    Hey I haven't removed the stock on a mossberg 500 in a while. I do remember it requiring a long screw driver, which I need to buy a new one. Does anyone know how long of a driver i need? a 12" or longer? Also I can't remember if its phillips or a flat head.

    If memory serves me correctly... it's a flat head. A 12" screwdriver is plenty long. You could also use a 1/4" socket with an extension and a rachet.

    perfect, thanks for the responses. I should be taking that beast off a little later today.

    Edit:: Went to Home Depot and bought a 8" slotted. Worked perfectly.
