Mossberg 590A1 LE 12ga 20" 9 Shot GRS Speedfeed Stock Parkerized
by Stephen M Date Added: Saturday 23 April, 2011
I was looking for a solid pump similar in design to my Win 1300 Defender and my Mossberg 930 SPX, as in a shorter barrel w/FULL MAG TUBE! I have never liked the setup on the Rem 870's, ESPECIALLY having experienced the 1300 setup! The Mossberg has the bolt release in the same spot as 1300, and after the 930 SPX I've really grown to love the Ambi-Tang mounted safety, and this model COMES w/the Aluminum, NOT plastic, triggerguard and safety (I think this issue is overblown anyway, but worth it to get it from the factory in desired setup). After the Rem 870 was quickly eliminated I was looking at the 500, 590, or 590A1, and..... After examining the 500 vs. 590 'debate' I decided I wanted the bayonet lug(WHY NOT!!) and the20" barrel w/8-shot tube. So, that left 590 vs. 590A1 (the A1 has better machined parts and seems to have more care taken in it's construction!), after picking up the A1, I KNEW it was for me, it's not nearly as heavy as people make it out to be (but you CAN probably pound nails/crack a skull w/the barrel!LOL), and although it is NOT the smooth, silky pump of the Win 1300, it DOES DEFINITELY 'smooth out', and the pump stops about an inch from receiver while pumping, making it HARD to even TRY and short stroke action w/my technique! I just cleaned it and lubed it and cycled the action about 100 times and can already tell a diff, imagine about 200-300 00 Buck and slugs will help EVEN MORE! It just feels great, takes the bayonet off your M16-type rifle! And there is, IMHO, no other shotgun besides an Ithaca style that loads as EASILY or QUICKLY as a 500/590 series, just drop shell in loading port and PUSH! And it is NO problem for my 6'0" 170 Lbs self to keep the shotgun shouldered with strong hand and load w/weak hand while keeping aimed downrange. So, after seeing and understanding the diff between the 590 and 590A1, I KNEW THIS WAS MY GUN! The GRS line up PERFECTLY, I was looking at the 590 SPX but having the 930 SPX and having to put a slugster stock on it to get a locked in and consistent cheek weld, I decided to go w/the lower profile Mossy GRS' and installing an XS Big Dot up front, and the SpeedFeed stock that I only got cause it was the only 20" A1 w/GRS in stock at time, but it REALLY RETAINS the shells EXTREMELY tightly, yet not difficult to remove.... IT ROCKS! AND Buds gave me, automatically actually, the price drop difference!! SOO COOL! Great SOLID GUN, couldnt be happier, an M7 bayonet will suffice for now, M9 is gonna be here soon!! GET IT, WONT REGRET IT!!! Be back after PATTERNING IS DONE!!
