Mossberg's 500 pump-action shotguns offer an amazing amount of gun for an unbeatable price. First and foremost, the 500 is built to the same uncompromising mil-specs as the renowned Mossberg 590. Then a host of features are introduced: Quiet Carry dual-action bars, 3" chambers, and an ambidextrous safety, to name a few. A simple change of barrel and/or choke tubes is all that's required to take this single shotgun from upland birds to waterfowl, turkey, or deer. Mossberg's new Recoil Reduction System features a unique Dual-Comb (low and high profile inserts) stock design incorporating Mathews Harmonic Damper Technology combined with a newly re-engineered thermoplastic elastomer recoil pad. The result is up to 20% reduction in felt recoil and added comfort in the field or at the range. This combo includes: a 28" ported field barrel; a 24" ported, fully-rifled Slugster barrel; and a deluxe recoil pad.
