Default Ouch! Me no likey shotgun pistol grip...

I recently bought a pistol grip for my Maverick 88, and went out to shoot it in that config for the first time today. I was firing #7-1/2 and some #4. Wow! was I surprised. The web of my hand was taking a severe beating on each shot. It didn't matter how firmly I gripped, it was all the same. Definitely took all the fun out of shooting that thing.

On a side note, the other drag about the pistol grip, is it makes it very difficult/awkward to get to the bolt release lever.

That's enough for me- I'm going back to my trusty shoulder stock.

Rufus

What brand pistol grip do you have? I have a hogue tamer and i shoot 3'' high brass slugs and buck shot out of my mossberg with no issues. Sure it kicks a little bit but hey that's expected. I have also broken both of my wrists and both of my arms ( bad breaks also) and it doesn't bother me too much.

Either way though, bummer that you are not satisfied with your grip.

You could always get a side folding pistol grip stock. Best of both worlds. Mine is six position adjustable and folds next the receiver when i want to go compact. Just a thought.

They look cool when the 105 pound Hollywood chicks blow the bad guys away with blanks. That's where they are best utilized in my opinion.

Mitch, thanks, I did consider that. But I'm a very no frills/bare bones kind of guy when it comes to firearms. I like to keep it simple. I don't care for all the bling and fancy accessories. I'm afraid it will just be a distraction and get in the way if the S ever HTF.

Going back to regular stock sounds like the right thing to do for you, but if ever you want to try a different set up I can tell you I am happy with my Spec Ops Black Hawk recoil suppression stock - comes with pistol grip so its a good combination. Does not hurt me at all - I could shoot all day with that set up.

Default Ati

I just got an ATI from Combat Optical for my NEF Pardner Pump 12(870 clone):

•Triton Mount System
• Constructed of Military Type III Anodized, 6061 T6 Aluminum

It fits just fine. I has a strange semi-jell portion on the back of the grip. I should be able to get out and try it shortly. Will include a pic when I do.
