Mossberg Introduces Retrograde Series of Pump-Action Shotguns

Mossberg Introduces Retrograde Series of Pump-Action Shotguns
O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc. announces the introduction of the Retrograde Series of pump-action shotguns; the 500 Persuader Retrograde and 590A1 Retrograde. Designed to commemorate Mossberg’s 100th anniversary in 2019, the Retrograde Series features the two most iconic police and military pump-action shotguns, built to today’s standards, but with the retro look and feel of a walnut stock and matching corncob forend.

After over 50 years in production, over 12 million sold and the only pump-action shotgun to pass the U.S. military’s MIL-SPEC tests, the Mossberg 500 platform has proven to be one of the most versatile and reliable shotgun designs available. Both the 500 Persuader Retrograde and 590A1 Retrograde are designed for smooth, dependable operation with the combination of non-binding twin action bars; dual extractors; a positive steel-to-steel lock-up; anti-jam elevator; anodized aluminum receiver for added durability; and universally-recognized, ambidextrous top-mounted safety.

Mossberg 500 Persuader Retrograde (50429) – Available with an 18.5-inch (6-Shot) cylinder bore barrel; topped with single front brass bead sight; blued metal finish; and full-length walnut stock and corncob forend. MSRP: $504

Mossberg 590A1 Retrograde (51665) – Built to MIL-SPEC standards, this 9-Shot 590A1 has a 20-inch heavy-walled, cylinder bore barrel complete with a heat shield, bayonet lug and Ghost Ring sights. This retro model also has a Parkerized finish; metal trigger assembly; metal safety button; and wears a full-length walnut stock and corncob forend. MSRP: $902

As the industry’s leading pump-action shotgun manufacturer, look to Mossberg for a gun to meet your needs at home or in the field. For a complete listing of Mossberg shotguns, visit www.mossberg.com.
