    The 4 shell Mesa is the only one I have considered because I is built nice and it will work well with my Mesa sling loop, but to be honest 8 in the mag and 5 in the butt stock it is pushing the weight limit IMO , and it wouldn’t be too comfy with my sling set up….I picked up a friends stock 6 shot 500 and was surprised how heavy I have made my shotgun, its fine but I really don’t want it any heavier.

    but its nice

    Nope.

    There's more clearance that it looks like from the photo.

    The picture makes it seem deceptively close to the trigger group.

    Yes it does.

    I'll post up a new pic with a better angle when I get a chance.

    Has anyone ever tried putting two 5 shot holders on both sides of the ATI adjustable stock ?

    You could certainly mount one on each side but that would hinder your check weld on the stock.

    ah yes of course, no wonder I haven't seen such a thing. Now that I think about it Me and my wife are going to have a dilemma on our hands. I shoot right handed and she shoots left handed.. If my shells are on that side she wont have a good cheek weld...

    I was looking at the“mossberg challenge" and I think the side saddle is covering it .....

    It is located on the left side of the receiver towards the back above the trigger group, so yes its behind your side saddle!

    Mossberg 500 forend hitting side saddle

    I have been doing research and found that some with the 6 and 1/2 forend tube in their 500's are having issues with the pump overlapping the receiver and causing problems with side saddle installation. I figured out that you can order choate number 02-02-06 or 02-02-26 synthetic forend and it will not overlap the receiver thereby allowing you to install a 6 shot Tacstar side saddle.

    Yikes...the Vang Comp is expensive.
    I have the 3 Gun one...way cheaper.
    I haven't seen the Vang one though.

    The 3 Gun just sticks the Loop Velcro straight onto the gun.
    The Vang screws on a plate that has the Velcro on it.
    The 7 round one has to be carefully positioned on a Mossberg 500 to not interfere with operation

    I had the same issue with my UTG tri-trail forend and TacStar side-saddle, but I just drilled out a new hole in the mount and moved it back to allow clearance. Keeping my forend was more of a priority for me than the saddle...problem solved.

    +100 right there!
    My wife always says that I have a gift for taking things that dont quite fit right and making them work for my needs.
    I salute all that take the initiative to MAKE THINGS FIT!
