    I have a 590A1 with an 18.5" barrel and want to install a light on it. I am looking for some type of clamp to mount the light. I already have a light with a rail mount attached to it. I need a 3 slot picatinney rail to attach the light mount.

    I bought one of these and it was too long

    I saw this mount at CDM and it looks interesting but I don't know if it will fit
    The mount is here http://www.cdmgear.com/bmt.html
    A picture showing the mount with a 3 slot rail is here http://www.cdmgear.com/mossberg.html

    There is only about 3/4" free space between the barrel screwdownthingy and the slide handle (see attached picture). I've looked for an extension to install on this weapon that would lengthen the mag tube but have not found one that fits on the 590A1 (that's a whole 'nother thread and promises of deliveries after money changed hands so let's not go there in this message). Anyone have any solutions for this?

    The CDM BMT mount that you linked to specifically says that it will not fit an A1 model. The CDM MT mount would be your best bet but you might want to email them to find out.
