MOSSBERG 500 CHAINSAW ZMB EDITION

I WILL STICK WITH THE BASIC 500 WITH MY STOCK Dom
Love them or hate them, there’s no denying that in recent years “Zombie” products have made their mark within the shooting industry. We haven’t addressed any zombie-centric products yet on the Gun of the Week series, but we figured that now—with Halloween just a few days away—is as good a time as any. Enter the ZMB edition of the Mossberg 500 Chainsaw.
Mossberg debuted the design at SHOT Show just a few years ago, and who could blame them for climbing on to the Zombie bandwagon? By all accounts, it’s a natural progression. Built on the iconic Mossberg 500 action—a traditional choice for a “go to” home-defense shotgun—the Chainsaw is a pistol-grip pump-action shotgun with no stock. The wrap-around chainsaw-style handgrip was added to the forend to make it easier to control. The gun is meant to be fired from the hip, and the top handle allows the operator to cycle the action while simultaneously maintaining leverage above the gun to help tame muzzle flip.
Learn more about the 500 Chainsaw with the video below, hosted by Shooting Illustrated's Ed Friedman.

A Shockwave Raptor birds head grip on a standard 500 or Maverick 88 makes a whole lot more sense. Can shoot from the hip or from eye level, all with very little discomfort.

More than $600 for the zombie chainsaw 500? That's 590A1 territory.

My Maverick with Raptor setup was less than half that, and I'm not stuck with only firing from the hip.

If all you want is to look at it and say "that's kewl" then fine, but I'll say no thanks.

Didn't like the chainsaw idea before, like it even less now.

Me too. But add a real chainsaw and I would be willing to give it a second look.

I concur.

You guys laugh now, but when the zombie tree invasion begins, those who planned ahead with this mod will be chuckling over your petrified corpses.

I'm holding out for a shotgun/compound miter saw combo in case there's a zombie wood-trim attack.
tolerance for failure meter... LOW

pointless niche market! and for 600 you could get a 590a1 or even a 930spx.
