590 a1

Finally had a chance to run about 40 rounds of Winchester 1oz slugs thru it. All I can say is WOW! I had no idea this thing was a beast. Have to say I am in awe of it's power. I got the 18 1/2 inch barrel with ghost sights on it. Is there anything I should keep an eye out for? I already checked the barrel for rust and it's ok.

I bought the 18.5 inch basic model with bead sight a fewmonths back. I was surprised howaccurate it was out to 50 yards with slugs. On a standard silhouette I was able to keep 5 slugs inside of the 10ring! The mil spec finish is a littlerough but the more I shoot it the smoother it gets.
Cheers,

There's really nothing to keep an eye out for when it comes to such a tested pump action shotgun. Shoot & enjoy.

I sorta figured that. It was either this or a Ruger SR 1911. Very happy with the choice I made. Now I just have to shoot the snot out of it.

It's got a bayonet lug, so you're going to need to find a bayo for it! I think the M9 works on it, but best to research it.

That thing is one lethal looking security blanket to be sure.

Get a bayo and a mount to hold some extra shells on it.

Mine is the 18 1/2 inch version so no bayonet lug. Not a deal breaker for me though.

Just picked up 18.5, bead sight. Shot it a bunch today and will know it tomorrow. No regrets.

The more you shoot them the slicker they get.

When I took it out to shoot I went with friend who has a Mossberg 930. I let him shoot mine and he said the 590 kicked harder than his 930. We were both using 1oz slugs. Wonder why that is.

The semi auto action uses some of the energy that creates/causes felt recoil.

Please be safe

I added a +2 mag extension and the hook-and-loop side saddle from www.sjhardware.com. Couldn't be happier. There are clips of the mag extension on YT if you want to check it out. It's rock solid. Enjoy! Cheers, Krome.

Love that +2 extension. On my radar. One question though. With the +2 extension, does it change removal of the barrel because the end cap is now replaced?

The extension basically becomes the endcap. So you unscrew the extension just like you would an endcap and it serves the exact same function.

Just what Big Bird said, it becomes the end cap. Also, the new follower is high-vis which I like a lot. Cheers, Krome.

Sold. So with the speedfeed stock and +2 extension we are looking at 11 rounds of trouble

Love my 590A1. Although, I've made a few modifications- previous owner had installed an aluminum follower. I added a Mossberg heat shield, Mesa Tactical LEO adapter, Magpul CTR stock with enhanced buttpad, and Magpul MOE- K pistol grip.

I've read that if you have ghost ring sights on it's a pain to get a heat sheild on. I'm curious for those that have one on how you went about installing it without scratching the barrel?

heat shield

It us my understanding that you can't put a heat shield on a ghost ring gun. So I am very interested if it is possible.
Looking forward to learn about this.

Happy Easter joyous Passover

Please be safe

This shot gun is my bedside gun, along with a hand gun.

8 shots in the tune, 6 on a side saddle, 4 in the stock, 15 in a sling makes for a long day for anyone coming in this home.

With ar-15 being so common and as cheap (s&w M&p sport for one ), I am surprised anyone is still buying it or using a shot gun these days.

Wouldn't have it any other way. Proven defender.
