Description:

Mossberg 590 was developed by O.F.Mossberg & sons company (USA) in the mid-1970s as a "mil-spec" (adopted for US Military) modification of the model 500 shotgun. "Militarization" include strenghtening of the receiver and other parts, installation of the vented heatshield around the barrel, bayonet lug and extended magazine.

    I was considering buying a Mossberg 500. Another cop pointed out that the 500/590 was the shotgun that the US Navy used. If 10,000 sailors can’t break them, then they are pretty tough. I bought it and I haven’t broken it yet. Look at Iraq & Afghanistan; there are Mossberg shotguns in every picture that you see of our service people in combat.

    It’s a good gun. Buy it.

    I have owned this weapon for years. Rock solid and reliable,short but stocky with 9 rounds of pure persuasion!! And a bayonet if needed.

    Easy to handle, easy to transport. *Fits well underneath or beside the seat of your vehicle, cruiser or POV.
    Carry WITHOUT one in the pipe for added safety; it only takes a split second to load a round from the magazine, and usually just the sound of "racking one up" is persuasive enough to prevent a situation from escalating...
    * Check with your State's regulations regarding purchasing/possessing/carrying long-arms.

    Tough gun with flawless performance. Pistol grip is easy to handle and reloads are effortless.

    Love the compact design with the pistol grip. Great home defense. I would put a light on the end. Mossberg is a good gun. But, I prefer a Remington. Rem 870.

    I have one. Its pretty. It looks MEAN and manly. I also have a Remington 870. I prefere the 870. To me, it just feels better and shoots better.

    This is the finest close in combat weapon since the entrenching tool was invented. Its compact for tight corners and room to room with more than enough power to finish what you start. I have one and love it.

    I have owned a Mossberg M590A1 with a Spec Ops Stock for some time and love it. With the ghost ring sights it is very accurate. I have a bayonet for the shotgun because it looks "cool" but I would not suggest using it on the road. I also use a Italian Centurion12 guage 2 3/4" round. It has 1 .650" RB and 6 No.1 buck shot that makes it a great close range self-defense round.

    Own the new 590, Very solid weapon, very accurate, easy to handle, perfect for CQC, 9 in the pipe and easy pump action starts and keeps you firing. If you can get one there is no reason not to. personally dislike the pistol grip unless it has shoulder stock too

    Very durable and effective weapon. Nothing more intimidating than the racking of a shotgun. My 590 has an over the top folding stock with heat shield and five extra shell carrier attached (thats if the nine first rounds arn't enough)!

    Never had a problem with it, functions well. Thinking of cutting the nylon hand band on the slide.

    My department deploys the 590 with 14" barrel and ghost ring sights. I'll take it over a non silenced mp5 or any other subsonic round any day.

    I have the regular Mossberg 590, and absolutely love it! The Compact Cruiser has the mods that I think make it an awesome police tool.

    Coming from a family of Marines and Sailors, I thought that the 590 was the best fit for me, especially since I have a smaller frame. It's been a great piece of gear for me! I wouldn't trade it for anything!

    Good for home defense as well, 00 buckshot, and racks smooth, I sent mine back to factory when I got it for a "Personal" tune up on the action by a factory gunsmith. Action is slicker than snot now. No cost. Action didn't seem just right.
