@ Faulkner Which heat shield is that?I too carry a personal owned 590A1 as a LEO and prefer the ghost ring sights. I can put Federal Hydra Shok Sabot slugs consistently on a paper plate at 100 yards even out of the smooth bore.
I think it's a great shotgun, it's been 100% reliable with a broad range of ammo, plenty accurate and durable. It mainly stays in my patrol car but I also hunt with it. I would like to have a gun just like yours! How do you like it?
I've had the barrel on my threaded by a gunsmith so that I can use choke tubes. Not only have I taken several deer and a couple of feral hogs with mine using slugs, I have an extra full choke tube that I screw in and have taken a few tom turkeys with it, the ghost rings are real handy for that too.I’ve deer hunted with mine , love the ghost rings. It’s a heck of a brush gun.
This may have been mentionedHas anyone ever used a 590A1 with ghost ring sights in the service? It seems every 590 I've ever seen being used during either training or deployment has just the standard bead sight.
I'm debating whether or not I should move to ghost rings. I have no trouble putting slugs on silhouttes at 25 yards using a bead, which is acceptable accuracy for my purposes. Not sure if undoing decades of practice using a bead would be outweighed by the benefits of ghost rings at shorter distances.
Curious how many service-folks have ever been issued a 590 with GR sights or have added them on.
