I have a 20 gauge 500,I have noticed the various foreends for the 12 ga are plentiful but there is not much choice in the 20....has anyone here had success fitting a 12 ga part to a 20 ga shotgun?.I realise they will be a different size but as I am a machinist and have access to a lathe and mill etc I can easily make an adapter if that is feasible,just wanting to know if others have tried this route......

I installed a Maverick 88 12 gauge synthetic forend with pinned action bars on a 20 gauge Model 500, and it works just fine. Mossberg uses the same size receiver for their 12 and 20 gauge 500 series shotguns. The fit is a bit loose on the magazine tube, but it functions well. Of course this is replacing the whole assembly, tube and all. Fitting a 12 gauge forend to a 20 gauge forend tube would require sleeving.

This place has lots of Mossberg stocks for the 500C.
I've bought several synthetic 20 gauge stock and forend sets from them. As for your question it would seem that you could fabricate a cylindrical shim that you could insert into a 12 gauge forend to make it fit on a 20 gauge action slide.
