If you’ve owned a shotgun for any length of time, you’ll notice that they aren’t exactly made from the factory to be modified. As a result, many companies have to spend time developing new parts to accommodate the ever-changing trends and tactics that set upon the shotgun niche. Shockwave Technologies has just introduced their new Raptor F1 Forend which instantly turns your traditional shotgun into an M-LOK compatible rig able to accept almost any M-LOK compatible accessory.
New Raptor F1 Shotgun Forend From Shockwave Technologies
The Raptor F1 is not only a direct replacement for your standard shotgun forend on Remington 870 and Mossberg 500 pattern shotguns, but it is also extra space for you to add accessories. The forend adds extra length to accommodate accessories like lights or lasers and simultaneously serves as a heat shield should you choose to add that feature to it. The full details of the Raptor F1 forend are below:
