Got it to the range over the weekend. Absolutely love this thing!
Nice shotty. I really like Mossbergs!
Great addition to the 'Welcome to Our Home' committee. :hand10:
Nice addition to the family.
Got to spend some more time with the new Mossberg 590a1 this afternoon.
Shot some Federal Power-shock 00 buck, Federal Vital-Shock flight control 00 buck, Federal Tactical slugs, and Remington managed-recoil 00 buck along with with Federal General Purpose #8 shot (just for fun stuff).
The Power-shock gave about a 5" spread at 15 yards. With the Vital-Shock's I fired five round at an 8" paper plate. All 45 pellets stayed within a 6 1/2" circle. The Tactical slugs were dead-on accurate leaving a 3" diameter hole after 10 rounds from 20 yards.
The general purpose rounds were used to shred the plates and did a fine job indeed!
Recoil even with the full load slugs was not bad. I do have a shock absorbing pad on the stock which does make a big difference. Rapid follow-up shoots are absolutely no problem.
BTW, the weapon is otherwise 100% stock with only the front bead for sighting.
very nice addition
Great pump, I have the Mossberg Maverick 88, basically the same except for the location of the safety I believe. I did change the stock out on mine.
Very Nice, I just got the same gun and I'm going to the range today for the first time. After reading this post I'm near foaming at the mouth!
VERY NICE!! GOOD LUCK with it! Had one in Iraq(and had an 8-shot 500 for years)it will get the job done.:smile:
Very nice addition. Should last a lifetime.
