Serving the front line every day, the Mossberg family of 500 pump-action shotguns are built to the demanding standards of military and law enforcement personnel. Now this field-proven, 12-gauge 3-inch shotgun comes equipped with the latest in laser technology, the LaserLyte Center Mass “spreader-pattern” laser, ideal for training and improving your shotgun target shooting skills or for personal defense applications. Two Mossberg 500 Tactical Tri-Rail shotguns will feature the Center Mass laser, the 500 Persuader 8-Shot and the 500 Cruiser 6-Shot.
The LaserLyte Center Mass laser, weighing just one-half ounce, displays a ring of red dots that surround a center aiming beam which spreads at a rate of one-inch per yard as the aiming beam pinpoints the shot pattern’s center. The visual pattern approximates the same configuration as a shotgun aimed at a moving target. This “spreader-pattern” provides for quick, more accurate target acquisition and gives the user a wide field-of-view while using both eyes for aiming. This innovative laser features three modes of operation: Constant On, Pulse and Auto-Off and runs off of three 357 silver oxide batteries which provide 2.5 hours constant runtime and 5 hours in pulse mode.
The legendary 500 pump-action platform features non-binding twin action bars; positive steel-to-steel lock-up and anti-jam elevator for smooth, reliable operation; anodized aluminum receiver; and universally-recognized ambidextrous top-mounted safety. This durable, field-tested shotgun comes with a ten-year limited warranty.
