The longest factory Mossberg barrel I know of is (was) the 30" VR full choke, single front brass bead sight version, which I believe is discontinued. Good shooters tend to list for around $75 on gunbroker.com.

You can find this barrel on some of the house-brand guns made in the 1970's such as the Western Field 550ABD or New Haven 600AT.

Wow I would love to see a 38 inch barrel. There would be no point of aiming. You can just put the muzzle right up to the belly of the pig from across the field.

A 38" piece? Ok - we need photos of this.. including the stampings.

What era were these made in?

I just picked one up a 500a Regal with the factory 38" barrel full chock. I couldnt believe it. Thought my eyes were playing tricks on me but its stamped on the barrel, 38in 2-3/4 in - 3in 38in factory full chock. ITS ONE LONG GUN! Doing some research I found it was produced ONLY on the 500a Regal. Get with me if you want to see pix. I may be interested in selling or trading it. Havent shot it yet but Im heading out tomorrow 2/5/13 and see how it feels. May be interested in selling or trading just the barrel but would hate to seperate it, but if someone wants it bad enough I will. I dont do trukey shoots but it would probably be perfect for that!

My 1974 Mossberg 500AT was equipped with a 30" plain barrel and full choke when I got it - you could really reach out and touch those squirrels in the tall timber. Also brought home many a frozen turkey from turkey shoots as it would deliver a devastatingly tight pattern of #6's to those paper plate targets! Had to pick up a 28" VR barrel with accu-chokes so's I could use steel shot for waterfowl hunting when the Feds banned lead shot. Thinking about taking the old 30" smokepole to a gunsmith reduce it to 18.5 inches for hd duty.

For awhile in the 70's there was a bit of a long barrel "goose gun" craze. Mossberg had the 38" 500. Marlin had the 55g 36" full bolt action and a 40" barreled pump. The incorrect theory was longer barrel = farther shooting. My dad watched as some sucker bought one of the 40 inch Marlins after he and the gun salesman told the guy it was a waste of money.

Hastings made extra long barrels for a number of guns some years back.
I have them for both the 500 and the BPS. 36 inch, straight rifled barrels, supposed to keep the shot charge from rotating, going down the bore.
