At first both the heatshield and light would loosen and move with repeated shooting, but after tightening both a few times and tweaking the tabs on the heatshield a little they don't move anymore.

I did decide to take the foward pistol grip off because it loosened up on me during a camping trip and I didn't want to loctite it on.

Let me apologize in advance for the poor quality photograph.

Here is my Mossberg 590A1 with Knoxx SpecOps stock, Surefire forend light and sidesaddle.

Stellarpod, me likely...

But I have a couple questions. First, how does the pistol grip get along with the tang mounted safety? I would think it would be a little inconvenient to have to reach around the grip to get to the safety. Secondly, I think I remember Knoxx warning that the Surefire forends were short enough that they might result in busted knuckles with the operation of their stocks. Have you experienced that?

stellarpod
September 22, 2006, 08:34 AM
MTMilitiaman:

Thanks for the comments. Reaching the tang-mounted safety is no problem for me. My hands would probably be considered on the smaller side of large (does that make sense?). I suppose it does require a more pronounced "reach around", but it happens mindlessly. Of course, I'm a left-handed long gun shooter that's been dealing with right-handed guns all my life, so I'm used to having to reach for things. ;)

I really like the Knoxx SpecOps stock. But, I'd estimate the perceived recoil reduction to be perhaps 50%, rather than the 90% they claim. Don't get me wrong, 50% is nothing to scoff at. If I had it all to do over again I'd still buy the stock.

As far as the forend goes, I've not experienced any difficulties other than some problems at installation. The Surefire forend has too much material in the "valley" that is positioned below the barrel. On a 590A1, which has a heavier barrel than the 500, I found that when cycling the slide back it would wedge into the base of the barrel near the receiver and jam up. A bit of judicious grinding work with the Dremel tool relieved this and it now works flawlessly. But, in my mind, with the rediculous expense of this piece of Surefire equipment it is TOTALLY unreasonable that I should have to do ANYTHING to this forend to make it fit. I voiced my displeasure with the folks at Surefire, but received no response.

My only other complaint with the Surefire forend light is that it is HEAVY! It significantly changes the balance of the weapon. In fact, with a full load of shells this beast is quite heavy at just under 10 pounds.

I've always wondered how well the shells stay put in those stocks. Do they ever fall out on you when shooting?


How do you shoot a shottie with no stock? Isnt it terribly innaccurate and isnt it hard to control?

I've found that with side folding stocks or no stock at all I can still hold the gun up and aim with it, I just have to be careful not to get whacked in the face with the recoil. With my top-folding stock I can't really aim with any accuracy but I can still point it pretty well. The benefit I see for a folding stock or no stock at all is the improved maneuverability indoors. In close quarters combat you might not have room or time to shoulder a shotty.

Well I'll just touch the high points. Disclaimer: the Folding Remington stock is only for transport in a vehicle!:neener: I would normally never use the gun with it folded and would not shoot it for long stings!:uhoh: . I am embarking on a project to shorten a Rem folder down 2" and put a gell pad and cheek rest on one. It will be a fun TIG project!

Any way the folder is my old 60's Wingmaster Magnum that was "Robarized" in 1987- early stuff! It is VERY slick with around 10,000 shells thru it since Robbie Barkkmann did it. It is now the stand by gun being replaced by the 1989 Police Magnum for classes since last year. The Police Magnum has my new fat profile 18" RS Imp. Cylinder barrel with AO nite sites.It has a 12" Houge stock with a 3/4 pad(thats an 1 3/4" of pads!!!) which is perfect for me and the pad gives me a nice cheek rest. The foreend is a "handicap device" from the 80's which allows one to whack the heck out of it if something sticks. Also provides a positive return!The light on the Police gun is a Surefire KL-5 in Vltor mounts. I like being able to take the light off during the day training! The single point sling on a GG&G adapter is a Specter MOUT, the folding gun is a Wilderness sling, notice how it could foul the pump ect. , which is why I like a single point.;) The side saddle on the folding stock gun is my own modifacation. The police gun has a Vang safety and the Robar has a Williams big head.
Because of the single point sling the gun when moving is flopping around or requiring a hand to hold it to body; that there is a Mad Dog labs experimental 870 belt clip. You just slide gun straight into the cross draw position 'holster' and it snaps into the kydex so it doesn't flop - NO hands reguired to hold gun now! And holds the 18" gun just high enough so you can kneel (at target butts!) with out hitting the barrel on the ground and stock on the gun is below your neck!:cool:

But this is what rests next to my bed: Benelli Nova Tactical. Night sights, stock machined down to 12 3/4" with Limbsaver, trigger smoothed down to 5 pound (from 14!). Custom big safety,Tactical Tailor single point sling,Lazer/120 lamp on factory mount,Sidesaddle. It is exceptionally accurate with slugs, the action is not as slick or short as an 870, but what the hay, no maintence required! It has good pucker factor, I can switch loads to shoot varmints (only thing I've shot so far) real easy with the handy mag cut off.

I think I remember Knoxx warning that the Surefire forends were short enough that they might result in busted knuckles with the operation of their stocks. Have you experienced that?

I am not sure what you are remembering, OR I am not understanding what you are trying to say.

The Surefire Forend comes nowhere near the Knoxx stock to cause any issues at all. The forend and stock are seperated by a good margin (6-7" perhaps) of the reciever. Even with the forend fully back, and the Knoxx stock fully forward (not that this is even possible) you still have many inches to spare.

From Knoxx's website:

NOTE: Shooters with SurefireŽ Forends installed on their shotguns may experience sharp recoil on their weak hand against the lamp housing. This is due to the rearward movement of the shotgun over the pistol grip. We recommend that you hold the forend at least 1.5 inches back from the lamp housing to avoid this painful action.

September 23, 2006, 11:38 PM
MTMilitiaman:

I believe they are indicating that, if the user doesn't hold the forend firmly they may find that the hand could slide into the bulbuouos protrution on the forend due to compression of the stock during recoil. They're therefore suggesting positioning the hand far enough back that if this occurs tbe hand will not be hit.

In reality, I have never experienced such a problem with mine.

They also bought the conversion kits, which include the magazine extension, barrel clamp w/bayo lug and sling swivel, bolts, and replacement mag spring. The kits were packaged in a neat little cardboard box with a big green "Remington" on the side.

About 14 years ago I found one of the kits, new-in-box, at the Cal-Expo gun show in Sacramento.

I did some reading after seeing a real-live 870Mk1 guarding a SAC missile silo in the Great Plains, and used a WalMart 870 3" Express model as the donor gun for my own 870Mk1 example. I used a Remington 20" smoothbore deer barrel with rifle sights to better match the magazine tube. The extended choke tube brings the muzzle just forward of the bayonet stud.

It's a heavy piece of hardware, probably intended to stiffen the barrel and mag tube in the event one really does use a bayonet to ventilate a bad guy. There are three bolts holding the assembly to the barrel and mag tube, which is why one will find a ring on Remington factory mag extensions for clearance of that offset middle bolt:

http://mauser98.com/870mk1leftblade.jpg

Some 870Mk1 shotguns had rifle sights, others had a simple gold bead front sight. I really like the tall front sight of the deer barrel, so I notched the barrel clamp to accomodate the sight. The metal heat shield on the barrel also got notched before parkerizing to accomodate the rear rifle sight.

In a departure from the original wood stocks of the military 870Mk1, I went with a synthetic. The stock is a SpeedFeed, sans shellholder, with Monte Carlo comb. When shouldering, the eye is in perfect alignment with the rifle sights, particularly that big front sight, which is the center of where the load of 00 Buck will go after it squeezes through the Extra Full Turkey choke. I enjoy tight patterns out to about 40 yards with the combination, entirely adequate for a defensive shotgun.

Not a bad tool for boarding parties, either. Note the young marine below, but I'd love to ask him what happened to the sights on the gun...

I stick with Specter Gear because it's the gear I trusted in Iraq.

I prefer a buttstock shell holder rather than a receiver-mounted because while the weapon is slung, those shells and the holder would be digging into my body.

I like a grip that doesn't overlap the receiver so there's less potential for jamming.

Hey TBL, it's nice to see a stock on that Mossburg. Most of the SECFOR guys here that have them just have the pistol grip only. I can't help but wonder how missing while making your wrist sore is a good thing? One guy has Knoxx SpecOps stock on his.

If they made me a SECFOR CO, my first order would be no PG only shotguns unless someone could convince me of a sound reason why it would improve performance/handling for them. Improving handling in the chow hall doesn't count.:uhoh:

Alot of tactical shotguns run side saddles. If you have one the forend must be short enough to not overlap the receiver and contact the side saddle.

Dave, The length is pretty good, I want to get some spacers and make it permament. Pretty happy with that stock too, great for SC and skeet and maybe one day hunting.

Going to add 1/2" to the CT also.

Still shooting Friday mornings? I might take a couple fridays off here pretty soon.

I did add a folding-stock/pistol grip later. As you can see from my door
in the photo, it was kind of hard to point with the original stock out the
window. You'd be surprise how well I could hit with an M9 from a moving
vehicle (during some training :D ), but I'd prefer the shotgun/00 buck.

I use to shoot single shot handguns in rifle calibers, so a pistol grip shotgun
was no big deal......

Dots are fun.

Shotguns are fun.

Shotguns with dots are even...funner?

:)

FWIW, dots make hitting steel targets at 200 yards much easier. 8" plates fall down with authority when hit with a max dram 1 1/8 ounce slug. They fall down fairly well when hit with a 7/8 ounce 20 gauge slug too :neener:

Who says that shoguns "have" to be close range weapons? When the only tool is a hammer...

I have to disagree.

Shotguns have plenty of range for fast-acquisition optics.

We've been seeing quite a few carbines and subguns with collimator type optics, some of which are used at very close ranges. If they can get away with it on a carbine, someone can definately get away with it on a scattergun.

As to whether an Aimpoint is useful on a shotgun is completely up to the user.

Oh, sorry I am late in replying.
The Mossberg Bullpup to slug gun is a project started by my
stepdad and finished by me after he passed away. The
executor of the estate did not think a partially modified
gun had any value.

The Mossberg Bull Pup has been out of production for years
but it was a standard factory model. That is a standard
Model 500 under all that Helen Ripley makeup.

The factory version had a carry-handle with open sights
on the heat shield and a forward pistol grip. I do not believe
the bullpup stock was available as a seperate item.

It is heavy, which dampens the recoil from slugs, but the
muzzle is so close to the shooter that VERY GOOD ear
protection is mandatory.

It's a combination of Breneke rifled slugs and the Nobel Sport 12 pellet 00buck that AIM is selling. Winchester cheepie is a little tighter the the NS 12 pellet. I haven't tried the S&B stuff yet.

I've shot quite a bit of S&B OO buck. They are definitely full power, but not too bad. Pattern is not real tight, but plenty good for HD. They are great practice OO loads. My prefered HD load is Hornady TAP low recoil OO buck. They pattern about 2.5 inches at 10 yards from my 18" cylinder bore.

Mossberg has Surefire front end, factory Heat Shield, Hogue 12" LOP stock, Side-Saddle, and Tru-Glo front sight. Single Point sling adapter is self-constructed and sling is modified UM's 3-pt tactical.

The "friend" is a customized Arsenal Inc. SAM-7S...they like to go to the range together and make loud noises.

Safe shooting,

CZ52'

The Mossberg was updated last night to add an improved home-made single point sling adapter constructed by a friend, and I swapped over an AK sling to it which has been reconfigured for a single point attachment approach. A dot is going on it in the near future. Will post update pic's when completed.
