Mossberg's 500 pump-action shotguns offer an amazing amount of gun for an unbeatable price. Its performance in the field goes a long way in cementing its reputation with millions of hunters. 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 one shotgun from upland birds to waterfowl, to turkey, to deer. The 550 is version of the 500 that was made available in department stores. This shotgun features a 24-inch smoothbore barrel, a folding leaf rear sight, a Weaver-style scope-mounting base, a tang-mounted safety, and a fixed improved cylinder choke. Its wood, metal, and bore are all in good condition.
