Default Mossberg 500a

Anyone know who can match, beat or come close to this price around here? I'm in Niceville but Pensacola is fine.

Thanks

I have a 500 that has some use on it, but runs like a sewing machine + has new Knox adjustable recoil absorbing stock and foregrip + 18 AND 28 inch barrels. With the Knox stock - you can empty the thing out as fast as you can pump ...still stay on target, AND not kill your shoulder.
Since i have my SAIGA 12 running good now, I don't think I'll ever shoot the 500 again. Its got some blueing missing on the receiver,but with all the add-ons I'd have to get $250 for it.....but that would still save you some $ + no transfer fee.....+ better and more hardware!
PM if intrested and I'll break out the camera.

Here are a couple of pics.
The 28 inch barrel is the original, the 18 which is installed in pic is new, only tested at range for pattern.
Knox Stock and forearm are new.
"custom" eyebolt for sling.
Hard to see in photos, but some stratches/missing bluing on receiver, and ammo tube, but this aint for lookin, its for shootin.

I really appreciate the offer but I'm going to hold off for the one that looks more like the tactical/heat shield etc. version on the site. I'm buying it with my son in mind also and he will like the other version more.

Good luck with selling it.

Ok. Your post just made me think that I might want to make some room in the ole gun safe.
Now that I've dusted it off, I'll probably throw it on the for sale section

No it was wood, and had a split in it.
I did want to mention that the new 500s have a forearm that is permanently attached to the link bars.....which means you cannot change the forearm like you can with the old ones.
If you want to change the fore grip on the new ones you will spend another $100 in parts .

Just talked myself out of a sale! Going back in the safe....I'll just have to buy a bigger safe!

Buds is hard to beat for price. Academy can be good but I never have much luck there...never in stock , can't tell you when it will be, and can't place orders....they would clean up if they could do those things!
