The Mossberg 590A1 Pump Action Shotgun (12 gauge) currently serves as my primary home defense shotgun. This shotgun can hold 8+1 rounds of 12 gauge 2 3/4″ shells and can stand up to a variety of adverse weather conditions. The barrel of this shotgun is a 20″ heavy profile barrel and the weapon itself is durable, solid, well built, operates smoothly and cycles shells effectively.
This combat ready shotgun can accomodate 12 gauge 2 3/4″ shells and 12 gauge 3″ shells and works well with both buckshot and birdshot loads. The trigger pull is comfortable and the pump mechanism is smooth and reliable. The safety is located on the top of the receiver and is thumb operated.
The safety, when the red indicator is showing equals ready to fire and with the red indicator covered equals on safe. On my particular 590A1 I have the breacher barrel fore-end, a flashlight mount with flashlight, ghost ring sights, and two additional side saddles, one opposite the ejection port and one on the stock. Overall I find the Mossberg 590A1 to be the finest home defense shotgun currently on the market.
