I do not own a mossberg 500 but I know I would hate it because it does not have a shell carrier [elevator whatever] like the 870 does.

i really couldn't tell a huge difference in sound, but really the only way to for sure would be with a decibel meter to measure the sound. to me, they were both loud!

What would change the sound/volume?

i think he's refering to the length of the barrels, an 18.5" vs. a 28" barrel.

honestly without a decibel meter, i don't know if there is a difference in sound or not. but i am curious about it though.

The 18.5" would seem to be louder with the fire flying out of the muzzle. I know a 22 pistol is a lot louder than a 22 rifle. But we are comparing a 3" barrel to a 20" barrel with the 22 LR.

that i can agree with because i can tell the difference in sound when i shoot both, and that's also using the same ammo in both.

some of the differences would be the alloys used in the making of the barrel, the thickness, and the length of them. as the shot is going down the tube, varying harmonics and frequencies will be produced. Also the area where you are shooting, the surroundings can change the pitch of a sound, unless both guns are shot in the exact location.

i can agree with that and that does make a good point. just like the a rifle that is ported and one that isn't. the ported one will have a louder report than the unported one.

Yep, and just like instruments, like acoustic guitars, will have different tones due to their differences in wood density, etc. As do horns with diff lengths and shapes, etc.

Even a cloudy day compared to a sunny day, atmospheric pressure, and humidity will affect the sounds
