    Safe to shoot slugs out of Aimpro Tactical Barrels?

    I was reading a few posts discussing the fact that:

    You cannot 100% safely shoot slugs out of a Mossberg 835 (non-slug) barrel, due to the over bored diameter of the barrel.

    I am not completely sure as to what the finished diameter is after Aimpro does their "Internal Barrel Work", but I am curious as too whether or not it is 100% SAFE to fire slugs from a barrel that has had this treatment done to it??

    If not, I will just be getting threading and porting done when I can.

    Awesome! I would have hated to get some work done and turn out that I could no longer shoot any slugs. That would destroy me haha :D

    I can understand that. You'll be good to go and can fire slugs with chokes too!

    Well I cannot get ahold of Aimpro. 3 Emails and nothing. My only thing is, I would like to keep the price in the same area of $70... For the threading that is.. I haven't made enough funds for the whole job yet.


    If I can at least get the threading done soon, I'd be happy. Any leads too machinists or smiths who can thread a barrel are appreciated :)

    Briley and Americhoke (R&D) can do threading. R&D can do magna porting as well.

    As a courtesy, may I suggest we continue this conversation outside of one of our supporting vendor's own threads?

    I've started a new thread in the 500 section here...

    Barrel Threading?

    28 inch barrel for 8 shot 500 flex

    Can't find any barrel to swap out the 20 inch that came on the 8 shot tactical flex 500. This is my first Mossberg shotgun, really liked the idea of tactical and hunting with same gun.

    The eight shot has a longer magazine tube than a std 500. You will need to replace that as well to get a field barrel that will fit

    ^ This.

    Once you swap out to the shorter mag tube, you'll have far more options...

    Welcome to the forums, Loser91!

    As said, you will be in need of a 5 shot mag tube. My mag tube may be on the market here shortly. Once you get 4 posts total shoot me a Private Message (PM) and maybe we can work something out for you, if you are interested in going that route for the field barrel.
