    Thank you. I was finally able to purchase a stock/forend at a reasonable price and will attempt to put it on.

    This video is awesome! Just bought my first Mossberg (500c) I had no clue how take that thing apart. This video is easy to understand & follow. I got it apart & back together in about 15 to 20 minutes. No parts left over & everything works! Thanks for great video.

    I would use a small amount of gun oil on the innards. Hoppes #9 is an oldie but goodie.;)

    Does anyone else use a small dab of white grease to cartridge interrupter and cartridge stop in place while putting the trigger assembly in?
    I did and found it made it much easier to manipulate.
    I used this as I have used it on the rails of all of my Glocks, H&K's and Colt 1911A1's and found it to be a great lube for the price.

    Sounds like a great idea. When I was new to breaking down 500's they could be a pain to keep in place while putting the trigger back in. I have done the process so many times now that it is no longer an issue for me.
