You'll have to, as your imaginary Mossberg Lifetime warranty is just that. Whenever you buy the same thing over and over again, it is no one's bargain. I'm sorry for your plight.

You don't get to lie about lifetime warranties, you don't get to invent the Germans, using 870 Police Magnums, are "Expresses," you don't get to falsely claim that Remington is currently in bankruptcy, and you don't get to claim that Mossberg is thriving, when that clearly is not true.

Thats funny you calling me a liar. You think the germans are going to get wingmasters? It will just be a version of the express. Remington did go Bankrupt! I just sent my dads Country squire in to Mossberg to be repaired and there was no charge. He bought that gun in the 80s. How is Mossberg not doing well? Have they gone through Bankruptcy? Have they dropped there product line to 3 guns? Has there customer service fallen into the toilet? You can keep your head in the sand all you want. Maybe if more Remington fans were loyal like me they would not have had to go into Bankruptcy. Maybe if Remington had actually put out a good product people would have bought them. The Express 870 was only there to compete with mossberg! And with that I am out I don't need to spend anymore time on this subject. Maybe if Remington would have cared a little more about there customers it would have been better for them. You seem to like Mossberg products enough in your reviews. I guess just not here. Remington could learn from Mossberg because Mossberg has been as loyal to me as I have been to them.

You're extremely confused and, apparently, bewildered about the firearms industry. It is ridiculous, rude and wrong to assume that Remington employees somehow don't care, just because you feel the need to claim it. When Benelli, Franchi, Winchester, Colt, and Browning all changed hands, was that only because you imagine employees just didn't care?

It has been a challenging time for Beretta, Ruger, Browning, Federal, Savage Arms, Smith & Wesson . . . essentially, the entire gun industry.

What is wrong with you? You accuse me of lying when everything I said is verifiable! Then
I never once said anything about Remington employees. None of the companies you mention have anything to do with Mossberg and Remington. You can't even admit that Remington went Bankrupt. You are a ridiculous man who can't handle the truth unless it's your truth. I seriously think you might be a FUDD. You are narrow minded, and I apologize to the rest of the forum. I hate talking to Remington guys but sometimes you see something so stupid you need to say something. You can have your soapbox back now Randy.
P.S Browning is a brand not a company

Somebody pass the popcorn. Intriguing how inanimate objects can bring out such emotion.

That’s the problem with arguing on the internet. It’s hard to tell which one needs the help.

If I like something I like it. I've never been too concerned with what others think. My first car was a used 58 Edsel. A big joke to many but it ran great. 410 cubes 345hp with the police interceptor package. Blew the doors off many of the more accepted models. To my delight.

The greatest achievement of the internet is that it allows bald men to fight over combs with a ferocity seldom seen outside faculty politics.

That said, the 500 is the best beginner shotgun on the market today. It works, it lasts, and comes in a bunch of different configurations.

The Flex models in 12 and 20 with a couple extra buttstocks and pads, plus some form of comb riser and you can get just about any shooter off to a good start with a gun that fits ok. It's what I do at my range.

I just picked up this Mossberg 500AB 12 gauge, it has some wear but got it for $100. The action slide assembly. I ordered another one but won't be able to use the original wood forend cause the original is a 7 5/8" assembly and the only one I could find is a 6.75" so I'll have to find a smaller wood forend or get a Hogue.
All I know is that upon researching this shotguns serial # G22xxxx, it was made back in 1973, and has a jeweled bolt and carrier. The original barrel was in bad shape so I am in the process of hand sanding it and them polishing it and rebluing it.
I have has several newer 500 shotguns but the bolt is strange in this model, it doesn't have a firing pin spring. Also, there were metal bans around the magazine tube that were keeping the action assembly from being removed from the receiver of the shotgun.
