If you cruise internet shotgun forums, you’ll see that “retro” shotgun builds are popular. Some of these builds are more involved than others but typically retro just means that the shotgun has wood, military/police style stocks. Apparently, Mossberg is aware of this trend too because their new Retrograde line fits the bill.
There are two shotguns in the line. The 500 Retrograde features an 18.5″ cylinder bore barrel with a brass bead sight. It offers 6+1 capacity and comes equipped with walnut stocks.
The 590A1 Retrograde features a 20″ cylinder bore barrel with ghost ring sights and a heat shield. It boasts 8+1 capacity and, of course, walnut stocks.
