What are the differences between this and the "Security" model 500 aside from the heat shield and bayonet lug?

Quote:
Model 500 vs. Model 590 vs. Model 590A1

The primary difference between the Model 500 and Model 590 is in magazine tube design. The Model 500 magazines are closed at the muzzle end, and the barrel is held in place by bolting into a threaded hole at the end of the magazine tube. Model 590 magazines are open at the end, and the barrels fit around the magazine tube and are held on by a nut at the end. The Model 500 magazine facilitates easy barrel changes, as the barrel bolt serves no function other than holding the barrel in place. The Model 590 magazine facilitates easy cleaning and parts replacement, as removing the nut allows removal of the magazine spring and follower.

The Model 590A1 is a Model 590 with an aluminum trigger guard and safety, and a heavier barrel, intended for military use under the most extreme conditions. The 590A1 is generally sold through military and law enforcement channels, though in most jurisdictions the 18.5" and 20" models may be legally purchased by private persons. 590A1s with 14" barrels are Title II firearms, and may be purchased by private persons in NFA-legal states

The riot gun versions of the Model 500 (Persuader and Mariner) are available with an 18.5" or 20" (47cm or 51cm) barrel depending on magazine capacity. The 590 is only available with a 20" barrel and flush-fit magazine tube. The 590A1 is available with a 14" (35.5cm), 18.5", or 20" barrel. One model sold as Model 590 (catalog item 51663) is technically a 590A1, as it uses the heavy barrel and military trigger group, but unlike models designated 590A1 it is sold on the civilian market.

Unlike Model 500 and 590 shotguns (with the exception of ghost-ring sight 590 models), Model 590A1 shotguns cannot be easily fitted with the factory heat shield, due to the heavy barrel. A heat shield and bayonet lug are required for military 3443G Type I riot shotguns, and some 590A1s are so equipped, but it is not clear if the 590A1 heat shields have ever been offered for sale outside of the military market.

I used to own one of these. I had the parkerized version and man that action was rough. Every time I racked the slide it sounded like someone scratching their nails against a chalkboard. I coundn't stand it anymore so I sold it at a gun show. I don't know if the blued version has similar issues. Maybe not.

Big 5's sales are hilarious. I bought my 590 when it was at $399. Then I came in during my 10 day wait and it had dropped to $339. They gave me $60 back and now it's on "sale" for $399?


Edit: Oh my bad, I read it as $399.

Stop putting them off, last time it was on sale was $319.99.

The combo is now $349.99 which was $329.99 before and after Christmas.

ETA - My bad, the combo is now $249.99 and was $229.99 before Christmas.

So are you saying this is the best price we'll see from now on?

That seems to be the trend.

I bought my combo when it was only $219.99

I got mine for $319 awhile ago. I like it for the price and it serves its purpose for HD.

I already have 2 500 combo's... I was talking about the 590...
But I've always been eyeballing the 590. Does anyone know if this is
the 590a1? You know metal trigger guard and all....

It's not the 590A1. Due to the thicker barrel, 590A1s don't come with the heat shield, they are generally parked, not blued.

Yeah I wasn't sure, but sometimes I've seen the 590A1 with the heat shield and thinner barrel and from the picture I couldn't tell if it was blued or parked... Thanks I haven't had a chance yet to check out my local Big5...
The other mossberg pump I've been seriously thinking about is the Mariner 500 special purpose... those things just look sweet to me

Forget the silly 590 cheapie models.

If you must go Mossberg, get the 590A1.

Personally, I recommend the Valtro. =)

I know you are talking about the 590. It used to be $319 and now it is $339.

I used the combo as another example that the price is not going down.

So stop putting them off, go get the 590 now as prices tend to go up not down.

The one on sale is Mossberg #50645
This was my first gun purchase, what say you? Good buy? Waste? I am planning on upgrading in the future, but the price was right.
