O.F. Mossberg & Sons—best known as just Mossberg—is one of the United States’ leading firearm manufacturers, specializing in shotguns, rifles, scopes, and pistol accessories. Mossberg has a long history that goes back to when the company founder, Oscar Mossberg, immigrated to the U.S. in 1866. After World War I, Mossberg focused on working on a simple .22-caliber pocket pistol called the Brownie, which was marketed mainly to hunters and trappers for the humane killing of trapped or wounded animals.
The Brownie helped Mossberg grow steadily and eventually introduced the company’s very first line of .22 rifles. This eventually led to the Mossberg 500, a popular all-purpose shotgun that belongs to the Mossberg pump-action shotgun series.
The Mossberg 500 All-Purpose Field Shotgun has a rich history where it’s been used by law enforcement and military personnel in several wars, including the Persian Gulf War, Lebanese Civil War, Iraq War, and Global War on Terrorism.
