They deal in a lot of hard to find mossberg parts. If they don't have it listed on their website I'd still give them a call. May be able to at least point you in the right direction. I've bought a few things from them over the years and their service has been exemplary.

From their website:

The following listing includes the most commonly requested parts for the most commonly owned Mossberg® center-fire rifles. We carry many more parts for each of these models than we would have room to list here. On the flip side, while we try to be sure that every item for every model listed below is currently in stock, we are dealing with obsolete models as much as 30-plus years out of date. Calling us at 636-937-6401 is the best way to assure that we have what you are looking for. You may also inquire by e-mail to vic@havlinsales.com. Please note that while models may be grouped here for pricing similarity and space, each model is distinctly unique and we must have the exact model number and caliber in order to fill your request, i.e., Model 472PCA and Model 479PCB are very different models. Parts may be good condition used or new production, and depending on item, fitting may be required by a qualified gunsmith to insure proper function and safety.



and under the parts list for 800:

Stock new, unfinished walnut, from Boyd’s, 98% inletted with fitted buttplate, $75
Swivel loop and bushing w/screw $4
Stock new, unfinished walnut, $98% inletted, $75

Good luck. If they don't have it I don't know what to tell you. :)

Thanks for the lead, I will give them a call.

My buddy has offered to sell it to me for $50 - intent is to adjust the stock for youth gun. He swears it was a great shooter until the firing pin got damaged.

Heck for 50 bucks I'd still take it. You could always have a machine shop work up something using the original pin as a guide.

Roger that! I figure I am going to have to cut the stock down and generally "mess it up" for a youth gun - so cheap is good, especially if it shoots as good as my buddy claims and I trust him.
