Love them or hate them, there’s no denying that in recent years “Zombie” products have made their mark within the shooting industry. We haven’t addressed any zombie-centric products yet on the Gun of the Week series, but we figured that now-with Halloween just a few days away-is as good a time as any. Enter the ZMB edition of the Mossberg 500 Chainsaw.

Mossberg debuted the design at SHOT Show just a few years ago, and who could blame them for climbing on to the Zombie bandwagon? By all accounts, it’s a natural progression. Built on the iconic Mossberg 500 action-a traditional choice for a “go to” home-defense shotgun-the Chainsaw is a pistol-grip pump-action shotgun with no stock. The wrap-around chainsaw-style handgrip was added to the forend to make it easier to control. The gun is meant to be fired from the hip, and the top handle allows the operator to cycle the action while simultaneously maintaining leverage above the gun to help tame muzzle flip.

Learn more about the 500 Chainsaw with the video below, hosted by Shooting Illustrated's Ed Friedman.
