I found a used Ithaca M500 that feels good and seems to fit me.

My question is will I be able able to get it fixed if something goes wrong, since Ithaca/SKB don't make this gun anymore, or can I get spare parts for it through SKB?

Also, is this a good gun, and is it worth it to put choke tubes in it.

Check out the second question down on the page:

http://www.skbshotguns.com/FAQ.htm

I believe the chrome lined bore may make it difficult or at least more costly to have it fitted with choke tubes.

The skb 500 is a nice shotgun and I think a bargain for what they normally go for. The same topic came up here recently regarding choke tubes and I made the same assumption that it would be very difficult. Someone here who does them said that they use a carbide cutter to do the threads and charge about $10 more.
