New furniture for the 590a1!

Recently I decided that I wanted to change things up with my mossberg 590a1. I've had it three years now and it has always had the magpul furniture on it. There is nothing wrong with it, I just got tired of the all black tactical look. Decided I wanted to go to a more oldschool look with wood furniture. The only place I could find a set for a decent price was Numrich gun parts online. Great place by the way. For about $50 with shipping I picked out a mossberg 500 (fits the 590 series) stock and forend.

The results are very pleasing:




To continue the classic theme next I want to get a heat shield for it. I know heat shields for the heavy barrel a1 version are somewhat hard to come by, so I'll probably have to end up ordering one directly from mossberg.

Does the stock fit you?

That's the important thing. Nice shotgun!

Yes it actually fits perfect. The magpul stock that was previously on it had an adjustable LOP, and this new stock has almost the same exact LOP as the magpul one did on my preferred setting. In fact, I actually think this wood stock set feels better than the old set.
