    Hey guys,

    There is a fellow that lives in Michigan, who is interested in some of the snakes I am selling, and we might work out a trade.

    Iv'e been wanting to get my foot in the tacticool door:cool:, and he offered a brand new Mossberg 500 tactical.

    I looked around on GB, but prices were all over, and if i'm not mistaken, generally guns are overpriced there anyway?

    I'm guessing the gun is worth somewhere around $300-350? :dunno:

    Thanks,

    Andy

    $350 + whatever the M4 stock is worth to you. Personally I'd rather have a speedfeed.

    If it is the original stock then its ATI crap that isn't worth anything.

    actually, just got a picture from the fellow,

    *photo moved to OP*

    so its not quite so exciting..

    I tried looking it up "500 tactical" as he called it, and when i looked it up on mossberg's site it had the heat shield and the m4 stock, and a shorter shell tube.


    It looks like a mosbberg 500 persuader/cruiser(?)

    Any idea what its worth? still around $350?

    It is a tactical model, just not one of the super fancy ones. Looks like a 20" barrel with 8+1 capacity. Local stores here sell it for around $330. Trade value would be $350.

    How is trade value going to be more than retail cost? :dunno:

    Go with the standard butt stock, replace the pistol grip as one cannot reach the safety on a Mossberg when using a pistol grip.

    With the long magazine one cannot use/find anything but a slug barrel and a open choke barrel.

    Ive got a 500ab with has a adjustable choke for hunting, so i'm not worried about an open choke barrel.

    turns out it does come with a standard butt stock. The pistol grip is is just a pistol grip, not a butt stock with pistol grip.

    Guns vs. Snakes. I'd go with the Mossberg.

    i would say that gun in the picture is worth around $300. I saw a bunch of those same guns at a gun show last weekend. Of course you would have to include the background checks and transfer fees so $350 isn't too crazy. Anymore than $350 and i'd say your getting suckered. I actually picked up a mossberg 500 mariner for $400 at that same show. with the fees and background checks i paid $440 out the door.

    good luck man
