I think this is the first time that I've seen them selling the 590. Is this a good deal?

I think so, I settled for the 500 at Big 5 but had this been available I would have bought it.

There's also a 10% off coupon that is valid for regular or sale priced items.

eh, the 230 dollar 500 combo I boguht also had a 28 inch barrel, that alone worthed more than the price difference in verstility. It came in real handy on my hunting trip last month for birds with birdshot loads. Plus the 18.5 inch barrel is real manuverable.

it's a nice gun though, I would have considered if it were availabe when I was shopping for a shotgun two months ago.

The 500 combo is probably the best deal. But if you want the extra magazine capacity and are ok with the increased weight of the longer mag and barrel then it is an ok deal.

If you are only going to use it for general recreation it is fine. If you ever want to hunt with it you have to modify it to accept only 3 rounds. Also you will call attention to yourself with the longer tube and shroud in the firld.

It's a 8+1 shot, has a barrel shroud AND a bayonet lug!

Plenty of the Tacti-cool for the buck!:cool:

Yipee Kiyay, That Is A Sweet Deal. I Own A M590a1 That I Bought Back In '97 And I Ended Up Paying About $480 For It. I Am Partial To The Mossberg, Carried One In Somalia For Raids. My Work Issues The Remington 870 Which Is A Good Shotgun, But I Like The Mossberg Better. Tang Mounted Safety, Slide Release Behind The Trigger Guard, Very Handy. The Bayonet Lug Is An Added Perk. The Heat Shield Is Nice, I Need To Get One. Sounds Like A Square Deal On A Very Tough Shotgun. I Bet Mesa Tactical Sells All Kinds Of Goodies To Add To It. Good Luck.

Best Regards:d

fyi, this is the 590 on sale, not the 590a1

590A1 (military SG) has heavier barrel, metal safey and metal trigger guard as opposed to plastic

Yeah, I was just looking at the Mossberg website. I didn't realize that they have several different versions of the 590. How much would a 590A1 run and where's a good place to get it?

I would imagine with a few extra bucks in tacticool gear that you could make it an A1. Just wondering if it's worth it. May just get and FN SLP. Not looking for a hunting shotgun.

So if I already have a 500 should I not bother?

Yours is also blued vs. parkerized. The latter is more expensive. 590A1's have a heavier profile barrel and a metal trigger guard which mossberg will only install at the factory.

Ive got model #50668 -- Its got the plastic trigger guard but its damn near indestructible.

I thought all 590's had the heavy barrel b/c of the bayo lug ... and the 590a1 has the aluminum trigger guard and safety in addition to the heavier barrel.

590A1 -- barrrel shroud wont fit over the heavy profile barrel.

Sorry, those are the things you get on the 590A1.

Your other options are the 18.5 or 20" barrel. That being said, people still find other models/options that have receivers that are stamped 590A1.

I know people have been talking about the difference between a 590 and a 590A1, but what are the difference betweenthe 500 and 590. Are the internals much different? In comparing the 500 to my Win 1300 Defender, there are more parts to do a strip and personally I prefer stripping the 1300 rather than the 500...less of a PITA.

World.guns.ru has a little writeup on it, but it seems to just boil down to reinforcement and ruggedizing.

My 'quick stock answer' on the M590A1 is this: while all shotguns can be used as a club once they're empty, the M590A1 is meant to be fired again afterwards. :)

Yes, I know, it's a bit of an exaggeration; other shotguns aren't all that fragile.

AFAIK, excluding the A1 types, the 500/590 series are essentially the same internally and externally. The main difference is the 500s come with 5 or 7 round tubes, while the 590s generally have 8. Barrels are not compatible between the two due to the magazine tubes.

I just bought one of these 590s today using that 10% off coupon 296.99 plus tax and dros... Pretty happy with the price but I was tempted for the 870 express 18 inch that holds 7 for 299.99
But i think the mossberg will do the job fine after I change the forend and stock make it a little more solid. I like the 9 round ability and the 20 inch over 18.

Ya I just had to get one with the 10% off could not help myself. It is a kick ****** gun it feels truly asome. Mine came from the back still sealed from the factory:)
345 OTD. I would rather it be parkerized but blue is classy also. 11 days, who else bought one.

I almost "Just Had To Get One", but after inspecting the blued finish on 2 of them, I got turned off. Instead I bought a "unopened" 7 rd Remington 870 Express Magnum for the tune of $269 after they gave me prev sale price and using my 10% coupon :D

If the Mossberg was parkerized though, I would not have even blinked at purchasing 1 or 2 at that price.

yea i dont like a basic blued finish on the base model....thats what duracoat is for....matte black would look good.

That's no lie. I've got an A1 and if you took the barrel off it would be better impact weapon than the expandable batons I've handled. Its a serrious serrious heavy walled pipe, not a thin wall tube like most SG barrels.
