I need the help of Mossberg experts... I have a Mossberg 500A Persuader 18.5" with black synthetic stock set. Great gun! Love it. But, I want to ditch the black plastic stocks and put on some nice looking wood. Is anyone here familiar enough with Mossberg variations to be able to tell me what to look for in finding a set of wood buttstock & forend which will fit my 500A Persuader? I get the impression that most any 500 buttstock will probably fit, but I think that there may be some variances in the various forends, so I'm more concerned with learning how to determine what forends will fit properly... My 500A Persuader is s/n R195854 and I'm guessing I bought it perhaps 7 to 9 years ago. Thanks for your help... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
