    Anyone know if it's possible to buy a barrel for a left-handed 500? I'm having no luck finding any.

    I would give Mossberg a call and order one.

    Wouldn't the barrel be the same for all of them?

    According to Mossbergs advertising,,,,,,,,,,,

    C&P from Mossberg.......

    Left-handers can enjoy the same dependable, workhorse family of 500/590/590A1 pump-actions that, after 50+ years and millions of current users worldwide, has proven itself in every conceivable hunting and shooting environment.
    FEATURES: All the key features of 500/590/590A1 are there: ambidextrous safety, dual extractors, positive steel-to-steel lockup, twin action bars, and smooth operating anti-jam elevator. MilSpec 590A1 models feature heavy-walled barrels, metal trigger guards and safety buttons; and both 590 and 590A1 models have easy-access cleanout mag tubes. Left-handed models are compatible with standard Mossberg accessories including: stocks, grips, sights, and rails. The FLEX™ 500® L-Series model is fully-compatible with all FLEX TLS™ System accessories (excluding barrels).

    It reads to me that the Flex series are the ones where the barrels might be different. The two barrels with my 500 don't look like they would be any different whether they were right or left handed.

    You would need to call Mossberg to know for sure, or get a LH gun in your hands.

    This is from the horses mouth(Mossberg),,,,,,LH series barrels do NOT fit any RH shotguns, any vise versa.

    Also none of the innards fit either.

    In the owners manual on page 6 , it says:
    "Barrels are not interchangeable between model numbers, gauge, or
    capacity. 500®, 505™, 510™, 535™, 590® and 835® barrels are
    interchangeable only with barrels of the same model, gauge and capacity.
    Right and left hand model barrels are not interchangeable."
