Mossberg 500 Breacher, adding lights, lasers

I own a mossberg 500 breacher model but the unusual design of the front end of this weapon won't allow me to fit any standard tac lights or lasers, i've purchased about 3 different mounts and none will fit, if anyone else has had success putting accessories on this shotgun please share some knowledge.

with all due respect, why do you want / need a laser on a shotgun?

Why would anyone want a Breacher barrel? How many doors do you need breach?

I once heard a burglar in my house. I grabbed my 500 breacher, then breached the door (I was in my bathroom), then cleared the house. It ended up being the UPS man ringing the front door and placing my deliver between the storm door and the front door. But the shere utilitiy of having a breaching shotgun in case I need to breach my own doors became readily apparent.

It's not a breacher barrel, it's a zombie core sampler... and the laser is for pink floyd light shows



He has it / wants it because he worked hard for his money and now he's going to spend it on something that brings a smile to his face... like it or not



as for an answer to his question:

Or you can replace the pump with one that has a rail like this

Apparently very tactical , not only do you have a reason to kill his doorknob, but you will let the intruder know you have a gun

I never thought of it that way. Do you mean that it isn't a good idea to buy a breaching shotgun for home defense?

I had a friend once who wasn't very good at recognizing sarcasm.

If that breacher is screwed into an accu-choke thread it would find itself in the parts bin and a choke replacing it.

i actually have a novelty laser which fits the universal laser mount for my taurus, it contains fun laser designs like a circle, a naked girl, a smiley face, and my favorite a heart. a flashlight would be useful in any scenario. the breacher barrel makes no more sense than a 30rnd mag on an AR or a tactical stock on a mini 14. red dawn is not a documentry, doors will not need breached, 30 or more enemies are not coming out of the hills but for there to be a heart or a smiley face projected at where my shotgun aims is a truly special feeling.

That's brings to mind a good idea. Has anyone tried to put one of those spoilers you always see on the tiny economy cars of the Slow and Furious crowd? One of those would look very custom and tactical on the back of that Mossberg with the Barrett brake on the front. Maybe some ominous red neon lights under the Mossberg too. Now that would be custom and tactical.
