I've read a lot of reviews about the 590A1 but I haven't been able to find too much on this specific Rem 870. The 870's street price is a bit lower from what I've found.

What I wanted to ask was to see if anyone has experience with these 2 guns, especially the Rem.

I'm buying the gun for recreation use and also home defense. I would like an adjustable stock so other members of my family can use it as well.

I've read that the shotguns with the recoil reduction stocks don't really work and are worse than normal stocks. Can anyone speak to that?


Any overall comments or thoughts?

It's really up to you. But if you have to have an adjustable stock. I would get the Remington 870 just because the controls of the gun are better suited towards the pistol grip. The Mossberg's top mounted safety is an issue for the pistol grip because it's hard to reach for the safety.

But if the safety placement on the gun doesn't really bother you, I would probably get the 590a1 just because I'm a little more biased towards it (I own one).

Overall, both guns will serve you well in recreational use and home defense. Can't go wrong with either.

I know what you mean, both are great guns. Do you have the adjustable stock on your 590A1? If so, does it reduce recoil or feels the same/worse comparing to conventional stock?

I don't have an adjustable stock on my 590a1 sorry. My 590a1 has the traditional stock with the 13" LOP from Aimpro. But the recoil of my 590a1 with the heavier barrel compared to my friend's regular 590 is quite a difference. Recoil is not an issue for my gun, it doesn't recoil much unless I use full power slugs :D.

But, if you're weight sensitive then it may be an issue (it's front heavy). My female friends often have a hard time of holding and aiming my 590a1.

Shooting a Spec. Ops stock is a bit different then shooting a ridgid stock. Once you get the hang of it, it's great though. You can jam all day long and your shoulder pocket never gets sore.

I have the Rem 870 tac with the knox stock but with ghost rings and extension mag tube. Its great for shooting slugs. magpul also makes SGAs for the 870. Just got a magpul forend the other day. Looks and feels great!

That 590 looks pretty cool too. Looks like the pistol grip can be changed out and it already comes with ghost rings and extension mag.

It will come down to which one you like better. Both pretty darn equal...

The safety on the A1 isn't much of an issue for me.

Can you explain different in what way? I couldn't find any shotguns that have the spec ops or adjustable stocks for that matter for rent at local shooting ranges.

I picture the spec ops and adjustable stocks to have more flex and wobbles when you shoot. Is that so?
thanks
