Mossberg 500 Problem ?

Well Men, and Women, might have a little bit of a problem here. Went to a gun show this weekend, and found a great deal. $150.00 Mossberg 500, with 2 Barrels ( 30" and 18 " ). Gun functioned great, needed to be clean, but functioned great. It wasn't until I got home, and compared it to my other 500 that I noticed a difference. The fore grip seems to be partially blocking the Elevator, not allowing a shell to be placed into the tube, when the forearm is back. The Black one is the One with the problem. Any ideas would be appreciated... Cost Etc...

My 870 will only accept magazine feeds when the forearm is all the way forward.

It just baffled me that the foregrip on both Mossbergs are the same size, just the black one seems to go back too far. I was planning on stripping it down, and making a 100% home defense gun. Was just wondering if I should worry before bringing it to the range.

When the elevator is down--you shouldn't be able to load the tube anyway.

Slap a shell in the ejection port--move the slide forward and then load the tube.

Don't think there's a problem here--cause that's not how it works.

That's how I was trained anyway... 1 in the tube, slide forward, load the rest... Just wanted to make sure because like I said.. Never seen it before. My two Remingtons or my Three Mossbergs. I appreciate all the help

Think it's normal.

Some 500's have a different fore end depending on the model & year. As stated the elevator is in the down position anyway.

*Small note if you run a side saddle mounted you may have a clearance problem unless you trim the fore end, change the fore end or get a side saddle that holds fewer rounds.*

Thanks. I was going to change the fore grip on it anyway. I'm going to bring it Skeet shooting this week, see how it works out.

Anyone ever use a pistol grip style stock on it? I heard pistol grips + Mossberg 500's don't work out. I was thinking more of a stock with pistol grip like this http://www.shotgun500tactical.com/AT...i-spg0100-.htm

Look at where the thumb safety is on the Mossberg and try to imaging operating it with your shooting hand in a firing position.
