Talking about how plastic will recover from an impact that will crush steel. Not even mentioning all the exclamation points thrown in there for effect. There is no factual basis behind his statements, just a flat out emotional long response to someone he did not agree with. That is drivel.
Additionally, he didn't even read the entire thread or even quote me properly. He deleted things and then tried to make it look like I was giving inaccurate advice. For one I never said anything about barrels being interchangable, I only referred to access. Also the guy never mentioned anything about wanting a hunting gun or what ever, he wanted to know about the plastic trigger group for which I have experience since I just broke my old one and changed it.
First of all Darren, I wasn't "going off" or "being emotional", I was just amazed at how backward and just plain WRONG the information was that you were giving.
"Doing drop and rolls in world war three"? How about just falling on a rock with your shotgun in your hand and your finger in the trigger guard.
The reason I said that about the trigger guard crushing was because a guy on another forum had a metal trigger guard on his get crushed (I don't remember how) and either he or another guy on the forum said that the plastic ones are better in the respect that they will regain there shape but the metal won't, which is what I wrote.
Have you ever been in combat or even in the military Darren? You don't have to be in "world war three", those kind of things happen in training as well.
I've seen a rock come flying through the trees and crush the carrying handle on a M-16 a guy next to me was carrying when we set off a 500 lb bomb and were trying to get out of the area. By the grace of GOD his hand wasn't in it at the time.
Almost everything you said in that paragraph I was refering to was wrong. For example; "more barrel choices for that same reason (the take down screw)--WRONG, "metal trigger group (on the 590)" -WRONG, and "you can get a Mariner in the 590 and all the stuff that will go on the 500 also fit the 590". What?? All WHAT stuff?
You wrote that you "never said anything about barrels being interchangeable" you "only refered to access". Well what would you want to "access them" for if you weren't going to interchange them/swap them with the barrel you already have on the gun?
As far as the guy mentioning hunting, I brought that up because you were talking about other barrels.
What other barrels would someone want for a shotgun? You've already got your H.D. barrel on the 590, other barrels are for hunting, skeet/trap and most people use chokes on them except for the slug barrels. You can't get ANY barrels for a 590 that accept chokes that I've ever seen.
So the bottom line Darren, since you want to talk so rudely about me (calling my posts "drivel and b.s.") I'm going to be blunt with you and tell you "Put up or Shut up"!
I explained everything well in my first post, contrary to all the innacurate information you gave about the 500 & 590. and I didn't disrespect or belittle you in any way.
I gave information in my original post where people can find out the truth on these things (if they don't believe me) and I'll write it here AGAIN so ANYBODY can go online and see which of us is giving accurate information and which is posting "drivel" or "b.s.".
I just went to the Mossberg web site and clicked on "accessories" then "barrels" and all the replacement/accessory/interchangeable barrels are shown and there were SIXTEEN for the 500 and NONE for the 590!
Also at Cabela's, NONE listed for the 590!
As I said in my first post, all other barrels I've found on the web for the 590 were the same cylinder bore barrel either a little shorter or longer and maybe some different sights, that's it.
If you find some others please, tell me, because I'd like to get a different barrel or two for my 590.
You say what I said and am saying is "drivel"?? PUT UP OR SHUT UP, Prove it! Give us some information/ web sites etc where we can find the "more barrel choices" you spoke of, and the metal trigger guards on the 590s and show us how "all the stuff that goes on the 500 also fit on the 590".
I challenge ANYBODY reading this string to look up the information for yourself. Go to the Mossberg site and talk to the people that actually make them and ask 1.) if the 590 (not the 590a1) has a metal trigger guard, 2.) if any of the 500 barrels, chokes, etc will fit on the 590 and 3.) if there are any replacement/accessory/interchangeable (same meaning) barrels available for the 590 and see for yourself whose post was "drivel".
