I don't think it's any better or worse based on what I saw in the videos and "looks" a bit strange to me however if it works for them or someone else, more power to them.
It doesn't look like he's using one. ?

Perhaps he's not, hard to tell but I recall those fellas having numerous shotguns of various types. Some had the triangle fore grip thing, some didn't.

Either way, I assume it's to assist in the type of "thumb forward" hand grip he has in the picture I posted and that they apparently use/advocate. I can see that with that type of hand grip on a standard, parallel to the bore, type of fore grip could cause issues in that it seems to "break" or bend the wrist forward and down a bit. The triangle thing it seems could help to reduce or prevent the wrist "break" or bend.

I dig it for a rifle with a handguard, no way I'd be putting my entire thumb on a bare barrel though.

Gonna move the Eotech up when I find a good ghost ring sight for the picatinny rail. Had the Burris Fastfire 3 on it but felt better with Eotech on the shotgun and FF3 on the AK.

Not really something I would have put together,but I got it for a hundred bucks from a desperate friend.It's a Mossberg 500 with a ported slugster barrel.Why would you need a ported barrel on a pump gun?,and how hard is it to change barrels?

Changing barrels on a 500 is really easy--just pull the slide halfway back and unscrew the cap on the end of the magazine tube.

It looks like it, but I don't think his thumb is actually on the barrel......

Well thanks to the forum regarding the advice given on the accessories on my 870 Express. Night and day from the stock 870 to now.

Mesa Tactical Urbino Stock
CeraKote 18" Barrel- with Tritium night sights
Six shell side saddle
Sure Fire M69 foregrip
Sure Fire TLR1 light
Blackawk vertical pistol grip

Just need a good mag extension, (had one and didn't like it) and a sling and she's done.

Magpul forend, factory Remington stock, Mesa Tactical 6-round side saddle, and inside there's a heavy sear spring and the carrier dog follower spring from a Tactical model. Don't mind the thing around the stock, it's just a wall hanger for guitars.

Not really tactical, but I call it practical tactical. My do it all 870 Super Magnum, this is HD set up, this barrel is the 21" turkey barrel which is perfect for HD and 3 gun I feel, but have a slug barrel and 28" barrel for hunting and trap. Just got done refinishing the ugly blonde stock in a custom stain and poly.

Tactical Shotguns

Just finished up this build. Always wanted a Marine shotgun so found a steal on a new 500 Mariner. Added a ATI Talon stock which is awesome and really helps with recoil, a ATI shell holder rather than the cheek riser, Meprolight front night sight, and a laserlyte tube rail for a light.

Tactical Shotguns

And the two together

You going to loose the factory stock? Even something like the Hogue would give you a shorter LOP, grippier surface, mad more solid feel. Or the SGA would be a great addition to the forend...it has stunning ergonomics despite the odd appearance.

Funny you say that... I've been flip-flopping on stocks lately. I picked up a Hogue 14" or whatever (not the 12"), and I've had a Mesa Urbino for some time now.

Spent about 4 hours at the range a couple days ago, and settled on the Urbino. Good size, good grip, very comfortable, points the best, and as a bonus, looks better than either of the other two.

EDIT - here's how it sits right now.
