Pistol Grip only stocks for shotguns

I developed a sudden interest in getting a pistol grip only stock for my 870 and thought I'd start the topic. Who has one, what model grip do you have and what's your experience with it?

Years ago I tried the Choate PG and I remember it hurt my hand. I didn't like it and I think I threw that grip in the trash. Few years later I saw a Pachmayr PG and forend so I tried it on my 870 and it's been on that gun since then but my brother found a liking to and I haven't seen it again! He takes it camping for bear protection and that's mostly what my intention was for it so I'm happy he's getting good use from it. Gladly he's never had to use it!

I once again got the bug for another PGO stock so this time I ordered a Speedfeed pistol grip. I read that users report that it's design does a better job of managing the recoil...we'll see after it shows up!

My purpose for wanting a PGO stock is for the compactness and manuevrability it will give my shotgun.

I used a PGO stock off and on for years and my experience is that they can be dangerous to the shooter if he's not trained to use it. I've seen a shooter get a mouth full of recoil and need stitches on the upper lip to repair the damage. Most of us instinctively raise the barrel to sight the bead or line up the sights but with a PGO stock you need to be aware of how you are holding the gun and the effect the recoil will have once you pull the trigger. Keep that in mind and you should be able to manage this type of gun.

If you have a PGO stock on your shotgun I'd love to see some pics.

Thanks,
Seamaster

Most will tell you to get a stock, you are correct in stating stance makes a big difference in fireing outcome.

I have one just to have one, I have other shotguns to play with.

Winchester Defender "Speed Pump". I think FN is making them again under the Winchester SXP name.

I have a Speedfeed fixed stock that came on my Mossberg 590, but it is currently wearing a Knoxx BreachersGrip. I like it for the reduced OAL, and the recoil reduction works wonders.

+1 for the Knoxx

Really good grip. Easy to reach the controls from firing grip. Recoil reduction does work wonders.

Sling attachments too.

I like the speed feed birds head grip:

About 3/4's of the way down the page:

Here's an old pic of my Maverick 88 with Hogue Tamer PGO. Very comfortable and recoil is absorbed quite a bit by the Hogue grip. Very easy & comfortable for me to shoot 50 x 00 buckshot shells, and 50 x slugs out of it in one range trip.

I like that one too. I even have it saved on my laptop.


Here's mine, I just need to figure out a sling like the one above.

I like yours too! I'm trying to choose a forend to go with the birds head grip. Yours looks like the Speedfeed LE forend which I think is also the factory forend on some models. I think the other one is a chaote forend. My barrel will have to stay 18" long.

Regarding the sling attachments, I prefer the swivel studs like on yours. It's nice to be able to quickly remove a sling from this type of gun. I also think most of the time mine will be kept without sling.

That's the factory stock, i've got the longer Speedfeed fore-end that came with the grip, just haven't decided if I want to use it or not.

Yours looks good the way it is imo but I wonder if the longer forend is easier to grip in a hurry.

I should have bought the set because now I'm going to spend more to get a black forend.

If I find a fore-end nut tool, i'll swap them and try the other out.

For now the stock fore-end works fine and controlling 2-3/4" Federal Tactical OO buck is no problem and actually kind of fun....

I am a big fan of the Pachmayer pistol grip if you insist on shooting a shotgun sans the buttstock.

Since you already owned one you know why and I recommend you get another one.

Forget the Pachmayer forend, the Hogue is way better for that application.
