Well, who am I to argue?

My new Mossberg 590A1. It feels very solid. Everything in the action is much tighter, the barrel thicker, and the parts tougher than the 500, although it is perhaps a bit heavy if you're not fit for it. The 8 round tube gives you decent capacity, but again, contributes to the weight. I'm not so sure how practical ghost ring sights and a bayonet are on a shotgun, but I like to pretend the latter would be suited for a home defense firearm... and the former I guess just make it different from my other shotguns, and maybe a bit better for slugs.

At any rate, the whole thing is well built, perhaps even over built... But I like that.

Cheers, Joe! Thanks for the advice.

Nice. Have the 5 shot bead version for my HD shotgun. Keep an eye on the shotgun if you have issues with the round not feeding in the chamber. A lot of 590s have an issue with the cartridge stopper not being molded correctly. quick fix just bend it back a little bit.

Happened to me and a bunch others.

Sorry, that is NOT what biden advised. He advised (edit) a double barrel! Fire 2 shot and SCARE THEM AWAY......except for that guy that recently got arrested for that. anyone remember where that was?

If it's stiff, check that the cartridge interrupter is not interfering with the bolt. Known issue on new 590s. If it is, bend it a bit (to straighten it out sightly)

Try feeding a few round or snap caps and see if it cycles/feeds/ejects OK. Search the web if needed. Good luck! Great gun.

Nice, I also have a 590A1, but the 5 shot version since I am in NYC, great guns.
Gotta love NYC laws. You can throw more lead down-range with 5 trigger-pulls of that 590A1 than emptying 5 10rd magazines of a semi-auto 10/.22 but you're not allowed to have that one, only the criminals have it
