    How rare are the all stainless Mossberg 500’s? Not the marinecoat versions,but the all stainless versions? And what years were these made?

    We had a member ask the same thing a few years ago. The answer we got from Mossberg was that it is not stainless steel, it is a highly polished marinecoat.

    590 marine cote made since 1988.
    First finishes were high polished and looked like stainless. By 1992, they had dulled it down to a satin finish, still silver, and today the finish is almost a dull matte gray - the users didn't want the glare off the high polish finish so Mossberg adjusted.
    None made with stainless, but that first finish looks that way and confuses many

    What is your serial number?

    The barrels and heat shields are stainless.
