View Full Version : Is this "tactical" shotgun kit worth a crap?

06-03-2008, 8:29 PM

Well, the price is right, which probably means it's junk. I thought I'd get some more opinions on it before I trashed the idea. One thing that scares me is that they don't tell you who actually makes the kit, so I sent the seller an e-mail asking. I also asked for some pictures of it actually installed on a shotgun. What do you guys think?

They sale the same kit at Cheaper Than Dirt and they have a picture of it on a shotgun.

The stock has a lot of drop but that is needed if you are going to install it on a shotgun with a bead sight. I hear the fore end will not hold up.

Why would you want to do that to a shotgun?

Equivalent of putting the 4' spoiler on a honda...

Pretty sure that kit is made by promag, and its complete garbage. Save your pennies and buy a mesa tactical adapter and a real stock.

Go with Mesa Tactical or Knoxx. You will be a happier camper. Especially if you plan to actually shoot the thing.

Yeah I'd stay away from that one...

You may want to look at:

- Knoxx - http://www.knoxx.com/products/Knoxx_Products.php

- OneShotTactical - http://www.oneshottactical.com/merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=oneshot&Product_Code=FP-870SA&Category_Code=FP

Those are really your only options for quality stocks
Stay away from ATI and the like, they are cheap and will just make you want to buy another stock...

I have a Mesa Tactical with the Endine shot stock, but Knoxx is the best price for recoil reduction

Fit only for ninjas.

Knoxx or Mesa. And, if you have a Mossberg 500/590, and you really want to go tactical - get the Knoxx Sidewinder kit. It adds detachable magazine capability to your rifle, and reliably as well. It's funny, but I have yet to see anyone with a Sidewinder kit on a 590A1. As soon as I get together the money I'm going to do it. I have the kit and 7 magazines already.
