Mossberg 500 "Tactical"

Found a great deal on a Mossberg 500 Tactical, or what the ad is calling a "M500 Persuader"...

Gauge - 12
Chamber - 3 in.
Capacity - 8 shot
Barrel Type - Heat Shield
Barrel - 20 in.
Sight - ghost ring
Chokes - cylinder bore
Barrel Finish - matte blue
Stock Finish - black synthetic
Weight - 7 lbs.
Features dual extractors, positive steel-to-steel lockup, twin action bars, and an anti-jam elevator ensure smooth operation
Top mounted safety provides for ambidextrous operation

Anyone have any issues with this particular model? That barrel shroud?

Dead horse gun. Everyone has owned one of these or a Remington 870 for the last 60 years. Yes it's reliable. Only real issue is the safeties on some of them crack in use and that's why you can buy metal replacements for under $15.

Mossberg 500 has been my home defense shotgun for the past 20 years. I've tried all manner of "enhancements": folding AR style stock, pistol grip, Raptor grip, lights, lasers, red dots, etc., but I keep coming back to that same basic configuration because it works.
At the young age of five, a bear told me that I was the only person who could prevent forest fires. Why I was chosen, I'll never know.

A Mossberg 500 Tactical and an M500 Persuader are the same thing. Used to be that you could get one with a wood stock and phosphated metal that took an M-16 bayonet for riots too.
Spelling and grammar count!

A solid gun at a good price, I use a 500 as my garage shotgun and don't have any worries about it.
We know exactly where one cow with Mad-cow-disease is located, among the millions and millions of cows in America, but we haven't got a clue where thousands of illegal immigrants and terrorists are

I found a ATI 500 Tactical Cruiser @ my LGS. I traded 6 shot guns in various forms of repair & $150.00 dollars to buy it.I spent another $100.00 for a laser/ light combo. I bought one of those bore laser lights to sight it in for 25 feet (the longest shot from the bedroom).I found out without the laser you can miss when "shooting from the hip"!!!!
