Default *Mossber 930 SPX thread*

Can you guys post your SPX's and what modifications you had done. So far I know for sure I want to get a Nordic charging handle and the Nordic clamp. Trying to decide if I should get a side saddle and what sling to get.

Nordic Clamp + Rail
Nordic Charging Handle
Streamlight TLR-1s + Remote Battery Door + Remote Pressure Switch
Elite Tactical Safety
Elite Tactical Lime Green Follower (I believe is Delrin? Or another high-grade polymer)

No sling for HD (easy to snag while moving)

Will order Mesa SureShell 6 carrier soon



But you've seen mine already

Beautiful! Let us know the range report!
Also I'm interested to know if your gas piston has a spinning ring that you can take off to clean or if they have in fact made the piston and ring one piece now.

We are working on an Urbino Pistol Grip stock for the Mossberg 930. This is more complicated than usual because the factory recoil spring tube is far too long. So we need to use the factory recoil spring compressed about an inch and a half shorter. Mossberg said this probably isn't a big deal, so we first ran some tests with the factory stock, but with the back of the spring moved forward:



We took it out to Burro Canyon and shot a bunch of stuff through it and had no problems.

Then we got the prototype stock made. Now we had to cut down the recoil spring tube to fit in the stock. We took it out to the range on Saturday:



We experienced double feeds with low brass bird shot, but buck and slugs ran flawlessly. One of the guys we were shooting with, who works for Homeland Security, said this was an issue common to Mossberg 930s, that they ran best with tactical loads, not low brass bird shot.

Does that sound right?


Full details of project here.

It does sound right.
Even low recoil buckshot (notoriously Fiocchi LR 00 Buckshot) has issues.
While mine doesn't have issues feeding birdshot, it doesn't cycle properly.
Did you clean out the gas system before each range test? Seems to help.
Anything I can do to help with the Urbino Stock PM me.
Very excited for it.

I shoot wally box through mine all the time. I have yet to have a failure. It may have more to do with changing the recoil tube

No, I shot pretty much only birdshot out of mine and have yet to experience a malfunction. The birdshot has ranged from the sale deals at Big 5 to whatever Wallyworld has. Even 100 rounds of the the dreaded Winchester Universal 8 worked fine.

I've had the opportunity to shoot both the M4 and 930SPX a bunch. IMO the Benelli is a much better shotgun. Yes the M4 costs more as well.

Having said that, neither of these will ever replace my pump Mossberg for home defense.

Yes, you're right about that. I got it mainly because if it ever goes to SHTF then it will definitely be useful. I will not put shells in them at the range though. It does give it a Zombie slayer look though

Get those Urbino stocks rolling, and I'll buy a 930. Hell, I might buy one anyways.

You need to mount a picatinny rail to the bottom of the fore end.

Problem is you need to do this without interfering with the piston assembly inside.

Yes I am aware of that. Hence the question of what was needed to get it to mount.

Gorgeous, both the 930 and M4 ! Makes me think I don't have to go elsewhere to follow up my newly drossed 590A1. I think I'm going to have to hang out with a few Mossberg people. haha.

I messed up the first time I mounted the rail, so I just got back to it and tried again. Filled the old holes in with JB Weld and it will never bust. If I wanted to make it factory fresh, I could probably just buy a new handguard for 20 bucks.
