I am interested in adding on a +2 mag extension onto my new mossberg 590 and i've heard great thing about Max100 from GunConnection in SC that makes them for it but i have been unable to get a hold of him. Is he still around and also what about going with the Choate extension?

Still nothing from him. Only got the usual response of his email and i have tried emailing again but to no avail. I see that he logged on the other day too. He must be really busy or not doing them anymore.

multiple emails to Max100 and still no response. I dont mind the wait but at least a response would be nice. I have the money sitting here waiting to be sent. Whats the other option? The Choate +2? anyone have it? Any pics?

Sent my Money order on 4-14-10 for a +3 for my 870p. I don't mind waiting, but would like to know if my money order was recieved. If you see this MAX 100, I do not want a refund and will wait for my item.

If you are talking about the full sized 8-shot 590, why would you be adding an extension to it? I personally am not a fan of the mag tube extending beyond the barrel.
Also, if a person or company is THAT hard to get in touch with, I would not bother giving them my business.

This is for the 18.5" 590 which adds 2 to bring it up to 7+1.

Any mag extension that will fit on an 870 will work on a 590 IF you cut down the mag tube. There is an un-threaded section on the mag tube end just before the start of the threads that will not allow the extension to tighten down far enough to hold the barrel in place.

For any of you thinking of doing business with Craig, I'd like to share my personal experience. I placed an order in March of this year after being told that it would take 2 weeks. He requires the money up front. I checked with him for status when I hadn't received it in May, and again in June. Both times I was told it would ship that week. Since June he hasn't responded to my emails. I have asked him for my money back, but still no response. I will do no further business with him.

This is a first I ever heard of a magazine tube extension for a Mossberg. Is there really such a thing? The 500 and 590 both have it so you can not add a tube extension. Am I not seeing something? Are there any pics of this being done?

The 18" 590A1, 500 breacher, and 835 can use a magazine tube extension.

I contacted Choate about making custom 590A1 extensions. If I can get 5 orders they will do a special run of +2's to make it 7+1 for 45$. Anyone interested?

mchlhotrod
10-27-2010, 18:24
yeah i would be interested but how would we go about this?

Russ D

I guess I'll Pm all the interested parties when I get 5 interested customers and we can all order on the same day. He said his initial run would be 20. Also he needs exact measurements of length and threads. I won't receive my 590A1 until next week so I cannot get the correct measurements until then. If someone could get the exact measurements with photos it would speed up the process.

Russ,
I contacted you on shotgun world. I am on this sight much more often, let me know when you need the money for these. Also, will they come with springs, or will those need to be ordered sepperate?

They only make a +1 and it's almost twice as much $. BTW my 590A1 is in shipping now and should be here by Monday!

Hello, Count me in for a Choate + 2 extention for $ 45. I amcurious if the Wolf 590 Spring might be the way to go.

I just checked the Choate website and they are offering a 7 shot extension and 9 shot extension for 590 models. They come with spring, baseclamp, and follower. Thanks for leading me in the right direction.

The A1 is different than the standard 590.

Emailing my measurements to Choate as we speak. Does anyone know how to measure threads? I want to make sure I give him the correct thread size for the tube.

Choate now is producing an extension specifically for the 590A1 with 18.5 barrel. Mine is on the way. Has gotten some good reviews over at shotgunworld.

I called them to order at (501) 724-6193. I did not see it on the website (http://www.riflestock.com/index.cfm).

Lastly, here is the link to the shotgunworld post:http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=236582

Somewhat of a long story/post but there are some reviews of the product at the end of the post.

Ordered my Choate +2 today. Part number is 02-04-01 and it is NOT on their website yet. Information on shotgunworld indicates that Choate officially refers to this extension as a +1 because their follower does not allow a seventh round to fit. Users on there reported that they could fit seven rounds if they used the original Mossberg follower.

I intend to use the original follower and load six rounds of buckshot so that I would have the option to load a slug directly in to the magazine tube with an empty chamber.

The A1 is different than the standard 590.

Not really, just the trigger guard and the safety(metal as opposed to polymer), and perhaps a heavy walled barrel.(though the 590 SP has that option listed)

Is there a smaller follower for the 870 express models anywhere ? Wonder if there is, if you could get an extra round in there ??? :dunno:

Hans Vang told me on the phone last week that he's working on a +2 extension for the 590 that should be out around July of this year. He said it should end flush with the end of the 18.5" barrel. I've got my sights on a 590A1 with 18.5" barrel; when I get one, I'll definitely put the Vang extension on it.
