    Hello all. i wanted to know a few things.
    1) i hear good and bad for the mossbergs.
    Im looking at the moss 500 3in1 home secueiry / home.
    2) the moss 500 can use up to a 3 inch shell. But can it use all the smaller shells down to 1.75" shells.

    The moss 500 3in1 i found for $321

    I have a Mossy 500. I cut it down to 19 inches and put a pistol grip on it. For home defense it is hard to beat a compact shotgun. That pistol grip is not much fun at the range. But it sure is easy to weild through a doorway.

    I'd take my 500A over an 870 any day. I have never had an issue with my mossy. I've had 870's right out of the box hit my bench. In my opinion the mossberg is a good simple design. Plenty of aftermarket options out there for it too.

    Thanks for the reliability comments.
    What about being able to use the small shells. Can the moss use all the small shells or only the 3" and 2.75?

    Yes the gun can take both shells, and from things I'm hearing both the 500 and 870 are having issues with the quality of their guns. but the two are still the most reliable pumps on the market, and there is always a chance of getting a lemon.

    Cool thanks i was wanting to make sure because the 1.75 shells will be great for the wify to shoot and still use the 3 in. For home defence.
    Thanks for the info.

    Can you add an AR stock to a stock Persuader with just a pistol grip? That seems to be the cheapest way to get what I want....a Tactical Mossberg 500. I can get a Persuader for $299, and a stock kit for $100 max instead of buying an already built tactical for $473 at Bud's. But will it work?

    The thing to consider now is if you want the new quick detach sytem they have come out with or if you want to stick with the tried and true mossberg design. In my experience its best to wait for them to work the bugs out but I havent had a chance to get my hands on the new system yet so I cant give you any personal input on it

    Been a lot on these forums latley on the 870 / 500 matchup.:rolleyes: Both are solid and proven shot guns and both have their pro's and con's. If you got either one you would have made a good investment. Good luck.
