Can anyone recommend a shorter stock than the factory synthetic for a 500? It could be fixed or otherwise. And I've seen the one from Cavalry Arms. Thanks.

Mossberg makes a "bantam" stock. Which is youth or smaller stature. I'm debating on getting one for mine. FYI

Hogue makes an excellent short stock. It has the rubber overmolding at the front where you grip it and is hard plastic over the rest of the stock. They also make a rubber overmolded fore end that is the most comfortable I've ever used.

I had some trouble with mine, too. I found that when i was all dressed up warm my arms wouldn't reach easily.
What i did was use a band saw and lop off an inch (of the stock!). And redrill the pilot holes for the stock rubber butt-pad. works good. A tad short for warmer weather when i'm not all bundled up but hey, it works.
My rationalization was that synthetic stocks don't cost that much. I'll modify this one and if i don't like it, then i can replace it. But why should i stay with, or save, a stock that i don't like?
YMMV,
RB

Thanks for the replies. I'll check out the Hogue and the Bantam pieces.
