Got offered a partial trade on something its a Mossberg 590 special purpose 9 shot speed feed.

Anyone used one? Thoughts? What do u think one used is worth?

Not a ton of experience with them but I like them, they are reliable. Comparable to a Rem 870. Depending on condition, anywhere around $300-500.

they are one of the fastest to reload pumps on the market for 3gun and such, big loading port with no lifter gate in the way means you can easily load 2 at a time no problem.... and once they wear in they pump fast, a little stiff to start with but great reliable guns.

Got one. Only problems mine has is that it will not eject 3" shells reliably. Most will get caught in the ejection port.

Like Wes said, fast to load! Good over all shotgun. Brand new they are about $600 before taxes (and shipping).

I have one, great gun. That model appears to not be the A1, so will likely be matte blued and not have a thick walled parkerized barrel & tube. The trigger guard and safety will both be plastic instead of metal. Maybe verify these points first with the seller.

The biggest giveaway that the one pictured is not an A1 is the lack of Ghost Ring sights.

The thicker barrel just adds unneeded weight.

Fine gun for what it is. I've heard some say the plastic guard will break over time. Easy to get a metal one to replace it if it does. It'll definitely make bad guys and targets alike go blam.

The thicker barrel just adds unneeded weight.The added weight is negligible in my opinion. The resulting heft it offers the gun helps obsorb/dispense recoil too. Carrying weight isn't an issue for me either since this isn't a gun a cart around with me on my person.
I have a number of very light shotguns, and some I find too light actually. My 20" 590A1 isn't really that far off from my tactical 870.

The 590 was available either parkerized or blued (and, in some cases, Marinecote).

The A1 is also available with a bead.

590 thoughts? My thoughts are they are awesome.

I have a 590A1 and it's the only pump I'll ever buy, because there really is no pump that can beat it. 870 is about equal, but depends which 870.

My only gripe is it's weighty barrel.

I put Hogue furniture on it, but am thinking of going with the Mesa Tactical collapsible M4 w/ pistol grip stock. My only other plans are a proper sling & a tritium bead.

Absolutely love mine. Heat shield, regular stock. Picked it up new for a little over $500.
