I have a Mossberg 535, basically a 500 with a 3 1/2 in. chamber, that gun will last forever if you take care of it (it wont take much care to keep it running). I dont have any advice because nothings ever happened to mine and I'm sure nothing major will happen to it. I have $400 invested in Mossberg Firearms with my two mossbergs,which sounds like not much but to me I better get what I pay for,rugged quality, dependablity, and value.(which mine have)


Congrats on the new shotgun for your son!!

Three buddies had them. They never had any trouble with them at all, although, I found that they thumped you pretty good. I'm sure your boy is going to enjoy it very much. :D

I've had a 500 for years and have put it through the ringer. It should last him for awhile.

I have heard many good comments about them but about the only thing on a negative note I ever heard is that they tend to loosen up a bit and rattle a little but they just keep rattling along.
