500 20 gauge tri rail forend

I have been in search of a tri rail for my 500 20 gauge but can't find anything. there was a company that made a part so a 12 gauge forend could be used but they no longer make it. I have seen the Mossberg flex kits but it looks like they are no longer in production and i couldn't get a straight answer beyond that they would contact me if back in stock.

Any help would be appreciated

Ergo made my 12ga tri-rail handguard.

I'm not sure if they still make them or not though. I've been using mine since ~2008.

If you can't find a tri-rail, do they make a magpul forend for the 20ga? I know that's not exactly what you were wanting, but you can add Mlok rails to them.

How exactly would a forend mounted light assist your LE injuries? Or an angled grip? Mildly curious. And how did you wind up with just a 20-ga?

I shattered my shoulder on my strong hand and the elbow on my week, ended up with a 20 ga as a gift because they thought it would be easier on my shoulder. due the week side injury i sometimes have trouble gripping the forend so its an assumption that the grip may help. the light is just for fun lol

I think a 20 ga would be easier for you too.

It may even be easier if you have a vertical grip altogether instead of an AFG, unless it's a shockwave. I used a vertical grip for a long time.

Since I don't know you, you'd know more whether you think you can handle it than I do, but I wanted to let you know that you could consider it.

Thanks man, I appreciate any input

The one I used for years on my 12 gauge ergo tri-rail was a Tango Down brand. The full sized one.

I would often have to hike for extended distances while at my old job, so I would carry the gun using the front grip in my left hand and could tuck the butt of the gun underneath of my left arm.

It was a huge improvement carrying the gun vertically rather than horizontally.

Edit to add:

GG&G makes a modified 20ga magpul forend.
https://www.gggaz.com/magpul-forearm-for-mossberg-20ga-shockwave.html

Which allows you to use either a magpul mlok afg or vertical grip. And can install rails. So, even if you can't find an ergo version, that would probably be the next best alternative.

I greatly appreciate that, worked in NJ so our accidental disability pension is amazing, so between that and I wake up every morning is a blessing trust me, could have easily gone the other way.
