I am not exactly sure if this subject belongs here, I hope it does, but here I go.

I just purchased a Mossberg 500 Persuader and I would like to get some specs for mag expansion and also a forend pistol grip.

The shotgun I purchased already comes with a pistol grip, 6-point tele stock and a 5 shell side rack.

I'm pretty much asking for points of reference, or places I can purchase mods.

It's the first time I've owned a shotgun, and the first time I've shot one outside of the military.

Does anyone have any ideas or recommendations?

Thanks fellas.

On the topic of Shotguns...

I had planned on purchasing my first bitch this year as well. However, I've decided to wait until this puppy comes to market. I'm looking for something built more for tactical operation rather than sport.

Needless to say, very I'm excited.

Never seen that KSG, but I will say that Kel-Tec has a reputation for awful manufacturing standards. Their handguns are often hit of miss as to if they fuction or not, and I wouldn't drop big money on a new product from them.

the mossberg 500 is a great shot gun. i have one my self. i only paid like 200 bucks for it like 10 years ago with a colapsable stock and a pistol grip. i take very good care of all my weapons EXCEPT my mossberg. i take it out and shoot the crap out of it, never clean it, and never oil it. i can honestly say that i have never had an issue with it. my only problem with the 500 is its not quite as simple and rugged as the remington 870 but that aint sh!t. its still an out standing shotgun. my brother inlaw pimped his 500 out with with black hawk assecories. he also put on a model 590 barrel with an 8 round mag extension.

Yeah, I've never been a big fan of Kel-Tec's handguns, that's for sure. But I'm cautiously optimistic here. The design is the first real evolution to the shotgun platform in a long, long time. I think as long as the mag selector mechanism functions as advertised it should perform capably. The firing system itself isn't exactly rocket science when it comes to a 12 gauge. I'll be watching closely as the reviews come in.
