Hello,


I have a couple questions to those who own a Mossberg 9200A1 "jungle gun". Have you experimented with buttstocks and pistol grips? I've read on another forum that Mossberg 500 stocks will fit.

I know Choate makes a mag extension for it but I also read that a Remington 1100(?) extension will fit.

What would be a reasonable price for one of these new in the box?

I'd love to hear anything else you have to add pertaining to this weapon.


Thank you

Get your original Jungle Gun parts here - http://www.havlinsales.com/
They have both the mag extension and the original folding stock. The Mossberg 500 stock will require some minor fitting.

I would strongly question whether the 9200A1 was really “New in box” since it’s been out of production for more than 10 years. They were never really popular and for a long time commanded a lower price, however they are somewhat rare. If it’s truly in a “new condition” it’s worth $500, but if you pay anymore you would be best served by a M930, unless you wanted a collector piece.

These are built like a Russian tank and the barrel can be used as a club in an emergency. Mine runs great, but they are difficult to reload in a hurry.

speed feed stocks for a 500 will work, i know this because thats whats on mine. cant speak for any other brands, but dont see why not.


and yes rapid reloading on one of these does suck, get an extension. it will look cooler too

Thanks alot guys. Is the reloading process just holding down the button while inserting shells? Any problems with the extensions? Which one are you using(model)?

The new in box one looks to be new and is very expensive. The seller wants $1300, YES, $1300 but he's willing to negotiate. Today I found a used one for $400 but i'm not sure how much I trust the seller.

How did you make that happen? the receivers are completely different.

Used jungle gun come up on gunbroker regularly for $300-$400. If i was going to spend $1300 on a shotgun it wouldn't be for a jungle gun.

Not sure regularly is the word but they do come up. The seller wanting $1300 made me an offer but it's still mighty high. I did manage to find a guy with a used one for $400 just waiting for a response.

E, what shotguns do you have pictured?

Does a speedfeed fit the 9200A1 without modification? If not, what did you do?

Thanks

Mossberg 5500/9200/930 magazine extensions fit the Jungle Gun, I have a Choate on mine.
SpeedFeed stocks were made for the 5500/9200. Model 500 buttstocks will NOT fit.
Standard 9200 barrels will not interchange with the 9200A1 either.
I have heard that Mossberg made a limited run of 24" choke tubed barrels for the Jungle Gun and have been looking for one.

a speedfeed will fit, maybe it was never intended to but it does. i will take a picture of mine tonite. it has a speed feed stock for a 500/590 on. its the short LOP pistol grip one that i origionaly got for my 590, but ended up on the 9200a1 instead. maybe that makes a difference, i dont know.

on a side note the PG stocks both look and feel like shit on 500/590. do not advise, unless your fingers are 7" long, and even then it just looks rediculous.







there you go, a speed feed stock on a jungle gun. no mods, just slapped it on there. all thats left to do now is drill it for ghost ring sights and its done.

Looking forward to the pics Slap.

As far as I know there are two versions of the 9200A1. A version that accepts 2 3/4" & 3" shells and one that just accepts 2 3/4". I read today that only the 2 3/4" version is "mil-spec", is this true?

9200A1 is 2 3/4", built to military standards and the actual "Jungle Gun.

There is a near visually identical 9200 known as the riot, defense, and police gun.
It is visually close to the 9200A1 but can use standard 9200 accessory barrels and the gas system is the commercial type that will function with about all 2 3/4" and 3" loads.
These guns did not sell well, don't really know why, and they are somewhat rarer than the 9200A1 Jungle Guns.
Might be a nice version to try and find on the used gun market.
The 930 Model now offers a similar version of this gun and you could also try to locate one of these.
The nice thing about them is you can convert the gun from a defense gun to a field gun by replacing the barrel.

The Jungle gun uses a heavier walled barrel and a slightly different gas system that is regulated to function with full power 2 3/4" Buckshot loads.
It also works fine with Heavy field loads 1/4" or heavier, and slugs.
It will not reliably function with light loads of any sort, including low recoil buckshot, at least mine doesn't.HTH

Thanks a ton for the pictures. So is that a Remington magazine extension and bolt latch? Why is the trigger housing a different color? What ghost sights will you mount? Will the Trijicon set fit? It looks as if it might be close enough.

Thanks again Slap

I respectfully disagree. Regardless of whether the stock holds shells or not it is a Speedfeed stock.

That IS a pistol grip Speedfeed stock.

yeah, i dont think speed feed makes a short lop pistol grip stock that holds +4 shells, at least they didnt when i bought that one. if they did thats what would be on there. as far as the regular speed feed stock, i cant remember if i ever had one on there or not. i was kind of playing musical stock there for awhile. i think i did at one time but i can say for sure, and im not taking the 590 apart to find out. i dont know who made the magazine extention because it was already on there when i bought it. but its kind of flimsy and does not have a barrel clamp. i may have at one time but who knows. im guessing choate or ati, something like that, but it works and hasent fallen off yet. the trigger housing is aluminum but anodized a slightly different color, my shitty camera makes it look worse than it really is. i dont know where the charging handle came from, again already there when i bought the gun. in fact if any one wants to trade for a stock one, im game. im not really that wild about it.

if anyone is looking to buy one of these and then modify it to death, just go buy a 930spx and be done. i got this one right before the 930 came out, but my only real complaint with it so far is the lack of proper sights. its a keeper.



and here are the sight i will get on there eventually. unfortunately that will require some drilling, taping, and brazing

Yeah, they didn't come drilled and tapped.
I think Mossberg started doing that right after they dropped the Jungle Gun.

I am going to D&T mine sometime. I want to add a Pica plate and a Trijicon dot optic to the gun.

I have a 9200A1, and after handling a 930 SPX at Dick's the other night (it had the canted front sight btw) I think I will keep my 9200A1 - it feels more solid to me, and eats anything I feed it. Birdshot, buckshot, slugs, anything. My only gripe is the sights. Right now I have a Trijicon tritium bead on it, and while it works it's really not tall enough to get the correct sight picture when the gun is level.

I have the Mossberg ghost rings on a 590A1 and they are great, so I'm interested to see how they work for you guys if someone does drill and tap a 9200A1 for them. I like the rail and rear LPA ghost ring on the 930 SPX, but I'm not a big fan of that tall front sight.
