For more than a decade, the Mossberg 500 pump-action shotgun has served as one of the most practical starter shotguns ever made. Unequaled in practicality and loaded with custom-like features, 500 Bantam shotguns provide an affordable opportunity for beginning and growing shooters to get started with a safe and reliable shotgun. All 500 Bantam shotguns include special features, found only on these models including an EZ-reach forearm, shortened pistol grip, reduced length of pull, shortened barrels, and an easy-to-use top-mounted safety. A combination of dual extractors, twin action bars, positive steel-to-steel lock-up, and anti-jam elevator combine for reliable, smooth operation.
