Mossberg Door Busters

In Law Enforcement applications, a breaching barrel has a distinct purpose – to break down a door to gain access. Used properly in combination with the appropriate person, protective equipment, and purpose-built breach rounds in a breaching barrel, the Mossberg 500 or Mossberg 930 is a highly effective door buster and an important tool for entry teams.

Though the average shooter will never need a breacher barrel, the barrels remain a perfect partner for your Mossberg 500 or Mossberg 930 where a short 18 ½’ cylinder barrel is warranted.  Perhaps that is why Clint Smith, President and Training Director at Thunder Ranch, chose to include our breaching barrel on the Thunder Ranch 500.

To see the Thunder Ranch Mossberg 500 in action, watch the videos below.
