The Mossberg® 500® Combo offers hunters a versatile Pump-Action Shotgun, suited for hunting a wide range of game, including deer, waterfowl, upland birds, and turkey. The Combo pump shotgun comes with 1 vent-ribbed, smoothbore, ported barrel that accepts Accu-Set choke tubes and 1 fully rifled and ported barrel with rifle sights. Twin beads on the ribbed barrel provide quick sight acquisition. The 3" chamber functions with both 3" and 2-3/4" shells to enhance the 500's versatility for shooting a variety of loads. Dual action bars prevent binding and twisting while cycling the action, and a single, large locking lug locks the bolt into the barrel extension, ensuring a solid steel bolt-to-barrel connection. Dual extractors take a solid hold on the shell's rim for reliable extraction. The aluminum alloy receiver keeps weight down and resists corrosion. Hunters can reach the tang quickly with the thumb of either hand, making it naturally ambidextrous. The Mossberg 500 disassembles into sub-components for cleaning and maintenance by unscrewing the magazine cap (which stays on the barrel); the trigger assembly drops out easily with the removal of only 1 pin. For years, military, law enforcement, and hardcore hunters have chosen Mossberg pump shotguns for their simplistic design and reliability. The 500 Pump-Action Shotgun Combo has a hardwood buttstock and forearm and blued barrels. Comes with 3 Accu-Set screw-in choke tubes, a durable recoil pad, and sling swivel studs.
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.

Great First shotgun
Great gun over all! I was going to buy the rem 870 but than I went to bass pro and the 500 looked and was priced better! I have taken it duck, skeet and can shooting and not one problem! Would not trade it for anything!

It depend on what kind of slugs you are using and what kind of choke your barrel has, it has to be a fixed modified or less to fire a slug. This is due to the fact that a fixed modified choke has a bore diameter of .720" at the end and a foster slug. More commonly known as a rifled slug ( NOT SABOT SLUGS). In reality the sabot slugs would not harm the gun, they just wouldn't be accurate at all because they can't be spun around in a smooth bore barrel. A foster (rifled) slug has rifling on the slug itself allowing for the wind to stabilize the slug down range. The original slug barrels were smooth bore at .725", which is the diameter of a rifled slug. If you have interchangeable chokes, don't fire a rifled slug, you'll only accomplish blowing your gun up in your face.
Don't be fooled by the Remington followers. I have owned a Mossberg 500 for 40 years and it is great. It has never failed me. I just bought a 20 ga for mi wife. The Mossberg has better features than the Remington. The safety is located better and the slide release is also located better. Much easier to locate the safety when a bird takes off on the Mossberg than the Remington!
I have owned a Mossberg 500 for 40 years and I just bought another for my wife. They are a well made shotgun at this pricepoint. The Remington is also a good shotgun but I feel the Mossberg has better features! I have used mine for both slugs and shot and in 40 years it has never failed me!
I have owned many guns in my life and bought my first mossberg last year, it is the WORST gun I have ever owned. Buy a Remington, best gun for the money! If not, remember, you get what you pay for in guns!
