Where can I buy aftermarket parts for my Mossy on the Internet?

I want pistol grip on the pump, a shorter butt stock with a pistol grip on it too.
Also I'd like some nice ghost ring sights, and perhaps even a nice sling.

Thanks for the help!

Houge's makes aftermarket stocks for most current brands/models of shotguns.

www.getgrip.com is Hogue's website. Not sure about Pistol Grips for shotguns, though.

Try Brownell's for the aftermarket sights and other stuff.

First, BA/UU/R. Once the thing feels like a body part, then decide what will improve performance and what's just bling.

You should have a sling. The other stuff is optional and for the most part, bling.

Brownells is worth a look, but do little buying until you gain proficiency. Proficiency is what decides who lives and who dies, not accessories.....

I tried a grip on the pump and I hated it... If they were that practical you would see more of them around. Just my .02 cents.

It's sound like you wanted a front pistolgrip and rear pistol grips stockshoulder stock.

Try Choate Machine and tool Inc. at www.riflestock.com
They are one of the best known after market companies for stocks.
I tried the double pistol grip set on a winchester 1300 defender and it seems to work ok for me and for my buddy that owns it.

Oh yes the ghost ring mossberg make a set up that will fit right on your reciver. see www.mossberg.com
You have to pay a good gunsmith to put on the front sights though.

I'd advise against both modifications.


the PG stock makes the best safety on any shotgun into the worst safety on any shotgun.


PG forends are actually slower to pump, and Screw up the pointability of the gun because they change where your front hand indexes.

I agree.
It looks cool and probably is more ergonomic when offhand shooting, but it turns your rear hand into a pivot point when you pump it and you end up being all shakey and that slows you down.
