O.F. Mossberg & Sons, more commonly known as Mossberg, is an American arms manufacturer that was founded in 1919 by Swedish-born Oscar Frederick Mossberg alongside his two sons. Mossberg came to the United States in 1886, where he worked in a bicycle factory owned by Iver Johnson. Though the company was founded on the Mossberg Brownie, a four-barreled handgun chambered in .22 LR, it is now known the world over for producing exceptional rifles and shotguns.
At the heart of the Mossberg 500 Tactical Tri-Rail lays the legendary Mossberg 500 receiver. With origins that date back to the 1960s, the Mossberg 500 is a series of shotguns that represents a range of varying hammerless, pump-action shotguns, all of which feature the same receiver. Variations were generally found in the barrel length, bore size, choke options, capacity, sights and stock/forend materials. The 500 series has always been marketed as multi-purpose shotguns designed for use in less-than-favorable conditions. As such, all Mossberg 500s feature interchangeable barrels, which provides for a number of different configurations that can quickly turn a 500 into a field gun, a slug gun, a defensive gun or a sport gun. Additionally, they are all easily disassembled to allow for easy cleaning and simple maintenance. The versatility of the line has even earned it a spot with military forces the world over.
One of the greatest selling points for the Mossberg 500 series, which includes the Mossberg 500 Tactical Tri-Rail, is the fact that they all boast Mil-Spec performance. The Mossberg 500 series is the only shotgun that has passed the United States Military's Mil-Spec 3443G standards, which just serves to illustrate the superior performance and reliability associated with the Mossberg 500 Tactical Tri-Rail.
As noted, the Mossberg 500 Tactical Tri-Rail is a 12-gauge, pump-action shotgun with a 3-inch chamber. The magazine tube has an 8-shot capacity when using 2.75-inch shotshells. The shotgun also features a 20-inch barrel and an overall length of 39.25 inches. Easily manageable, the 500 Tactical Tri-Rail weighs in at just 7 pounds. Other features include an ambidextrous thumb safety, ghost-ring sights, a six-position adjustable stock and a forend equipped with three MIL-STD 1913 rails, which provide you with the ability to mount lights, lasers, grips and other tactical equipment.
As you can see, the Mossberg 500 Tactical Tri-Rail is no joke. So stop fooling around and buy one already. This shogun is a great choice for:
- Home defense and personal protection
- Sport shooting
- Much more…
The Mossberg 500 Tactical Tri-Rail is now available for $456.35.
