    I am interested in adding on a +2 mag extension onto my new mossberg 590 and i've heard great thing about Max100 from GunConnection in SC that makes them for it but i have been unable to get a hold of him. Is he still around and also what about going with the Choate extension?

    Still nothing from him. Only got the usual response of his email and i have tried emailing again but to no avail. I see that he logged on the other day too. He must be really busy or not doing them anymore.

    multiple emails to Max100 and still no response. I dont mind the wait but at least a response would be nice. I have the money sitting here waiting to be sent. Whats the other option? The Choate +2? anyone have it? Any pics?

    Sent my Money order on 4-14-10 for a +3 for my 870p. I don't mind waiting, but would like to know if my money order was recieved. If you see this MAX 100, I do not want a refund and will wait for my item.

    If you are talking about the full sized 8-shot 590, why would you be adding an extension to it? I personally am not a fan of the mag tube extending beyond the barrel.
    Also, if a person or company is THAT hard to get in touch with, I would not bother giving them my business.

    This is for the 18.5" 590 which adds 2 to bring it up to 7+1.

    Any mag extension that will fit on an 870 will work on a 590 IF you cut down the mag tube. There is an un-threaded section on the mag tube end just before the start of the threads that will not allow the extension to tighten down far enough to hold the barrel in place.

    For any of you thinking of doing business with Craig, I'd like to share my personal experience. I placed an order in March of this year after being told that it would take 2 weeks. He requires the money up front. I checked with him for status when I hadn't received it in May, and again in June. Both times I was told it would ship that week. Since June he hasn't responded to my emails. I have asked him for my money back, but still no response. I will do no further business with him.

    This is a first I ever heard of a magazine tube extension for a Mossberg. Is there really such a thing? The 500 and 590 both have it so you can not add a tube extension. Am I not seeing something? Are there any pics of this being done?

    The 18" 590A1, 500 breacher, and 835 can use a magazine tube extension.

    I contacted Choate about making custom 590A1 extensions. If I can get 5 orders they will do a special run of +2's to make it 7+1 for 45$. Anyone interested?

    I guess I'll Pm all the interested parties when I get 5 interested customers and we can all order on the same day. He said his initial run would be 20. Also he needs exact measurements of length and threads. I won't receive my 590A1 until next week so I cannot get the correct measurements until then. If someone could get the exact measurements with photos it would speed up the process.

    Russ,

    They only make a +1 and it's almost twice as much $. BTW my 590A1 is in shipping now and should be here by Monday!
