getting one today are them good guns the 500 A
It depends. I have several Mossberg Model 500 and 500A shotguns that I bought off used gun racks and they appear to be about the same. Any differences are minor and mostly cosmetic. The stocks and forearms seem to differ a bit, but nothing to write home about. All the best...
If the sliding safety is plastic, replace it with a metal one. Enjoy!!
I have 1 .410 2, 20s and a 12 I like them.
They rattle. They are scoffed at. And they will cycle and fire anything you feed them. Double extractors make them very, very reliable with even the crappiest of shells. If I had to stake my life on a shotgun, it would be in the 500 family.
The action gets harder to work when dirty. The plastic stock with 3" turkey loads will knock you good. It dies function good but the safety is a little stiff and more difficult to access with a scope.
An 870 will cycle smooth as silk no matter how dirty.
i bought it, its a 24"barrel it was a 8 shot, now its a 3 shot. very good gun went out in the fields and shot 27 pigeons, so fits well.thanks all
500A mossberg shotguns are they steel proof.
My owner's manual indicates you can shoot steel shot. Just don't shoot it through X-full or turkey chokes. You can find a manual on the Mossberg website.
Mossberg 500 shotguns.
D=28ga (never made)
My first 'real' firearm was a Mossberg 500 in 12 gauge that I got back in 1975; it had a 30" full choke barrel and one of my first purchases was a polychoke. Since that time I've taken ducks, geese, pheasants, rabbits, squirrels, crows........well, a truckload of small game! I've had to take it to the gunsmith a couple of times over the past 40 years, but it's still going strong and I still hunt with it.
