You have a 590 or a 590 A1? If you think a 590 is too heavy you need a shorter gun, and I would ask you to pick up a loaded 20" A1 and see what you think. THOSE are muzzle heavy! Built like tanks they are.

Frontier, how do you like that SureFire fore end? I've been thinking about getting one, but the price is pretty scary.

I like it ok I guess. The only problem is that it is a little heavy and makes it a little unbalanced. I have it on the 590A1 so it has the long barrel, heat shield, ghost ring sights, bayonet lug, kitchen sink, etc. so that doesn't help things.
Yep they are pretty pricey. The only reason I have it is because it came with the gun when I bought it from a buddy that was having $$$ trouble years ago.
The light is def. well made and heavy duty though.

How did you get the heat shield on while running the ghost rings? I was told it was either/or on those two.

I could see how it would be hefty on the front end, but I haven't seen any other lighting solutions other than cheap crap.

The shield doesn't extend the full length of the barrel. Everything was on the weapon when I bought it from my buddy. I'm not sure what he put on and what it came with from the factory. Here are a couple pics.

Man, that fore end looks sweet. Thanks for the info. I've been looking into Salient Arms conversion of a 930(I think that's the model). I read about it in Recoil magazine. I won't ever part with my 590A1 though, it's my go to HD gun and I also shoot skeet with it although the short barrel lets my buddies clean my clock most of the time.
