Modifying a shotgun with a pistol grip can modify the way the gun shoots by cutting down on recoil or changing the length of pull. A grip could also support single-handed shooting, which might be beneficial when you need a free hand. These grips are more often used in tactical settings rather than while hunting.Content provided for informational purposes only. eBay is not affiliated with or endorsed by Mossberg.
