    I have a 20" Moss500a thats much heavier than the 18" JIC Mossberg 500 my buddy just picked up. The Mrs wants one "like his" b/c of the weight; would installing a shorter magazine tube lighten my 12ga? Or are those JIC's made that much differently? His is blued and mine has a flat, parkerized type finish. Just can't see how the extra 2" brings that much of a weight difference? Any ideas? Thanks!
