Even with a new iteration of the shotgun, you can’t say much about the Mossberg 500 that hasn’t already been said. Well, it’s possible to squeeze a little extra verbiage in about this one … it’s a looker!

Nickel-plated receiver, jeweled bolt, gold-plated trigger, high-polished blued metal finish on the barrel and high-gloss finished walnut – all stops were pulled for the Mossberg 500 Centennial 12 Gauge. On top of that there’s plenty of engraving, always a nice touch on a field shotgun. This includes Mossberg's 100th Anniversary logo on the right side and a flushing ruff grouse on the left, each accented with 24-karat gold. Plenty of bling for a scattergun with an MSRP of $910.
