I could probably check them out at a local shop close to me. I'm not sure they have the a1 though. Cabelas is planned to be open in the mall that I'm close to. Can't come soon enough..

I've have both, the 590a1 with the ghost sites. And the 500 persuader with pistol grip and heat shield.

I personally like the persuader more only because its lighter to carry around.
The 590a1 is a VERY solid shotgun compared to my 500. The entire piece is made of a different and thicker metal. Like someone else said, the 590a1 is a tank! You could also use it as a baton or baseball bat and it would never dent.

I opted for the 590a1 20" w/marine coat. Been very happy with it.
Hey just curious what made you go with the Marine-coat ?

Just one more layer of protection for the steel. I live in a very humid area.

You can't put a mag extension on a mossberg unless you buy an aftermarket barrel. You are far better off to buy a kit that includes the barrel and magazine tube you desire from brownells. Better yet, buy the gun you want right off the bat. Mossberg and Maverick both make guns with up to a 9 shot magazine tube from the factory.

I was just reading around and had to post on this one. I just recently bought a M590A1 HB with the ghost ring rear sight, hi-vis ramp front, and bayonet lug etc etc. The end of the box it came in where the label is states SN#, model # etc but it also has "persuader" as model name. So my question is what gives if the persuader is supposed to be a different model?

That's only only the 500. The 590a1 barrel and mag tube are designed different to accept mag extensions.
