Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association
HB2011 and HB1243 Updates

So far, there hasn't been a 2nd Consideration vote on either of these bills. WE NEED TO KEEP UP THE PRESSURE, and continue to contact our legislators - ask them to tell House leadership to bring these bills to a vote! Ask them to vote YES on HB2011, and NO on the Universal Background Check amendment. In addition, the FOAC is requesting support for an amendment proposed to HB1243 (Mental Health Records for Firearms Purchases) that, if passed, will allow HB1243 to restore firearm rights to those who have recovered from a mental illness.

Default Question on value of a Mossberg 500 AG

Hello all,

a co-worker has a Mossberg 12 gauge 500 AG that hes looking to sell me. He said hes owned it since the late 80's or early 90's (he wasn't sure) , and has only took it out shooting clays once.

he dug it out of his closet and the stock is in good shape, no major scratches or dings in it. The barrel has a few small surface rust spots, but it isn't to bad either.

It has a fixed mod choke (not the removable type) and is chambered for 2 3/4 - 3" shells.

I have three questions.

1- How much is it worth? I tried to do some research online and it seems like they go for around $150 - 200, but how much should i offer? I don't want to over pay, but this is a friend so i don't want to under pay either.

2- is this gun a better buy than the mavrick 88 (walmart special) i've seen them for $180 on sale.

3- Will i have a hard time finding a slug barrel for either the mavrick or the 500 ag?

If you can answer any of these q's id be grateful!

Thanks!

~Garrick

1: Tell him what you found and let him set the price, you may get a steal.

2: Yes, even at $200

3: No.


Let us know how you made out.

Don't mean to threadjack, but what is the difference between the 500A and the 500AG?

I wasn't able to find out the difference myself. About all i could figure was that the AG was an older model, but im not completly sure.

These shotguns were selling for $119 in the early 80's and could be had on sale for $99. Into the mid-80's they were no longer going on sale for the 99 price and moved up to a sale price of $119. It's only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. I thought the new mossy 500 were going for $199. Just sayin.

I seriously doubt youll be able to find a Mossy 500 for two bills. I havent priced them lately, but the way things are I would venture a guess at $300ish for a plane jane 500.
