Gotcha. Very cool. As long as the base model was a pistol-grip-only model "other firearm", and it complies with any state codes, sounds like you're good to go!


Yup. Mossberg Tactical Cruisers come with P-grip installed. Just need to buy the mag tube and barrel.

Tho part of me wants to get another 500 Cruiser, get a Vang Comp +1 kit for the one I have now making it 7+1, get another Breachers grip for the plain 500 Cruiser as well as the 14" conversion. Then I have two. The 14" will be my NY reload. ;)

    You'll likely need a new action bar/fore end set, too. There was a difference in the one I bought (shorter) compared to the original one. You can use the same mag tube cap, mag spring capture, and follower. My mag tube spring that I ordered also APPEARED to be the same as the original, but I swapped it anyway.

    NY reload for the win.

    I’ve decided that after I pay off the Savage that I need to send to Jesse (as well as a .458 barrel), and after the Glock 29 I will get a standard 500 Cruiser and convert that. I’ll take the Knoxx Breacher off of my Tactical Cruiser, put it on the new 500 and put on a P-grip stock and add a Vang Comp +1 extension to make my Tac Cruiser a 7 shot. That will be my shoulder fire gauge and the 14” cruiser will be its backup.

    It’s going to be an awesome 2014! Well, as long as I can fit a .44 mag in there too.  :P

    Well, that it then. Shorter tube.
    That's what SHE said.

    Back on topic, I really need to check with our gun unit detectives and see what their read on state law is, WRT non-NFA "short barreled" shotguns. I love that we have made this whole thing so convoluted that you can try to comply with the law and end up running afoul of another one ...

    Got to put a box of shells through my new toy this weekend. Unfortunately it wasn't in any organized fashion. We were shooting at a stump off my back deck, so don't ask for details on patterning. LOL

    First, this thing is ridiculously fun to shoot, and it's impossible not to look cool holding it!

    Second, recoil isn't as bad as I expected. I actually feel more of it in my front hand (on the fore end) than I do holding the Raptor grip.

    Third, shooting it one-handed is POSSIBLE, but not recommended. Not for the reason you might think, though. The recoil isn't awful, but because there's nothing holding the slide forward, and since pulling the trigger unlocks said slide, you end up with a partially racked slide after firing. This didn't cause any malfunctions, and a good solid rack to the rear ejected the spent shells just fine, though.

    Fourth, I may look in to doing something to enhance the grippy-ness of the Raptor grip. It's an extremely solid piece of kit, but it's a little smooth under the hand. I haven't decided just what to do yet, though. Maybe I'll Book of Eli it and do a wrap of some sort.

    I can off hand my Tac Cruiser as well and the same thing happens. Especially with 3" Black Cloud BB.

    BTW, I was looking at the Ergo railed forends for Mossberg. Yup. Two different sizes. One for standard and one for the 14" LE pumps.

    I've only fired a few rounds of Birdshot with mine.  I need to take it out and video review it.

      I may look in to doing something to enhance the grippy-ness of the Raptor grip. It's an extremely solid piece of kit, but it's a little smooth under the hand. I haven't decided just what to do yet, though. Maybe I'll Book of Eli it and do a wrap of some sort.
      Buy a Mountain bike tire's inner tube, cut it to desired length, take off the grip, slide it down the end where it mates with the receiver, re-attach the grip and you'll be GTG. (Or whatever size inner tube you feel will fit better, it's hard for me to guess from the pics.)
      Way back when, We used to slip 10 speed inner tubes on the butts of the collapsing stocks of our MP5Ns so the hard plastic butts wouldn't slip off our body armor when shouldered.
      I've used inner tubes for various similar uses since (like slipping over the grip frames of HK USPs, S&W MPs & CZ Phantoms to produce a thin non-slip grip surface) works like a charm!

    Having some fun with my Get Me Home bag tonight. Threw on the shotty sheath and I LIKE IT! I'm not reaching nearly as far as the picture makes it look. The photographer was sitting down. The shotty grip sits right behind my shoulder and is very quick to grab and easy to pull out.

    It's not exactly subtle, but it does seem very functional.

    FSC looks like Nightcrawler in Day Z with that rig. ;)

    Yeah, it's not subtle at all, but I'm not so worried about that.  Like I said, this is more of my "Get Me Home Bag" than a "Bug Out Bag".  It's my daily back and forth to work bag with extra emergency supplies, basically.  And since I work at a gun shop, I'm not worried about freaking out the boss.  Making him jealous, maybe, but not freaking him out.  LOL.  If I have to take the bag somewhere where a shotgun can't go, I can always leave the shotty in my car.  Same with the Ka-Bar.  And even though the routes I would be taking home (if on foot) include a major Route, it's also a very rural area and quick glances won't necessarily positively identify me as carrying a shotgun.  I can always throw a sock over the grip if need be, too.  Haha

    Too awesome.  I want that.
    Just say the word and I'll get one started for you.   ;)  Or, and this is probably easier, I can talk to your preferred dealer in your area and explain what he would need to order for you.  If he can't or won't get it, I can always do the work and transfer it down your way.  I think you could get away with this at your place of business, too.  Haha

    A "bit" late to this thread - but on the topic of grips, wanted you to be aware that Shockwave has new grips from what is discussed here. These old grips don't have the plug.

    Feel free to check out the details on the new grips: https://shockwavetechnologies.com/product-category/grips or there's a blog about Raptor grip colors available here: https://shockwavetechnologies.com/new-raptor-grip-colors
