    Mossberg 500 pump action 12g

    Hi guys
    want to sell my Mossy 500 pump action shotgun in 12g.
    This ones a bit different . I have had it made from 4-5 other 500s that were in bits. The best bits were taken from each donor gun and put together. As a result it is very slick in the action and has some character as a couple of the parts have a jaded history. Looks a bit rough but again this was done on purpose and it has character.

    I just don't use it at all in despite being a hardcore varmint shooter. I have decided I don't like the recoil, noise and just not comfortable with the gun. Shotguns just aren't my thing.
    I won't post but for any one around central , southland ,Canterbury etc that want a good shotty and a work horse I am happy to meet up at a half way point.
    Comes with 2 and a half boxs of shells also.

    $350 cash / FAL rules apply.

    Any chance of some photos.
    What length of barrel does it have and is it the standard 5 shot one.

    When I say a bit rough I only mean not pristine as photo shows it's in fine condition .

    if recoil is the issue fill the buttstock cavity with fine lead shot..... my H&R has 11 oz up her butt and it sure tames the 3" steel loads,std lead fodder like falcon sp36 is a pleasure to shoot through it now.

    Hey Micky Duck, if I don't sell, trade or swap it I will keep that in mind. The recoils not bad, just the noise, all I shoot is suppressed stuff and I have just grown to hate the boom.
    Cheers for the advice.

    re the noise,the electronic ear muffs are awesome.I spent night spotlighting with mates all using shotguns and with volume set I could have normal conversation with driver and the booms above my head just got "clicked out" they perfect for my tired middle aged ears and sure make shotgunning more pleasant.

    Cheers Micky Duck, yeah that's an option for sure, any particular brand to look at ?. It is a cool shotgun and points well so may keep it if I don't sell or swap it .

    not sure really,mine were off $1 auction on trademe,if buying another set we will get stereo ones then I will be able to balance out my tired left ear and regain better directional hearing.at the moment wearing them I can pick up parrie duck calling from miles away but cant pick where they are,same goes for people talking 5-600 yards away.

    @viper Did you ever manage to sell this. Saw it on TM, but forgot all about it. I think I'm looking for a second/spare shotty, and just seeing whats out there
