    Shame, shame. Mini-Evan had his leg in the trigger guard before he was ready to shoot.
    Excellent guide, by the way.

    How about having the little guy take a shot at a Rem 870. From what I can tell it looks like most of the Moss 500 will apply, but have never actually taken one apart. Just got a pawnshop 870 and need to repaint the receiver and barrel [flat black] to deal with some surface rust. The whole gun is black so the match won't be an issue, just think it best to disassemble the gun to avoid getting overspray on the trigger group or whatever. Anybody have any suggestions or advice on the paint touch-up?

    I have not visited this board in a while. As an Armorer, this thread tickled me to death. Very cute and informative. TOGGLELOCK

    Western Revelation 310A

    A little cheesy, but accurate. Nice job.

    I just picked up a Western Auto Revelation 310A (modifying for tactical/home defense) and it is virtually identical. I will document the differences as I determine them.

    I had to repair a broken safety and found that the 310A's Safety Block uses a different hold down screw and shorter detent spring. So far most parts interchangeable.

    HOLY, HOLY CRAPOLA.....this was, in fact, the most enjoyable "firearm" thread I have ever read. Funny, funny, funny, and smart!

    Looking forward to teardown!

    Picked up a Mossy 500 at the Indy 1500 last weekend. Looking forward to stripping it and cleaning it now! Great post. Very creative.

    I had the screw holder that the stock screw threads into drive me crazy! I kept having a little wobble in the stock and I kept retighting the stock screw as I feared a cracked stock!
    Upon complete removal of the buttstock, I found that the stock screw socket had wrench grooves cut into it and when I applied a crescent wrench to it, the stock was able to be tightened!

    Thank you for this great thread. I just bought a Mossberg 500 and this will help me maintain it.

    Excellent thread. I really enjoyed the pics with Mini-Me.

    One criticism, a Mossberg 500 safety is supposed to have a ball bearing. It's easy to lose during a detail strip. Looks like yours has gone walkabout. Brownells has them for sale.

    The ball bearing and spring were not removed from the receiver. Old models with a lot of use they get stuck in the hole and I prefer that so less likely to get lost.

    Right after you posted this I enjoyed reading especially with Mini-Me. In my lifetime I have owned and disassembled many Mossberg 500's, today I took one of my 500C's out took it down for a long over due cleaning. Don't know what happened, guess the brain cells that are related to how to reassemble the Mossberg took a nap or just got formatted. Anyway I had to back track on the disassemble just to get the elevator back in the proper step. Hated to admit it but very glad you had it here.

    Thank you Evan, both funny and very instructive. I would like to someday get to the same disassembly level with my BAR (which I suspect to be a little more complicated). I researched a bit and could not find anything like your post to get me there safely yet. I hope your work will inspire others to share their knowledge as brilliantly as you did.

    That is a very outstanding description in addition to being as funny as a boiled owl.
