fits Mossberg 500 OverRubber Shotgun Stock kit with forend
Mossberg 500 Overrubber
OverMolding provides the ultimate in a comfortable, non-slip, super smooth attractive finish that is durable and extremely quiet. The exclusive Cobblestone texture further enhances all Hogue stocks by providing an efficient non-slip, non irritating stippling pattern. OverMolded Stocks are constructed by molding a super strong, rigid fiberglass reinforced skeleton or "insert" that precisely fits the guns' action. This rigid skeleton is then OverMolded with a durable but soft synthetic elastomer (rubber). During the heat and extreme pressure of injection molding the elastomer adheres chemically as well as mechanically to the skeleton, resulting in a permanent bond between the rubber and the insert. The super strong skeleton gives the stocks their strength, and the precise molded dimensions provide a perfect drop-in fit of your rifle or shotgun. The state of the art elastomer material used on Hogue stocks won't harden with age and is virtually impervious to all oils and solvents found around firearms, providing years of dependable service.

FOREND WILL NOT FIT ALL 500's RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. This forend is designed to replace Mossberg's that have the existing 7-3/4" slide tube. That is, the existing forend is mounted on a tube which slides on the magazine tube, said tube is 7-3/4". OK now, Mossberg 500's have 3 separate ways of mounting the forend to the shotgun. First is the 7-3/4" tube, which will require nothing for this forend to work. Second, it will have a 6-3/4" slide tube which will require Hogue part # 05020 which is an adapter for the shorter slide tube. In some cases, it will also require that you grind down some of the ribs in the new forend to accommodate the adapter (the one i received had the ribs pre-ground). Third method, there is no slide tube. The forend on the shotgun is a forend/slide tube combo. This will require you buy the new factory slide tube (from some place that sells Mossberg factory parts like Brownells, Mossberg part#12362BL, Brownell's Part#631-000-295. This is for the 6 3/4" slide, as...
PRODUCT: amazing ! replaced the pistol grip on my "black water" mossberg 500. Bought the gun knowing it would get this stock set . Install easy and it looks and feels amazing. Instant "thunder ranch" shotgun minus tri rail plus rubberized grip/forend. If you have a breecher barrel and wonder what your 500 would be like look up "thunder ranch mossberg" I'm 6'1" and the short LOP isnt extreme it feels just right . If you need a bolt you can go to home depot and get a 5/16 Course thread hex head bolt . 73 cents (you need a 5.5 length . So buy a 6" and cut off a few threads , if you're not comfortable doing this FIND ANOTHER WAY but that's how I did it ) there's also a guy on eBay who makes these bolts and sells them for $12. Also no need to buy the wrench they sell to remove fore end nut. I used the shell stop (interrupter not sure what is called )
SHIPPING : They sent it Prestiege. I'd never heard of this company but it showed up a day early. I'll be looking for prestige...
This is a preliminary review since I haven't installed the product yet. I haven't installed it because my 3 year old Mossberg 500 hunting shotgun apparently isn't the Mossberg 500 they were talking about in the description.
Instantly, out of the box, I need a "Hogue adapter nut" to make it fit my gun. Of course this adapter nut, an essential part for many customers, isn't included in the package. I guess Hogue thought that would be too convenient for their customers. They'd rather charge us another $9.99 and send us on a wild goose chase for a tiny piece of metal they could have easily included in the package.
That damn little adapter nut is not an easy part to track down! Amazon didn't have them, MidwayUSA has them for $12.99 plus $3 handling, plus $9 shipping so a silly little part ends up being about $25, which is about the price of the entire forend!
Anyway, it's ordered and should be on the way, I hope it gets here (and works) before my hunting...
