Great deer hunting barrel
The Bushnell scope that comes with the barrel is not bad. Just enough for what you need on a shotgun. Especially a 20 gauge one. Sighted in very well from factory. Check if it’s tight (mine was – I heard somebody complaining he had to tighten it… well, it comes with an allan key anyway… )
Long barrel – good precision.
Out of box accuracy – one inch group of five shots at 60 yards (from prone position) with Hornady's SST shotgun slugs, 20 Gauge, 2 3/4", 250 grains, 1800 fps from a cold barrel. No correction necessary up to 100 yards (pretty flat for a shotgun, eh?).
The ported barrel reduces the muzzle flip considerably. You can shoot with confidence up to 100 yards. If you’re a good shot, the 20 ga Hornady slug will drop the deer in its tracks at 150 yards. Beyond 150 yards the bullet drop requires serious correction… would not recommend such long shots with this gun/ammo combination…
I went with 20 ga because the 12 ga does too much damage (I like the meat and I can’t see it spoiled…) and it seems to be sufficient for white tail deer at the normal distances a shot is required for a shotgun season..
Bottom line: you can’t go wrong with a 24inch cantilever rifled scoped barrel for 150 bucks…
This 'appears' to be a great product and I think it will be once I can attach it to the 20ga.
This will ONLY fit on a 5+1 magazine tube.
I have the 7+1 factory and that was way too long. I purchased the replacement from Brownells and they sent me a 4+1 - too short. Finally, I called Mossberg and ordered directly from the factory. Hopefully this will be the right one. Plan on spending another 35ish for the magazine tube and magazine tube spring to get this to work.
At first I was a little skeptical of an integrated scope and barrel combo, but as a busy dad balancing several boys, sports, school and making sure we find plenty of opportunities to love and appreciate the outdoors, it finally dawned on me...my 9 year old son (with my supervision of course) can swap barrels between deer and pheasant season in a matter of 5 minutes without losing accuracy and having to make a run to the range again...I should have bought it last season!
Great product for a great price. Installed in less than 2 minutes. Sighed in very nicely. I did have to tighten several scope mount nuts.
I have the Mossberg youth combo and it came with this barrel/scope combination. The cantilever barrel is great as no re-sighting in is required. As long as the barrel is in a case and not banged around. The scope isn't exactly high end and my 1st order of business was to add proper optics. The porting is helpful in reducing recoil. This is my first foray into deer hunting with a shotgun and I could not possibly be more pleased. Accuracy is outstanding with proper ammunition. I tried all the major ammo brands and I shoot the 2 3/4 or 3 inch Hornady sabot. 250gr SST bullet at 1800fps zero'd at 150 is dead accurate with only an 8 inch drop at 200, producing 1.5 inch groups at 100yds. Dropped a deer this year at 170! So...get the barrel..put a proper scope on it and let'm fly
This scope/barrel combo fits properly and shoots well. I have only tried 2 types of rounds through it so far. They both shot well at 50 yds. 3 shot groups of about 2 inches from sandbags. I will try a few more types of rounds to find the "right" one for the gun. Be sure to set your scope where you need it, not where they set it. I would have been smacked by the scope had I not moved it forward before going to the range. This also entails tightening all the screws before shooting.
I would by this again and recommend it to others.
Comes with a Barska scope. When you tighten the protection covers for the elevation knob it moves your zero by 10-20 clicks.
My son shoot over a deer at about 70 yards because of this issue.
A washer and some glue we figured it out and resighted the gun.
My son harvested a deer the next day with this set up on a Mossberg 500C.
PUT BARREL ON MY MOSSBURG 20 GA. SHOT GUN. DID A BORE SIGHT. TOOK GUN TO RANGE FIRED 5 ROUNDS TO SIGHT GUN IN.
This came in the mail within two days after ordering it. It was fantastic and fit my model 500 like a glove. I did however bore site to my standards (ex-sniper) and within two shots dead centered a jug at 75 yards. Very good deal for deer hunting in shotgun regulated states!
I purchesed this barrel to go on my wifes Mossberg Super Bantam. I was shooting 3" groups at 70 yards using the 20gauge Honaday SST's. BY FAR the most accurate slug gun Ive ever seen. Tried a coupla other slug types with NO success...HORNADAY is the way to go for this rifled barrel. Recoil is LESS with this ported rifled barrel than with dove loads. Im sure to get better groups with more range time. Opening day is Saterday :-)
When I got the barrel I looked down the bore and noticed that where it is compensated, there are burrs. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet but I hope the accuracy has not been affected.
This barrel/scope combo was a outstanding deal. Both items bought by them self would cost over $50.00 more (I did the research). It took only three shots to sight the gun in (scope was pre-sighted). For any serious deer hunter this is a must have combo because it makes your shot gun as deadly as a rifle. Walmart proved once again they have some of the best deals around.
Fit and finish were superb. Put the scoped barrel on the Mossberg 500 and it was sighted in for the most part; only a little tweaking necessary. My local gun shops wanted at least $40.00 more. I am pleased.
This scope was incredibly easy to install to my shotgun. It really made it easier for me to sight in the gun for hunting seasons.
Acurrate at 100yds with only minor adjustment to scope. Zeroed in with 5 shots.
It's a good combo for the money. I love Mossberg shot guns. This was the best price I found
This barrel and scope combo is a pre-packaged product from the manufacturer and is laser bore sighted. Of course it is super easy to install. I had it zeroed at 100 yards in less than 10 rounds and was printing sub 3" groups there after. This was exactly the deal I was looking for and was significantly lower priced than anywhere else I fould. Even better, it was made in the USA.
I want to thank the reviewer that stated it fit the Mossberg 500 Super Bantam. It was good right out of the box. The scope might need a little tweek on the accuracy. I am so happy with this purchase!
