Hmmm...
Think you're gonna want two guns if that is your plan. And you mean 590A1 -- the 590 is no heavier than the standard 500 barrel but none of the above are interchangeable, at least not without the magazine tube being swapped.

Just go with the mossberg 500 field/security and call it a day. 6 shots of 00B should take care of any confrontation you're likely to stumble upon.

And if your worried about having a couple extra rounds they make magazine tube extensions. 590a1 is nice but 500 will do the job with equal effectiveness.

But i REALLY like the bayonet lug if i can have a custom mossberg 500 i would want the 590s (thicker barrel and bayonet )so it can be can be used as the ultimate emergency survival tool i don't really care much for the 9 shot magazine tube because id like to be able to interchange mossberg 500 barrels so standard capacity is fine is there a way to do this without getting a custom mossberg 500?

I have a Mossberg 590A1, and have been very, very satisfied with it since. Love it!

I'm not sure but I'm pretty sure the threads from the 9 shot to 5 shot tubrs are different so it wouldnt be a simple swap. Plus I don't think they make the a heavy duty barrel to fit the 5 shot tube. You might think about asking a gunsmith about a custom barrel and maybe you can see about cutting down the 9 shot tube if the threads are different. Or go the easy route and just don't load the full 9 if ur worried about weight.

No.

Get a 500 set. Or get a 590 SP (a 500 with the lug and long mag -- my favorite Mossberg though mine has a PolyChoke). Or get a 590 A1 -- the heavy duty military 590 SP. There is also an 18-1/2" 590 A1 which I prefer. Or get 'em all!!!!
