I have a 590a1 18.5 with ghost rings and an 870 police magnum 18.5 bead with walnut furniture. Both have excellent +2 extensions and upgraded followers and springs. It all comes down to ergonomics, just handle them and load them and pick which one feels better. I like my 870 for it's classic good looks and no frills and my 590a1 because with the speed feed stock and mesa six shell holder i can grab it and have 18 rounds at my disposal. If i were you i'd go with the 590a1 and add a hogue forend and call it a day Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
