Talking My 590A1 W/ bayonet. pics added

Well today I got to pick up my 590A1 and boy do I like her from what I have seen for first impressions. I was very happy to see that it did come with the bayonet, since I wasnít sure it would, but I must say the bayonet looks killer on it. Now I know that it is impractical, but if someone comes at me and then sees a bayonet on the end of my shotgun I bet the will think, this guy is crazy Iíll go after someone else. Not the picture that ordered from showed the speed feed stock but it didnít come with it but the shop did knock down the price to what it would be without it, and I think I will still get one to put on her.

Now my real decision comes with using 2 ĺ shells or 3 inch. With the 2 ĺ I will get 8+1 with the 3 I get 7+1. Since the barrel is smooth and not rifled I just think I should go with the 2 ĺ and take the extra shell. But I am on the fence since I will only loose one shell, and gain some range.

will upload pics later.

Have you ever shot a 3" 12ga before? The recoil is a bit much for me and for HD I prefer lighter loads. I'm assuming you are asking for HD purposes.

Thanks from flying_gage

Ok my pics are too big and not uploading any way I try. And the use is for HD or whatever I find it useful for.

Pretty cool philip26p. I'm not in the market for a shotgun, but now I want to reconsider.

GARRARD the bayonet is what caught your eye isn’t it. I mean a with a Shotgun is not normally someone you want to mess with, but a guy with a bayonet affixed to the shotgun is crazy and you want no part of him.

I've never seen a modern shotgun with a bayonet, let alone come with one.
Although I don't really think it would be that effective, unless you've actually been trained in bayonet fighting. But the intimidation factor goes up significantly with a bayonet attached to the end of it I would think.

It was more of a total package thing. I've got that bayonet in tan. Realistically, I haven't fired my shotgun in years, which is why I don't get a new one. And the one I have (Winchester 1300) is basically the same thing as a 590 or 870. The 590 FLEX on the other hand does offer a little bit more for me if I ever get into hunting birds or skeet shooting. Lastly, ever since I shot that M26 MASS, nothing really compares, but those will never go to the civilian market.

I vote for 2-3/4". The effect that gun will have on a target at near max range is determined more by the choke than a couple extra hundred fps at the muzzle. Unless you are running a full choke, which I doubt you are on a 590, your shot will not have any better performance on a distant target and all you get is punishing recoil and 1 less round.

With a typical combat shotgun choke (IC or Cyl), and a distant target that needs attention, I have two words for you: "Select slug."

I have kept a 590 intimidator next to my bed for years. Mine has the heat shield and a bayonet. My wife said she could never shoot someone, but might just use the bayonet. Go figure.
2 3/4 will do nicely in just about any circumstance.
