Looking for a shotgun? Now is the time to buy! With all of the attention on "assault weapons" and handguns, it seems like shotguns are they only firearms that are even somewhat available. But I would not expect that availability to last. Before long, it is going to be easier to find a dodo bird than it will be to find any sort of firearm available for purchase. So like I said, buy now. And what better choice is there than a brand new shotgun from Mossberg's legendary 500 Series? Keepshooting.com is proud to offer the Mossberg 500SP Persuader.
The Mossberg 500SP Persuader is a 12-gauge, pump-action shotgun with a 20-inch barrel and a fixed synthetic stock. Its three-inch chamber provides for the potential of a nine-shell capacity thanks to the extended magazine tube, but the real draw – aside from its proven military performance – is the fact that this no-frills shotgun is one of the most versatile firearms on the market. Whether you are searching for something to use while hunting, trap shooting or defending your home, the Mossberg 500SP Persuader is more than up to the task.
The Mossberg 500SP Persuader is now available from Keepshooting.com. Pick one up today for just $346.84.
Mossberg 500SP Persuader (20-Inch)
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 like the new Mossberg 500SP Persuader.
As one may guess based on its name, the Mossberg 500SP Persuader is a shotgun that traces its lineage all the way back to 1961 when the Mossberg 500 series made its debut. The Mossberg 500 series 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/fore-end 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 – often as the Model 590A1, which typically features an aluminum trigger guard and safety as well as a heavy barrel.
One of the greatest selling points for the Mossberg 500 series, which includes the Mossberg 500SP Persuader, 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 500SP Persuader – must-have qualities for any shotgun.
The Mossberg 500SP Persuader shotgun features a 20-inch barrel alongside an overall length of 41 inches. In addition to a full-length synthetic stock that boasts a 14 1/2 inch length of pull, the shotgun also includes a synthetic checkered grip and a cushioned rubber butt pad. If safety is a concern, you will be delighted to find that the 500SP Persuader also includes a receiver-mounted safety that is easily accessible by both left- and right-handed shooters. This is joined by the cocking indicator button, which allows you to visually verify whether or not the shotgun is cocked. A generous eight-shot capacity, which should be more than enough for any application, is made possible by the inclusion of an extended magazine tube. Also noteworthy is the front bead sight.
