    Well certainly let us know!
    You have a pretty good sized set up going there!
    Should be able to pound some pretty accurate stuff

    Brownells has been sold out of those for months, but I was lucky enough to actually win a bid on eBay for the same barrel/tube plus a set of ghost ring sights!

    Still working on it. Upset with the Phoenix Technologies forend...they didn't compensate where the barrel gets thicker towards the receiver! Switching to ATI soon...

    FYI, the Blackhawk Knoxx SPECOPS NRS stock (K08200-C from WalMart, etc.) bolts right onto the Mossy 500E (.410 pump) with very minor modifications to the plastic stock.

    Yes I plan to use a ported 28 inch barrel. I am going to remove the boss from the previous location with a lapidary torch. I have a lot of experience with lapidary torches silver soldering waveguides for DOD communications dishes. I will direct all of the torch heat on the boss and not the barrel. The bosses are silver soldered on the barrels.

    When I relocate the boss on the barrel. I will reattach the boss to the end of the barrel using cadmium free low temp silver solder. If the silver solder turns out to be not strong enough. I will use a TIG torch with .020 tungsten and 4340 .20 filler rod and skip weld it to the barrel.

    If you pull this off you may have people knocking on your door. LOL

    You may have people lined up to fix their canted sights as well. ;-D

    One of the things I love about forums like this is the diversity of people and skill sets. I just love the DIY stuff.

    I have had many people want me to do work for them on other gun projects. I don't do work for other people too much of a hassle.

    Here is the magazine tubes cut to length and I machined .015 x.375 off the outside and inside to make it a tight slip fit to mitigate any alignment and feed issues.
