Hi everyone,
Just to give everyone a heads up, I went to Big 5 today and asked when is the next time they will have the Mossbery 500 combo on sale again and the manager told me it should be within the next week or two.

whats the combo?

Mossberg 500 with 18" and 28" bbl. They have them on sale every month or so. I've seen it as low as $189, but I think the normal sale price is $249.

Most likely the 18" and 28" vent ribbed barrel combo Mossberg.
Pretty decent.
It's easy to change out the barrels.
Put the 18" on and you're ready for home defense.
Put the 28" barrel on and you're ready for hunting and shooting clays.
Basically, two shotguns in one.:D

In my experience you can haggle with the guys at Big 5 on their gun prices. Every time I've done that they've given me the last sale price on it.

The last price I remember is 239.00 for the Mossberg 500 combo.
Great price for a versatile proven shotgun.

just ask... it's that easy.

ask if thats the best price that they can give you.
most people will at least give you 10-15% off of the normal price

I got the "last sale price" on the 870 Security model a few months back at the local Big 5. All I did was ask for it...

I'm sure it helped that I knew there had recently been a sale on the item, but as it turned what I thought was the sale price and the price I asked for was higher than the actual sale price. The Asst Mgr told me what the real sale price was and agreed to sell it for that.

Big 5 doesn't always have the best selection of guns, but they often have good prices on what they carry a lot of... though not on M1 Carbines!!! Also tough to beat their sale prices on 12 ga. field loads.

Yea I missed out on this deal, and came in 2 days after the sale! He told me they go on sale regularly throughout the year and to check back in a few weeks. So I plan on getting this model!!! =)

You COULD shoot clays with it, but its not even close to optimal, for clays you really want to look for a 28" barrel. I've shot trap with a 20" 20 gauge, but it's a challenge.

I have gotten sale prices on items when not on sale at Big5 a few times. Ask for a manager and a sale price.

From what I read, no personal experince but the Charles Daly shotguns aren't that great. You can do a search and I am sure you will find tons of info

Just a heads up.

Does anyone know the actual Name for this package, I was looking for it else where and cannot locate any with the combo barrel system.

Thanks

It is just called the combo. I'll attach an ad scan (image quality is not the greatest but you can get the idea). The ad is from about a few weeks ago. The combo has also been $259 a while back when they had it on sale at the same time as the Security shotgun. I think $249 has been the typical ad price for a while. They were down to $219 a couple of times around the holidays (once with a rebate, I dunno about the second time).

Big 5 has a website where you can see all the current flyers (http://www.big5sportinggoods.com/) for your store:

Check it every week, and you'll eventually see the combo come up for sale.

I can't decide between this Mossy at this price with BOTH barrels or holding out for a good deal on an 870...The Mossy is a solid shotgun, I know, but the 870...well, it's an 870, nuff said!

What do you guys think?

I used to think the same thing then I bought the Mossy 500 since it has better options (tapped upper reciever, can hold more shells) and never looked back. I still like my 870 however.

Mossberg 500 is better for leftys like myself since the safety is in the middle back. 870 always feels smooth racking the slide but I've never had any problems with my 500.

Does anyone know when the last time the 590 8+1 Mossberg http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=98592245 was on sale at Big 5 and what was it selling for?

Thanks

Mossy 500 cobo is a great deal, I bought one in 1996 and shot it so hard with the short barrell it glowed red on the end and warped slightly shooting clays. The barrell returned "true" and works like a charm. I have almost every tactical shotgun out there and for the money the 500 is great espec. when you get the 28" included. I have somewhere between 8500-9000 rounds through mine no probs at all. It was just scary seeing a barrell glow and tweak to the right. But all in all today I blast squirrells back in there hole at 40 yards no prob.

I just had that coupn sent to me and it's not valid for firearms or licenses. Guess I'll just have to use it for ammo.

Sorry :(. I can tell you that it was in the weekly ad that expired on April 27th. Maybe that can get you somewhere. Do they keep any copies of the old ads lying around at your store? Know any friends who get the Sunday paper and keep a fire hazard pile of it in their garage?
