Mossberg 500 Cantilever Mount

I bought a Mossberg 500 12 gauge about a year ago with the cantilever
slug barrel.

I want to add a Mossberg Red Laser Sight but the mount will not go on with
the cantilever slug barrel. Can the mount be removed ? or do I have to drill
and tap the mount?


Are there screws on top of cantilever mount fastening it to barrel. Or a dove tail joint. Or welded/soldered on to barrel. If theres no screws holding it to barrel i would say its probably soldered on permanent. Which means youll be forced to buy another slug barrel without the cantilever mount.


I do not see any screws or dove tail so must be soldered or welded. :frowning:
Ill try tapping to see if it moves.
