NJ Legal Stock?

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I recently purchased a 590a1 shotgun and wanted to change out the stock to a FAB Defense Tactical stock.  However, I am not sure if it would be legal since this stock both collapses and folds to the side of the firearm. Thank you for any advice you could provide.

Here is a link to the stock:

Semi-autos are applicable to the “assault weapon” legislation. All semi-auto shotguns, and then semi-auto pistols and rifles with a detachable magazine, must follow that legislation.

Pumps are good to go with whatever “evil feature” you want. Just like you could put a flash hider, folding stock, and pistol grip all on a bolt action... and still be good.

@Teky0101, I would suggest NOT "upgrading" to the stock you linked.  The Magpul or Hogue stocks are the best upgrades to any Mossberg shotgun.  BUT, to each his own.

That folding/adjustable stock is legal on a pump.

I have a very similar one (same manufacturer, slightly older model but mine also has recoil buffer built in) for an 870 that I’m not using if you’d be interested in a used one.

Thank you for the response. I am curious what did you think of the stock? Was it a quality product? I also appreciate the offer on the stock but I currently do not own an 870.

Thank you everyone for the feedback. I am curious why do  you not recommend upgrading to that stock? I seems to be a quality product and I really like that it folds. My brother has a 590 with the magpul furniture and its certainly is a quality product. I just wanted a trimmer package since the magpul stocks are large.

You're welcome for the feedback.  5 reasons why sir. 

1.  You can not operate the safety easily with a shotgun stock on a Mossberg due to the safeties location.

2.  The check riser will smack you in the face.  It will become uncomfortable after a while and you will hate it eventually. 

3.  Pistol grips hurt.  They hurt if you shoot it folded.  5 rounds and your finished.  But even if you shoulder the shotgun, the constant recoil into the web of your thumb will get numb.

4.  Folding stocks suck.  You are not tucking the shotgun under a raincoat.  Also, the mechanism that locks and unlocks the stock will loosen.  Another part that could break is not needed on a defensive firearm. 

5.  Recoil pads are lacking.  The Magpul and Hogue stocks have great recoil pads.  Even the OEM furniture has a decent one.  Shooting that setup will wear out your shoulder.

 

Good luck

the more important question is what are you trying to get out of the stock.. you "like that it folds"... why exactly? I have a folding stock on one of my shotguns.. but the platform lends to having a folding stock since it is a mag fed AK pattern shotgun.. 

I found that I was faster reloading on a non pistol grip shotgun also.. 

I have had numerous stock setups.. and for a traditional shotgun.. I think the Magpul is where its at..

Ahh, I missed that you were looking for a Mossy.

I like the FAB defense folding/adjustable stock - lockup was solid, never had any issues with the cheek rest and the recoil damper was decent. Unlike RayRay's dainty paws, I didn't have any discomfort issues with the pistol grip when firing with the stock folded or unfolded.

However I decided that I wanted a receiver-mounted shotshell holder more than I wanted a folding stock in my HD shotty, so I got a magpul fixed instead.  Was saving the folding stock in case I came across a cheap 870 so I could have a "truck" shotty, just haven't come across the right deal yet.

    • I used to fly out of Newark with some regularity with handguns, but it's been at least 10 years.   I'd get there plenty early, and bring with me copies of the airline policy on checking guns, and the Federal law that backed up the airline policy...because occasionally you'd get a ticket agent who was convinced that it couldn't possibly be legal, and you need to be able to convince them that they need to check with a supervisor instead of just telling you 'no'.   But usually it was straightforward, at least back then. Assuming they still use the orange 'Firearm' tags that you sign certifying the gun is unloaded, etc, those tags go INSIDE the suitcase.  Many years ago they had to go on the outside, which was like a big fluorescent 'Steal Me' sign on your suitcase.   That policy changed to inside-the bag quite a while ago, but you don't want the one agent who didn't get the memo to put it on the outside of your bag. I wonder if shipping the air pistol is an option?  NJ would probably consider it illegal, as they pretend it's a real gun, but wherever you are going almost certainly knows better...and the Feds don't care.   But that might leave you with the problem of getting it back into NJ, if that is your intent.  If it's a one-way trip for the air pistol and if you aren't too far from PA, I'd consider driving across the border and mailing the gun, especially if you can use a non-NJ address for the return address. It IS legal to ship long guns to yourself...not sure about handguns.  USPS and UPS both allowed it, though again the counter clerk will be convinced you can't do it, and someone is going to have to look up the law for them.   Shipping to yourself, if you are physically present from where it is sent, and then are physically present to receive, is legal because it is NOT a transfer.
    • When I lived in NJ, I flew out of Philly many times with a rifle/handgun. No issues at all.    Follow the advice on the airline website. You’ll need a hard sided, lockable case. Do NOT use TSA locks.    You will be required to open your case and display the weapon is clear.  You will fill out a form, which will be locked inside the case.  TSA may or may not desire to inspect the case and/or the bag the case is inside. That’s up to them. 
    • I have to fly out of Newark to Denver on United later in the month with a Handgun.  Hard to get solid advice and impossible to get through to United customer service.  It is actually an air pistol.  I was advised to fly out of Philly, it is a non issue there, but I had to book out of Newark.  I was told to ask someone who has done it before and value their advise.  I figured this would be the best place to start.  Thanks for any help. John
