So want to do someone hunting here in September so went out and bought this New toy. Now my question is for the Mossberg 500 it is stamped modified choke does this mean no choke is needed, as I see no threads for a choke.

cant tell from the picture if it has had screw in choke tubes added since the barrel was manufactured but a modified choke is a good all around choke for birdshot.

Mossy 500 is a great all around shotgun. Especially if you buy the combo deal that comes with 2 barrels. Even with the 26 or 28 inch fixed modified choke its all around general purpose. Shoots buckshot with tighter patterns

So can you turn this standard 500 into some tacti-cool or does this setup not allow it.

You can make a plug out of a pencil, but when the game warden checks it and it falls out of the gun, he will write you a nice fine that will likely cost many times what a factory plug costs. Dont ask how I know this.........
