Default Mossberg 9-Shot Persuader

Does anyone know if there are rifled slug barrels for the Mossberg 9-shot persuader (12-ga)? I see most replacement barrels are for the six shot versions. It would be great to have this weapon quickly convert from home defense to a hunting rifle.

I do not believe that there are any rifled barrels available for the Mossberg shotguns with the longer magazine tube. You would need to replace the mag tube along with the barrel.

hmm.. The Maverik 88 barrels could work, and then he could put a mag extender on couldn't he?

nevermind, he could just get the 6 shot, put on a rifled barrel and a mag extender.

Thanks.

Has anyone fired a rifled slug from the smooth bore .12 ga Persuader? What is the accuracy?

Edit - I just checked the Maverick site, I don't think they have what you need.

I have a Mossberg 500 with a smooth bore slug barrel. I can keep 5 rounds inside of a paper plate from 100 yards. Not rifle type accuracy, but good enough for most applications. At longer ranges, the single bead sight on the persuader will be the weak link.

I once shocked a clerk when he asked me once why I was buying so many slugs this was in nh he said you geting ready for hunting season I said no home defense . : ) I wish I could have took a picture the kid well the 18 yr old looked like he just crapped himself . I mean I don't know what he was worried about I am sure he was not going to be breaking into my house : ) some people think slugs are to much for home defense I don't know why and yes mine is a Mossberg and I got the 500 with the slug and hunting barrels that can change out love that gun. It came in an olive synthetic stock with mat black finish I wish they still made that stock combo although the mossy oak camo versions they have now are nice .

Default Olive M500 Stock

I believe that Havlin Sales has a stock very similar to the one that you are referring to. Go to the "Modern Shotgun Parts" page and scroll down to the bottom of the stock section.

How much is a barrel (less the magazine tube needed)? a hundred bucks maybe?
for another $150. you could pick up a whole new Mossberg 500 field shotgun, now you'd have two shotguns that's like getting the second shotgun for $150. even though you actually paid the $250. for it. Makes sense? The ideal thing would have been to purchase the field / home defense combo maybe, limits you to the five rounds for home defense but it comes with both a hunting long barrel and the home defense Persuader barrel. probably what I should have done, five rounds is sufficient for home defense, but then again having an extra round or two is comforting.

Mossy's shoot fine with slugs in Imp Cyl. barrels. With decent sights, they make a viable hunting shotgun for deer or bears. A rifled choke is better for accuracy with slugs but as a practical matter the standard barrel is fine.
