I'll bet part of the confusion here is that the OP's screen name is new2guns. People read that and think "this guy doesn't know what he's talking about"
I see that the OP joined this forum in 2005 so guns probably aren't that new anymore...
So, if you want to put a pistol grip on your shotgun, go ahead. 9 out of 10 people who have shot PGO shotguns don't like them. And yes, if it says it will fit your gun it will probably fit your gun. Buy from a distributor that has a good return policy in case it doesn't fit. If you like the way the heat shield looks, slap it on there. It's your gun isn't it? You can add all superficial crap you want to it. Can't help you with a short barrel, try gunbroker. Or try a hacksaw. After all it's your gun.
