Step 2: Remove the Barrel
1. Open the action halfway

Note: The Mossberg 500 comes with interchangeable barrels allowing the operator to switch to a barrel that better suits their intended uses. To change barrels simply remove the barrel that is to be changed and attach the desired barrel.
Danger: Barrels of different models and calibers should not be interchanged. This can cause serious malfunctions in the firearm’s operation endangering the operator and those nearby.
