Just picked up a Mossberg 590A1 that came with a Speedfeed stock installed. Length of pull is a little long for me. Any better options out there (Aside from the magpul)?
Also, how about a pistol grip stock? Yes, I get that the safety isnt located in the proper area for one, but I do much prefer a pistol grip stock.
I picked up some wood from Numrich for my 590A1. Length of pull is much better than the factory polymer for me.
Very nice figuring on that stock.

I went with the Magpul furniture because I couldn’t find anything else with a better LOP.
I went thru this same search a while back. There are a few options for traditional style stocks:
1. The standard factory Mossberg stock is slightly shorter than the Speedfeed but not by too much, around 3/8".
2. The stock that comes on the 18.5" barrel 590A1 Compact is what you probably want. It's about 3/4" shorter LOP. But you have to call Mossberg customer service and order it as it's not listed separately on their website. It's the stock shown here:
Mossberg 590A1 Compact 18.5" Barrel
3. The Hogue 590 Compact Stock is even shorter, closer to a 12" LOP. This is what I went with but I almost think it's too short. I would recommend option #2 above.
Then there's a bunch of different pistol grip/collapsible stock combo options that I didn't really research because I wanted a rifle style stock. Let us know what you end up with.

Could also go with a Youth Stock, I've seen those done for tactical applications to make it easier to use with vests.
Here's one from Midway

Agreed. I have the 20" 590A1 and that sucker can be front heavy. I put on the Magpul stock and it is MUCH more comfortable. It also has adjustability with shims.
Plus, if you like pistol grip stocks, this is as close as you can get without losing access to the safety.
-- Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past me I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. --
I went with the Hogue and added a slip on Limbsaver pad to the butt. It fits perfectly now and the recoil is seriously mitigated.

I went with this wood setup, that is cut down to a short 12.25" LOP. Plus the foreend, actually overlaps the receiver by 1/2 inch so I can hold further back on it comfortably, because I have short sausage arms and a big chest (5'3" and can bench press 275lb easily). I did have to change the slide to the shorter 6 1/2" tube version under the forend.
I️ ended up choosing to go with the Hogue pistol grip stick which has shims for adjustable LOP. Once it gets here I’ll post a photo.
I first bought a Speedfeed reduced LoP stock, but it didn't really fit quite right against the receiver and I was tired of dealing with it.
Bought a Magpul stock and configured the thing to the exact LoP I wanted, no problem.
More money. Fewer headaches.
