barrel and stock options allow users to make any single Model 500 into either a pistol-gripped cruiser model or a 28-inch-barreled bird gun by simply switching out a few parts."
"The Mossberg 500 utilizes an aluminum receiver to reduce weight. Housed inside the Model 500's bolt is a steel bolt lock that engages a recess in its steel barrel extension for steel-on-steel lock up."
"Barrels are interchangeable within specific gauges and have been produced with and without ventilated ribs; open sights, bead sights and integral scope bases, in lengths from 18.5 inches to 32 inches; C-Lect-Chokes and provision for screw-in Accu-Choke; smooth or rifled bores and even a .50 cal. rifled muzzleloading version.
