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?
Asperix x: I hate living here in the uk... Stupid strict gun laws ( not just gun laws
everything is illegal )
Drew Bratwerst: Is that an SBS?
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??
survivaleveryday: Btw pitch the pistol grip, there is a term called "constructive procession"
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.
SHAWNELIASON: I want to see you shoot some buckshot! Should be fun to watch
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
SCWB BiRD: WERE DID U GET THE SMALLER MAGAZINE TUBE AT?
Andrew Ryan: Where did you get the barrel?
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
OldSchoolFreestyles69: How much for barrel
i am making a few videos on my subaru forester i lifted too.
ill be checking out your videos and i will comment.
survivaleveryday: I just received my raptor grip and ordered the barrel from mossberg. The
color looks great BTW
Andrew Woods: would the grip fit a 20 gage
short_green: Also where did you order the barrel from? Or did you have it cut down?
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
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
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.
jrg10332: How did you get the magazine tube out of the reciver?
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.
Saku19: How's the Durabake finish holding up?
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.
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.
Brad C: Thanks! I had fun putting it together. Ill be loading some shooting footage
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
2326TX: Well I'm not big on displaying my collection on the world wide web, However
your sounding a lot like people that know me. :) They all want me to do the
you tube thing. Guessing it is in part do to my firearms knowledge, my
collection, and the fact that I have the land to walk out side and fire off
my M2 or M1919
altezzu1: Awesome video. Did you special order the barrel and mag tube directly
through mossberg? How much were the two parts if you don't mind me asking?
Also how long did you have to wait to receive them? Thank you for your time.
2326TX: Wanted to add a note, I have two. The first one was built by Paladin Armory
about 3 years ago for me. I had them build it, just to make sure it was all
legal. You do not need a letter from the ATF, it is not an AOW. Bill @
Paladin is a class 3 manufacture, he will not do anything that jeopardizes
his FFL. With that said, if I have it out and I'm not on my ranch, I carry
a copy of the receipt that shows local LEO's it is not an ATF controlled
Brad C: Yeah that is on the list for me as well. I will check it out and possibly
do a review on it! Again your also welcome to do a video review on that as
well and post your vid in the comments section on my channel.
2326TX: If you manufacture the weapon it is 200 dollars either way, to transfer it
is 200 for the SBS or 5 for the AOW. :) Also, it is not a shotgun, it is a
firearm. It was manufactured and shipped from the factory as a PGO firearm
(your box has a label that states it is a firearm and must be 21 or older
to purchase) This is why it is legal by federal law to have the barrel
shorter than 18 inches, but like you said, check your state laws to make
sure it's good to go where you live.
Brad C: Well said. Thank you for the informative comments!
vettelover2009: Are you in Canada and if not...do you have a NFA tax stamp?...I see that
Shockwave says this is legal per the ATF, but he has a letter, and my
question to you is do you have the letter from the ATF? Also, do you live
in a state that allows NFA/AOW's...if not...be very wise with this gun
Brad C: I can def respect your right to privacy and not everyone is comfortable
putting things on youtube. Just letting you know you are welcome to use my
comment section for any photos or even vids you would decide to make. But
either way thanks for your support and help to the viewers.
Evan Pilby: I love how everyone thinks you are dumb enough to show an illegal gun on
YouTube. Im very sure this isnt illegal.
Brad C: I will add that the people at shockwavetechnologies are not as private and
can offer you much better help with this matter.
Brad C: Yes to my understanding you have to order them through the manufacture
(Mossberg). If I remember right the entire thing shipped was around 200 to
220 bucks. You can sell your old parts for 75? If you go to
shockwavetechnologies dott comm there is an exact parts list of what you
need to order. The prices they quote are pretty spot on if I remember.
Thanks for the comment and support. If you have any problems let me know.
Also Marty the guy that runs that site is super helpful! Good luck!
Brad C: Thank you for your comment and concerns. As stated in the video all federal
and state laws apply. I do not plan on displaying my letter from the atf or
disclosing my location to the public. My suggestion is to dissasemble the
gun placing it in the safe care of a trusted class 3 dealer. Then contact
the atf and get your letter. If this plan does not work then pay 5 dollars
to your class 3 guy and make it an aow. This takes much time and paperwork
of course. Hope that answered your questions!
Brad C: Thanks! Excellent idea. I will look into it and if I buy I'll do a review.
Brad C: Yeah I love mine!
9mrsimz: are you saying in this video that this did not have to be registered??
Brad C: Its all good. I appreciate all the concern and advice. But obviously its
legal. Anyone out there as I've stated previously and again lol and prob
will again make sure you get your personal letter from the ATF or register
it as an a.o.w. or sbs according to your state laws. Good luck and be safe!
Brad C: Excellent! You are welcome to post pics or a comment video showing your
guns in my comment section. Great info! Now I want 2 lol!
2326TX: Fox Tactical has a breacher scabbard for the SBS/AOW type weapons. Got mine
on amazon for about 24.00 and it fits the 14 inch shock wave setup. It is a
molle scabbard with a shoulder strap, so you have the option of shouldering
it, mounting it to a pack or putting it on a belt if you want to. If you go
to amazon, look for the one that is 19 3/4 in. OAL.
GM4ThePeople: Good job, looks great! Excepting "antique" pistols, this 26.5" OAL setup is
about the closest thing you can have to a Non-Restricted (i.e.
non-registered) SIDEARM in Canada. Would be nice to have a scabbard that is
suitable in regards to a) length, b) belt carry & c) retention, so this
l'il beaut could actually be carried as such. The "Eagle Industries
Breacher Leg Shotgun Scabbard" might fit the bill but seems to be
