Zombies beware, Mossberg releases new shotgun

Mossberg has released a new shotgun into production.

Specifically designed for defeating zombies, I imagine it is equally useful on druggies and other assorted scumbags.

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.

    Funny, I was just thinking yesterday my safe could do with a pump action shotgun. Lots of novalty feature here but 31 inches it’s not too short to give any problems under our laws & would sure be fun on the rabbits infesting the garden.

    Useful on Lascivious Lecherous Louche Mayors

    I find it more than ironic that in the first, modern ‘classical’ rendition of the undead that took hold in our collective psyche that the danger wasn’t the zombies, but other humans.

    Not sure if I like that handle.
    I have a semi 22 Mossberg for 48 years simple and still shoots like a dream.

    God that will set the anti gun nuts into raptures, some serious hating in this model for them. Perhaps the New Zealand model should be called the Len Brown special, one quick pull and the shots away.

      More shoots away than a 2 minute Lenny Noddle

      Didn’t the military put condoms on the end when on patrol in the asian jungle ?

  • rockape

    I suspect you couldnt hit the side of a house with that, the ergonomics are all wrong!
