    Yes. You can even buy shotgun pistol grips on Amazon. My gun is so old, they don't sell anything for it. The main thing that is not legal about shotguns is a barrel under 18 inches, which this is not.

    I have not taken it back out to the range yet, but I would guess the recoil will be similar to my buddy's Mossberg 500. I agree, had I wanted another shoulder stock, it would have been about the same amount of work, but I did not want that. To each his own. I do strength training, so am not worried about my wrist. I am saving the old stock, in case I ever want to restore it to original condition.
