I believe so, but i would verify that with the dealer before ordering. IIRC, it cost more than my used mossy did.

I was reliably informed by a Tennessee officer that at least one SWAT team had a shotgun with a bayonet to deal with the pit bull type dogs. Apparently, they are real hard to shoot with all the leaping around, but the bayonet kind of holds them still enough for the job to be done.

i think you must have one or another blade no matter the cost.its only a matter of time before the quail revolt we have fed and given them a place to live for years and there tired of it thay want all of what thay had back.and the pheasent we brought them thousands of miles from there native china and thay have no place to breed or live most places thay must be farmed.and i dont even want to talk about the chucker!! you know where there from dont tac out them shotguns . looking for a rail for a beretta 687 dont need to carry much just a lite,laser,ghost ring and a greanade launcher on the upper barrel save the lower for clays and birds.o ya the bayonet forget it i carry a sword(never know about the rabbits remember jimmy carter)

The signature difference of 500 to 590 is the bayonet lug (unless it's the 590A1 series). Every part is the same between a 500 and a non A1 590, except the bayonet lug. You want a lug on a 500 just buy a 590.

All these uses are starting to make more sense now regarding the practical use of a bayonet on a boomstick. Thanks a bunch.

Still laughing at the Quail Revolt!

Ever see photos of some of the stores in cities where riots are trashing EVERYTHING- except the stores with conspicuously armed staff? Pump gun with a bayonet would be useful there.

And one serious lesson I DID learn about a bayonet on a rifle- when you are running, and trip, going ass over teakettle, you will NOT stick the muzzle in the mud and get a blocked barrel IF there is a bayonet fixed.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

Default British Bayonet Charge in Basra

Remember this? I just wished they'd been wearing kilts!

Took this of the original there in Scotland...

I just bought a Savage 350 (think Ithica 37 ) and I'd love to have an M-7 or M-9 on it. Some day I hope to get a Mossberg M 590A-1. #50771 comes with 20"bbl w/ M-9 bayonet. I'm not sure which branch uses this model in Affganistan, the Marines are using the M4 Benelli I believe. And I don't think you'd have to worry about the shot pattern a foot from the muzzle, it just doesn't expand that quickly.

I chopped the barrel on my 870 to a short (legal) length to have the ability to maneuver in the confined spaces in my home. I sure as hell wouldn't add the length back with a freaking knife.

If you shoot somethin with a shotgun, and it doesn't die, youu probably need more than a bayonet!!
I guess it looks good but really impractical I think.
