New or used? If $350 was a second hand price I'd say that's a bit high. For new in the box it's an okay price.

Their "Cruiser" model normally comes with a pistol grip. The "Persuader" is the same gun but with a standard stock which is what this looks like. They make "Cruiser/Persuader" models that come with both the pistol grip and the regular stock.

I wasn't aware that they were shipping any 500s with a heat shield over the barrel, I thought those were OEM on the 590 only.

That little loop on the front end of the barrel nut under the muzzle, is for hanging a sling swivel onto. I don't see a stud on the underside of the stock, but there should be a hole to screw a stud into. With one of those in place you can mount a sling easily. There are many other sling options out there. Others will chime in, I'm sure, with options.

thankx. its new in box. yea i know the heat shield on it made me wonder even more. at first when i saw in on the wall i thought 590 all the way. sales guy said nope its a 500A. tactical.

so goole search i did and found a 590 on impactguns is a similar configuration. but nothing like what i have with shield and full lenth stock.

I believe a cruiser has a 5 shot tube 18.5 inch barrel, persuader has a 7, 20 in. barrel. Mne came with a heat sheild and knoxx pistol grip from the factory. recently removed the heat shield, wish I hadnt. them suckers get hot quick.

Mossberg is actually cataloging / marketing them in both barrel lengths these days. The differentiation between Cruiser and Persuader is pistol grip vs. full stock.

Factory heat shield not on a 590... another variation!!!! :)

a lefty shooting a R H shotgun is a good thing. Your tac reloads from a side saddle will be easier, and the slug change over drill will be also.

Nice mossy. I just DROS'd one just now. Now the longest wait starts. Hasn't even passed my 1st day jail and I'm already looking to buy accessories for it. Will be picking up a MT telescoping LEO stock today.

Question, those who's got this MT stock kit would you guys recommend the recoil reduction kit or will the regular stock kit suffice? Gun will mainly be a HD weapon, plus few range trips. Maybe some hunting here and there since it also came with the 28" VR barrel.

Mossbergs are the most left hand friendly shotguns. The main issue is the safety. Tang mounted safety is a lefties dream.
Enjoy your gun, get some training in the proper use of this weapons system.

Ahh. you are correct sir. I just checked out mossbergs website, HOLY MOLY, they got a lot of different crap now. I swear everything was named differently about 3 years ago.

does it enhance the gun or should i stay with the factory unit?

Take a look at the Hogue over-molded stock and forend....IMHO, they feel much better and look better than the factory pieces.

PG stocks don't work well on mossies.

i have a 590, went through that phase.....the problem lay in the placement of controls.

you have to let go in order to manipulate the safety and slide release.

the reason i wanted to change the stock in the first place is even though i have a 73inch arms span the stock unit was waaay to long of pull for me. i hope the 12 lop will be dead ball on. also my tactical vest has a thick pad on the shoulder area and the factory stock and vest pad made me feel like i had gator arms lol.

I have two 500s. One completely made in CT and the newer one only has the receiver made in CT (everything else in eagle pass TX where maverick shotguns are made)

The full CT ones are worth 350. The half CT ones go from 269-299


The right below the feedramp is where it will say where the receiver is made and the barrel will tell you where everything else is made

Both came with heatshields as thr OEM 500 series
