Well, I've been working on this project for a little while now. I've always loved shotguns, and I really wanted one for paintball. I test shot the RAP4 one at a paintball event, but the gun didn't prove reliable to me. I decided to build one myself that would be reliable, robust, & really cool! So based off the always trusty A-5 is my pistol grip Mossberg 500.

How it was made.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I started by Flattopping and removing the bottom lip off the stock A-5. To get the most realistic look I used the shroud, pump, & magazine off of a Mossberg M500 Airsoft gun. In order to fit my 12" C-series barrel on it I had to cut the vented shroud a little shorter. Once cut, I used JB weld to affix the shroud to the Barrel Adapter.

The next step was the trickiest. By using a hack saw & dremel I cut the metal pipe that acted as the magazine on the airsoft gun so that it had a flat top. By using JB Weld I was able to create a flat portion on the pipe so that it would sit flat against the A-5. Then I had to drill two holes with my drill press so that I could attach the magazine to the A-5 by using the mounting slot already provided.

Two coats of Krylon Fusion Metallic Shimmer, some stainless steel hardware(& a little modding to the grip so that the bolts would fit), throwing on the TechT Kit(Lapco Kit moved onto primary), & a DIY Tac Cap later, It's pretty much complete. All I have to do is make the pump arm not pump... I'm thinking of wrapping some electrical tape around the magazine so that it doesn't budge. I'll wait for the paint to set for a week before I attempt that though.

I will only be attaching a rail onto the Flattop if I can find a way to affix the Mossberg stock to the grip...

thats pretty sexy looking........looks really good.

....tis a shame its not an actual pump action gun though.....maybe theres a way to link the pump arm to your cyclone so it only feeds once pumped.....

....overall not bad.....looks clean and professional.

Thanks guys! I am working on a way to make it a pump. The Valve in the A-5 is giving me problems. Seems that even though I have removed the blowback action, the valve spring has enough energy to push the hammer back again. This causes a sputter of shots after the first shot. I'm working on figuring something out though, because a pump A-5 was part of the inspiration of this mod!

Pretty cool. 7/10. It'll go way up if you can get it to pump though.

I have no idea if it would work but check out the cup seal. I know on spyders they have a flat portion to 'em and you JB it to make it round and this stops the re-cock. Again I dont know if it would work.

And as far as that gun goes....OMG, probably one of the best looking A-5's IMHO. Normally you see the same ole same ole, M4/AK47 but not a shotty. Nice work.
