Mossberg had some new products to show off at the NRA show this year, including the FLEX system for Mossberg and Maverick shotguns. Easily and quickly swap adjustable stocks, grips, recoil pads, forends, and more. They also showed off a non-NFA shorty shotty and a new line of AR-15s . . .
In the lead photo, the stock is shown extended, while in the photo above it’s collapsed. Now a shotgun can quickly and easily fit the whole family without having to go with an AR-15 stock adapter (which often results in weird cheek rest height, angle, grip situations, etc).
Push out one pin and the stock pops right off of the receiver, ready to be swapped for any number of other options.
Recoil pads also swap quickly and easily by pushing a release button on the bottom, rear of the stock.
Better yet, this extends over to the new AR-15 stocks, which employ the same QD recoil pad system plus a plethora of QD sling sockets.
Stainless steel barrels, suppressor-ready brakes, new handguards, grips, charging handles, and Mossberg’s new drop-in AR-15 trigger round out changes to their new AR platform (depending on model). MMR Pro seen in the first photo.
Next up is the 590 Shockwave, a non-NFA “firearm” with a birds head pistol grip and a 14″ barrel. Perhaps the coolest part is the availability of inserts — I think for the lifter — that ensure smooth cycling of 12 gauge Aguila Minishells.
