A single large locking lug is used to secure the breech.The magazine tube is located below the barrel, and is screwed into the receiver.
The Model 590A1 has an aluminum trigger guard and safety, a heavier barrel, and a bayonet lug (although some versions of the 590 also have bayonet lugs), intended for military use under extreme conditions and rough handling; the metal trigger guard was added in response to the 3443G materials requirements, and the heavy barrel was added at the request of the Navy to prevent barrel deformation if the shotgun caught in the closing of heavy steel ship doors.
The 500 series comprises widely varying models of hammerless repeaters, all of which share the same basic receiver and action, but differ in bore size, barrel length, choke options, magazine capacity, stock and forearm materials.
Model numbers included in the 500 series are the 500, 505, 510, 535, and 590.
This level of field stripping is sufficient to allow all components to be cleaned.
The name "Model 500" covers an entire family of pump shotguns designed to chamber 3-inch (76 mm) "magnum" shells.
This is also true of the 590 series since an aluminum receiver cannot be parkerized.
Mossberg also offers camouflage painted models, in a number of different patterns.
A 16 gauge was offered at one time but has been discontinued.
The standard finish for the Model 500 is an anodized aluminum alloy receiver and a polished and blued barrel.
The trigger housing and safety button are made of plastic to reduce cost.
The trigger assembly, which includes the trigger, hammer, sear, and trigger body with guard, can be removed by pushing out one retaining pin and pulling downwards on the guard (if a pistol grip is installed, it usually must be removed first as virtually all such grips obstruct the removal of the trigger body).
The slide release is located to the left rear of the trigger guard, and the safety is located on the upper rear of the receiver (often called a "tang safety").
