Fits Mossberg 500 with 5 Round Tube
on April 10, 2013
I was a little worried about purchasing this for my Mossberg 500 after reading that you need 1.75 inches of clearance on the barrel and magazine tube. I have a newer Mossberg 500 with the 5 round tube, which does not extend all the way to the end of the barrel. When I measured the distance between the pump and the tube's end, it was maybe 1.7 inches. I purchased the mount, hoping it would fit.
When I received the mount, it snapped right on, but you need to make sure it's as far forward on the tube as it can go. I have maybe 1/32 of an inch clearance between the mount and the pump. The action works fine and all rounds successfully loaded after installing the mount.
The mount is fantastic and perfectly fits the flashlight I also purchased from Amazon (Streamlight 88850 Polytac LED). The mount holds the flashlight perfectly rigid and I have found no complaints! I would definitely recommend this mount if you're looking to only add a flashlight, rather than a picatinny rail on the forend grip.
