    Adding picatinny rail to a stock Mossberg foregrip. Help!

    I want to add a two inch piece of picatinny rail to the foregrip of my Mossberg 500 SPX. I don't know who's rail has the curve on the back side to marry up to the grip.
    Any help in pointing me in the right direction if you know of some with the curved back would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Mitch

    I just want some rail in one spot and if I can get a piece for $20, I would rather do that then spend $70+ for a decent foregrip.

    I'm considering that too but I'd like to keep the light on the foregrip where I can work the switch with my thumb and not have to worry about a cord. I've looked at the Surefire foregrips but they are a little too expensive. Thanks for the reply and picture.

    I dremmeled a little recessed area out of the forearm for the pressure switch so it sits flush. The velcro attachment is worthless, but I found a tiny little dot of hot glue holds the switch forever until I'm ready to pry it off, then the tip of the knife pulls the dried glue dot right off as well.

    Update - I ended up buying a tri-rail forend (Mako Group) from Amazon. It should be here by next weekend. Now time to decide on a light. I looked at a Nextorch TL1 at te LGS. Nice light, very bright (200 lumens) and well made. Looks like they are new in the US. The only thing I don't like is there is no remote switch option. It will probably be between that or a streamlight. I'll post a picture when it is all done. Thanks for the replys.

    Well, I got all my parts in today and couldn't be happier. I ordered a Mako Group Tri-rail forend, a single point sling adapter, and a single point sling. Then I picked up a Nextorch TL1 light (pistol light) at the LGS. The light is perfect on there. I can control the switch for momentary or constant on with my index finger. No cord to worry about and with 200 lumens, it is blinding. I like too that the edge of the light beam catches the front sight. You can see the sight.

    Wow, that is a pimped out shotgun.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
