For those seeking to run a micro red dot on their shotgun when it comes time to harvest toms, Mossberg has a trio of new options. 

Unveiled this week by the legendary shotgun maker were two new Model 500s and a Model 835 Ulti-Mag variant that has been tailored for turkey hunters, all including receiver cuts for low-profile, direct mounting of Shield RMSc-pattern micro red dot sights in addition to being fully camouflaged. All have a 5+1 shell magazine capacity.

The two Model 500s include a 24-inch barreled .410 bore and a 22-inch 20-gauge version, each with X-Full choke tubes and Mossy Oak Greenleaf camo patterns. Likewise, they have 3-inch chambers and front fiber-optic sights. 

The 835 is a 12 gauge with a 3.5-inch chamber using a 24-inch barrel. It also runs Mossy Oak Greenleaf.

Suggested retail is in the $639-644 range, depending on the model.
