I had a brown laminate Boyd's thumbhole on my 500 for awhile. It was heavy but well made and attractive. Resale was difficult, nobody seems to want them.

Keep in mind that very, very few people will want to pay decent money for a cheap shotgun with expensive wood. For some reason, it was all the rage to put fancy wood on Winchester model 12s back in the day....I see them posted up for sale all the time at high prices, and they just sit and sit.........lipstick on a pig, you know?

Anyway...good luck.

The pic doesn't show the wood well...just that it's wood.

Bring your Visa cuz high end wood will cost more than the gun.

Not many calls for high end wood on a Mossberg, so prolly gonna have to have it made.

If you just want the look, also consider doing hydro dip. It'll be cheaper than making a wooden stock for a Mossberg.

'bear, I looked at youtube for doing just that to my 500[blk/syn]. I can not seem to find anything going from black to a wood grain. Have you seen one? It looks fairly simple. I may give it a shot. Thanks.

IIRC, calgunner Dhart posted a bunch of threads years ago about tracking down wood for modern Mossbergs. He also had a bunch of neat photos.

Do a google image search for "dhart mossberg wood" and follow the pictures to get details.

Why would you want to put nice wood on a firearm whose purpose is to be extremely weather resistant?

Dhart had some really great shotgun photos. Apparently he is a professional photographer. But most of them involved refinishing stock wood furniture, stripping off the polymer and giving them an oil finish. If I recall correctly he favored Minwax Red Mahogany stain / sealer, followed by boiled linseed oil. Sure made them look good! And a lot cheaper than custom wood. Might not be the best for weather resistance, as another member has pointed out.

Look at Cecil Fredi's website to determine what grade of wood you want and he will tell you who in your area can turn it for you.

I have not seen a Youtube video for it but why not just send it to Hydro-dip.com and have them do it for you? Its only $125 (stock and forearm), I think it is very reasonable. Pricing info here: http://www.hydrodip.com/hydro_dipping_service/pricing/

Thanks for the link. But, I think I'm going to go with havlinsales and get some real wood for a pretty inexpensive price. I'll call them Fri and see about availability. Thanks tho 'bear.

Mossberg makes an OEM high gloss walnut stock for the 500 Classic.

Give them a call, see if you can order a set directly from them. If you can't score those ones go with the standard set and refinish them yourself.

'ol shooter, in my case, you're probably right. Leaving well enough alone.
