Answer #1 - It has character , enjoy it as is .

Answer # 2 - Brownells make Alumablack for just this purpose . Won't be mistaken for brand new , but would look 100% better from 3 feet away for cheap ( probably under $20, but didn't price check .

Answer #3 - High tech miracle finish . Will be better than new, but cost more than the going price of an older used complete gun.

Leave it that way. Put a beat to hell Cop stock on it. Keep it functional, but let her look like what she is. Much cooler that way.

Good trunk gun, or just shoot the hell out of it.

Definitely an aluminum alloy. Best of my knowledge, there has never been a steel receiver Mossberg 500.

Nice heat shield, that'll come in handy when your going through 50 rounds a minute and the fore end has melted off so it's all you have left to hold on to. Mossberg... hahaha

Is the "bluing" just that bad, back in the day, or is this poor old shottie just been beat to hell and back? lol.

It's an old Mossberg 500.
Two Questions.....

1). Is that a shock absorbing butt stock ??
2). What heat shield is it and was there any issues installing it ??

Thanks!

My son wanted to use my m500 to take back to base so he could do some turkey hunting. Anyway I let him do it and then one day he calls me up as says one of his bud's from the aarmory says what the Fou[oks the matter with that gun? He let him see it and he told me the guy says holy Fu*5 its worn so brite On that part of the barrel I thought it was chromed.
I just laughed and asked what you tell him he said I told Him give me that CLP Im afraid if it gets rust on it might mess it up or something.
I guess the two of them didnt notice where the trigger bow was fiberglassed back on from lighting slugs off when I used a burned out combine for a rest one time about 25 or 30 years ago.
Later on he got popped for being to close to a LZ and i said what you get? worried about the plug thats never been in it but he didnt get checked for that just a one year restriction if he would have lost my gun I ould have to kill him.

Mossberg make their receivers out of aluminum. That looks like a cop Gun where it was locked into the rack in their car.

Thanks!
1. Butt Stock: It is a lot nicer than all the generic AR15 and AR "style" stocks, but it's not a shock absorbing one.
2. Heat Shield: I did not install it, but it simply slides on and has 4 small screws on a clamshell clamp that hold it tight at the front part of it.

I just bought an older , slightly beat up wood stock and corn cob forend for it, which I think will only add to the old cop gun look.

Will probably swap the heat shield and adjustable stock onto my 20" barreled Maverick.

It's not bluing...aluminum is anodized and anodizing doesn't have the durability of bluing...and bluing isn't all that durable itself. That's simply the anodizing wearing off with good, honest use.
