Mossberg® 500 Shotgun Combo
Mossvberg 500 Combo
I purchased this gun at Bass Pro in Gurnee, Illinois last year. The one I Purchased has the raised cheek piece which can be changed out and it has the Catiliver scope mount on it's slug barrel instead of the rifled sights. I thought it looked good in the ad so I paid in advance and ordered it. When it came in and I got it home I was disappointed. The foregrip is sloppy and the wood dowel that limits shots rattles in the magazine as well. Also the safety as well as the trigger guard is plastic. Mine when I got it had to go back for repairs. The foregrip had a 4 inch crack in it and the trigger guard had a piece broken out of it. So much for Mossberg's quality control. It took three weeks for me to get it repaired by Mossberg. This meant a total loss for the hunting season. I went though Brownell's and bought a metal trigger assembly as well as safety when I read blogs about the safety on the Mossberg's failing. I replaced them at a cost of an additional $125 myself. The foregrip that Mossberg sent me it back with was stained a different color so I had to mail it back again. The second time it was repaired right but they commented that I had voided my warranty by replacing the plastic with metal parts. If you buy one you will find out real quick that you will not need to care a deer rattle the gun is one. I wish I had never bought mine the best part of the gun is the NIkon 2x7 scope I put on it. I would not recommend this gun and I will never waste my cash on another one.

Just a good old Mossberg
Granted this gun is new, but, this is a great shotgun, Mossberg has, once again, not let me down. It is a very well built, rugged field shotgun with an excellent finish with exceptional functionality. Though personally, I expect nothing less from Mossberg. This is my second model 500. The first of which had over 100,000 rounds blown through it before it broke and it was built in 1966. By the end, it could only be fired as a single shot, I had worn the shell holders in the magazine to the point of being completely rounded so that they would no longer hold shells in the magazine. If this one lasts even half of that, I will be a very happy man. You can't go wrong with a good old mossberg shotgun.

This is my first shotgun and I'm very glad I bought it. I use it for turkey and grouse hunting and love it. I put a red dot scope on it for turkey hunting with and after market x full choke and have no plans of getting another turkey gun. I put the camo tape on it and it looks great.
