I have a Mossberg 500, and I want some stuff for it.

1) Slide Tube Assembly

2) Police wood stock

3) Tri-rail mount that goes on the mag tube

4) Flashlight for it

5) Scope mount (maybe)

5) Red dot sight (maybe)

6) 18.5 in barrel

Pics of your guns will help me decide what I want for it. Right now I have an OD green stock set. Ill be willing to trade it for wood if your interested. If your trying to sell any of the things listed above, please pm me.


Thanks for the help
Shay

so to get that barrel, you only need a $5 stamp? Thats cool. Thanks for clearing that up Dris
No, you'll get fined heftily if you believe so.

The pistol grip itself is a $5 tax stamp. The barrel, being under 16" in length is $200. Also, since the overall weapon is less than 27" presumably, it is considered an SBS for more than just the barrel.

Both require the stamp, and in some states the pistol grip requires one too.

no this is how it works

-my gun is a factory made AOW which is a $5 tax total
-if you make an AOW is has to be from a shotgun that has NEVER had a buttstock on it but its a $200 manufacturing tax but $5 transfer tax if you sold it.
-if you take a regular shotgun and put a 14" barrel on it then its a SBS (short barreled shotgun) which has a $200 manufacturing tax and a $200 transfer tax

so if your making one on your own you have to pay a $200 tax if its an aow or a SBS

but if your buying an already registered AOW its $5-but you can never put a buttstock on it
if your buying a SBS thats already registered its $200

all barrels are just set up for one magazine tube length, so depending on your tube there are only certain barrels you can get, you can't extend the barrel like you can on a remington FYI.

But remington has ceased production of shotguns that utilize only a pistol grip.

So, unless you can find one stuck back in a corner somewhere that has a half inch of dust on the box, you'll get a mossberg or pay a premium for it.

No, then it would still be considered a shoulder fired weapon.

An AOW (any other weapon) can never have a buttstock installed on it. If one were to install a buttstock, it would be a shoulder fired weapon. The whole point of AOW is to not have that.

edit to add: if you ever would want to install a buttstock, just SBS it. (short barrel shotgun). You can install longer barrels onto them if you'd like, but it doesn't work that way with AOW's.

As long as you have a minimum 18" barrel on it, yes, you can just put a pistol grip on a standard Mossberg 500 with no problems.

If I may ask--why do you want it with just a PG?
