    The condition is very good for being 40+ years old sitting on the shelf and being handled by countless people. The wood on the pump rubs the receiver a little bit i think I'll give it a little trim.There is a flaw on the grip near the bottom right side looks like somebody at the factory got a little carried away with a sander.

    Mine was under $200 back in the early, umm, er, I can't remember when I bought it. Two barrels. Picked up a muzzleloader barrel and slug barrel later...the slug barrel was almost as much as what the gun originally cost.

    What a cool ad! I know the exchange rate would be different then and now, but it is weird seeing barrels for $20 or the whole gun for $73. Boy, how times have changed. It's hard to believe the 500 is as old as it is. With all the accessories you can get for it, you'd never really guess the 500 is 52 years old if you didn't know the history behind it. Why mess with perfection, eh? :mrgreen:
