    I know very little about shotguns, and I am in interested in buying this gun. I have shot .410s and 20 gauges, so I am EXTREMELY comfortable with the caliber. I am going to use it for squirrel hunting with my uncle and grandfather (who use single shots), and I thought this seemed like the ultimate bang 4 my buck. I saw one in Walmart for $227, and it would be somewhere around $245.89 with tax. So I am just wondering how reliable of a weapon it is, and some info on the weight would be nice. Also, does it have any studs for mounting a sling, because I'll be carrying it through the woods for a couple if hours. I do know it has a 24" barrel, and is the full size version with a wood stock.

    No sling swivels, but there are slings that adapt to use it, can be found at walmart.

    The 500 is one of the most reliable and common guns on the market, and the 410 500 is very light and handy for a full size pump gun.

    Have fun!

    I have never tried the Mossy in .410, but i have been very happy with my 12 guage model. The single shots would be a bit lighter, but you would have faster follow-up shots. The Mossy's also a lot of aftermarket support like alternated furniture and such.

    The 500 does have a lot of aftermarket parts. But I see it for the 12 mostly and some 20 ga stuff. I'm sure a lot of things that are universal you cold make to work. But it all depends on the frame size. I would research all the differences first before you start changing stuff on that gun.

    I don't think I even care about the aftermarket parts. I think the gun just looks beautiful the way it is. But I might consider putting a shotgun scope on it. Wat exactly is the purpose of a scope though?

    Sweet, now all I have to do is buy a sling. And that makes sense.
