Put 40 shells through the gun last Friday. 25 of #8 birdshot and 15 of 00buck. WOW. So much fun! Can't wait to go back tomorrow and shoot some more.

I'm 5'9" and have average length arms. Its not a stretch to shoot it with the standard stock, but my arm is pretty far outstretched. When my funds recover I am strongly considering the Hogue stock. Gonna shoot it a bunch more before I make that final decision, though.

Also got in a box of Winchester Ranger low-recoil 00buck that I wanna try out. I can handle the full-power 00buck fine, but it was only like $33 + shipping from so I figured I"d give it a try to see how it compares to the full-power Winchester

My favorite shotgun that I've owned was my M500 that is like the OP's, except the stocks were wood, since it was purchased in 1987. I'd say that your gun is perfect for HD as it is. If anything, add a more visible front sight, and perhaps an ammo carrier.

I recently put a 18.5 in barrel with bead sight on my 500 & I like it better than my 590A1. It is shorter and lighter. Great 00 buck patterns at 25 yds, bigger spread but still lethal at 50 and accurate with slugs out to 100 yards.
