I'd be amazed if Mossberg didn't have one available. Give them a call.

It's a common part. The Mossberg 500 forearm is the same type. Yours is a pinned version identical to a Maverisk 88 forearm. Any Mossy 500 "slide action tube" or a pinned Maverick 88 forearm will fit it perfectly.

SOURCE: Have I possibly damaged my Browning 16 gauge

Europe loads 2 1/2" and 2 3/4" shells for 16 gauge shotgun as standard and the US only loads 2 3/4" shells. If your shotgun chambers the 2 3/4" shells it should be OK. You can measure the chamber and see if it measures 2 3/4". You can also check your barrel for and bulges in it by looking down the barrel with a bore light shinning down the other end. A bulge should be able to be seen with the eye. If your gun has any bulge, do not fire it again. You will need a new barrel. But It should be OK and I would not expect their to be any bulges.

Just bought an 835 pump foerarm loose and wobbles is that normal ita a 12 gauge mag


assume this is a Mossberg. All pump shotgun forearms wobble from side to side and feel loose. As long as it functions properly (loads and ejects shells), nothing is wrong.

Mossberg model 88 manual


Yep. The back end of a Mav 88 is identical to the Mossy 500. Same gun, after all. The front end, forearm is the only real diff accessory-wise. You'd need to buy a Mossy action tube (the forearm steel) to put a forearm on your Mav. Stock, yes....forearm, no.

I bought a Remington 870 at Christmas time. The first time i shot it the shells are jamming in the gun. I took it home cleaned it and oiled it real good. Went and shot it again same problem. Either...


If the 870 is a Magnum model it should accept 3" shells. After making absolutely sure you have an unloaded shotgun, both chamber and magazine are empty, empty, empty, proceed with these few checks.

Assuming it may be a 2 3/4' model, have you double checked on the left side of the barrel near the receiver? There will be gauge and shell length stampings on the barrel. If you are jamming 3" shells in to a 2 3/4" shotgun you will get jams as you describe. Look at the empty shell casings if you have any and see if the shell appears to be damaged from the chambered and firing process. This could also indicate you have a improper shell length issue.
If you are shooting reloaded ammo make sure it has been properly re-sized, crimped and reloaded.
sloppy reloading of shotgun shells can cause jams as you describe. Improperly re-loaded shells can also cause leaks of bb's, (shot) in to the receiver and bore area.

Check for a loose bb. or bb's, (shot) in the receiver and chamber area. A lodged bb. in these areas will cause problems you have described.

Run your fingers along the barrel and visually check it for any slight bulge. If you detect or suspect a bulge do not shoot or load the shotgun until a gunsmith or the factory check the barrel thoroughly. If someone had loaded a 20, 16 or similar smaller guage shell in the chamber by accident and the gun was fired it will usually cause at minimum a stressed and bulged barrel. Many times a slight bulge in the barrel may not be visually obvious.

Most of the time if a 12 gauge shell gets loaded behind that one and fired you will have catastrophic failures, i.e. the gun can blow up and cause serious harm, blindness or even death in rare cases to the shooter. Shooters call this a "20/12" catastrophic failure. This type of accident is not to be taken lightly! this is why shotgun shells of different gauges are different in color normally.
Never ever, mix shotgun gauge shells in a pouch or box.

If you pump the shotgun too easily, (i.e. wimpy) it can jam up. Always pump, "rack" a shotgun with vigor. I'm not suggesting abusive action, just don't be slow or overly gentle with the pump action that ejects a shell and reloads the next one. Something related to this is if your action/slide bar is out of alignment or has become torqued out of it's proper alignment this will cause problems as you have mentioned. The action/slide bar is a long single piece of flat metal that is in alignment with the barrel and is attached to the front forearm of the shotgun. This is the flat piece of metal that actually makes the action open and close as you pump the shotgun. There is one on the left underside of the bore and forearm of the shotgun. When you pump the action you will easily observe it moving with your pumping action.

Check how the empty action feels to you. While dry-firing, (using an unloaded shotgun), does the action feel smooth or perhaps, gritty, sluggish, overly tight? If any of the later the you need to double check for debris, shot, excessive old lubrication, gumming of the action, a bent action/slide bar, etc. A normal 870 has a very smooth action.

Also, check the bore for any obvious nicks or obstructions that don't belong there. A good quality shotgun such as your 870 should operate best with very little lubrication. Excessive lubrication over time can cause gumming up of the receiver area. Also, improper lubrication products. Improper lubrication can cause problems you have described.

I am not a gun smith. I am simply an avid gun enthusiast. If you have any doubts as to anything that you observe while performing these basic checks on your shotgun, I strongly advise you to call the factory or take it to a local gun smith. Many gun shops will give your shotgun a courtesy check over and if you don't find a solution, many times they will within a few minutes. Do not be embarrassed to take the gun in to a gunsmith! Trust me, they will most likely treat you and you gun with respect and courtesy. Otherwise they won't be in business much longer.
If the gun shop fixes your problem make sure and purchase some shells and perhaps something else from them. We must support our small business firearms dealers and gun smiths

Hope this helps you!

What is the difference between a Mossberg 500 and a Mossberg 535 max 4.


The 535 is simply a slightly stretched model 500. It can chamber and fire 3.5" shells where the 500 will only handle up to 3" shells. The guns are identical in function and pretty much identical in parts except the stretched bits.

How do you load a 12 gauge pump action Mossberg (500)? There is no magazine for it, but, is mag ready. How do you manually load?


The loading port is on the bottom of the reciever. You mention that it is "magazine ready"? Mossberg shotguns have a tublular magazine underneath the barrel, surrounded by the action bar and front grip.

Loading the magazine entails holding the shotgun in one hand, taking the shell in the other with the folded end facing the front end of the barrel. Place the shell in the magazine opening (on the bottom) and push it up with your fingers and forward with the thumb of the same hand. It will go completely forward of the silver/blue lifter and stay there when you let go. (the action must be closed to load the magazine).

Alternately, you can open the action and pop a shell into the ejection port on the right side, close it back up, and shoot!

Hello, does the mosberg 1000 super 12 semiauto shotgun shot both 2 3/4 and 3 inch shells ? It show that it is chambered for 3".


A shotgun will shoot anything shorter than the max length specified. The only problem you may have is lightly loaded smaller shells may not cycle your gun. Most 3" magnum semi autos will cycle 2 3/4 inch shells just fine.

Remington 1100 12 gage won't load a shell from the magazine


Are you shooting very light load?
Have you tried different ammo?

Light loads may not produce enough energy to work the action properly.

If different ammo doesn't help, make sure the two holes inside the barrel ring are clean and gas from the barrel can pass through. Next I would check the o-ring for cracks. If you shoot lots of shells (competition clays) the recoil springs inside the stock or over the magazine tube may have become weak and need replacing.
