Breaching muzzle break for a mossberg 500?
S there such a thing? If so where can I get one? I've built up a nice tactical shotgun with everything but a breaching muzzle break I see on a lot of other tact shotguns.

A breaching muzzle brake is for blowing open doors. Unless you are a cop you won't have much need for it. You can send your barrel into mossberg and they will port the barrel for $40. Your barrel has to be a certain length I am not sure what the length details might be. I ordered my mossberg. Yes, I had to wait a while but it was the exact gun I wanted.

Thanks it's what I'm looking for, do you know if there's a screw in one, just like you would a choke?

You would be better off with a breaching barrel. It has a bead and the brake is part of the barrel. Much sturdier!

I have to agree with the use of a breaching barrel. I didn't think about it because I thought you were set on a bolt-on, but the stronger barrel is the right way to do it if it ever might be used. Also helpful in glass-breaking, car-door-opening, jabbing close combatant that is get the picture!

Or... could hold the muzzle an inch away from the door.

Ammo is a bigger factor than the brake. They use a powdered lead for breaching. It dumps more energy and no ricochet.
