Hi I'm new here,
I know nuttin about shotguns,
I just put a downpayment on a 500c No serial numbers, has the tapered fore-end
and the barrel is adjustable on the end,

1- its old and the finish is worn,
how do i re-finish the receiver?
the barrel i will rust-blue as the receiver is aluminum i won't be rust-bluing it,

2- do all 500 parts fit the 500c ? as i want to buy all the internal parts new to have on hand,
and would like to get a 18.5 barrel for it, would it be blasphemy to just cut down the barrel it has on it?

3-whats the good bad and ugly with these shotguns?

thank you
john

Hey Old Fart, welcome. 1, A lot of guys spray paint the receiver with high temp black BBQ paint. 2, No. 500A=12 ga. 500B=16 ga. 500C=20 ga. I would think you can buy an 18.5" barrel. I wouldn't cut the barrel, especially since it has the C-Lect choke. 3, These shotguns are very well built and dependable. Again, welcome {hs#

Leave it be. Bluing is optional and every 500 has a scratched up receiver. That's how we roll. :D
