Since 1919, Mossberg has been the leader in introducing important design breakthroughs to the firearm industry. Many product features pioneered by Mossberg are now the standards by which all modern shotguns and firearms are judged. Mossberg's design and innovative edge is truly changing the way shooters use shotguns and rifles. Mossberg pump shotguns are the only shotguns purchased by the United States government that meet or exceed Mil-S-3443 specifications. It is this basis of unquestionable quality that drives Mossberg to bring reliable, well-built shooting systems to you at an affordable price.
This was my first gun and it is great. I like it because its kind of small and that makes it easy for me to handle. Really fun to shoot at the range. Got it for turkey and home defence. 500 bantam is great for younger people just learning how to shoot and is a great first gun like my self. I wouldnt trade my mossberg for anything. And will have it for life. Fired close to 100 Rds threw it and had no problems. my next shotgun will be a mossberg and thats for sure. I have nothing bad to say about this gun. When I get used to this one Im going to get a 12 gauge 500 and cant wait. You cant go wrong with mossberg. I hope this review helped you and if it did you will know the choice to make like I did. - J. F.
This was my first Mossberg, and I am very happy with this weapon. It was reasonbly priced, a very good value. It shoots very well. Although the recoil is in-line with all 12 gauges, the recoil pad and the ported barrel make this powerful weapon, quite tame. I am a satisfied owner who will be looking to the Mossberg brand for any of my future shotgun desires. Looking for a quality, well built, beautifully crafted shotgun, you will be hard pressed to find a better bang for the buck!!! Thank you O.F. Mossberg Co. for a wonderful package. This weapon is also very easy to accessorize as well. I also purchased an extra barrel in 18.5" as well as a folding stock pistol grip for when I use it as a security weapon. Great gun!!! Even better VALUE!!!! - T. L.
This is one of the coolest and most reliable pump action tactical/home-D shotguns currently on the market. Durable Mossberg made-in-USA construction and design. Great swing balance and you can't beat the dual extractors for reliability, a 9-shot capacity to take care of business and that durable marinecote finish to keep this weapon looking and working good for a long time. The 10-year warranty is another plus that shows how Mossberg really stands behind their products. This shotgun is worth every penny. - J. R.
I bought this gun on Jan. 1st 2010. It was the first gun I bought and it shoots up to 3 1/2 in shells. This is not a gun a first time shooter should buy because of the recoil but it is a good gun and it barely has any jamming. This is my favorite shotgun. - A. B.
