OR3GUN Enhanced Competition Follower for Mossberg® 930/935/500/590
The OR3GUN Enhanced Competition Follower (ECF-930) for Mossberg 930/935/500/590 series shotguns
is an upgrade to visibility and proper feeding in any Mossberg 12-Gauge Shotgun with or without an extended magazine tube.
(w/ Teflon® Finish)
(Less Finish Wear)
(Easy to Show Clear)
While it would seem that the last thing the world needs is another 12-Gauge Follower, years of competitive
shooting prompted us to design one anyway for a number of reasons. As the OR3GUN Project was born out of 3-Gun,
our products are designed around the needs specific to the sport.
Primarily, our experience inspired us to create a follower that is easier to quickly distinguish as 'clear'.
Wait just a second, isn't orange or red a pretty good color for that?
The list of things to go wrong in hasty quad loading and/or shotgun dump have left many a shooter with a DQ when discovered
their shotgun wasn't empty after all. Here's how the industry's chosen standards for shot shell and follower colors/profiles
The majority of bulk pack and other common shot shell types seen in 3-gun can be quickly mistaken for standard
followers in both color and design. When an RO that may not be used to what a shooter is running checks a grounded
shotgun in a dump box, we like to give them every possible reason to take a closer look. Unless you run rarely
encountered blue shot shells, the OR3GUN Enhanced Competition Follower is a better contrast for 'clear'.
What are the odds of loading a shell backwards, really? We used to think it was just the
local newbie that did things like that, until we saw a popular sponsored shooter on Facebook
with their gear all loaded up like this for a stage:
The image quickly disappeared from their sponsor's feed after becoming Facebook Fodder for the day, but it was a lesson that
we ALL make mistakes, no matter how many logos are on our shirts.
We didn't simply create a different colored follower and call it a day.
You will find that ours is long enough for proper
transition over minor imperfections in magazine tube extensions, but short enough to avoid consuming valuable shell
capacity in most applications. The inside is sized to accommodate the largest variety of OEM and
aftermarket springs. We have also polished and anodized our 6061 T6 alloy follower for reduced friction.
Bolt closed/empty tube reloads and starts are where you will really start to see the benefits of our design. Rather than
using the traditional machining process of a simple chamfer on relevant edges, we have taken a more rounded approach.
The lack of hard edges helps the anodized finish wear longer and our radius approach is a better way to keep from
hanging the crimped end of your shot shell up on any portion of the follower. The rounded edges also glide smoothly over
minor seams and transitions in your magazine tube or extension.
Since we're from Oregon, we also made sure that our Drain (the name of an actual town near us) is amply large
as well. We have designed the end to peek out just a bit more than most followers to
satisfy your favorite RO and allow you to feel the difference. This profile also makes it perfectly suited for
Mossberg's 500 & 590 series guns. The vent/drain hole is an advantage over the OEM follower in these guns as it
doesn't trap moisture in the otherwised closed magazine of pump models. Allowing the
magazine to breathe helps prevent the magazine tube and follower corrosion issues common in certain climates.
Other than ALL of that, it IS just another follower. Unless that now makes it a LEADER...
As we know that followers can be one of the more finicky items in the tuning of a specific gun, (especially in light
of the trend toward radical loading port and lifter modifications,) we didn't want
ours to break the bank for those wanting to give it a try. The Enhanced Competition Follower is now shipping
with a price under $20.
