Does anyone make a wood stock set that will fit the Mossberg 590A1? I suspect the buttstock would be interchangeable with any 500 series, but foregrip might be a problem.

I made one. The Buttstock is standard, but the foregrip needs to be shortened about 2-1/2 inches, reshaped and stained.

I've never seen a 590 with wood, but my friend has a 500 Persuader (20" barrel, 8 shot) with wood stocks and it looks great. The stocks from one of those should work just fine, they're identical in size to the stocks on my 590's

Call Vic Havlin at havlinsales.com

They may have something or may know if the old style 500 stocks will fit.

The old style is the longer one while the new style is the shorter but on the exterior the newer is longer:rolleyes: Why did they make a finger pinching forestock that goes over the reciever when action is open???

Mossberg 500 buttstock and forend. I had to modify the inlet on the forend for it to fit my 590A1.

Creature,

That's exactly what I'm talking about. I'll keep my eye out for a set of wood 500 furniture.

If you want to go with that forend you will need to go and get yourself a 1-3/8" bit. You will need it to drill out the inlet a bit deeper to get enough clearance to fit. Dont worry...its an easy job. You'll see what I mean when you find the forend and try to to fit it to your 590A1.

However, if you go with the newer forend, which is square, you wont need to get the drill bit. This forend fits without any modification:http://i43.servimg.com/u/f43/12/63/91/01/img_1110.jpg

But beware, the newer forend is slightly longer and "reaches back" past the receiver when you cycle the action as can be seen here:

Personally, I prefer the older round forend.

Hmm. I'm trying to figure out what kind of problems that could cause. Unless your hands are where they really shouldn't be I don't see the problem with the square forearm other than the aesthetics you may prefer.

If you used a side saddle on the shotgun with extended forearm, the fore arm would hit the side saddle.

Thats a nice looking 590.

Why so it would. I hadn't considered that. It's not really an issue for me, but that's something to keep in mind.

The longer square forestock has plenty of excess to remove on a belt sander so it won't encroach upon the reciever. Havlin sales has the wood set for under 50 bucks... Can't beat that price... Just measure the length of your tube.
Would this look okay on there?

The longer forend doesnt cause problems or interfere with reloading...its just longer.
