North Haven, CT -(AmmoLand.com)- O.F. Mossberg and Sons, Inc. is pleased to offer new sub-compact 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 NFA transfer paperwork. Two 12-gauge, 3-inch sub-compact versions are available with all of the standard features of the 590A1/500 platform that millions worldwide have selected for personal defense and in service to our country.

The Compact Cruisers are built on Mossberg’s legendary 500 action, which passed the rigorous testing required to meet or exceed U.S. Armed Services MilSpec 3443 requirements; the only shotgun manufacturer to pass these endurance, accuracy and quality tests. The 590A1/500 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 Cruiser AOWs 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. The T3’s non-slip textured finish provides for a positive grip. 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.

The 500 Compact Cruiser AOW (51697) features a 7.5-inch cylinder bore barrel with front bead sight; 2+1 capacity; durable anodized finish on receiver; and Parkerized finish on barrel and mag tube. MSRP: $910 – $980.

    I was on Grand Jury duty in Phoenix about 25 years ago, we had a case where some druggies were fooling around with a 9 inch sawed off 12ga, it went off and hit one of them about 6ft away. peppered their leg but not seriously injured.

    I will pass on this expensive item and would use an AR pistol with subsonic rounds in a 30 round mag.

    I can get a Mossberg Cruiser 8 shot pistol handled 12 gage with a 20″ barrel for $351.49 and I’m expected to over 3 times as much for less gun. What’s wrong with this picture?

    This is a copy of Wilson Arms Company’s “Executive Protection” shotgun, built in the late ’80s. The “Executive Protection” Shotgun was made famous in the television show “Miami Vice”.

    So why isn’t Mossberg actively marketing a 14 inch barrel non-NFA 12 gauge firearm?

    I have a Mossberg 500 Serbu 9 inch Super Shorty AND a $3000 AR. The Shorty looks better, but I’ll tell you now if you don’t want a very sore hand, mock me if you want but shoot it a lot 1st and then tell me, Buy a lot of Remington Managed Recoil slugs and buckshot. It is 100 ft lbs more powerful and 100 ft per sec. faster and 45% less felt recoil and you can shoot it all day.

    John is 100% correct ! Half the gun at twice the cost…. WHY ? Less metal (barrel, mag tube/spring), only a pistol grip and a folding fore grip. even uses less packaging… It SHOULD be in the $400.00 range ***MAXIMUM***. I love Mossbergs but this is completely ridiculous pricing aimed to compete and price gouge like the Serbu. Set the price where it SHOULD be at $400.00 and pull the rug out from under the $1050.00 WAY overpriced Serbu !

    rush out to pay $900 for a sawed off shotgun? This makes about as much sense as $3000 AR’s
