Default What is a good & inexpensive telescopic with pistol grip stock for a Mossberg 590?

I just got the Mossberg 590 and I primarily will be using it for HD. One of the things I noticed when handling it was the factory stock is a little cumbersome in tight quarters, however I do not want to go with a pistol grip alone. I was thinking a telescopic stock would be perfect for my needs.

What is a quality telescopic stock with a pistol grip that is not going to break the bank? Links would be great… Thanks

I use a Knoxx SpecOps NRS and am quite pleased with it.

However, it does lower the gun relative to your shoulder and will make looking down the barrel extremely awkward. This stock is geared more toward the use of optics. If you want to shoot skeet or go duck hunting I wouldn't recommend it. You may or may not want to purchase an adjustable cheek rest.

EDIT: I just re-read your post. Since you are using the gun primarily for self defense, leave the stock alone. The standard stock is lightweight and fast without a bunch of crap sticking out to get caught on stuff. For self defense, avoid anything but simplicity. Simple is fast and in a gunfight, the winner isn't determined by who has the best gadget but by who gets off the first shot.

That would eliminate ATI, TAPCO, etc.

I have the spec ops NRS Gen2 and it is angled pretty close to the factory stock. Sight picture with the bead is great.

This looks like a good one, and isn't Tapco/ATI

http://www.themakogroup.com/product_p/agmf500-fk.htm

and a fancier one: http://www.themakogroup.com/product_p/agm500-fksb.htm

You want quality, you gotta pay for it. Don't settle for Tapco and ATI, especially when it comes to HD.

I have the ATI one. It's a flimsy POS but it did what I wanted it to do which was shorten the overall lentght of the gun. Not concerned with having to buttstroke people. It does just fine for the price.

I've been happy with a Phoenix Technology Field Series installed on my Maverick 88.

An added bonus is it comes with a shell carrier for the stock.

Is Tapco/ATI that bad?

I have the ATI Talon and it works fine. I've shot many 2.75" 00-bucks and some 3" slugs with no issues.

One thing to keep in mind is that a standard stock actually slopes down slightly which brings the shotgun "up" when the stock is in the shoulder pocket. Some adjustable/pg stocks mimic this and some don't.

The ATI Talon stock comes straight back (think AR-15 stock) which "lowers" the shotgun when in the shoulder pocket. It works for me because I have a rail and reflex sight on mine which moves the sightline for aiming "up" (bead is on the barrel but rail/sight sits higher). Keep this in mind when selecting a stock.

ATI makes a drop down spacer to fix that problem. I think it should have been included with the stock.

They do, but I think it's a separate order piece (not included with the stock), but I could be wrong.

It wasn't an issue for me because I didn't need it with the rail/sight added height.

What I meant was that ATI should have sold it along with the stock but they don't.
