Corncob style is Winchester, afaik... my Mossy 500 I bought new in '86 was "normal" style.

I have a replacement stock set on it now (speedfeed on back, black plastic on front) and that is corncob style... but I got it sooo long ago I don't recall who made it.

You have to watch the Mossbergs, vintage makes a difference. The older ones use a different action bar setup than the newer ones. I just went through this with a 590, I replaced the "practical tactical" with wood. I may have something that would work for you. Give me a bit...

This is one of the two 590's I converted to wood. Yes, the action bars are longer on the 590.



I have a wood forend on a 500 action bar and an unfinished 500 stock set left over (I can take pics) if you are interested.
