I got a Mossberg 590A1 Persuader just before Bob's class last year and love it. I think you will like yours, too!
My Mossberg 590 A1 Persuader has a longer magazine tube giving it an 8+1 capacity with 2 3/4 shot shells. It also has a heat shield and a bayonet lug making it look sort of like a Winchester 1897 (M97) Trench Gun. Would be cool to get an M1917 bayonet for it but. . . 🤠Looks like the 590 has a longer magazine, as well. What is the capacity?
Yup, the 24 in.barrel allows a longer mag tube to accommodate 9+1 capacity, which is nice for a competician gun, but having a barrel 4 in. shorter, I like the 590A1 Persuader for HD much better. YMMV 🤠That looks sweet! Just looked it up... a competition gun. 24-inch barrel - not really designed for defense, eh? But, I'm sure it could serve as such.
If memory serves, that was discussed on here a while back as Winchester 1897 (M97) and Model 12 shotguns were slam-fire capable, but perhaps there were others.First shot gun I hog hunted with was a borrowed Ithaca that would slam fire. Wasn’t there a Winchester that would do that also?
I loved watching Dragnet as a kid!Or LE use. I recall he first time I saw Jack Webb use one to apprehend a BG in Dragnet. Because the BG was known to possess a sawed-off shotgun and to sleep with it undercover in bed, they felt it appropriate to match arms. So they checked out a 12G Ithaca and then 5 rounds of 12G magnum load, 00-Buck.

I've been thinking about one of those for my Mossberg 590A1 Persuader defensive shotgun, too. I do like how the Surefire forend/light has the on/off switch integrated, helping to keep everything tidy.I thought i answered this but i guess it didnt go through. Yes it adds weight, but its not like you are carrying it all day…..the grip is very good….
