So I was saving up for a Beretta 92FS M9A1 and was about halfway there when my Gun Guy decided to throw out a sale on some Mossberg shotguns. I took a quick count and came back with Seven 12 gauge shotguns and an assortment of other calibers scattered throughout the house and safe and told him, "No thanks"...
On the 27th off June, after work, I went to see him and ended up filling out the DROS for a Mossberg 500 Persuader Model #50521 12 Gauge.
In the mail already is an assortment of Mall Ninja necessities: NcStar Shotgun Scabbard, Hogue Stock Tamer Shotgun Pistol Grip & Forend, UTG Weaver Picatinny Style Tactical Low Profile Mount, Hogue Stock Forend Adapter Nut, Uncle Mike's Quick Detach Moss 500 Bolt Set Sling Swivels, BlackHawk Black Shotgun Sling, and a few other odds and ends...
Figured I would Home Defense this one up to its gills since all the others are set up for hunting, cheap Savage models, or just old family hand me downs and such...
Pictures once I pick it up tomorrow...
Question though for any who may have one... How much of a pain in the *** is the forend to get off and does anyone know if the forend tube is 6-3/4" long or longer?
P.s. Please don't try to get me to buy a "Tacticool Heat Shield" for the barrel, cause I will just laugh myself into a fit of hysterics...
Picked it up today! Added the Hogue Tamer Overmolded Pistol Grip and Uncle Mike's Magazine Cap Super Swivels as well as a Blackhawk Sling (which I don't recommend)...

I wish I could help but I got mine in 20ga. so the little woman(he ducks and covers!) will practice with it. The full butt stock is actually better for shooting from the hip than the pistol grip, if the length isn't an issue for you. I haven't taken the fore grip off.
Pretty nice for the price but it ain't no Benelli!

I'm a fat man so shooting from the hip is never recommended. LOL I'm definitely going to keep the stock buttstock, so I can change it out if need be at some point. It will basically just be a home defense/mall ninja builder. I'm not going to go completely mall ninja with it but I might at some point find some open rear picatinny rail sights for it if I pick up a little longer barrel for it. But I have plenty of full size shotguns laying around as well.
Yea the only Benelli I ever shot was my cousins who won it in a freaking raffle... Can't afford one of those though and I am not as lucky as he is.

Sling and sling swivels came off about ten minutes after they went on. Using the sling as the strap for the scabbard now which works surprisingly well and adds fifteen rounds close at hand (also looks cooler than having it swing a mile below the gun...)

Got the Action Tube Slide Assembly in today. Works like a champ with the Hogue Tamer Forend (with adapter nut)...
This is the Pinned Stock Forend (Note it has no tube or nut at all, strickly just the rails embedded in the plastic.

I purchased a 12 Ga 500 Persuader for my wife and although she likes it but it's too big for her so I use it and enjoy it. I ended up buying her a 20 Ga youth size which she can more easily handle and shoot safely.
I put an A4 collapsible stock on the 500 with the pistol grip. They are very simple and reliable shotguns. Not bad for Clays either.

The 500 Persuader is an excellent shotgun and one of my all time favorites. Mine is well tried and true. My Persuader and 590 both had the plastic furniture when I bought them. I decided to go in the direction of wood furniture as is just feels so good in the hands and makes the shotgun feel like a real shotgun (to me). Since this image was made, I had Kickeze recoil pads installed in place of the worthless recoil pads Mossberg provides, which took my LOP to about 13.25" and reduced the recoil significantly!
I prefer the 18.5" Persuader over the 20" 590 (despite the drop in capacity) as the Persuader handles much more nimbly and quickly. The 20" 590 would make a better hunkered down, come and get me shotgun, though, due to the awesome capacity. I removed the heat shield from the 590A1 as it only made the already heavy shotgun even heavier and was an unnecessary accessory in my view.
Pistol grips are generally inferior to full stocks for shooting effectiveness, except in very tight quarters like RVs, boats, cars, and tight narrow hallways. But when using a pistol grip on a shotgun, I find the birds head pistol grips to be much better than the typical pistol grips in terms of wrist comfort. You can now get birds head pistol grips for Mossbergs like this one on one of my Winchester Defenders. These allow you to grip the shotgun just as you would if it had a full butt stock.
The Defender with 18" barrel and long, one-piece mag tube offers exceptional capacity for an 18" shotgun with no funky mag extensions to mess with feeding reliability. The 18" Defender (no longer made) is arguably the best pump defense shotgun going due to slick action, compact size, and high capacity.

You will actually find it more useful with a buttstock attached. Try finding a nice folding one or one of the AR style adj. stocks. You will be more accurate and enjoy shooting it more.
