    I am doing a project with a mossberg 835 and I need to change the forend(it came with one of those crappy ones with the action bars attached directly to the forearm). So my question is, do action slide tubes(mainly mossberg) fit any of the shotguns with a similair pump system? For example, if I have a mossberg 835 that uses a 7-5/8 Slide tube assembly(hard to find) could I use a 6-1/2 slide tube assembly on it, assuming I had an either adjustible forearm or one made for a 6-1/2, or would it just not function because the action bars are shorter(assuming the sizes of the bars vary)
