    Not sure why my father had this in his collection, but here are the markings on the bottom (or best I can read them):

    Mossberg 500ATP8 12 OA

    I am not sure I have the magazine, what does that do to the value (and what is the value)?

    Thanks

    the gun you have is a mossberg 500 model shotgun. atp8 variation means it has a full length magazine tube and 20 inch barrel. the guns magazine is a tube under the barrel. to someone not familiar with the design it does look as though somethings missing from the bottom though

    it is worth about 250 i think. i would be interested in it

    looks like the shell elevator is gone. $250 is a little strong, but since it is kind of special purpose I could see it. The full length tube is awesome. Mossbergs are easy to work on. just youtube mossberg 500 and you will get all kinds of videos. Watch a dissasembly video and you should be able to figure out if there is any parts missing. Would make a great home defense piece.

    no fleetwood it's all there. the shell lifter isnt like a remington or a winchester where it fills the portion of the receiver below the bolt.

    it has a leg on either side of the receiver and a solid tip which cradles the bolt when the action is close.
