How do you plan on operating the safety?

Because Mossbergs use a tang mounted safety, you can't reach it with a pistol grip stock without completely removing your hand from firing position.

Not to mention most ATI products in my experience are very cheaply made.

Some appear to have improved, but the majority i've seen since about 2001-2002 are junk.

I have a 500 and use a Hogue Overmold stock. Grippy, good recoil reduction and fits correctly. Having had sweaty hands on a long gun before, this is a good thing.

If you're not, then I would say you are doing something wrong.

I have a Bantam factory wood stock with skateboard grip tape on the grip. I'd use a polymer one, but the wood is what it came with, and I haven't had the need or desire to replace it.


After a few experiences with their equipment, I wouldn't touch anything made by ATI with a 10' pole.

Also, if you're not using the safety, you're doing it wrong.

People with actual training, and/or who've been in dangerous places with guns.

Real easy to put a round in your teammate's back, and even with armor on, he won't appreciate that.

Muzzle discipline and trigger discipline go hand in hand, but mistakes happen. On target OFF SAFE. Off target, ON SAFE except in a very few instances.

One reason the conventional stock and Mossberg work well together.

Depends what kind of training. LEO? Probably safety on. Mil? No way in hell you walk into danger with the safety on, target identified or not.

Depends on the unit and depends on just how trained.

AR safeties make it very easy to go off target, on safe.

I've had unit level trainers preach 'my finger is my safety' quite a few times. Also had a kid put a round in his own knee.

Safeties have a place, and they're not hard to use.

Kyle Lamb, Larry Vickers, and quite a few others would bang this into your head.

Pump shotguns carried chamber empty are the only time I'd differ, because it's chamber empty. Soon as the chamber's loaded and you're off target...... safe that piece.

A few personal notes from my experience:

#1 I have an ATI six-position stock that has been flawless for years.

#2 I can put the safety on/off AND fire the gun. It can be done, just not a standard grip.

#3 My approach is that under stress/duress, I put the safety off and leave it off. I have no problem putting my hand in whatever position necessary to operate the safety because I will not be doing that again until I feel it is safe to put the gun down. If it is not safe to do that, it is not safe to have the safety off.

I will agree - the conventional stock is well suited to Mossberg.

Personally, I am waiting to see if Magpul is going to introduce there new stocks for Mossbergs at the shot show, the ones they did for the 870 look rather promising.

Just checked Magpul's website, the SGA stock is now listed for Mossberg shotguns!!!, just in time for the SHOT show.
