Mossberg 590A1 - purchased :)

Recommended Posts

I looked low and high and found someone who had the exact model I had picked out after much deliberation over my last 2 days of research.

 

Shipping today is the 590A1 12 ga Mariner . I should have it next Wednesday :)

 

Question is ..I won't be using the factory stock . The LOP is too long. Since it is a brand new gun I want a brand new stock on it..which for me means adjustable .

 

So can someone recommend a nice good quality adjustable stock for it ? I have been pouring over reviews for the Kicklite and the Knoxx SpecOps..for the Knoxx it seems the people who complain about cheek bite are the ones who have it adjusted down into its shortest position so I won't go with that one. The Phoenix Kicklite though..I haven't seem anything negative about it . Does anyone have any experience with it?

 

I like the idea of recoil reducing..but if it does that at the expense of behaving funky elsewhere , I'll just take it on the shoulder with a good quality adjustable stock and decent butt pad combo.

 

I need a single point tactical sling and something to hold additional rounds ( for training) .

 

Thanks :)

The "Mariner"? Is that like a Marine unit in stainless steel like Remington's 870 Marine Magnum?

Yes, it's very similar to that from the pictures I saw.

 

IPW, congratulations! Lots of luck with it. Is it for both of you, or are you going to get his and her's?

 

I have a 500, but those 590 a1's are really starting to call out to me. I have not bought anything in awhile, but I think I may break down soon.

Thanks :)

 

Frank if you want to try it at the BH let me know! Will be doing GFH Urban Shotgun with it May 20th. Pete is looking at a Browning BPS Stalker. That is too big for me , so we may not be his and hers. :) I'll have him try my 590A1 before I swap out the stock though. I think a couple that shoots together should have at least one matching set :p

Get a milspec adapter for an adjustable stock and ar pistol grip.

I like this idea. There are a ton of great adjustable AR stocks out there. This gives you far more options than a shotgun specific stock.

Plus they make a recoil reducing buffer tube to.help with those magnum loads. My buddy has a 870 with the lep set up and recoil reducing buffer tube... 00 buck felt like.bird shot. Plus he he added a magpul stock to it made it look fierce. Although if I do.it I'm going with the troy warhammer stock... You should cheack it out

One important thing to consider if you're thinking about a pistol grip stock is that the safety will be very hard to use as it was intended. You have to compromise your firing grip quite a bit to deactivate the safety. A lot of people seem to have the attitude that it's a pump shotgun and that you don't need the safety anyway. I'm not one of those people, so pistol grip stocks and mossbergs don't go together IMHO.

 

Don't forget the short LOP Hogue stock we discussed in the other thread.

I odered it with that recoil reduction feature

No, do NOT get this stock. Get the one we talked about (Hogue youth stock) awhile ago.

The youth stock is still a 13 inch LOP. I need a max of 11 " I have freakishly short arms. . I tried several youth tocks at the gun show. 13 inch me no reachy.

O ordered the LEO version which sits low , doesn't cover the safety , and still allows you to use bead sights. I do have seriously short T Rex arms :)

Nice Sandy, congratulations on the new Shotty, pic's when she (or is that he for a females gun) comes in..

I think it is a he....It has a pistol grip.

Is it just me or is IrishPete MIA?

He is playing mass effect III

Nice pickup on the shotgun...I'll have my 590 at the GFH Urban 1 as well.....but I think it's on 5/19, not on 5/20.

I'll double check that ! Thanks , see you there :)

I was referring to pistol grip stocks in general, and not that mesa models specifically. Either way, you'll see what I'm talking about once you install it :) Good luck!

I prefer my pistol grip and adjustable stock over a standard shotgun stock. Especially when.it comes to tactical loading, clearing corners, and shooting in general. Ipw if Ur ever in the ba or ss area u.can try my set up before u install Ur mesa set up

Will it cover the safety ? With the low version and the adapter , it claimed it didn't. I do want to be able to use the safety.

 

I'm guessing the youth stocks are meant for preteens or something. I'm barely 4 "11 ..junkmanted lopped my Ruger Mini 14 stock down to a 10 1/2 inch lop and it is perfect :) It was 13 1/2 ( the hogue youth is 13 1/2) . I had to tip the trigger with the very end of my finger and I could not reach the slide to rack it.

 

I'm kind of doomed with long guns unless it is a Cricket lol...the adjustable stock goes down to 11.25 inch ...then if Pete wants to use it he can extend it.

I got this one..will it mess with the safety?

 

http://www.nokick.co...cal%2093220.htm

 

Its not that it messes with the safety, it's that you can't reach it with your thumb. You'll have to reconfigure your hand to operate it.

 

You could take the standard stock that came on your shotty and cut it down to your preferred length.

 

I don't like the stock you chose, but that's just me.

No, it won't mess with the safety any more than any pistol grip stock will. Look at the picture, and then imagine yourself trying to disengage the safety. You have to break your firing grip to get your thumb (or some other finger) onto the safety. I imagine it's even more of a stretch for someone with small hands. It's do-able, but it certainly isn't fast.. which is why a lot of people with pistol gripped mossbergs just leave the safety in the fire position.

 

ETA: Ray beat me to it :)

Oh , I see what you mean with the safety. I could not reach the safety with my dominant hand on the Mossberg 500 with the regular non pistol grip stock, anyway. I tried a bunch at the show.

 

The thing with cutting down he stock is it gets to have a not so big butt plate to shoulder and none of the recoil pads fit it when you have to lop 2 or 3 inches off. You have to use hockey tape or something. With my Ruger Mini 14 I'm fine with a small hard butt plate. Not with a 12 gauge though , thanks. And I always had to use duct tape and blocks to reach pedals on various bicycles and big wheels . I'm 42 ...I don't want to rig hockey tape and limb saver pads on my gun. :)

Not trying be a jerk, but its a defensive shotgun. Cut the standard stock, get recoil pad and slip it over the hole. DONE. If you don't like it, oh well, your out a 10 dollar stock.

The recoil pad won't fit if you take more than an inch off the stock , especially a youth one .. Without hockey tape. Not trying to be a jerk :)

 

Maybe I can make something out of the gel inserts from a Victoria's Secret Miracle Bra and some duct tape :)

    • OK, a bit of a presumptuous thread title, but I'm just back from an almost-cross-country road trip that took me through 16 states, from NJ to Idaho and back.  The goal was to get out to visit Mom, for the first time in almost a year.   My wife wasn't ready to get back on a plane ('flying aluminum germ tube', in her vernacular), she's never seen most of the interior of the country, I'd not taken any vacation yet this year, and so the plan for a two-week, 6000 mile road trip was hatched. The good news, Mom is fine.   Her assisted living facility locked down tight back in March.  No visitors, period.  Family members could stand outside their closed windows and talk with residents by phone.  Harsh, but they've not had a single covid case all year.  I don't know if any other senior living facility can make that claim.   If they had been in Cuomo's NY, a quarter of the residents would be dead.  Recently, they started allowing in-person (masked, socially distant) visits, so we scheduled our trip to take advantage. We originally planned to camp (minimizing risk of bringing the virus to Mom), but learned that nearly all hotels have Covid protocols that involve deep cleaning between guests, no maid service during a stay, grab and go breakfasts instead of the buffet, etc. so we decided to not take a chance on snow camping once we got to higher elevations.   Most of the states we passed through require masks when indoors, but are pretty much open for business.   Mask compliance in the the common areas of the hotels, restaurants, and in stores ranged from maybe 80% in most states to perhaps 60% in a few...Indiana, Wisconsin, Montana seemed particularly low.  Mask use correlated with age; older, at risk folks nearly all wore them, the young-uns didn't care so much.   No confrontations over masks anywhere we went, everyone just went about their business. We had lunch with a friend of mine in Billings, and in a week a Covid flare-up had Billings hospitals at full capacity, with new patients being sent to nearby towns. We drove long hours most of the way out, did a quick tour of Notre Dame since our route took us through South Bend, then enjoyed the Chicago Skyline after dark, without the slightest interest on getting off the beltway to actually go into Chicago.   Interestingly, and I take this as a further sign of Chicago disfunction, EZPass works until you get halfway around the Chicago beltway, then abruptly it is no longer accepted at the toll plazas, and you have to use iPass, which of course we didn't have, and all of the cash lanes were shut due to Covid, but also to stick it to any non-locals passing through without a valid pass. Sightseeing really started in South Dakota, with a few hours in Badlands national park (where I lost my drivers license, apparently when purchasing a multi-park pass).  Both Dakotas have badlands, and they are both very cool to visit.  Besides the fascinating geology, we saw a lot of elk and bison, and a bighorn ram, just 30 yards off the road.  I grew up in prime bighorn range, and this was only the second or third one I've ever seen.   Next up was Mt Rushmore, and a drive-by of Wall Drug. Montana was more of a focus for us, both to visit a number of towns we're considering for retirement in a few years, and also to visit Glacier National Park.  I'd not been there in decades.  We lucked out with the weather.  It was warm and dry, they'd not yet had any snow this year.  The Going to the Sun Highway is the road that bisects the park, carved out of a mountain face most of the way (it's a National Civil Engineering Landmark), and most years it is snowed closed by mid-Oct...and not plowed open again until early July.  It gets a LOT of snow, there are sections where drifts and snow slides can bury it under 80 feet of snow some years.  But we got to drive it in both directions, with only a little smoke from distant wildfires partially obscuring the highest peaks. We crossed into Idaho and followed the Salmon river south for half a day.  It's some of my favorite country anywhere, and it happened to be the first day of Elk season so every turnoff was occupied by trucks, horse trailers, quad runners, etc.   I had to smile at all of the gun cases we saw carried through the hotel lobby that night.   Saw quite a few nice racks on trucks, too.   Almost every general store seemed to carry ammo (less than most years, though) along side the groceries, fishing tackle, auto supplies, etc. My home town has a Sportsman's Warehouse, like a Cabelas, but less gentrified.   Biggest guns and ammo department I've ever seen, so I had to check it out.   The inventory of guns was definitely low, but they didn't seem to be quite out of anything.  Lots of revolvers, shotguns, bolt action rifles.   Quite a few semiautomatic handguns. A handful of ARs, and their usual good selection of .50 cals.  Quite a bit of ammo as long as it wasn't 9 mm or .22, I didn't see those.   They had a pretty good stock of reloading supplies, most bullets and many powders, but primers did seem to be completely sold out.   Prices on anything in stock seemed normal, or very close to it.   They chose to sell out rather than price gouge. We didn't do much sightseeing on the way back, other than a diversion to drive around Bear Lake, a rather large and incredibly turquoise body of water spanning the Idaho-Utah border. A week after we left Glacier, they had five consecutive days of snow with highs in the single digits, lows in the minus single digits.   Two days after our stay in Des Moines, they got 9 inches of snow.  As I said, we got lucky with the weather.   And I avoided getting ticketed for driving without a license!
    • There is no hard rule on what to use for self-defense! I try to stick to following criteria: 1. A round designed specifically for self defense purposes 2. A round that you have tested personally and has proven to feed reliably and expand reliably.  3. A round that is readily available for immediate purchase, not something that is backordered for months.  
    • Hmmmm, who knows maybe a glitch. Glad to know it’s not that damn regulated though, thx for helping out.
