KeyMod for the Mossberg 500

At the SHOT Show, Ergo Grips debuted a number of new KeyMod handguards and accessories. One of the things that received little attention was the KeyMod rail for the Mossberg 500 series of shotguns. This 6061-T6 aluminum forend has three rows of KeyMod attachment points: one each at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock.

Due to the nature of the design, KeyMod rails tend to be thinner and lighter than Picatinny rail systems. So this gives Mossberg owners a relatively lightweight option for attaching a white light or other tool to their home defense shotgun.

The suggested retail price is $117.25. The rail is made in the United States.

    Back when I bought my model 500 I paid 175 bucks for it new. Makes it real difficult to want to spend 117 fore a different foreend.
