Mossberg Retrograde Series Full
 Comment(s)

The new Mossberg Retrograde Series of pump-action shotguns includes two new models, the 500 Persuader Retrograde and 590A1 Retrograde. Also, the two Mossberg Retrograde Series guns commemorate the company’s 100th anniversary in 2019.

Firstly, Mossberg highlights features from two of the most iconic police and military pump-action shotguns in history. As a result, bringing back the look and feel of the walnut stock and matching corncob fore-end creates a unique shotgun line.

Mossberg, after more than 50 years of production, has built more than 12 million shotguns on the 500 platform, an extraordinary number. Moreover, the only pump-action shotgun to pass the U.S. military’s Mil-Spec tests, the 500 has proven tough and reliable.

Mossberg Retrograde Series Features

Both the 500 Persuader Retrograde and 590A1 Retrograde feature Mossberg’s combination of non-binding twin action bars, dual extractors, positive steel-to-steel lock-up and anti-jam elevator. Also, the anodized aluminum receivers and ambidextrous top-mounted safety should be familiar to Mossberg fans.

The 500 Persuader Retrograde utilizes an 18.5-inch barrel, cylinder bore and is topped with a dingle front brass bead sight. Also, the 590A1 is built to Mil-Spec standards, has a nine-round magazine capacity, 20-inch heavy-walled barrel, heat shield, bayonet lug and ghost ring sights.

Above all, each model stands out with the timeless wood furniture and corncob fore-end. The 500 Persuader Retrograde retails for $504, while the 590A1 Retrograde comes in at $902.
