Mossberg 500 13″ LOP TALO Edition

When it comes to shotguns, I train with them and I enjoy using them for some applications but, within the context of home defense, there aren’t many things I can do with a shotgun that I wouldn’t rather do with a carbine. That is why I prefer to keep my shotguns fairly simple and affordable. It just isn’t worth it for me to pump a lot of money into them.

Simple and affordable is exactly what the new TALO edition of the Mossberg 500 is. I have had great luck with Mossberg 500s with my admittedly light firing schedules and so, in the interests of keeping the cost to a minimum, they are generally what I use as my go-to shotguns. TALO’s newest distributor exclusive model is basically all you need in a Mossberg 500 and very similar to how I configure mine.

It is lightweight and maneuverable thanks to Mossbergs relatively lightweight 18.5″ barrel, aluminum receiver, and their 5 round tube magazine (5 + 1 capacity). It features a bead sight which I generally prefer for a home defense shotgun. Best of all, it comes with a shorter 13″ length of pull stock installed from the factory.

This looks like a simple, well thought out, and affordable (retail is around $270) home defense shotgun. All you need to do is stoke it with some Federal reduced recoil buckshot with the Flight Control wad and figure out how you prefer to mount a light to it.

It isn’t listed at TALO yet but your dealer should be able to order it.

The Mossberg OEM ghost ring sights that you will find on their 500, 590, and 590A1 shotguns are pretty solid but they are too large to allow you to mount a rail in front of the rear sight for use with an optic like a red dot sight. AIMPRO Tactical’s Ghost Ring Rail solves that problem.

The Ghost Ring Rail mounts to the factory drilled and tapped mounting points on the top of the shotgun receiver. It has a 4″ (8 slot) Mil-Spec 1913 Picatinny Rail section that can be used to mount optics and an integral ghost ring sight at the rear of the rail. It works with the standard front sight as a direct replacement for the OEM rear ghost ring sight.
