The Mossberg model 500 has never been as prestigious as the arch-competitor Remington 870, but it’s just as tried, and just as true. Here is a very attractive specimen of the 500 Slugster variant. Manufacturer, of course, is O.F. Mossberg & Sons of New Haven, CT. Model is 500 Slugster, Mossberg variant 54232. We are including an FM Brand Red and Green Dot, adjustable intensity Electronic Sight. Type is pump or slide action shotgun. Construction is steel barrel and working parts all built into an alloy receiver that undercuts the 870 on weight, with checkered surface walnut type finish hardwood stock and forend. Stock has a recoil absorbing polymer Monte Carlo cheekpiece that sets the shooter’s eye even with the scope. Finish is matching blue barrel and semi gloss black anodized receiver, and chrome plated bolt and shell carrier. Trigger group housing is high impact black polymer, with .292 gold plated trigger, set at a crisp 5 pound vicinity for accuracy. Safety is top tang type. Stock and barrel lug have QD swivel studs already installed. Barrel is 3 inch chambered blued steel 24 inch fluted, with 1:36 Right Hand 6 groove rifling. Muzzle measurement was a surprisingly tight .710. Rifled barrels are made for shooting slugs. They will function with lead shot, even buckshot, but do not give optimal patterns at all. Steel shot is harmful to the rifling and best avoided. Sight system is cantilever type, one piece with the barrel that sits above the receiver and accepts any standard Picatinny or Weaver type optics and mounts. Magazine capacity is 5 rounds of 2 3/4 inch shells, or 4 rounds of 3 inch shells, and the distinctive Mossberg adapter plug is included to bring a hunter in compliance with 2+1 shot regulations. Weight empty is 7 1/2 pounds, with center of gravity at the breech face. Buttstock measures 13 3/4 inches from the trigger face to the end of the 7/8 inch rubber factory recoil pad. Stock is raised level at the comb, and 2 1/2 inches drop at the butt, with a right hand cant of about 3/4 inch. Overall length is a quick handling 42.9 inches. This model 500 Slugster comes to us from Mossberg’s distribution system. It is what we call a factory demo, probably a sales rep’s sample or a showgirl at a Firearms Industry trade show. Surface detractions are negligible to minimal on this shotgun, as its photos show. We rate it as Excellent, perhaps Near Mint, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Often a person can spot the letter U stamped on the left side of the receiver above the serial number. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright and clean. This model 500 comes in a relabeled Mossberg Factory Box with factory lock, instruction manual, NSSF and NRA flyers. If this shotgun was test fired, it was fewer than 20 times. Sight is not just a Red Dot; it’s also a Green Dot. The power switch indicator allows the shooter to move the dial clockwise for red, with intensity calibration from One to Five level strength; or counterclockwise for Green. Tube is matte finished aircraft aluminum alloy, only 5 inches long; and counting the scope rings, it only adds 6 ounces to the weight of the shotgun or rifle. Brand is simply Famous Maker. Manufacturer is Jiaozuo Sanlida of Henan, People’s Republic of China, for a Midwestern US Importer. Lenses are 20mm Ruby coated with rubber flip-up covers included, as the photos show. This unit is powered by a CR-2032 Lithium Battery, included, and with replacements available most anywhere. Replacement pricing the Shotgun Alone, on mossberg com is well over $400 on this. We’re offering the Mossberg 500 Slugster in the photos, however, complete with an FM Red / Green Dot Sight for only $ 339.00. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> $20 flat fee lower 48 states; $60 Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, UPS Ground or USPS Priority with full insurance coverage.
