    You, sir, are a bad man for putting that thought in my head.

    Concealed carry of a short barreled shotgun is legal with a LTCF in Pennsylvania. I'm thinking a Mossberg 500 or Rem 870 with this would be perfect. Wouldn't want on a full sized shotgun, but it'd be beautiful on a SBS.


    CT state law states that ANY firearm with a barrel length of less than 12" is considered a pistol. My permit is for pistols and revolvers...

    But it might be overshadowed by NFA item rules. Because an SBR is still an SBR as pistols can't have stocks. Seems the verbiage contradicts itself. I'm going to find out though.

    Received my complete 14" replacement parts over the weekend. It's awesome, or at least it would be if I could remove the old magazine tube from the receiver.

    Yeah, I need one.  There's no way I can get this thing off with just my bare hands.  Not even using my wife's ninja hands.  I'm on the hunt.

    And all these years I thought it was "barrel length no less than 18" AND have an overall length less than 26".

    The reason this Raptor grip came about is because if you put THIS grip on a pistol-grip-only Mossberg (commonly available from the factory) or Remington (rarely available from the factory), and then swap out the barrel for a factory 14" barrel, it is NOT considered an NFA item as long as you don't conceal it on your person.  As in, no $200 tax stamp needed. It's one of those NFA "loopholes" in the wording put out by the ATF.  I'm currently doing this mod on a PGO Mossberg 500 I bought, and have discussed it with ATF agents in our shop.  Trust me, it is legal, but ONLY if the shotgun started life as a Pistol-Grip-Only firearm (which means it is an "other firearm" and not a "shotgun").  With the older Speedfeed grip shown above, the overall length of a shotgun with a 14" barrel is under 26", so doing this build would be either a SBS or an AOW (depending on how it started life).

    I've got a 500 Tactical Cruiser with a Knoxx Breachers grip. I just measured it and from the "590" cap to the rear of the P-grip it's just under 27". Barrel would be 15". Currently, O/A length with the breaching muzzle is just under 30".

    I know Mossberg made short barrels for the 5+1 590 before. I think they were 16" but not sure. Gotta look into it.

    WTF is up with my Mossberg?
    « Reply #39 on: December 24, 2013, 10:52:52 am »
    Compare my pic to FCSJedi's.

    From the end cap to the edge of the receiver the length is 14.8" in my pic.

    Now I know the barrel length goes about a half inch into the receiver. I know this by looking at his pic and the fact that when I measure my breacher barrel it is exactly 18" to the edge of the receiver but it's 18.5" according to Mossberg. Regardless, 14" from the edge of the receiver doesn't go past my mag cap.

    I'm at a loss. How can this be?

    Your shotgun is clearly a TARDIS.  Be careful you do not accidentally time travel when firing it.

    I'm starting to think that new 6 shot Mossbergs have a shorter tube. 5+1 for 2.75" shells but only 4+1 for 3". Whereas mine holds 5+1 of either.

    It's the only explanation that I can think of. Because clearly FSCJedi's mag tube is shorter than mine.

    I put four rounds down range into a tree off my deck tonight. Dead limb removal. It doesn't feel bad at ALL! I think I actually feel more of the recoil in the fore-grip than I do out of the Raptor grip. I plan on doing much more shooting this Saturday when the siblings are up for family Christmas.

    My replacement 590 tube for the 14" barrel is definitely shorter than the tube that came on my 18.5" barreled 500. I don't have any 3" shells to see if it holds the same number as the 2-3/4" shells.

    Well, that it then. Shorter tube. Willing to bet yours is only 4+1 with 3" shells. No biggie. I still want to do the same as you. How much was your conversion (mag tube/barrel)?

    I can't remember off the top of my head, but I do know the retail prices listed on the Shockwave site are correct. I didn't pay retail, though, being a Mossberg dealer.

    Nice! Wish I could get some kind of residency discount seeing as I live in their home state of Connecticut. Perhaps a sympathy discount?  :rotfl

    With my Knoxx Breachers grip the O/A length will be a hair over 26"!  :clap

    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!
