Mossberg 500 Flex
So, I bought a mossberg 500 Flex for my first shotgun thinking this new flex system would be nice to switch parts around with ease. Now that I have this shotgun I've been searching the web and it seems there are not really many options out there. Whats the deal? I almost wish I would have gotten the regular 500 as there is a lot more forearms, stocks and pistol grips available. Anybody know when more after market products will be available?

id like to know too, seems it could do everything from home defense to trap competition

The Flex is a new system so its going to take awhile before/if there is going to be a aftermarket for it.

I almost got a FLEX but I will never use a pistol grip so I just got one of the ones with a rail on the pump forend. I've got one 18.5" barrel and one 28" barrel with the 3 chokes for trap, skeet, or hunting. The only accessory I really want to put on is a tac-light for home defense.

What kind of accessories do you want to put on?

Well, I definitely want the 18.5 breach barrel but I know that is accessable. What I want it a better pistol grip and some forearm options. The pistol grip available it stupid and has this odd stripped pattern. I wish there were forearms like the regular 500. I read a bunch about the FLEX system and got pumped up for it and it seemed like a good first shotgun choice. Now I'm wondering if I would have went with a normal 500. The Tool-less System is nice though.

I took the 500 Flex to the range and shot 10 slugs from it. No complaints. It seems a little stiff with loading the shells but everyone at the range said everything loosens up after using it a bit. It was dead on at 25 feet. Definitely had a kick with the 1oz slugs but that was expected. Had a lot of fun and can't wait to bring it out again for a few more slugs before the weather changes and I can go sport clay shooting.
