In digging today, I found this(see link below). I BELIEVE it's a direct replacement with no mods needed, and looks a bunch shorter than what's on there. It should clear the saddle area, ya think? At the same time, it'll allow me to put on my vertical grip(end goal) with a light on the side.

Anybody have any good recommendations for a weaver fit vertical grip? Everything I'd PREFER to buy is for a Picatinny rail. Is there any small, low profile conversion/adapter I might be able to pick up?
If I'm resigned to weaver, I think I might go with this little stub-

Morgan said:"A word of warning", ordered the 7 3/4 action tube assembly to convert my Maverick. It arrived and it was the correct measure for the action tube, however the action bars were approx 3/4" too long and would not activate the cartridge stop/release. Talked to Mossberg today and they are reshipping with correct length(?) action bars. Hope this soves the problem. Will let all know if this solves the problem.
Negative, in this particular instance the action bars are too long and would not activate the shell stop/release. The bars must be for the 835 series???. I don't really know but the "cuts in the action bars were too long to activate the cartridge stop or interruptor by about 3/4".With just the slide tube, will it work the bolt far enough? If so, you can remove some of the forend on the back side.
