mossberg model 500

  1. Shotgun Forum
    I've heard so much about how the Mossberg 590 is an improvement over the 500, in particular the "Persuader" model, which I currently have. The one thing I hear about most is that the 590 has a metal trigger guard as opposed to the plastic one on the 500. Well, I went to my local shop yesterday...

    Hey everyone Just picked up a Mossberg 500 at the Lakeland Gunshow in Florida yesterday. Came with an 18 inch barrel. I have the money to buy a longer barrel... but am unsure as to which length I should be buying, and why. I'm totally new to shotguns, so bear with me. I assume a longer...

The 1300 Defender was and is a great shotgun. The finish on it was a parkerized finish to where the Mossberg 500 I bought is a...

    This may seem to be knickpicking but it's rather bothersome to me. I have a Mossberg Persuader, when you throw the gun up to your shoulder, that butt recoil built in thingy is made of soft rubber like and it doesn't move around easily if you want to say, raise it up a little, friction like...

    Have a Mossberg 500A ... NOT sure the model ... I got it as a gift. Has 8 (or 9?) capacity, barrel is about 17" out of the reciever, has pistol grip, and a more "dark" appearance then a typical blueing. There is no changeable choke. Can this safely shoot a slug? If it were safe to shoot a...
