MOSSBERG 590A1 TACTICAL SHOTGUNS
Guns & Ammo ^ | Dec. 19, 2009 | Press Release

Posted on 12/28/2008 3:19:57 PM PST by smokingfrog

Tactical Shotguns now available to general public.

North Haven, CT (January 2009)—From U.S. Service men and women around the world to law enforcement agencies across the country, Mossberg shotguns have experienced nearly four decades of combat and combat readiness in the hands of armed forces world-wide. Enjoying a long-standing relationship with the U.S. armed forces, Mossberg is the manufacturer of the only 12 gauge pump action shotgun ever to pass the stringent U.S. Military Mil-Spec 3443 standard.

Now, for 2009 Mossberg will make available select 590A1 models to the general public. All models will come standard with heavy-walled barrels, metal trigger guards and safety buttons in a durable Parkerized finish. A full range of sighting options will be available in front bead, ghost ring rear or 3-dot configurations. Several variations of stocks will also be available with wood, synthetic, speed feed and adjustable aluminum. All 590A1 models come drilled and tapped from the factory making it easy to mount a Picatinny rail, scope base or other optic options. Other accessories available for the 590A1 are heat shields, Picatinny rails as well as orange buttstocks and forearms for training purposes.

The Mossberg shotgun has a proven place not only in the field but also for home/personal defense.

Actually some do have a magazine. Take the Saiga 12 for example.

I just got a 500; my other 500 is on back order.... a friend has a 590 on back order.... even Mossberg doesn’t know when it’ll get to the retailer. They are SWAMPED... just like everyone else.

I'm considering getting a 500A with the two barrels. I'll put on the 18.5 inch barrel on it and trick it out with all of the cool stuff like a Knoxx stock, extra shell carrier, ghost ring sights, and Duracoat finish (just to add that extra coolness).

I didn’t have an Ithaca, but I had a Remington Model 10, also a bottom ejector. By the time I could afford an Ithaca, they were gone.

Actually, The 410 is finicky about what it eats.

The saiga 12 however, will eat anything

Thanks! I looked it up and it is the one. Its barrel is 1/2" over the lower length limit and it comes in different configurations. Nice!

This Persuader is the Curiser.

What's funny is that I really don't like it when someone takes a perfectly good shotgun and goes "tacti-cool" crazy on it. I've seen shotguns that have more tactical crap than shotgun! I don't even want to guess how much they weigh.

I guess that there's either a fine line for tricking out your gun, or I'm just a big gun hypocrite.

Most likely the latter.

;-)

I bought two Maverick 88 20 gage guns before Christmas. They do not have a 18.5 inch replacement barrel ... only thier 12 gage has replaceable barrels in 18.5 inches. You can buy a slug barrel however. I cut both of mine off at 19 inches from cahmber entry. Great home defense weapons, when you remove the wooden three shell plug and cut the barrel down!

I've heard that those pistol-gripped things are ROUGH on the wrist.

I'd opt for a Knoxx recoil-reducing stock.

I already have enough guns that kick like mules on crack.

A saiga 12 with a fully loaded MD arms 20 rd drum weighs less than a Remington 870

The AK bolt carrier takes a buttload of the kick out

A pump action with a pistol grip and anything above bird shot is asking for a broken wrist.

My saigas have full stocks as does my 870

I was eyeing the Tromix conversions on the atlanticfirearms.com site, and they looked pretty fun. Very expensive, but fun.

Sheesh. That thing has two SureFire lights mounted on it.

You don't even need to shoot someone with that thing. Just point it at them and melt their retinas.

I was talking to a fellow who does conversions last night. He is going to do some other work for me.

I thought about the conversion but its all looks and In some cases actually detract from function

This is all you need, and if you bought a saiga a couple years ago, this config would be about $550

I put two rds of 3” 00 buck in a pistol griped 870 once.

AND braced for it.

I was a fool to shoot two rds.

I like the looks of a classic double barrel but their is nothing inherently wrong with the pistol grip. Just make sure there is a stock too.

I taught skeet for several years. I once tried a SPAS and was surprised how well it handled on the skeet range.

I have arthritis, pretty bad in my hands and shoulders. I have noticed that my Winchester Defender is far easier to handle now that I replaced the standard stock with one which makes it look a bit like an assault rifle. That pistol grip really does help.
