Would I be able to take a barrel that isn't rifled and is just plane and tap it so I could put choke tubes in it? The barrel is a 18.5 inch. The gun is a Mossberg 500.

That is a job for a gunsmith experienced in installing chokes. Seminole Gun Works or Briley come to mind.

You need special reamer, tap and experience to do it correctly.. Send it to a smith..

You got $600 burning a hole in your pocket? Also do you have a lathe to make sure that your square to the bore? Oh and another $150 in adjustable reamers.. Or send it to a smith and pay the $65 or so dollars to have one installed properly!

My thoughts too. Why not just get another barrel for the Mossy?
