CDM Gear Improved Mossberg Shotgun Safety

CDM Gear posted a picture on their Facebook page of their improved safety for Mossberg shotguns. One of the great features of Mossberg shotguns is their ambidextrous safety, it’s one of the better shotgun safeties out there. It’s not perfect however, many shooters find that they still have to break their grip on the shotgun to manipulate the safety. This isn’t the first attempt at improving the safety on the Mossberg 500 shotguns, check out our past post on improving the Mossberg shotgun safety.

CDM Gear who is known for ther various shotgun accessories has an improved Mossberg shotgun safety in the works. Their new safety moves the switch around an inch back and is wider for better control, CDM Gear claims you’ll actually be able to manipulate the safety without breaking your grip or finger position and you’ll still be able to visually check for the red safety indicator to see what condition your shotgun is in. So far CDM Gear has tested their new and improved safety on a Mossberg 500 with a pistol grip, a Mossberg 590A1 with speed feed stock and a 930SPX with no issues. No word yet on pricing or a release date. Check out for more info.

    Sounds like Y-man needs one lol.

    Looks backwards or upside down. I don’t need extra surface area putting the gun on safe. I need extra surface area and grip taking it off safe. Like this one . . . . sharp impossible to slip off of serrations with a nice large shelf to make sure you can always get the thing. These are on all my 930’s.

    %$#@#! tamper-proof screw.

    As a southpaw, the stock Mossberg 500 safety is already a godsend. Making it extra “grippy” is a good idea, though, especially when wearing thick gloves. I’d just like to see/have a shotgun that utilizes the Mossberg 500 safety and the Ithaca Model 37 bottom loading port for ultimate ambidextrous capabilities.

      You are looking at the Browning BPS. Tang Safety, bottom eject.

        Best pump gun on the market. Far higher quality than the Remingtons and Mossbergs that most people settle for.

    I have a 40 plus year old Mossberg pump and a newer semi auto I used for duck hunting, the safety works just fine with or without gloves, I guess it’s all up to the shooters needs

    I don’t know how much this one will cost, but you can get one of these enhanced safeties from Promag listed on Amazon for $13.99. It’s called Promag PM262. It’s probably not exactly the same as this one here, but it looks similar and provides the same function.
