Posts Tagged ‘Tactical Shotgun’

I’ve been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to use tactical shotguns from Mossberg, Remington, Winchester, CZ, Weatherby, Benelli, H&R, etc. With the myriad of shotgun choices available today; here are my reasons for preferring the Mossberg 590A1 12 gauge pump action shotgun to all others.

  1. The shell tube holds 8 + 1 rounds of 2 3/4″ 00 buckshot.
  2. It’s a combat ready shotgun, solidly built with a heavy, firm feel.
  3. It is smooth operating and has a good fit and durable finish.
  4. In many range session uses; I have never experienced any malfunctions such as a double feed or failure to eject.
  5. Shotgun was designed to function in extreme environments and can take some knocking about.
  6. Can easily accomodate a wide range of accessories such as side saddles, heat shields, flashlight holders, breacher barrels, etc.
  7. Comes standard with a good quality adjustable ghost ring rear sight and a fiber optic front sight.
  8. The heavy weight of the shotgun helps with recoil control.
  9. Can be used with a 1 point, 2 point or 3 point sling.
  10. Trigger group and safety are metal instead of plastic and the safety is well positioned on the top of the weapon,
  11. The barrel finish is parkerized.
  12. Weight empty is 7.5 pounds, barrel length is 20″ and overall length is 41″
