    I bought a Mossberg 500 Cruiser made in 2011 (90% sure)...does it have a removable forend? How can I determine this? Saw the "post 2006" disclaimer on ATI's website regarding their tactical forend. Sorry if already posted somewhere...noob here. :)

    All good welcome to the site check to see if theres a nut on the end of the stock fore end? if you dont see one its probably pinned it can be changed to use the ATI forend with a mag tube and nut.

    You need to resize pic. You can do it in Paint.

    Are modifications needed or will the ATI Tactical Forend work with what I've got? Thanks again :cool:

    Also, do I need to remove the tube and nut from the forend?

    Yes you need to remove nut and slide forend off the action tube. Then you measure the tube as shown in the pic above. Once you have a measurement you will be able to order the correct forend.

    Well, after all this I've decided to sell my 500 Cruiser and buy a 500 Persuader with 20 inch barrel. I can get a CDM Gear BMT clamp for my Streamlight due to extra tube space instead of replacing the forend (mixed reviews on most of the forends I have researched).

    Can't go wrong with a 20" Persuader. I also sleep next to one, with an ATI Talon stock.

    The ATI Tactical Forend has worked tremendously well for me. I took a bare receiver and built it up from almost nothing.
    I have been more than pleased with all ATI products. We are a Mesa Tactical dealer, I use select products from both for our
    builds. I have found after installing I don't know how many ATI Tactical Forends that they fit real well. If you do have a stock
    pinned forend, you will have to get a new action tube assembly and castle retaining nut. I got all mine from MidayUSA and they have
    excellent ones. 7 3/4". My own Tactical Persuader started out with the early ATI Talon with a five round mag and 18.5" barrel. The
    ATI Stock came with a five round shell holder. It now wears an extended 7 round tube with a 20" barrel which we ported. Bushnell
    TRS 25 Red Dot on a Mesa Tactical Rail. Mesa Tactical Sureshell Six Round Sidesaddles on all my Mossbergs. With the addition of our
    Shoten Armory Extended Slide Release Lever, all needs are met. The member above is right. Ya can never go wrong with a 20" persuader.

    So if I have the persuader with 20" barrel will the ATI tactical forend work? I wanted to add the ATI Talon to my persuader and was going to purchase the combo with the forend if it will fit
