Do I need to change the cast on my mossberg or just deal with it, and if I do need to change the cast, how can I do it? When I try to do the mount the gun with my eyes closed thing I have the bead on the right of the receiver/middle bead. I know when I zeroed my rifles I had to move the rear sight pretty far to the side to get my guns to shoot straight, like for every gun I had to do this and other people who shoot my guns say it shoots to the side

    It's a shotgun. You don't need to do anything, it's fine as it is. Just point and shoot

      this is the most moronic take ever. shotguns are point-shot. Ergos matter a great deal. I'd argue that one of the greatest travesty of the modern gun era is that shotguns are one-size-fits-all indented for some dude 5 foot 6 who is neither right nor left handed. It's especially moronic in the days of the internet and advanced manufacturing. There's zero reason why you shouldn't be able to film yourself with your phone, send the video to some company which determines the optimal stock measurements from the video and then 3D prints or CNCs a stock to the right drop, cast, LOP, etc. That is a problem which technology could easily solve.

      The stock can be bent using heat to change the cast.

        90% of people buying an 870 or 500 don't know what the frick that is and just bought a pump gun because it just werks for home defense and maybe blasting clays casually. Now Browning or Beretta so they can make more affordable pieces that don't look like some walnut stock got raped in an alley by all-thread rod and a precision rifle stock? Definitely.

          Yes, that's the problem. The shotgun manufacturers are pushing a shitty one-size-fits all product, when that's fricking moronic. At least some companies like Benelli supply shims with some of their guns so you can change the drop, cast, etc, by fitting them between the receiver and the stock but honestly that should be standard, not limited to expensive guns. Mosserberg and Remington should at least be providing $1 worth of plastic shims if nothing else.

            :^)
            There's a bunch of $2k+ pieces that don't even come with shims now. People just don't know so like you said it's one size fit's all. At least with ARs people learned quick that plastic buffers full of lead shot was incorrect but unfortunately I don't see too many youtube people or even internet forum boomers discussing this so that in the near future it eventually turns into common knowledge. At best some 3d printer gay starts selling ghetto "universal" shim kits at his local clay shooting place and then word spreads slowly.

            Guess which one sells better. Most people don't need anything specialized of tailored to them. One-size-fits all is what the name implies, it fits pretty much fits most. Of course there's always some gay running around punching his own head like it was on fire and thats fine, they can buy whatever they want to make shit fit

              It's not necessarily 60k english fowling piece for queefing about in tweed tier bullshit. It's something that even a JC penny rebranded budget gun would've come with back then. People just forgot and or most shotgun buyers are buying with home defense in mind which can definitely be a "shut the frick up and git gud with it" sorta deal. This is like how modern handguns tend to come with back straps or changing the grips on your da/sa.

              I'd argue they do, they just don't know it because manufacturers have been fricking them over for so long.

              >One-size-fits all is what the name implies, it fits pretty much fits most
              The problem is that it really doesn't. It's a goddanm epiphany for a shooter when they get a shotgun that actually fits them, while that should be standard these days given how simple it is nowadays to include a few shims and spacers with a gun so they can adjust the drop, cast, and LOP to suit them.

                stop b***hing that they dont include them and spend the 5-10 bucks to just buy some shims. since you want them so bad.

                yeah its a shame it doesnt come with them for free but its not like these products dont exist.

              the problem is that it really doesn't, morons just think it does. At the very least they should have given it a cast for right-handed shooters, and I say that as a lefty.

    There's affordable shotguns with shim kits. A 500 isn't one of those but some 930s and I'm assuming the newer 940s will too.

    Are you sure your not cross eye dominant? Anyways shims mossberg used to make one that went between the reciver and stock but stopped. After market ones or you making your own exist. Or just tape stuff to the stock like a cheekpad as a riser.

    The zero shouldn't shift between people, the irons and the bore are all fixed points. Where you put your face doesn't change that.

      shotguns are not aimed like rifles. When you're shooting at a fast-moving bird or a clay you need to be able to lead the shot, not aim directly at it. How the gun points when you bring it up and "mount" it matters a great deal. It should point dead forward, not up down left or right. Of course everybody has a different body shape so not everybody needs the same length or angle of stock. A rifle is different because you can easily move your head to align with the sights or the scope as long as things are reasonably close to correct.

          changing your head position on the stock affects zero. that is why some people have different zeros when they shoot off hand vs prone
