I love my 590. She's a bit of a heavy *****, but 8+1 capacity, rock solid reliability, and tough as nails make up for it.

Get an 18.5" barrel for it. That's all you need. I give three bits of advice for anyone building a fighting shotgun. 1. Keep it basic 2. Keep it basic 3. Keep it basic

I've seen a couple of videos on a UTA 15. Hickock 45 seemed to like them. But I saw another vid where the shooter had a hard time making it work. Anyone here used one?

Benelli M4. Good enough for the United States Marines, good enough for me.

Benelli M4. Wish I could find one for a decent price, but my M3 and 121 M1 will do for now...

I like my 870. Mag extension, surefire foreend, knoxx stock, side saddle on receiver and stock, and XS big dot rifle sights.

Benelli M1. Light, fast, and dead reliable.

Probably take a nice benelli if I had the coin, but on my budget I love my winchester 1300 defender... With that said a short barrel on my 870's or a Moss 500 would be just fine indeed..

What did you do to shorten that barrel? I'd like to cut down my 28" VR barrel to about 23" but I want to thread it for turkey chokes.

I have a Mossberg 590A1 six shot. I like it a lot.

I would like to add a Benelli M1 Super 90 or M2 to the stable. The FN SLP looks pretty darn good too.

I have two and decide which is my favorite. One is a 870P,18 1/2" brl,syn.stock,rifle sights. The other is a Mossy 930SPX with a standard stock. Both great weapons. I have had no problems with either. Everybody should have a pump and semi.

I used a new quick-cut hacksaw blade (not a cheap one), and duct tape to tape above & below the cut ("measure twice, cut once"), then after the cut, I used a couple Swiss-files to totally even out the cut, as well as knocking-off the burr inside the barrel so that it is completely smooth & even...I finished off with 600 & 1200 grit wet-dry sandpaper. I cut mine down from 26" to 18 & 1/2".

As far as internal threading for a choke tube goes, that's something that a (good) gunsmith can do.
