A 500? A 535? A 590? A 600? An 835? All the same, the classic 500 action. The forearm is designed with separate action bars that are pinned in place at the action bar collar on the action slide tube. The pivoting bars made binding and bending of the bars an impossibility and allowed the gun to function even when wet and dirty as sporting guns tend to get. At that time, the late 50's, bent action bars were a pretty common thing. At that time, replacement parts weren't an Ebay bid away. The Mossy pinned bars made the Mossy 500 work well and keep working when others didn't. It's designed to be a bit loose....but today's parts are easy to come by. If you want to stop the looseness, there's an easy way. Remove the forearm wood, make sure the gun is unloaded, of course, and then pull the action slide tube all the way back as if you were pumping it to shoot. With it ALL THE WAY BACK, heat and solder the joint where the bars are pinned to the collar. Takes just a dab of solder on both sides. Word of is NOT easily reversible! If you don't like the solid feel later, it'll mean a new action slide tube!

Front end rattle

It's a loose steering column. Remove the black plastic shield under the steering wheel. Lossen the bolt that holds the two shafts together, slide them together as far as they'll go, and re-tighten the bolt. It's that simple... to stop that annoying rattle.

Level the drier, check the drum for foreing objects, check your belt and replace if need to. Check your rear drum seal, and your drier idler pulley, and replace if need to.
