Longer forend

Does anybody make a longer forend that will fit the Mossberg 590A1? Trying to make it a little easier for my wife to shoot it. Thanks

I want to apologize in that I do not own one but if you put a longer forearm on would you have enough clearance on the back to fully eject the shell?

Olddrum, my friend, couldn't it be shaped somewhat like the one on this Model-12 trap gun? The forearm is relieved to clear the ejection port and provides a longer grip area that the classic corn cob. For shotguns with synthetic stocks, perhaps an extended shell could be fitted over the factory forearm.

Z-13, you are right as always. It could be that way and work perfectly.

I was perusing Brownell's site today and I may have ran across what you want: Check out the Mossberg Sport Forearm made by the Speedfeed folks.
