    Mossberg 500 Shotgun repair....HELP !

    Hi guys, wasnt sure where to put this....my shottie was dropped getting out of a boat at the weekend, trigger guard broke off...

    took it apart, and the housing on each side of the pin that the trigger pivots on are deformed/broke (plastic) the pin was sheared (1/8th" dia replaced)

    Rang 5 gun shops in Jaffaville, no one has a replacment, to order one is between $4-5 hundy

    does anybody know 'someone' who repairs shotguns who might have a 2nd hand one for sale????? pics below showing damage....'rangi' epoxy resin repair job ??????



    pin housing.....



    other side....

    While I might not be as good as I once was, Im as good once as I ever was!

    Mmmm may not be a vg suggestion but wot about a panel beater ie plastic welding? They're able to do some pretty clever repairs now.

    they've got to be kidding on the price. This is the metal upgraded trigger group... Under 100 USD, so no issues with having it sent

    Good luck on them as they wouldn't send some little springs over to NZ.

    Just to add a bit of salt to your possibly wounded emotions, the trigger group broke on my 590, not through it being dropped, but the known weakness of the plastic (they usually break at the two lugs at the front where they locate into the receiver), I sent an email off to Mossberg with pics showing what happened, and they sent a replacement metal version. No permit or anything required, was 2 or 3 years ago.
