Raptor lug moss500

Recommended Posts

Had anyone made one of the non nfa shotguns? Shockwave tech has what they call a raptor out to shorten the barrel and mag tube on a Mossberg or maverick 12 ga. Along with their pistol grip you can make your own non nfa shotgun with a 14" barrel.

Really no one? I also saw a company called 802traders they sell an already built mossberg pistol grip with 14" for 600 and a rem 870 version for 650, I think I'll go that route so if I'm ever ask by mister popo I can say "get I bought it like that"

I have an actual AOW and put the Raptor grip on it. It definitely reduces felt recoil. Although if one were trying to aim down the barrel, it makes it a little more difficult.

What is the real value here?  It does not look a lot shorter.  You lose ammo capacity.  If it is easier to handle with a different angle on the grip why not just do that.

It doesn't lose any capacity and yes overall leangth isn't that much shorter. But it looks bad ass. And if I want a pistol grip shotgun I want it as handy as possible.

 

And I just saw mossberg is going to be selling a 500 and 590 version with a 14" barrel, factory and in the video I saw it sounds like the 590 will have a 6 shot tube. Or the mossberg rep may have ment 6 shot overall capacity.

 

The real reason is I don't hunt I use my guns for home and family defense and target shooting and just fun blasting. I want a new toy and I want it to be a shotgun. I've had a vepr 12 and those are cool. Just longer than I'd like without going NFA. If Mossberg starts selling the factory version soon I'll buy that one. And there is a company called 802traders that sells both the Mossberg and an 870 version. The 870 only holds 4 in the tube but standard express barrels will fit and I love the look of vent rib barrels cut down short so I haven't fully decided yet.

For those in states where there is no SBS or AOW, I get it, but I wouldn't want to shoot one much. I'm just not a fan of not having a stock and manually cycling things.

IMO it's a clumsy gun made clumsier to save about 2"

 

If you want one of these get a serbu super shorty instead. $5 tax stamp and a decent trust and you are good to go.

But all those hoops to save what 5 inches? The beauty of this thing is no extra paper work.
