Known for its artisan firearm furniture, WOOX unveiled a new product line of Italian-made wooden parts. They showed off furniture upgrades for Mossberg 500 / 590 / 590A1 / Shockwave pump shotguns.

While these are performance enhancements for the firearms they are mounted to, they also provide a timeless and elegant look. Made from American Walnut, this Italian-American combo is sure to make an impression.

After stopping at the WOOX booth at SHOT Show, I was first introduced to the GLADIATORE lineup of shotgun furniture.

WOOX is crafting these parts for the Mossberg 500 / 590 / 590A1 / Shockwave pump shotguns. They can be purchased as individual components or as a kit to include the stock and forend.

These are all simple to install, and feel great in terms of egronomics. The GLADIATORE lineup includes a stock, forend, and club grip.

GLADIATORE Lineup

The GLADIATORE stock is made from premium American walnut and looks stunning.

It includes a QD sling swivel, a thick rubber butt to help absorb recoil, and great texturing around the grip. The stock mounts flush with the shotgun.

WOOX offers a club stock option for the Mossberg shockwave.

While being advertised as great for CQB, this nub option gives an elegant look to what feels like a pirate gun. This grip is plenty wide to provide a solid hold and includes texturing to help keep it from slipping around in wet conditions.

The new forend blends classic wooden furniture with modern capabilities by utilizing aluminum M-LOK rail sections into the design.

These are included on both sides and on the bottom of the forend which allows one to mount weapon lights or other accessories. I also like how the front and back of the forend are flared out to help always keep the user’s grip in the right place.

Overall, I am quite impressed with the WOOX lineup of firearm upgrades. They look great, feel great, and function as they should.

WOOX said that these GLADIATORE parts are available now. You can currently find the stock for $249, the grip for $119, and the forend for $129. If you want to learn more about the WOOX GLADIATORE lineup, click HERE

    So are they paying Magpul for stealing their design?

    That walnut stock is really nice as is the forend and the price is reasonable. However, I don’t care for the WOOX logo on the parts – it kind of ruins the look.
