I got a Mossberg 590A1 Persuader just before Bob's class last year and love it. I think you will like yours, too! (y) (y)

Looks like the 590 has a longer magazine, as well. What is the capacity?
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. . . 馃

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.
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 馃

First shot gun I hog hunted with was a borrowed Ithaca that would slam fire. Wasn鈥檛 there a Winchester that would do that also?
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. :unsure:

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.

The Result:

I loved watching Dragnet as a kid! (y)(y)

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鈥..the grip is very good鈥.
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.
