    Good deal? Mossberg 590

    So I bought a Mossberg 590 yesterday. I wanted to see if you guys think I got a good deal.

    It was of course the 8+1 model. It had a duracoat finish applied. It came with a Surefire LED (no battery), Knoxx telescoping stock w/pistol grip, side saddle and wolf spring. It has a bead front sight, but he gave me the ghost ring sights he never installed. He did not have the original stock. Looks to be about 90%.

    $425

    It's tacticool for sure, but my wife already thinks it's too heavy. I honestly don't think the pistol grip works with the Mossberg safety and the button that releases the slide?? (It's my first shotgun, I don't know what it's called.)

    So I may end up trading/selling this off. I think I got a real good deal. The surefire LEDs cost north of $250 new. I think the guy was needing some fast cash.

    What do you think would be a fair price if I did decide to move it?

    If I were looking to make a profit, I'd part it out and return it to its original condition. As is, $450 is a fair price.

    I'd amazon a replacement rear stock. and keep it. You're correct about the safety and slide release on those w/ pistol grip. I've had a 590 going on 15 years, shot the crimeny out of it, and it's a champ.

    Mossy 590s shouldn't have pistol-grip stocks. Precisely because of the reasons already mentioned. Sell the Surefire forearm for $150-200 (if it's LED, not xenon), the shotgun (with a conventional stock) should fetch $300-400 depending on condition. Nice score!

    Well if I'm gonna keep it, having the surefire would be nice to have. I'll try to shoot it this weekend and see how it goes from there.

    some folks prefer Rem. 870's for simple pump shotty's. More common. More aftermarket support. But it's kinda like saying there is more support for small block chevy's than small block ford's. There is, but you can still get anything you can dream of for a Ford. Same with these shotty's. You can get more stuff for an 870, but I doubt you will come up with a "gee, I sure wish they made one for my 590"

    also; Mossy 500 series has dual extractor hooks, which supposedly makes them more reliable than 870. Though I've never personally heard of an 870 failing to extract.

    I'd throw a factory stock on it, throw it in the trunk of my car, and call it my get home gun.

    Well, if you're gonna' KEEP it, it's a bit late to worry about whatEVER you paid for it.

    If I am not mistaken there is a version of the Knox stock that is in a conventional synthetic configuration. I would remove the pistol grip stock and put a new shock absorbing conventional stock on. Even a Speedfeed stock would be helpful. The 590 is easy to work on. They may not be as polished as a Remington but they do get the job done. The police force I work for has had Mossberg 500s for nearly 10 years and they still get the job done.

    Keep the Surefire forearm and get rid of the rear stock and pistol grip. Collapsible M4 stocks are handy and useful but they don't belong on everything. Magpul now makes nice shotgun stocks. The safety and the button to rack the slide is why I like 500/590 over 870s.

    Nice score.

    I had been thinking about getting a Saiga 12, but the $$ is outrageous. I pretty much decided to let that little dream die and look for some cheaper alternatives. Though not semi, that's definitely an acceptable alternative to shelling out a grand or so.

    Ever SHOT a Saiga? I thought they were a cool idea too, until my buddy got one. (this was 5-6 years ago too, when they were only like $450). and after about 50 rounds I too let that dream whither and die. loose, sloppy, lousy ergo's. Seating a magazine is a chore, at best. Loading a magazine is even worse. they "point" about as naturally as, well no funny words here but they don't point for crap. and a shotgun, even a semi-auto "fighting gun" like a Saiga should still point naturally. I hated the thing. Junk. but that's my opinion, and my wife will tell you what that means!!

    Nope, never actually shot one. Been hoping someone would bring one to the range though so I would get a chance, but that hasn't happened yet. I did get to shoot a KelTec KSG?, maybe, I think. It was a small bullpup with twin feeding cylinders that had a max capacity of 15 rounds (w/one chambered). I did like it. But those are a grand too. I found some Saiga knockoffs for around $479.00, but haven't read any reviews on those yet.

    I'll take your word that the Saiga 12 sucks.

    How about the Saiga 308?

    I was showing off my gun at church tonight. A buddy of mine just purchased a 590 with the speedfeed stock. I told him I was gonna replace the stock and he wants to trade. Is that a good deal?

    But I just bought the original stock and forend off a guy for $28 shipped.

    A pistol grip on a home defense/fighting shotgun is no good, unless its for breaching. HOWEVER, I have heard ZERO good about the speed feed stocks. Malfunction junction, from everything I have heard about them.

    Nice, any gun is a good deal if you can afford it.
