Default Adding a folding stock to a maverick 88/mossberg 500

Anybody know of a good kit to add a side folder stock (without a pistol grip) to a mossberg shotgun without breaking the bank? Found a kit online for 170 which is almost more than I paid for the gun

I have an ATI on my 500, which has the pistol grip.

Looks like side folders for shotguns are slim pickings.
Let alone one that doesn't have a pistol grip. And they're all not that cheap.
$170 might be the best deal.

not sure if i'm reading this right: you looking for a side-folding stock without pistol grip?

if you're looking for a sidefolder with a pistol grip, you can find the choate's for less than $100 online, at least it was for me when i got mine umpteen years ago. the other sidefolders seemed more flimsy, though the choate is heavy

Yup, side folder without a grip, as both would make my shotgun an assault shotgun as I've read from the AW laws

How would one hold a non piztol-grip folded stock (if such a thing even exists) shotgun? Nowhere near a combat grip that's for sure, pretty much fore-end only, deploying the stock from fold would probably be awkward.

FWIW, the safety on the 500 isn't in a good place for an AR style grip. The Maverick i).
