The Mossberg 500 is an American pump-action shotgun introduced in 1961 and manufactured by O.F. Mossberg & Sons. With over 11 million shotguns produced, the Mossberg 500 series is one of the most prolific shotgun designs in history, with its main competitor being the equally prolific Remington 870. Originally only available with wood furniture, the Mossberg 500 is available in a variety of finishes and furniture options. The two most common models are the Field and Persuader shotguns. The Field model features a 28" barrel. The Persuader is the standard tactical and home defense model with a black synthetic buttstock and a black riot foregrip with either an 18.5" barrel or a 20" barrel. Mossberg also had a combat police model, the 500AT, which was not advertised for sale among sporting catalogs but was strictly aimed at police sales. However, many police trade-in 500ATs have since entered the consumer market.

Mossberg 590 with ghost ring sights, bayonet lug, and speedfeed stock - 12 gauge
Mossberg 590 Mariner - 12 gauge

The Mossberg 590 was introduced in 1987 (the same year as the Mossberg Mariner). The Mossberg 590 shotguns differ from the 500 series primarily because of the design of the cap for the shell tube. The 500 series shotguns are designed for easy swapping of barrels. The 590 magazine tube is designed for ease of cleaning and maintenance. The "nub" at the end of the 590's magazine tube was originally designed for holding the ring of the M7/M9 Bayonet when the bayonet is attached to the lug underneath the barrel. Other versions of the 590 maintain this style of end cap, even those without bayonet lugs.

The Mossberg 500 Cruiser is a Model 500 Shotgun with a factory pistol grip. Some have the heat shield and some don't. What's confusing is that the full stocked Mossberg 500 is called the Persuader, however, the Persuader always came with an optional pistol grip so that the user could swap stocks. Which is why we see shotguns identified as "Persuaders" with pistol grips, however, that is a modification made by the owner and not a factory configuration. All shotguns that came from the factory with pistol grips are "Cruisers". Not to be confused with Mossberg 590 Cruisers or 590 Compact Cruisers (see below).

Mossberg 590 Bullpup with 20" barrel and extended tube - 12 gauge

In 1985, Mossberg introduced a bullpup stock for the 500 series shotguns, which was available as either a kit (so that owners could convert their existing weapons) or as a complete gun. Due to the seemingly "futuristic" appearance of the Mossberg in this configuration, the 500 Bullpup was frequently used during the 1980s and 1990s in futuristic/sci-fi movies (most notably, RoboCop and The Running Man, among others).

The Mossberg Maverick 88 is a lower-cost version of the Mossberg 500 manufactured by the Mossberg company under its Maverick Arms name. These shotguns are assembled in Texas out of parts primarily manufactured in Mexico, contributing to its lower price point compared to the standard Mossberg 500. The Maverick 88 is virtually identical to the Mossberg 500, with many parts and accessories, save trigger groups, interchangeable on both guns. The most obvious difference is the location of the safety; the safety of the Maverick 88 is a crossbar located on the trigger guard, as opposed to the Mossberg 500's safety which is at the rear of the receiver. The Maverick 88 also does not include sling mounts.
