    Your input needed - want to trick out a Mossy 500 pump - What do you recommend?

    Requesting some input on a good folding and or collapsible stock with a pistol grip for the Mossberg 500. I already have two ATI variants, but nothing that folds up and over the weapon. If it also packs an extra 5 - 6 shells on it, all the better.

    Back Story - Well, thar I wuz cleaning the big boomsticks yesterday (if you got all the stuff and the bore snake out, ya might as well clean em 'all), which at some point the wife walked in and used the lords name in vane in the same sentence containing "...........do you think you have enough shotguns?" As usual, I shrugged, smiled and asked her if she had seen the last ammo bill.............

    So, that made me think about the one I have not tricked out for in home movement to contact.

    Seriously, I forgot about the latest Mossberg 500 I had picked up (the good sale deal with the hunting and riot barrel combo = very good value) and would like your advice, and or defensive shotgun gun porn. Whichever.


    Thanks.

    Semper Fi!

    I've tried different stocks, sights, grips and all manner of tricky doo-dads, but finally just settled on a simple Blackhawk pistol grip/adjustable stock (and I sometimes wonder if that's really an "upgrade" from the traditional stock layout).

    Only other thing I might consider someday is a side-saddle. Right now I'm using a Blackhawk shot shell sling that works pretty good for extra ammo and if you mount it "backwards" (i.e. shells to the rear) it doesn't unbalance the gun when swinging it.

    KISS very much applies for my guns.

    Plan ahead Al and get an Optic/Red Dot for your vision when it starts to head south (and never comes back).

    Side saddle shell holder on receiver. Tactical light of 250 lumen minimum. Sling w/loops for 10-20 extra shells.

    Have you considered an original SPAS 12 shotgun? The first SPAS 12 collapsible butt stock folded up over the receiver. At the flip of a switch it was pump or auto. It was a 9+1 and had Bravo Alpha written all over it.
    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    I generally don't run PG's on my shotgun, but Mako Group makes a very good PG with folding stock. Second also the side saddle (I like receiver mounted for fast reloads) and light.

    I just picked up a mossberg semi-auto 20 gauge for HD. It's 5+1 and I'm adding a Choate magazine extender to make it an 8 shot. Also ordered the laserlyte center mass 9 point laser to mount on the rail. The center mass laser is an 8 point circle with one point in the middle. As the target get further from you the laser diverges to mimic the pattern of buckshot. In a pinch my wife could defend herself and the kids with this. 8 rounds of 20 gauge will add a 1/2 pound of lead to anybody that means her harm.

    Of course I'll manage to have some fun with it too. Can't wait to get it out.

    I don't know who makes it, but somebody out there has a forend/flashlight combo for shotguns that I'd like to get my hands on.

    Butler Creek folding stock, side saddle, custom CREE 300 lumen light, Vang Comp oversize safety, and number 1 Buck gives you a formidable HD solution. If time is tight, you don't have to swing out the stock and can use the pistol grip - but I wouldn't recommend it.

    To you 'all, I am very much appreciating your input and this is getting me as jazzed up (make it a little project shotgun - yeah!) with your ideas.

    As for the extra shells on the port side of the receiver, all but this one which is still stock outta the box have them added, regardless of the shell carying slings.

    Hey, do they make a folding stock that can also act as an E-Tool/prying instrument? (um, possibly a good business idea there................)

    And @ shockwave, that is some really good gun porn............. thank you! I like the mix of slugs and OO.......... do the same thing. It is kind of like 'select a yeild' on the M-whatever nuke................

    That's the one, thanks.

    Just a little outside my price range, though, right now.

    Other than adding a light, leave it stock. Tricking out is for pimps.

    I was in the same predicament regarding my old Rem 870. Since all I was really interested in was making it more functional for HD under dark conditions, I replaced the 3 mile long barrel with an 18.5", added a tactical light that simply clamps to the barrel, put a shell holder on the OE stock and loaded her up with 00 buck. My only other thought would be to extend the magazine but I'm ok with 3 +1 at the moment.

    Agree....I leave my shotguns pretty K.I.S.S. simple. Scatterguns are likely the best example of what a firearm was truly designed for, that being protecting the homestead and supplying meat for the larder. The only modifications I do are possibly a leather butt-cuff ammo carrier or side saddle. Truth be told, I only do that on the pump guns I designate strictly for home defense use.

    Look at the Mossberg FLEX System. Allows a number of different configurations.

    I wanted a budget HD shotgun, so I went with a Maverick 88 for $200 new. Added a side saddle on the receiver that holds 6 more shells (on top of the 5 in the tube and 1 in the chamber), a light, and should be getting an adjustable stock in the mail today. Hopefully the stock is comfortable.

    Was looking for simple, yet functional upgrades.
