North Haven, CT –-(Ammoland.com)- The Mossberg 500 Pump-Action shotgun, introduced in 1961, is one of the world’s best-selling pump-actions and continues to be recognized for its reliability, versatility and affordability.
And with nearly ten million sold worldwide, the 500 is a true classic that will serve generations to come.
Now you can own a 500 Classic All-Purpose Field 12 gauge 3-inch gun, much like the original, with handsome high-gloss walnut stock and forend and other notable enhancements.
The field-proven 500 pump-action platform has non-binding twin action bars, positive steel-to-steel lock-up and anti-jam elevator for smooth, reliable operation; anodized aluminum receiver for added durability, yet less overall weight and better balance; versatile vent rib ACCU-CHOKE™ barrel; and universally-recognized, ambidextrous top-mounted safety. All features that are the backbone of the legendary 500 reputation.
The Mossberg 500 Classic shotgun features upgrades that distinguish this field gun from the extensive family of 500 special purpose guns. The traditionally-styled, high-gloss walnut stock and forend has fine checkering on the pistol grip and wrapping around the underside of the forend as well as a classic red recoil pad with white Pachmayr® line spacer. Distinctive jeweled bolt, gold trigger and attractive high polished blue metal finish complement the high gloss wood finish. The 28-inch vent rib barrel is ported to lessen felt recoil and reduce muzzle jump and comes with Mossberg’s interchangeable ACCU-CHOKE tubes (Full, Modified and Improved Cylinder).
