I just picked up this beauty today! I'm excited!
Sadly it didn't seem to have the tri-rail despite being a 590a1 tactical which should but whatever, I'm sure I can get one later. I do have the clip for the front sling mount, it's just not on right now.
Don't be a faggot, OP. Do it right. Numrich has the parts you need.
Gotta say you're a huge faggot.
Wood furniture on shotguns is beautiful and curvaceous, yet less durable. Like a woman, which you're clearly not interested in.
Polymer furniture is dark, chunky and hard, like the cocks you enjoy in your ass.
Pistol grips are fine on shotguns with box magazines, like a VEPR or Saiga.
Pistol grips make loading tube magazines a bit more difficult and slow.
>Can you actually use a stock with a pistol grip?
yes just look at every assault rifle known to man
> Everyone says if you have a pistol grip shotgun you have to shoot it from waist level.
thats if its a pistol grip only and to prevent what happens at the 1:05 mark
if you are not a fuckwit and have proper technique/muscle mass you could shoot it sighted without a stock
Wow this is a shitty camera.
Anyway, yaaaay 590 club!
hate on the concept all you want but its really the only good option unless you shell out 70-90 bucks for a mesa tactical
the cheaper plastic sidesaddles cough tacstar/tapco/ati are all shit
velcro isnt permanent if you buy multiple cards its faster to refill
the card is flatter when empty since its fabric and is easily removed
I'll check what saddle I have on mine when I get home. I know it is all metal with polymer shell holders. Holds them very tight. Pic semi related, you can see it up top. It came on the gun when I got it (armslist, 1 tube of 2.75 shot through it from the very old man I got it from.
>ordered an 870 police magnum
>business called me and told me their system fucked up and I'm getting my money back.
I'm really sad but now I'm eyeing up a 590a1. Don't really want the ghost ring sights though. Should I do it or what? I was really looking forward to the 870
ghost rings are only good for a certain type of shooting
that is to say with slugs for accuracy
if you try to use em for clays they just slow you down
if you want x gun buy x gun dont settle for y just cause its there youll just end up buying x gun later on
i would say some shit about remshit being remshit compared to a mossberg but your not looking for an express so it should be ok
Well I heard the express was a shit. I just want a rock solid shotgun. I heard the police magnum was an excellent gun so I (tried) to scoop one up. Especially because it was so sexy like anons post here. >>28706705
I don't know shit about the mossberg 590a1. I don't really want a shotgun for shooting clays, I'll probably get an over under for that some other time. I just want one that would be reliable enough to handle a beating in the woods and for home defense.
>I just want one that would be reliable enough to handle a beating in the woods and for home defense.
either works it really comes down to personal preference in controls
ive got a 500 a 590 and an 870 its really all the same 500s are less annoying to reload
you only think that cause you dont know shit and every pump shotgun with wood furniture looks the same
the 870 wont have the heat shield and bayonet lug
it wont hold the same amount of shells either
go to a store hold both figure out if you like the tang safety or pushbutton
if you plan on extending the mag capacity or putting a pistolgrip go with an 870
mossberg is less pistolgrip friendly
Bought this last Friday. Now it sits on the wall and does nothing.
i didnt say its impossible to put a pistol grip on a mossy just that its not as nice
if youve got a pistol grip on a mossberg the slide release goes from being ergonomically great to meh and you have to change your grip to flip the safety
That seems pointless, but I have zero interest in swapping stocks. Unless I found a wood stock. Otherwise I prefer traditional style stocks.
Is there any downside to getting a 590a1 over an 870?
>Is there any downside to getting a 590a1 over an 870?
if you get the 20 inch barreled 590a1 your pretty much screwed if you want another barrel length
all of em are 20 inches with the only difference being sights
sure other barrel lengths exist (and are really rare) but at that point its almost cheaper to get a new gun
other than that not really
right now your mindset is geared towards a short hd shotgun and 18/20 inch shotguns are great for that but if you start shooting it at more than dirt/stationary targets you find out a longer barrel is a nice thing to have
>Any 590a1 owners recommend any accessories?
Grease the bitch up. Parkerized finish seems to hate oil for some reason.
Also may want to check the barrel for rust since some 590A1s were known to have shipped with (or developed) some light rust towards the bolt end of the barrel.
Of course swap the grip / fore end / stock at will. IMO the stock fore end is hard to hang on to when rolling through buckshot, and considering the kick, you'll want a decent pad on the stock if you plan to shoot it much. Also a fore end with a mount for a rail helps if you ever want to fix a light on it, although it's a heavy as fuck gun as is.
The recoil from 12ga ever-so-slightly engages my safety when I don't have my thumb on it. I tried tightening the screw, no dice. Thoughts?
I read once upon a time that shooting one of these with a side saddle will cause oblonged holes on your receiver where the pins are placed. Not sure if that's true, just figured I'd mention
not unless you want to replace the whole front half of the gun except the slide. the only 500s that take easy only replace the mag cap extensions are the 590s and a lack of barrel lengths makes em pointless unless you want the extension sticking out past the muzzle
I got a winchester SXP black shadow deer recently, not shoted it yet, I have a little concern : there is a little slack of 1mm when the bolt is supposed to be locked in the barrel, it's notr between the grip and the bolt, the forend travels back and forth a mm as the bolt does, is it normal ? It's the same while loaded.
