    What would you do if the only gun you could customize into a trap shootin bird bustin clay crushin shooter was a Mossberg 500?

    Yep just a plain ole $150 Mossberg 500 pump gun. You could modify the stock barrel but not change it. You could tweek the trigger but not change it. You could .. could ... well you could customize the stock but must use the stop LOP.

    Just what would you do ... ???

    Well you are planning to put alot of money into that mossburg ! So if I were going to do that , Id plan on long realationship with that gun . Cause you'll never get the money back no matter what you do ! In my opinion its a bad investment ? What your thoughts on that ? Try trading it for a Good used trap gun thats mechaniclly wore out . I bet you'll find a gun more in that range than trying to upgrade the Mossburg . Whatever you do Good Luck and Breakem all !

    Mossberg did make a high rib trap gun.

    Terrible trigger, but it would evaporate clay targets!

    Lumper, I would put a gracoil or something like it on first and have an adjustable comb done. After that try and learn to shoot it. Lump, I think with a good fitting stock most people could shoot anything somewhat competitive. Just my opinion. Kevin

    Just slap on a D&E "scope-eez" stick-on tapered soft comb to get the comb up where it should be and reasonably level.

    I too, have seen a Mossberg high rib "trap" model but I assume that isn't the gun the OP is talking about?

    You know, we all buy these expensive trap guns. Then everyone tells us that we need to shoot at least 10,000 birds to really get used to the new gun.
    I'll bet that if we shot that many birds with the Mossberg, we probably would be shooting about the same as we are now.

    Ken Rucker stock treatment Comb and bumpbuster, then keen sights add on adjustable rib some action/trigger work to smooth it out for doubles. If I had to.
