OR3GUN Cast/Drop Adapter for Mossberg® 930/935
The OR3GUN Cast/Drop Adapter (CDA-93X) for Mossberg 930/935 series shotguns
is designed to properly bias factory polymer stock fitment for left/right handed shooters. The CDA also allows for an
additional rise/drop in the stock with modified use of the factory receiver shims included with your 930/935.
Our companion Recoil Pad Spacer
(RPS-93X) allows for a
longer Length of Pull than the factory stock, improves balance of the gun and allows simple installation
of additional weight.

Having YOUR shotgun fit YOUR body is critical to maintaining proper sight picture and repeatability in quickly mounting
the gun. Adjusting your position and craning your head on the clock doesn't help your order in the prize table line.
Mossberg 930/935 Series shotguns with factory polymer stocks include a set of receiver shims and stock plates that allow
for up to .375" of Rise adjustment and .250" of Drop adjustment. While this is a good start for many to fit the gun to
their body, it often isn't quite enough and ignores critical cast adjustment.
After analyzing the space left on the table (or inside the stock) for additional adjustment, we
designed a system to take full advantage of every last bit we could find without requiring
modification to the factory stock. As the CDA can be slid up or down inside the polymer stock, the full amount of rise/drop
will depend on the tolerances of your gun's polymer stock internals and your tolerance for making minor internal
modifications to your polymer stock.
Primarily, the CDA allows easy adjustment of the factory polymer stock for CAST, which is the often overlooked
left/right placement of the stock in relation to the centerline of the barrel. The Mossberg 930/935 has a fairly neutral
stock, which can be improved for fitment of both left and right-handed shooters (with our CDA) by installing the core
parts (Adapter & Receiver Shim) oriented in either left or right handed configuration.
When viewed from the rear, lefties should start with the small holes of each part on the left, while righties should
orient them to the right. These components alone create .125" of cast on or off, depending on the installation. Factory
Rise/Drop shims can be combined with either Cast setting of the CDA.
The DROP feature of the CDA allows additional (over factory) Drop/Rise when combined with modified factory stock
shims and retention plates. In most cases, the CDA can increase the amount of drop possible when used with our optional
Alloy Drop Shims or allow stacking of the factory .375" and .125" Rise Shims. If you will be utilizing any
rise or drop with your stock you will need our Short Stock Nut Spacer in order to have adequate threads
for tightening your stock. This is also critical to have if you are using a thick sling adapter between your
receiver and stock, with or without the CDA kit.
Combining factory Rise shims at the stock/receiver joint (such as a .375" & .125") would allow additional rise when the CDA's
adapter plate is slid into position to match and locked in with the included set screws. This is handy for a 930 with an
optic on it and/or tall sights like an SPX. The length of the alignment pin on the back of your receiver and thickness
of your factory shims will also determine the amount of rise or drop that is practical with your gun. Consideration
must also be made for how 'true' the recoil tube is machined into your receiver. Our alloy Drop
Shims are thinner (while still at the correct angle), allowing you to take advantage of the full drop capabilities of
your factory stock and still maintain alignment with the factory pin. Full drop may also require minor modification to the
polymer stock's recoil tube channel.
It is important to note that not all Cast, Drop, Rise and
or sling mounting plate combinations are possible with the amount of 'play' in the factory tolerances.
while stacking the cast shim, an OEM .250" drop and an OEM .125" rise would in theory yield a .125"
drop with cast adjustment, the stack of polymer shims would be too thick to allow the receiver's pin to engage the stock.
This shim stack would also increase the shotgun's Length of Pull.
If you are one of those that would benefit from a longer Length of Pull, our Recoil Pad Spacer (RPS) offers
a number of features. Each of these 6061 alloy spacers adds 0.375" to your LOP and 3.5 oz of weight to better balance
your shotgun. Adding to your Length of Pull is another way to get
additional Drop, as this is a natural effect of doing so.
Up to 3 RPS plates can be stacked and secured with the included bolt and nylon locknut. Alternately, the
bolt and nut can be used to secure a stack of 3/4" fender washers for additional weight. More than one RPS will
require that longer recoil pad screws be sourced from a local hardware store.
The complete process for configuring these components will be detailed soon
over a series of 930/935 fitment videos on our YouTube channel.
The CDA plate, RPS plate and short stock nut spacer are machined entirely from 6061 T6 aluminum. Shims are
either ECO-ABS or 6061 T6, depending on the kit and application.
