The thumb controls the safety on the Mossberg. The shotgun came drilled and tapped for a scope mount. Blonde wood and a gold-colored trigger gave the 500 Bantam a distinctive look.
Of our three test shotguns, only the Mossberg featured a ventilated buttpad and a rear sling stud. The pistol grip was thicker and sported traditional checkering.
Right: The Mossberg 500 Bantam had the longest warranty (10 years), and it arrived with the most extras, including a secondary bead and three chokes. Capacity from the factory was 5+1.
