These are Great Times for Gun Owners!
By adding a detachable magazine (DM) you have to remove the shell lifter and disconnector from the tube mag. Therefore you can't feed from both the DM and tube. Conceivably you could store extra shells in the empty tube held in place by a removable pin or something but you wouldn't be able to feed them without the shell lifter and shell stop.Interesting.
Looks like it'll take shell mags only. May be compelling if it can switch between magazine-fed and the traditional tube-fed.
After my initial foray into 20 gauge shottys (500C and the 590 Shockwave), I'm in the market for a 12 gauge to bring into the калифорния републик to shoot at the local range while visiting.
If I remember correctly either mossberg was the first major company to think the idea or there were conversion kits for the mossberg.Mossberg stealing some of Big Green’s thunder:
There was a company (Knox?) that offered a detachable mag (DM) conversion that fed from the mag tube. The box mag fed into the tube and then feeding was as usual.Borrowed the design from an aftermarket company, didn't they? Hope there was a licensing agreement.
I have two 590 8+1 shotguns and have no desire to try this new offering but I am glad they are trying to be innovative within their catalog line.
