So I was checking my shotgun out yesterday and I was doing a functions check...major problems. It'll pump but when I take the safety off I can't pull the trigger. There is no click, no movement in the trigger at all and the hammer doesn't fall. I have no idea what's wrong. I only shot it once and I'm pretty pissed. Any help? Thanks guys

Only ideas I have is to take it to a qualified gunsmith, or call Mossberg customer service.

I have a Mossberg 590A1 that has two safety devices on it. Maybe the one near the trigger guard isn't activated.

It's just the one safety but I feel like something in it is not working properly

drop your trigger and look for a stray pellet in the sear or works.

BigRed;
I'm trying to visualize whirled peas.

No, the thumb safety. Now, I know some people take the safety apart and reintall it wrong, so much so Mossberg has a oneway screw there and onlt sells replacement parts to "gunsmiths." Could be the issue that someone bubba'd it. Also, the mechanism simply blocks a bar in the trigger assembly that in the forward position precludes firing. After disassembly you'll see this at the back of the trigger assembly. If someone bent this by putting on an aftermarket stock incorrectly they'd have had to put alot of pressure on the too-long stock screw. Just thinking that a too-long stock screw in it now could impinge in the trigger assembly safety bar and prevent it from moving at all.

Is it the original stock? If it was removed was it replaced with all it's parts like washers!?

Is your gun new or used and have there been any changes made? What HockaLouis posted above with happen in a second. I put a GG&G sling mount between my stock and receiver with a new bolt and rendered my 500 inoperable. If it's nothing like that then you can remove the trigger by drifting out the pin that sits at the bottom rear of the receiver and tilting it out from the back. There are two more or less flat bars in slots in the receiver take note of which goes where because they will probably fall out as you work, they just slide back in.
