I have a mossberg 500 and want to make it into a tactical gun. I want to buy a new barrel for a longer mag tube, but I'm not sure if I can unscrew the original one out of the receiver. Can I do this?

Yes, but the old one might be "loctited" in, so you'll need to use heat to break it loose, try one of those industrial strength hair dryers and a padded vise....

In addition to some heat, use a strap wrench out near the end where it's solid. If you twist near the action there is a real danger of messing up the tube. Goatwhiskers
