Mossberg Replacement Shotgun Barrels
Due to Mossberg’s customized barrels, it is possible to transform your Mossberg shotgun by simply replacing the barrel. A large variety of barrels are capable of satisfying many needs. The Mossberg 500, 835, 935 and Remington 870 shotguns are capable of interchangeable barrels. They are easy to use and have what is referred to as “out of the box setup”!
The Mossberg 500 and 835 Ventilated- Rib Field Barrel is one option. This barrel is only for 12 gauge shotguns. It has modified cylinder choke tubes. The modified choke tube has less restriction than a full choke. It is capable of accurate shooting at 40 yards and it has even been reported to keep a tight group at 50 yards. It is ideal for hunting waterfowl and trap shooting. For even less restriction an improved cylinder choke is also a possibility. This choke is also accurate at 40 yards, but instead of using approximately 60 percent of a shell’s pellets in a 30 inch circle, it only uses approximately 50 percent. Rifled slugs are often the slug of choice when using this barrel. The 500 barrels fit six-shot model 500‘s.
The Model 500, 835 and 935 Trophy Slugster Barrels or TS are another popular replacement barrel choice for 12 gauge shotguns. These barrels were designed to optimize accuracy. This barrel shoots 2 3/4 inch and 3 inch slugs. They have an integral scope base for mounting standard-eye-relief scopes andthe base accepts Weaver and similar style rings. However, sights are not typically included when replacement barrels are bought. (Another replacement barrel for the 935 is the 24 inch cantilever Trophy Slugster.)
Mossberg also manufactures a replacement barrel for Remington 870 shotguns. They are fully rifled and have adjustable sights. Most customers are surprised at how well the Mossberg finish matches the finish of their Remington. Some of the Mossberg replacement barrels for the Remington 870 feature a ported Door Breacher muzzle break.
Mossberg also offers a Scoped Combo replacement barrel. It is fully rifled for maximum slug accuracy. These barrels come equipped with a 3-9x40 scope pre- installed in Weaver-style rings and are laser bore sighted. It is ready out of the box! After simple installation, it is ready for business! There are 12-gauge models available for the Mossberg 835, 535 and 500 as well as the Remington 870. The 20-gauge model is available for the Mossberg 500.
