Can you use a Mossberg 500 to shoot skeet?

You can shoot skeet, but not too far away with a smooth bore. The barrel on security models w/ extended mag. tubes is not interchangable with hunting models. (learned the hard way, even bought a new 24" barrel). The mag. tubes are pinned in on security models (mine is a 500A) as opposed to screwed in on hunting models. This is not listed in the books to order, nor do they tell you this when ordering unless you ask. I had my fav. gun shop / range order mine, and they were not informed when looking it up nor ordering. Use shorter shells for tighter patterns to get more distance.

Hi Sean, Sure you can use your 500. It might be fine just like it is too! I'd try it and see how you like it. You can always upgrade later on and you will have as much fun as anyone shooting. Good luck Mike

Skeet choke...! Was designed for that purpose.

The Mossberg 500 Stock is the stock for the Mossberg 500 shotgun. The stock would allow you to get a better grip on the shotgun and absorb some recoil from firing the shotgun.

Yes, you can....but the chamber on the 500 barrel is only bored for 3" max shells. You won't be able to fire 3.5" shells through the 500 barrel.

Yes, the 600 At is the same model as the 500 series, but with a different designation for sale in New haven stores. So yes, all Mossberg 500 after market or OEM parts will fit it.
