Yes this looks similar, except the one I saw had a breacher barrel on it. Look up the 930 tactical 5-shot. It was the persuader but with a barrel like the 930.

UnderFire: your picture looks similar to what I've been eye-balling, except the barrel is different. Look up the 930 5-shot tactical. It has a barrel like that one.

HawkI,
How about this one?
The one you're interested in...has a barrel like this Mossberg 930,
but it's a Persuader 500?

I have a 500A and I outfited it with a folding stock with a pistol grip. I have the 18 1/2 barrel for HD. I do have a pistol fore-grip but I have learned to love it, not to mention I can remove it if I really want for whatever reason. I find the pistol grip with a stock is a good deal, it feels more natural to me and gives me the option of shouldering the weapon or having just a pistol grip if I want for really close quarter HD situations.
I've shot with just the pistol grip while using 00 buckshot just to see how it would be and it didnt hurt me none.

UnderFire: I may have been mistaken when I was shopping around. Perhaps the Persuader 500 doesn't come with a breacher barrel? If it came down between the 930 Tactical and the 500 Persuader, I'd go with the 500.

My Mossy is a classic old & very used 500 with new plastic furniture & the 18.5" barrel. It is by my bed at this moment, closer than the snooze button. Consider one of the "side saddle" type shell holders for keeping a few extra shells at hand (inexpensive & hid some scuffs on mine).



I don't know if you can tell in the crappy celpic, but this buttstock has a full stock AND a pistol grip to offer some options for tight spaces. I have since added the shell holder (left side of receiver) and dumped the strap.

Default Mossberg 500 breecher.

[QUOTE=HawkI;272828]Looking to spend around $300 for a mossberg 500 shotgun in 12 ga. It's for home defense and possibly SHTF. I have narrowed down my choices to the Persuader and Road Blocker models.

I just bought a Mossberg 500 model 54125. Just know if you buy this gun, you will probably have to buy a forearm grip with picatinny rails on it if you want a light or laser. You can attach a picatinny rail to the receiver but a light that far back will cast a huge shadow, I think. I am still looking for a way to put a light on it without messing with the front stock. There is only about .9" of room on the tube and even less on the barrel. Anyone been successful in getting a light on a 54125??

I'm new to this forum, so I will try to attach a picture of the gun.

With the Persuader, a synthetic stock is attached along with a breach barrel. I myself wouldn't have use for a breach barrel. The Road Blocker seems to rarely come with a stock but rather a pistol grip and muzzle brake. I know MB's are loud, but what shotgun isn't? Does the muzzle brake make up for lack of control without a stock?

So basically my main concern is this: is recoil with pistol grip pump going to throw my shoulder for a spin, even with muzzle brake? Otherwise I'd go with the persuader.
Pistol grips are for firing from the hip, you try to shoulder fire with one and you lose a few teeth. Here's what I got...out the door for $279.00

Answering my own question. Finally found 2 different way to attach a light to a 54125 Mossberg. I still had to file down both brackets about 1/8th of an inch. Looks great with a little paint, sure beats replacing the whole forearm! Here are the products.

Amazon.com: BARSKA Tactical Red Laser Sight System with Flashlight…
