Mossberg 500 Persuader Conversion

I have a 6 shot Mossberg 500 Persuader with the 18.5” barrel and the synthetic stock installed (not pistol grip). I want to change the barrel to the 24” or 28” so I can use it in the field for some casual bird hunts or clay shooting. I reached out to Moossberg support to ask if I needed to worry about chokes with swapping the barrel; their response, “The Persuader is a dedicated security model and cannot be converted.” Is that true? I thought the whole point of the 500 platform was interchangeability? Mossberg offers a field/home two barrel swap shotgun, how is this any different?

Can I not just swap the 500 barrel and take this in the field?

Thanks!

I am guessing you contacted them by email.

Call them and talk to a live human that can explain why a 500 barrel will not work on the Persuader.

Good luck and all the best.
