New for 2019: Mossberg 500 Centennial Shotgun

posted on May 21, 2019

O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc. continues to celebrate the company’s 100th anniversary with the introduction of its new, limited-edition Mossberg 500 Centennial pump-action shotgun, chambered in 12 gauge. This beautiful commemorative model features a nickel-plated receiver engraved with the Mossberg 100th Anniversary logo on the right side and a pair of flushing ruffed grouse on the left, highlighted in gold. Limited to 750 units, each shotgun will have a special serial number that incorporates a unique prefix that is used only for this production run.

The Mossberg 500 platform has proven to be one of the most reliable shotgun designs available, with millions sold since the design's inception in 1960. The Centennial edition has upgrades such as a traditionally-styled, high-gloss walnut stock and fore-end with fine checkering on the pistol grip, wrapping around the underside of the fore-end and a classic red rubber recoil pad on the stock.  Distinctive jeweled bolt, gold-plated trigger and attractive high-polished blue metal finish on the barrel complement the high-gloss wood finish. The 28-inch vent-rib barrel comes with Mossberg’s interchangeable Accu-Set choke tubes (Full, Modified and Improved Cylinder), bead sights and accepts either 2.75-inch or 3-inch shells.
