Mossberg has announced that the new 590 Nightstick model, which brings wood and leather to the Shockwave line, is now shipping.
The latest addition to their series of NFA-compliant not-a-shotgun firearms, the 12 gauge Nightstick is based on the 590 shotgun action but its grip, 26.37-inch overall length and construction allow it to come standard with a 14-inch cylinder bore barrel while not crossing into short-barreled-shotgun territory.
What sets the new model apart is a hardwood corncob-style grip on the pump and a wooden Shockwave pistol grip. Likewise, replacing the nylon hand strap on the forearm that is common to the series, Mossberg has tapped in a leather strap to give it a more old-school vibe.
With a 6-shot magazine tube and a 3-inch chamber, the Nightstick weighs in at 5.25-pounds. MSRP is $539.
