Now Mossberg delivers its legendary pump-action reliability in these convenient sub-compact firearms. O.F. Mossberg and Sons, Inc. is pleased to offer new NFA firearms, based on its time-proven 12-gauge 590A1 and 500 pump-actions. Classified by the BATFE (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) as AOWs (Any Other Weapon), the 590A1/500 Compact Cruiser AOWs require a $5 tax stamp for transfer, as well as the required firearms transfer paperwork.
The Compact Cruisers AOWs are designed for smooth, reliable operation and feature non-binding twin action bars; positive steel-to-steel lock-up; an anti-jam elevator; and dual extractors. Their lightweight, anodized aluminum receivers provide for added durability and for ease of operation, by right or left-handed shooters, the Compact Cruisers have Mossberg’s universally-recognized, ambidextrous top-mounted safety.
Both the 590A1 and 500 feature the ATI T3 pistol grip, constructed of reinforced polymer and designed to absorb recoil energy before reaching the shooter’s hand. Less felt recoil reduces shooter discomfort and the time required to get back on target. Adding to the shooter’s comfort and ease of cycling, the Compact Cruiser AOWs have contoured polymer foregrips with a durable, webbed strap. The foregrip can be folded down, assisting in recoil reduction, or folded up against the magazine tube. Both the stock and foregrip feature a non-reflective black finish.
