Do you think anyone would be interisted in an adapter for a Mossberg 500 that lets you feed aguila mini shells (1.5") then with the flip of a switch feed 2.75" shells?
Would it be a big deal if you had to use a tool to remove it?
(It will have to be removed to load 3" shells into the mag tube.)
Would it be a big deal if it were made of plastic or would aluminum sell better?
Keep in mind that aluminum costs more than plastic and tooless removel would make it more complacated making it more expinsive.
Two holes will need to be drilled into the receiver for installation.
How much do you think people would pay for such an adapter?

Hard to say what people would pay. I really liked my mossberg 500A. It was sweet! The tooless removal would still be a good option for people that would be willing to pay more for that.
Aluminum may sell better due to the fact it is a little tougher. Just my humble opinion. Hard to say though, plastics these days are pretty durable and i like stocks that are plastic, they seem to be better at taking the beating then wood.
Flip of a switch? that sounds interesting. I would guess between $20.00 and $50.00?

If it were aluminum or steel, came with the tool, and worked well I would be interested in something like that. I like my mossberg, but its not a million dollar gun. A couple holes drilled to allow the use of a handy mod like that wouldn't bother me much.
50 bucks sounds reasonable to me considering the nature of the device.

If someone's got to go to the point of permanently modifying their shotgun, the part had better be metal. It'll be a fairly small market. There's no way you could run a bracket over the top of the receiver to locate the improved follower?
