Who makes a good Mossberg 500/590 stock with a shortened length of pull? I know about the Hogue 12" LOP model, and I'm not interested in the pistol-gripped and/or collapsible models. Does anyone make a good synthetic replacement sock with a 13" or 13 1/2" LOP.

Have you considered getting the hogue and putting a thicker buttpad on it?

I'd consider that, but the Hogue already has a pretty beefy recoil pad that I'd say is about an inch thick. Where would one get a recoil pad that's 2 inches thick and fits the Hogue stock?

Does it have to be synthetic? You can cut a wood one down however much you like... paint it black...

I sometimes throw a small sized Limbsaver slip-on onto my 12" Hogue, this totally smothers the felt recoil for me and adds another inch of LOP. The slip-on fits like its custom made for the application, it pops on and off easily when you want it to but stays firmly put otherwise.

I've heard that Aimpro Tactical is planning or may already have 13" LOP Hogues specially made for them.

Would one of the Mossberg youth stocks fit a 500 ?

I will dig up an email on Wed afternoon that should provide a possible option. I'm struggling as well. I even called Mossberg to ask if they would customize one of theirs and chop it down. No go but they gave me a name I need to follow up on. Someone I know found a company that sells a non-pistol grip that has adjustable lop and includes adjust cheek piece and has a recoild reduction spring in it. Will pass that along on Wed.

Speedfeed makes a 13-ish LOP for the 500/590

Yes, the Mossberg youth stocks will fit the 500 and 590 shotguns. The wife and youngest daughter have them on both their 12 and 20 Ga. guns. Unless you are passing a shotgun around and adjustable stock is a waste of money.

Go to Mossbergs Accessories page and see what they have available.

Speedfeed is probably your best bet. It is a bit long for me though so I use the hogue.

FWIW, I e-mailed Aimpro Tactical and asked if they had had a batch of 13" LOP Hogue stocks made for Mossbergs. I got a reply saying that they do, in fact, have these stock sets, and they're just a few pennies under $60. So, if you're interested...
