Mossberg 500 JIC

Post by Fenris » Fri May 09, 2008 5:04 pm

I was reading this month's issue of Firearms Illustrated (I think that was the name?) when I found an article on a shotty made just for Bugging out: http://www.mossberg.com/products/defaul ... n=products

There's three different versions, all Mossberg 500 pumps with different finishes, each has seperate survival items in a floating,waterproof case.

ya theyve been out for about a year or so now.

the "sandstorm" one is new.

the shotgun is nice. but PGO (pistol grip only) is useless. the survival can is a joke.... but the tube is cool!

haha. iv considered getting one, putting a folding stock and my own survival pack. but i have yet to.
No one has a sense for the dramatic.

Personally, and I know this is a controversial opinion, I like pistol grip only shotguns. With a little practice, I've found them to be reasonably accurate (well, accurate as a shotgun can be expected to be) and fairly shooter-friendly. And the Mossberg JIC's are a pretty freaking awesome idea, if you ask me.

I like that Mossberg is getting people thinking about disaster preparedness. It isn't a bad package Mossberg put together.

IMHO they should have a Speedfeed "sawed-off"/bird's head grip on it instead of a standard pistol grip. They could make the tube smaller then.

The universal response I've heard regarding these is, "Cool! They come ready to bury once the black helicopters/blue helmets/JBTs get turned loose..." :lol: I agree about the speedfeed grip, especially since this is a Mossberg.

I have a buddy that got one of the Mariner JIC's.

For it to be more practical, the best thing to do is pop off the pistol grip and add a Knoxx folding stock. It eats up some of the recoil, and makes it more versatile while retaining it's compactness.

+1.

There's very few situations where a top or side folding stock doesn't do everything a pistol grip only does - and then some.

I had a pistol grip on my moss, it sucked about 20 rounds of slugs or magnum buckshot and your hand would hate you. I got the knoxx stock and its worth the money, you can shoot whatever all day with that thing.

Good luck finding a SpecOps stock (the one Knoxx sells that has a telescoping stock w/ pistol grip.) Everyone's out of stock on them.
