First and foremost, the 500 is built to the same uncompromising mil-specs as the renowned Mossberg 590. Then a host of features are introduced - Quiet Carry dual-action bars, 3" chambers and an ambidextrous safety, to name a few.
Some models also include factory-ported barrels; the industry's first fully-rifled slug barrel and our Trophy Slugster. A simple change of barrel and/or choke tubes is all that's required to take one shotgun from upland birds to waterfowl, to turkey, to deer.
To deliver the accuracy potential of modern sabot slugs, our 500 Slugster models feature fully-rifled, ported barrels with a variety of sighting options that include an integral cantilever scope mount base, and light-gathering adjustable fiber optic and traditional Williams rifle sights.
We have not tested this model, nor are we making any recommendations for or against it. We encourage our readers to fully research any equipment before purchasing and to consider this article only as a starting point in that research.
