This is my Mossberg 500 Cruiser chambered in 12 gauge.




The 500 series comprises widely varying models of hammerless, pump action repeaters, all of which share the same basic receiver and action, but differ in bore size, barrel length, choke options, magazine capacity, and "furniture" ( stock and forearm) materials.

I have liked Mossbergs ever since I bought my first Glenfield in about 1978 from Monkey Wards. I plan to get a .410 pump someday just because I want one. They're good guns, and not just for the money.

I like Mossburgs.

I've recently owned 2.
One was a Maverick 88 which I gave to my granddaughter and here husband as an urban HD weapon. It is a 20 ga. with 3 barrels. The standard choke tube barrel, an 18.5" riot barrel and a rifled slug barrel. That should cover most of their needs. They live in a suburb of a large city and in an apartment building for now so I gave them a box of #5 Turkey Loads. Less chance of collateral damage and yet, at 25', should be effective.

The other one is my wife's HD go to. It's a 500 Bantam youth model 410. I have a variety of loads for it. Everything from OOO Buck, #4 Buck, 1/5 oz. Slugs, 1/4 oz Sabots and some Bird Shot Shells. I'm thinking of buying some Winchester PDX1 ammo for it also. I have the original Full Choke Barrel as well as an 18.5" Riot Barrel. She really likes that little gun and feels very comfortable using it.

Very nice M9 Bayonet. Ontario makes quality knives. Attractive addition to the Mossy.
I see the oval cut in the knife blade. Does that connect to the sheath to make a wire cutter???? Curious minds need to know.

Yes sir...added to the nub on the sheath, the bayonet does make it a functional wire cutter.
