Featuring a nickel-plated receiver highlighted in 24 karat gold, O.F. Mossberg & Sons is celebrating their 100th Anniversary in style with a limited edition Model 500 Centennial.
While the company originally started in 1919 with the Brownie pistol, Mossberg has been making the Model 500 since 1960 and has sold more than 12 million of the now-classic pump-action shotgun over the years. The Centennial edition of the gun, available in 12 gauge only, will be limited to just 750 examples.
Using a polished 28-inch vent rib barrel with a 3-inch chamber, the commemorative features engraving with the Mossberg 100th Anniversary logo on the right side and a pair of flushing ruffed grouse on the left. The furniture is a high gloss walnut with fine checkering and a red recoil pad on the butt.
The Mossberg 500 Centennial has a 5+1 shell capacity, runs 47.5-inches long, and weighs 7.5-pounds.
The gun uses Mossberg’s Accu-Choke system and comes with three tubes– Full, Modified and Improved Cylinder. It has twin bead sights along the top of the rib.
