    T.I.

    You're looking for a Mossberg AHT. A very limited production pump action
    trap gun that was assembled by Simmons with Mossberg components.

    That model was manufactured in the mid to late '70s...It came with a 30" high profile Simmons rib, an extra high comb wood stock and upgraded trigger assembly and a set of three knurled end Winchester style choke tubes in Full, Imp Mod and Mod.

    A unique trap gun that was way ahead of it's time...

    I have one sitting in my safe that would love to see some action.

    Finding a barrel with a HIGH PROFILE SIMMONS RIB is going to be next to impossible and most likely too expensive. You might be better off just buying a complete number matched Mossberg AHT.

    It would be smarter to dump the Tossberg and buy something better.

    oletymer,

    I have to disagree.

    Mossberg makes a good quality shotgun at a very reasonable pirce. Many police departments use Mossbergs as does the US Military. The AHT model with the Simmons Olympic Rib just might surprise you as it has surprised quite a few P-Gun, K-Gun, B-Gun & Z-Gun owners over the years...in my hands.

    I don't shoot it very often anymore because I prefer a break open gun, but I'll be happy to wager it against anything you own. For someone on a budget, it's a good solid gun.

    Remember...it's not the wand, it's the Magician!

    Oh, one last thought, they're made right here in the USA?

    I have to agree with Joe's statement, a friend of mine in 2006 won 4th. place at the Pa. state shoot handicap championship event using a AHT. Score was 97 from the 23 yard line and his $400 investment paid him around $2,200 He bought the gun from ollieodawg. Correction, that score was a 98 along with 4 other shooters. He was the only one that played all the options.

    TOOLMAKER,

    That's a great story! Can you post a piture!

    I'll bet there were a lot of long faces after that event.

    ps: don't tell Andy...he'll want the gun back!

    I have one (Mossberg 500 AHT) that I may be willing to part with. Make me an offer that I can't refuse. And we will talk. Paul in Nebraska.

    Haven't shot my AHT for awhile now, but all this talk makes me want to take it out for a couple rounds! I bought a set of Carlson extended tubes for it a couple years ago and shot Annies with it.

    Trust me, there is no better feeling than shoot'n out a P-GUN with a MOSSBERG!

    Smok'n Joe, The guy I posted about that shot the 98 had his AHT receiver and trigger housing gold anodized and it made the gun stand out. P.S. Andy was bragging to everybody that came in his tent that he sold the gun to him.

    Funny i stumbled across this thread.

    We have a boy on our High School Trap team that shoots a Mossberg. He asked me this morning if i knew anything about Mossberg Trap Barrels. I really know nothing about Mossberg guns period. He said he just bought a Trap barrel for $90 from a local. I have not seen it yet but spoke with him this morning. He is supposed to bring it to practice this week. Was there more than one style of Mossberg Pump Trap Barrel? I'm almost certain his is a Model 500 from the pics above. If it is a Trap barrel is it worth $90?

    generally mossberg sold alot of 28" barrels

    so a 30" barrel is tough to come buy

    the 30" high rib trap barrel went out of production in 1982 or 1984 if i remember correctly

    they sold a 30 low rib barrel also (sometimes sold as a trap barrel)

    kd185,

    That sounds about right...the only other option would be to send a Mossberg 30" barrel to Simmons and have an Olympic rib installed... $$$$....YIKES!!!

    Looks like a regular 28" vent rib barrel. Not a high rib trap barrel. Jim
