Mossberg 500 Stainless Steel

I have just managed to purchase a Mossberg 500 in stainless steel (stainless action and barrel). The original owner purchased it new some 25 years ago for use on his boat. It's only had 10 rounds put through it in that time. I paid NZ$500.00 for it (US$400)

Does anyone have any information on the history of the stainless version of the 500? When were they made, how many were produced, serial numbers etc?

Cheers

Mariner ....... most likely, but it is not a marine cote model. This is genuine stainless steel. Its the first stainless one I have ever seen in the flesh.

I vaguely remember those from wholesale catalogs in the 1990s. They were available for a few years and didn't sell well, as they were close to fifty percent more expensive than the nickel plated marine coat.
