Picked up a Mossberg 500 Deer and Field combo figuring with all the hype of the 500 being as modular as a ar15 I could build it over time to a good all around Hunting/Home Defense tool , Bought the 18.5 security barrel for home defense.
Picked up a Streamlight forend , Ammo saddle , Vickers Sling , XS Big Dot front sight , Ghost rear ,
Sat down watched several videos on the disassembly of the 500 and found none of the videos matched what I had
Did some internet checking and found this
Don’t know how many are on the market
If I had known what I know now, It would be still sitting on the shelf
The replacement parts are in route. So just a little set back.
Just hope this helps someone thinking of the same budget build down the road thinking they are getting a good foundation.
As they say Buyer Beware
Even with big companies, Can’t say this one’s reputable any more
