    Metal Mossy 500 Safety

    I was getting ready to order a metal safety button kit for my Mossberg 500 HD when I suddenly noticed for the very first time that I already had a metal button. Now my question is: is this stock or add on? Does anybody out there have an older Mossberg 500 with the metal button from the factory? And if so, does anybody know when they switched to plastic? See button below. It isnít current add on safety as sold on the internet. Front of the button is smooth and all the add ons have serrated fronts.

    I got my Mossberg 500 many years ago
    and it has a plastic safety. I think the 590 models
    come with a metal safety. Did you buy yours
    new or used? If used maybe the previous owner
    added or replaced the safety with a metal one.

    This was an old gun that I picked up at a gun store. It was part of a bunch of guns brought in. It was rusty and all scarred up. It had a 28" fixed choke barrel and serial # J046254. All internal springs were rusty. I rescued the gun and turned it into a HD.

    The more I look at this thing, the more it looks like a bolt action rifle safety button (very low profile, one way serrations , etc.) Something similar to the old Savage. Mossberg says it does not resemble any of their metal buttons nor any of the known aftermarket ones. Any rifle owners out there recognize it?

    Numrich and Remington both indicate that Woodmaster has trigger guard mounted safety. Did they use to have tang safety?

    This thing has such a low profile that I still thing it was probably under a bolt. The only other thing might be a double barrel. Some models of both put the safety back on "safe" when the action was worked. Hence no need for two directional serrations.
