I just picked up a new Mossberg 500, and a few things seem odd... I got a 6 shot with an 18" plain bead barrel, parkerized. It seems to have a sporting forend rather than a tactical model that I expected. It also doesn't have an action tube, just action bars pinned to the forend. It kinda looks like someone took a tactical model and put field stocks on it, or took a field model and put a short barrel on it.. They don't make parkerized field models, do they?
