    Looks like that grip could be used to file down your calluses, too. Take care. Tom Worthington

    I'm very familiar with the particulars of the configuration and it's legality, but knew from the looks of yours that it wasn't a 14" barrel. Did you do the chop, drill, and tap yourself? Oh and I'm assuming yours began life as a factory pistol grip only model, yes?

    Yes pistol grip firearm
    Yes chop job by me , was a breacher barrel with breacher cut off
    Sight was already on it in right location
    I did some barrel swapping with my other Mossburgs to make this as I always wanted a snub nosed shotgun for home defense and the fun factor .
    And it has been a blast at the range , although I admit 15 20 rounds is about all the funi can take

    The friction tape has been sanded down to provide a grip without abrasion concerns

    Good deal, you know we've gotta ask to clarify for any unfamiliar members reading the thread.

    For anyone interested, this type of non-NFA configuration is only viable if the firearm came from the factory in a pistol grip only configuration and has never had a buttstock installed. Technically the firearm is not classified as a shotgun, or a pistol, and as long as the overall length remains over 26" then the firearm cannot be classified as an AOW and requires no ATF approval or tax stamp.


    Nicely done and that makes sense.

    I have a couple with breacher barrels and the sights are set back in a perfect spot for the length you chose. Looks great...

    Pachmayr has a "revolver" style grip called the Vindicator.

    ^ Poblem there is that Pachmayr grip doesn't extend rearward far enough to keep the weapon OAL over 26". Installing the Pachmayr grip on the firearm pictured above would classify it as an AOW and would require ATF Form 1 approval and a $200 tax stamp...

    And IMO That shows the ridiculousness of the current state of laws.
    But they are what they are
