Pretty slick slide release you got there Shoten. I would be interested in that for a 500 if I still had one and I wasn't left handed. That looks like it would be a little bit of a biter for us lefties. Still a cool concept though.

REMINGTON 870

Best shotgun for the money. Very rugged (the NEWER models are a hair finickey but they are slowly being fixed). 870's are very well known and parts can be found all over. The shell carrier is a bonus, unlike the 500 which does not have one. And remington has a Rem-Choke system which does not require changing of the barrels to change the choke.

Buy the best, the 870.

Shows you how on-top-of-it and pertinent defensive Remington owners' opinions are. NOT!

By the way, Remington customer service sends people TO MOSSBERG to buy barrels for their 870's. Hello!!! Even I replaced a Remington barrel on one of my 870 WingMaster's with a straight-rifled Hastings right after I replaced the broken firing pin...
Not only the C-Lect choke which was added to the line of shotguns in the 1950 model year, but also internally threaded screw on chokes which came to be in the 1940s. here are some catalog images of both. check out this site. you will find some Mossberg brand history here.

Edit: Oops, came out too small, and I can't enlarge them. Click on the link and them click on shotguns at the RH bottom of page. Go from there to catalogs. The evidence of the existence of interchangeable chokes is there. I also know that mossberg amd remington have interchangeable chokes, both then and now for the Mossbergs, because I own an 870, a 500, a 185-d, and a 185-ka. All of them have interchangeable or variable chokes.

I had a C-Lect choke. It is still out in the marsh with a couple of inches of the barrel that went with it. Mossberg did repair the gun, and I quickly sold it.
