The legendary Mossberg 590 has just received an all-new lineup that is now compatible with a wide variety of shotgun shells from 3″ magnums all the way down to the tiny 1.75″ mini shells. The new Mossberg 590s shotgun features a redesigned elevator and bolt slide as well as an energy-absorbing bumper for maximum flexibility with any 12-gauge shotgun shell right out of the box.

New Mossberg 590s Mini-Shell Compatible Pump Action Shotguns
The new Mossberg 590s will come in four different configurations including a 20-inch, 18.5-inch, 14-inch Shockwave, and 18.5-inch Shockwave. Each of the new shotguns will feature the redesigned components that allow the 590s to reliably cycle the increasingly popular mini shells. The standard 20-inch barrel will be able to pack a whopping 13+1 mini shells and will also come standard with ghost ring sights. The two 18.5-inch variants (both the shockwave and standard shotgun) will be able to load up to 9 mini shells in the tube while the 14-inch version can pack 8 total mini shells – all three of these variants will come standard with a front bead sight.
The shotguns will also be able to cycle seamlessly with a mixed loading of 1.75″, 2.75″ and 3″ shells without issue and all of the new shotguns will come with the best standard 590 pump-action features you’ve come to love including a positive steel-to-steel lockup, dual extractors, twin action bars, and an anti-jam elevator for smoother operation. This adaptation of the Mossberg 590 eliminates the need to purchase an aftermarket adapter for use with mini shells. Instead, Mossberg has baked this compatibility right into the 590s with the introduction of an extended and revised elevator and shell guide. The Mossberg 590S will be sold for an MSRP of $605 with the only exception being the 20″ shotgun version which is listed at an MSRP of $708.
