Did this video help you?

Samuel Cabe: Hey Brad! What happened to the parts list from the Shockwave website...? They took it down? I need to know the parts needed to order from Mossberg.

Derek B: So you didn't shorten the barrel yourself you did the kit and any work was performed by your gunsmith and all u did was paint the durabake on it. i do love your paint job though and wouldn't paint the new cap

crazyfvck: As long as the gun is over 26", then it isn't considered an AOW. And if it is over 26", but it has a pistol grip instead of a stock, then it is not considered a "shotgun," and can't be considered a short-barreled shotgun :) Sweet gun.. I'm about the same gun in black, with a 590 front end :)

Scott Smith: I want to do one of these as a project gun,, very nice shotty!

Mohammad Al Ahmad: The true definition of gun porn !!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

cockerrocker: Don't you think your 500 would better be suited for home defense with a shoulder stock? This is a genuine question and not some kind of troll or criticism.

Tucker Dale: wonder if the Knoxx breacher grip is long enough for this

Ralph DeAngelis: I have a m500 and put on the birdsheads grip. It's a nice grip for the Remington 87 maybe but not for the Mossberg 500. The grip may be fine with a 16 or 20ga but the recoil generated by a 12ga made it slip through my hand slightly. it was just enough to allow the safety switch to cut the skin between my thumb and index finger. It wasn't pleasant. I was lucky to sell the grip on ebay and buy a assault type stock. 

savageproduction186: I was just wondering is the barrel legal? I've always read that the barrel has to be 18.5 inches long, is it different in your state?

J Martin: 590 only "real" differences [from 500A] are the "all metal trigger group and safety." and all metal safety. Brownells and Midwayusa gunsmith supply shops sell these parts. http://www.brownells.com/shotgun-parts/trigger-group-parts/trigger-group-assemblies/trigger-assembly-components/trigger-housing-assembly-prod9425.aspx http://www.brownells.com/shotgun-parts/receiver-action-parts/safety-parts/safety-hardware/mossberg-500-590-835-930-935-safety-kit-prod27426.aspx Other "cosmetic" difference is matte sprayed on finish or Parkerizing on 590 true mil-spec verson.... Your Duracoat fixed that. Some civilian market 590's come with plastic-polymer "trigger housing assembly" sometimes called trigger guard/trigger group housing. In 40 years I have seen "one" broken Mossberg 500 plastic trigger housing.. just one. Broken plastic safety button is common.... Brownells sells a really good enhanced metal replacement that is easier to operate with gloved, wet, or cold hands. When you go get those coyotes off the traps. You might want a sling or holster for that shot pistol thing-er-ma-giggy you got there.

Drapetomanius Grimr: So where's the test footage?

PedroPons240@gmail.com PedroPons240@gmail.com: How did you shorten the barrel or how did you get it?

Shannon Shelley: This mod looks KILLER! I really like the Raptor Grip and the foregrip strap a lot. It looks like it will save a guy quite a bit of wrist & recoil issues. But without the barrel/shorty mod, it may not fit in the tube. I just don't know if I'm skilled enough to do the barrel/shorty mod. It looks so BADASS though!!!

Asperix x: I hate living here in the uk... Stupid strict gun laws ( not just gun laws everything is illegal )

yo mama: How long have u been gay. U r lame as freak

Joseph Lubera: Good old tax stamp gun 

yo mama: Dummy rounds hahaha u r so gay

J Martin: Blow drier "heat" might loosen magazine tube to receiver glue to make dis-assembly of newer Mossberg's shotguns possible.

Karl Jackson: I second your comment about Shockwave Technologies. Marty is a great guy who is a pleasure to deal with, and that Raptor grip was the best thing that I ever did to my Mossy 500. It really *does* drastically reduce felt recoil. And also, it just looks totally badass.

SCWB BiRD: Do u know if Mossberg is selling the barrels agin??

J Martin: 590 aluminum trigger housing assembly http://www.brownells.com/shotgun-parts/trigger-group-parts/trigger-guard-parts/trigger-guards/mossberg-trigger-assembly-prod24369.aspx 

SCWB BiRD: WERE DID U GET THE SMALLER MAGAZINE TUBE AT?

JBrock7th: Hey I didnt see this question in the comments so I figured I'd ask. The new forearm you have on your 14 inch barrel, is it smaller than the standard forearm or can I use the same forearm that I have for my 500? Thanks, jim

Sacluti Tribe: Nice video. Do you have a tutorial video on how to convert the mossberg 500 into the 14" non nfa?

Drew Bratwerst: Is that an SBS?

OldSchoolFreestyles69: How much for barrel 

Sacluti Tribe: Great advice. Thank you.

bullboo1: A short but stock to put against the shoulder would facilitate fast sure aiming. A Laser could facilitate that also. I have a green laser on mine and 6 shot receiver mount shell holder one in the middle has a flash light mount in it with a tiny 200 lumen light. on top pointing forward. Both laser and light add very little weight and are not in the way. Its a proven fact a shotgun with a butt stock will out do a shotgun with just a pistol grip. You can save time and buy a serbu shorty which comes in several sizes and both Remington 870 or Mossberg 500.

seakul: Just a heads up, you should destroy the original pistol grip. Possession of that And your "firearm" means you are capable of manufacturing a nfa item, which puts you in violation of nfa. Just a word for the wise.

Andrew Ryan: Where did you get the barrel?

Pitman556: thanks. i am making a few videos on my subaru forester i lifted too. ill be checking out your videos and i will comment.

SHAWNELIASON: I want to see you shoot some buckshot! Should be fun to watch

short_green: Also where did you order the barrel from? Or did you have it cut down?

short_green: I know you said on your video you didnt want to get into the legalities but I wanted to ask if you did any nfa/atf forms or paperwork AT ALL. I very much want to create something similiar to what you have there but am new to firearm forms and nfa legalities. I just dont want any trouble.any info would be greatly appreciated. 

bobafettfan32: Looks like you're ready for the dead to reanimate and to start consuming the living.

Andrew Woods: god damn that's fine defensive weapon my friend.thank you.I now know that would be the perfect truck gun for me

survivaleveryday: I just received my raptor grip and ordered the barrel from mossberg. The color looks great BTW 

steve bledsoe: u have made yourself one bad ass weapon my friend. and that raptor grip.... love at first sight. someone should have designed this decades ago. 

Pitman556: im going to set mine up like this... but a 20" barrel and 8 shot tube. check out my videos dude and lmk what you think

Andrew Woods: would the grip fit a 20 gage

TheIndustrialrocker: I actually used my hands to get the mag tube off. It was hard as hell. The seal breaks with heat. I don't own a torch so I used a lighter. Took a while to heat up but it heated it just enough for me to break it free.

survivaleveryday: Btw pitch the pistol grip, there is a term called "constructive procession" 

Saku19: How's the Durabake finish holding up?

jrg10332: How did you get the magazine tube out of the reciver?

James Peterson: The difficulty anybody with a pistol grip/tactical stock faces with a Mossberg 500 Pump shotgun is accessing the Action Control Release located on the left side of the receiver behind the trigger guard. One must release their grip and rotate the shotgun clockwise/counterclockwise in order to depress the small button with their thumb or finger while at the same time dropping the shotgun down below line of sight and off the target. Not a very tactical approach, is it? Solution? Shoten Armory's Extended Slide Release Lever eliminates 100% of all of the above issues. www.shotenarmory.com

Brad C: Thanks! I had fun putting it together. Ill be loading some shooting footage soon!

Brad C: Yes make sure you have your personal letter from the atf or go the sbs or aow route. AOW is only 5 bucks vs 200 for the sbs but check YOUR STATE LAWS of course. But I'm no expert so anyone reading go to shockwavetechnologies daught comm for all the info and facts about this setup.

Brad C: No def not. No you have 3 choices. 1. Register it as a SBS (200 dollars plus paperwork/wait) 2. Register it as an AOW (5 dollars plus paperwork/wait or go to shockwave technologies website and ask them how they recommend getting a letter which they display on their website making it basically not meeting the requirments of being a "shotgun". Its a long and complicated debate that I dont have the answers too but they do. But I have done 1 or the 3 and I recommend you all do as well. )

Drapetomanius Grimr: I've been wanting to do this for quite a while.

tarboy69: that is a sweet beast brother

crisy003: The human hair ones are better worth the money. I've worn them to 4 proms, 2 military balls, and I've colored them 3-4 times since I change my shade of brown often. The fact that they wash and curl just like my normal hair is amazing.
