Default chokes

Just picked up a used mossy 500a yesterday. Pretty happy about it, but it didn't come with any chokes. Anyone know where I can get the accuchokes or other that will fit a500 for a good price?

And any other suggestions for what to get for it would be appreciated

Your options are close to endless. I find no reason for a choke. I have dropped pheasants at 30 yards with the slugger barrel and I have no issue shooting Skeet with the long barrel.

Make sure you don't shoot it without a choke in it because it will ruin the threads in the barrel

Are you sure it's threaded for chokes? The 500 has been around a lot longer than choke tubes.

Positive. Guy I got it from said it was the accuchokes system and its got modified on it right now, but he's lost the others over the course of time. Would like to start shooting Skeet and trap though

Okay. WalMarts around here have some, as does Dicks, Cabelas, and Bass Pro. Go to Carlson's and check the interchange chart.
