A more solid stock for Mossberg 500

Hey, guys.

New to the whole shotgun thing. I just bought a 12gauge Mossberg 500 Persuader (20in barrel and 8 shot mag), and noticed that the factory stock and foregrip seem a bit plasticy, hollow, and flimsy. Any recommendations on a denser, sturdier stock/foregrip (in black synthetic)? Any special stocks out there that reduce recoil?

Thanks for any help (and links)...

Hogue is good.
Speedfeed is good.

The Knoxx Compstock helps reduce recoil, and I have one on my Mossy 500. If I had to do it over again, I'd get a regular Hogue or Speedfeed. The Compstock does have the Hogue overmold stuff, and the forend is also Hogue.

Recoil reducing...

The Knoxx line of recoil-reducing shotgun stocks will fulfill your requirements. There are a variety to choose from so you are not stuck with one design. The Knoxx stocks NET PEAK RECOIL (the measurable kind) by a minimum of 54.8%, and felt recoil by an even larger amount. The newest stock, the SpecOps, reduces felt recoil by as much as 95%. Go to Tactical forum and ask about Knoxx stocks.

Shotgun Stock

Consider an aftermarket wood stock...particularly a Trap Stock. When properly fitted will allow you to aim with excellent alignment of sight and eye placement. Particularly in low-light conditions. You should be able to shoulder stock with eyes closed and open eyes to exactly where you wanted to point.

Other stocks can be fitted with an add-on piece of wood (oak, etc.), glued in place and then hand fitted by a good gunsmith. Doesn't necessarily look great, but does increase shooting accuracy (Trap, Skeet, Sporting Clays, HD).

I understand what you're talking about, mine actually had a fine crack develop when it slid down and hit the pavement many moons ago.

Unfortunately, I can't remember what i replaced it with, and i can't see anything to distinguish it right now. I thinkit might have be a Hogue, though, since I'm fond of a lot of their products.
