    All three are just about the same shotgun.....all durable,,,,,,,all reliable,,,,,all as comfortable as a shotgun can get.
    The New Haven 600 isen't made anymore.

    All have interchangeable parts.
    Not much difference.
    Any of these 3 will serve you well.

    I'd say the least expensive one of the bunch is the best! ;)

    Some of the New Haven model 500 have a c-lectic (poly choke) affixed to the front of the barrel. Some also have only one action bar on the pump.
    I know because I own one. If you purchase the Western Auto version you will become friends with Mr. Vic Havlin for all things Antique Mossberg. These guns were made long ago in a galaxy far, far away...

    Mr. Vic is a stand up guy!

    For what it's worth My shotgun which I refer to as a Mossberg model-500 is actually a Newhaven Model 600, I bought it used in March or April 1984 for $109. I keep using it though I've since bought two Remington 870's, one of which I dumped a ton of money into, and now I'm belatedly putting money into it I'm looking to put a cantilever Fully rifled slug barrel on it to make it the equal of my 870 Express that I lavished so much attention on in the late 80's (Hastings rifled barrel, Trap-style butt stock and an Aimpoint), I have several Spare Aimpoint scopes and as a fast working tool for killing deer you will be hard pressed to build anything more effective than a Red-dot sighed 12Ga Sabot slug thrower

    But my New Haven 600AT came with a plain, non-ribbed 30" full choke barrel, it does have dual action bars.
