Well, since the Mossberg company is alive and well, best route will be to contact their customer service dept through their website.

VERY COOL! Mine is so old that the factory barrel came in "modified choke" with no option to change that other than by changing the barrel (no screw-in chokes).

500's haven't really changed in the 52 some years they've been around. Most parts should still work. Like what everyone else said though, we need pics. TBH you shouldn't have to replace too many parts. Maybe just a good refinish of the bluing and wood.

Choke tubes, for the most part, have only been around since the 80s. Mossberg has been around well before that.
