Just picked up a Mossberg 500 Cruiser a couple weeks ago and immediately ordered some goodies to make it the perfect home defense weapon. So far I’ve only taken care of the front, adding a UTG all aluminum forend with rails, Hell Fighter X-12 torch (150 Lumens), and a NcSTAR Red/Green Laser mounted to a Mako T-Grip.
I am still considering my options for the rear end grip, I want to keep it a pistol grip. Not worried about recoil reduction, I’m 6’3 280 and kick is not an issue….
Also need to purchase a Mesa Tactical Shell holder (B/c its aluminum)
Any suggestions are more than welcome.
Thanks!
Ray

Geez....everything has spikes on it! Makes me think of chariots and Ben Hur and stuff. Sorry...first impressions I reckon. Spikes......that could make the difference in an assault weapon, and a defensive weapon. Then again...a 'defensive' weapon is never used as an offensive weapon right? I may be confused for a little while, but not for long.

The Mossberg came with the breacher barrel, and the torch has a glass breaker front end on it, also helps protect the lense, likewise with the laser.

The light was purchased to take with me on road trips and the gun is home in the safe, so the glass breaker is a nice feature.

Nice looking set-up you got there... :hand10: Once you add the side saddle shell carrier, it'll be a mighty good HD shotgun...:yup:

I have the same flash light, I have it on my 870 side mounted like that as well.

That is a really nice set up

You've got waaaaaay too much crap strapped to that thing.

I respectfully disagree, a light b/c I’m not going to be searching for a light switch when someone is in my house, and a laser b/c it’s a pistol grip possibly shot from the hip, and I want to know exactly where the hole is going to be. Anyone with a vertical grip on the forend can attest to the assistance it gives with handling the recoil, especially being a pistol grip 12ga.

Fair enough.

I guess I'm just old school. I've never felt that there would ever be a problem in my house that couldn't be solved with my old 12ga SxS and a .357. I do have a torch on it though!

Either way, it sure does look mean!

To each his own right…I also took into consideration I am in a very hurricane prone area, and if something big ever comes through, there will absolutely be looting issues. Never hurts to have a little extra…

Sweet setup. I have the same Mako front-end grip with the weapon light trigger; I like that setup for not having to fumble for the light to turn it on, off, toggle, etc. I added a specops stock w/powerpack to mine as well. No laser, sight or sling...still mulling the need for those on an HD weapon.

that's a sweet setup. i had that model Mossie awhile back; had to sell it, but i'll probably buy it again. those lights are wicked; i think i might get that Hellfire, too.

i still think you should put a Knoxx stock on it. you might be a big guy, but your wrists will thank you later.
