Mossberg has introduced the Retrograde Series of pump-action shotguns—the 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 fore-end.

In production for more than 50 years with more than 12 million sold, and the only pump-action shotgun to pass the U.S. military’s mil-spec tests, the Mossberg 500 platform has proved 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.

The Mossberg 500 Persuader Retrograde (50429) is available with an 18.5” (6-shot) cylinder bore barrel; topped with single front brass bead sight; blued metal finish; and full-length walnut stock and corncob fore-end. MSRP: $504

The Mossberg 590A1 Retrograde (51665) is built to mil-spec standards (9-shot) 590A1 has a 20” 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 fore-end. MSRP: $902
