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.

Many of the shotguns in Mossberg's "Special Purpose" line are notable for their practical defining features. The draw of the Persuader is its simplicity. The Mossberg 500SP Persuader is a 20-gauge, pump-action shotgun that features an 18.5-inch barrel and an overall length of 38.5 inches. Chambered for both 2.75- and 3-inch shotshells, the magazine tube has a 6-shot capacity that is more than enough to get the job done. Other features include a gold bead front sight, an ambidextrous thumb safety and a pistol grip kit.
At the heart of the Mossberg 500SP Persuader, however, lies the legendary Mossberg 500 receiver. With origins in the 1960s, the Mossberg 500 is a series of shotguns that represented a range of varying hammerless, pump-action shotguns, all of which feature the same receiver. The 500 series is also 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.
All in all, the Mossberg 500SP Persuader is a wonderful shotgun that provides accuracy, reliability and just about anything else you could ask for Consider the 500PS Persuader for:
