Got the FAC catalog today and they have a conversion for the Mossberg shotguns (says it fits most models).

Remove your barrel and mag tube and attach teh conversion that has a detachable 10 round drum and a vertical grip forearm. Called the Sidewinder and made by Knoxx Industries. Looks bloody evil!

Sorry if this has already been posted, but if this works as good as it looks, it's gonna rule.

Conversion and one drum, $189.95. Extra drums $89.95 and a six shot drum $49.95.

A less expensive alternative is:

Insert broom into barrel,
Sweep away!

I agree that the drum is kewl, but it is still a pump action shot gun, so not really in the class of the real street sweepers like the Striker-12 and the USAS.

Yeah, not the real thing but I still want one.

My Mossberg 590 already holds 8 (plus one chambered). If that doesn't do the job at close range, I'm breaking out the flamethrower!

Any pics or links? I've got an old 500 that's been gathering dust since I got my 590.

Forgive me for saying this, but you missed the point entirely stealth! Some things just look bad ass. A postban AR shoots as well as a preban, but it doesn't have a flash hider or bayonet lug, so it doesn't look as cool.

Here's a link to the manufacturer's site:

Full write up and a few pics.

sk8brdnick, yes, this thing looks bad ass!

how would you install that?
I know how to take off the bbl, but I'm not sure how hard it is to remove the tube...

The mag tube is easy to remove. It is just screwed into the reciever. New guns are kinda tight though, it may take a little extra elbow grease to remove.

I tend to look at firearms from a practical viewpoint first vs esthetics. Now that I'm on track I'll say "Yep, it looks badass" and "10 shots would be very groovy in a 500".

I have their folding stock on an 870 and it is great. What I like about their mag set up is it looks like the weight would be centered between both your hands. I am curious how that would feel and handle? It could be very quick. I also like the idea of being able to have extra 6 round mags in your vest or on your belt. Could be good.

Even better on the new Bennelli after the AW ban sunsets in 2004?!
