When was the 500B (16g) discontinued? I have owned 4 500A's over the years but never seen a 500B.
I know one of the members here has one.
I have a couple of 16's, which I love dearly, but I really don't know when Mossberg stopped making the 16 gauge variant. I would venture a guess around 1972.
I recently saw
Used Western Auto Revelation 16g Adjustable Choke
(Made by Mossberg) go for $105 on gunbroker.
That adjustable choke looks a lot like the one on my 16 pump. Except mine is also ported.
That's a really good price on that gun.
There is a 16g parts kit (everything minus the receiver) available. do the 16 and 12 share the same receiver?
Where is the kit at?
Far as I know, the receiver on both are the same, though I haven't been fortunate enough to pin one down side by side to see.
I found one! I got a Mossberg 500B 16g on the way. I'm very excited!
You lucky dog.
Where did you find it?
I will post some pix when I get it.
John A, I received the 500B. It is very nice, not perfect but as noted in the Gunbroker pix. Function is smooth and locks up tight. Ejects properly. Western North Carolina (where I live) has been hit with a lot of flooding and I have not had an opportunity to shoot it yet. I also have not took any pix yet but they are coming soon.
Glad you got it. My guess is that it'll serve you for a lifetime.
