I've noticed the Mossberg 500SP model # 50521 on a number of internet gun vendors' websites. It seems to be priced quite a bit less than the other comparable Mossberg models. Does anyone know why this particular model is so much cheaper in price? Is it a stripped down model with fewer features or is it cheaper because it is a parkerized model? The Mossberg catalog wasn't any help...

You got me - the mossberg web site doesn't even show #50521 as a current model. Maybe that is why the good deal - old stock of a discontinued model?

You don't tell us much about it in your post such as how it is set up and price. Could you tell us more about it or provide some web links? If it is a great deal, some folks here might want to buy one.

New In Box. Part Number:50521


I just ordered one. The best I could tell, it's just the standard 500 in a parked finish. It also may have the longer forend?

Buds said they had plenty. I'm guessing it may have been a special order for Mil. or Police that changed their mind?

At $50 cheaper than the blued version, I figured I'd get one. I'll see what shows-up at my dealers next week.

BE CAREFUL: I noticed the description says parkarized, but the specifications say blue.

Make sure you check before you buy.

Picked it up today. It's basically a parkerized 500. Cheaper stock and forend than the normal 500. Stock is also 1/2 inch shorter than the standard. Came with PG, front swivel mount, manuel and lock. Receiver is also drilled and tapped for a rail. Not bad for the price.

It's just an M1 Garand canvas sling. You can find them at most gun shows for under $10.00. Cheaper than dirt also sells an original military tan version.

So the 50521 has the standard tactical forend or a longer field type forend on the 20ga models. The pictures are a little confusing. I want a 12 gauge but desire the longer forend.

The #50521 has the longer sporting forend that you like, sir. It is a pinned forend, so if you decide to upgrade to a Hogue forend, for example, you will also need to buy an action slide tube assembly.

I have the non-pinned sporting forends on my 835's and I like them. When pulled back, one will overlap about 1.75" of the front of the receiver, so a sidesaddle would have to be chosen accordingly. I do not like sidesaddles so it does not matter to me.

What makes the Stock and Forend cheaper than the normal (if their is a normal since there are so many varients) 500?

I recently bought the 50521. I bought it because it was $60 cheaper than the 50411 and had a parkerized barrel (which is usually an upgrade according to Mossberg).

I also like the look of the forend better than the "corn cobb" type and the recoil pad seems better on the 50521 than the 50411 since the 50411 is solid as opposed to "honeycombed".

So what makes the stock and forend better on the normal 500s? I know the 50521 forend is pinned like the Maverick 88 but besides the not being as easy to swap out, is it functionally inferior or less quality? Also the shoulder stock you say is shorter but what makes it inferior (besides shorter length which I and some others prefer for home defense)?

Not trying to start an argument. It's just that I am curious because I just bought the 50521 and it appears to me be superior to the 50411 imo (parkerized, better recoil pad, shorter shoulder stock, nicer looking forend). The only negative to some is the pinned forend (still can be swapped out for a little more money do to more parts) BUT shouldn't be a problem if you are not going to swap out like myself.
