First Look: Mossberg Magpul Series Shotguns

First Look: Mossberg Magpul Series Shotguns

mossberg_magpul_shotgunThough the Mossberg 500 series shotgun is anything but new, the company has given the tried-and-true workhorse a serious upgrade by adding Magpul furniture. The new Magpul Series includes the Mossberg 500, 590 and 590A1 models.

Mossberg's Magpul Series shotguns feature an SGA stock and MOE forend. The SGA stock has a built-in spacer system for length of pull adjustment and is fully ambidextrous. The spacers can be removed or added with the turn of a flat-head screw, allowing you to adjust LOP for different size shooters.

The SGA stock also comes with a recoil-reducing butt pad and interchangeable cheek risers. The Magpul SGA High Cheek Riser Kit is particularly useful when utilizing an elevated optic or raised sights, while the butt pad makes long days of training with a 12-gauge shotgun, and particularly slugs, much more bearable.

The MOE forend features extended length front and rear hand stops for improved control and is fully compatible with MOE rails, mounts and accessories.

All models come in a durable Parkerized finish, while select models offer 6-, 8- and 9-shot capacities; standoff/breacher or fluted barrels; bead, ghost ring or XS ghost ring sights; and optional receiver/barrel sling plates.

Gunsite Tested

G&A staff recently traveled to the Gunsite Academy in Paulden, Arizona, to test drive the new Mossberg 590A1 Magpul edition shotgun. With the expert guidance of rangemaster Chris Weare and instructor Dave Hartman, we ran the 590A1 through a two-day tactical shotgun training course complete with loading drills, several interactive courses and a shoot house.

Not only was the Magpul Series 590A1 a workhorse in the summer heat, it even made a few converts out of a couple of shotgun-averse gun writers.
