Thanks, he never responded to some emails I sent him. I couldn't find the new handle on the mossberg website, I'll have to call them.
I called to order and they said their 2010 stuff won't be available until the end of March. I think I'll pick one up and see how it goes.I'm undecided between the NOB and what Mossberg is coming out with.
That knurled finish sure looks like it would keep my fingers from slipping off by accident. With any luck the SPX heatshield will be out at the same time.
