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.
Looks like a nice gun. I have had the pumps and they have been good guns. I would like to buy one of these in a 26 or 28 inch barrel if it is made. Mossberg has always been a very smooth and fast gun. Always dependable. - E. R.
