Mossberg Adds New Optic-Ready 500 and 835 Pump-Actions Shotguns to Their Turkey Line
Mossberg shotguns are synonymous with turkey hunting for a reason. They offer prominent sights for quick target acquisition, barrels and turkey chokes that provide tight, consistent patterning, and a variety of matte and camouflage finishes to match your terrain.
Mossberg has added optic-ready versions of their venerable 500 and 835 Ulti-Mag® pump actions to their extensive line of turkey shotguns. These hard-working, tom-thumping shotguns feature receiver cuts for low-profile, direct mounting of microdot sights (Shield RMSc pattern) and are fully camouflaged in one of the hottest throwback patterns, Mossy Oak® Greenleaf™. The 500 Turkey Optic-Ready is available in 410 bore and 20 gauge and the 835 Ulti-Mag Turkey Optic-Ready is a 12 gauge, 3.5-inch platform.
Mossberg’s pump-action shotguns have set the standard for reliability, durability, and effectiveness in the field for over 50 years. Design features include non-binding twin action bars; dual extractors; a positive steel-to-steel lock-up; anti-jam elevator; anodized aluminum receiver; and universally recognized, ambidextrous top-mounted safety. These optic-ready turkey guns come standard with extended choke tubes; fiber optic front sight; drilled and tapped receiver for added versatility; sling swivel studs; 5+1 shell capacity; and installed cover plate for when a mounted optic is not used.
Mossy Oak camouflage is recognized by turkey hunters across the country for their superior patterns that blend in naturally with the terrain, regardless of where you are hunting. Their Greenleaf pattern offers silhouette concealment with its blend of dirt, bark, moss, and oak sapling elements for early season to late spring hunts.
