You'll notice I prefer wood furniture. I like heat shields and bayonets. I'm not fond of ghost rings but my 590A1 has them only because I got a good deal on the gun. The M500 is now a 590A1. I upgraded it with 590A1 parts. I've got a Model 37 out for parkerizing and an M500 out for Cerakote. My newest projects are a Stevens 77E and a Stevens 520.

Nice lineup! [cool] The 520's are heavy clunkers, but solid and have a history of military use, as does the Savage 77 (well, the 67 mostly)

Thank You Gentlemen.
It was the Stevens 77E that served in Vietnam. I did read that there were some Savage marked 67's as well. I don't know if that is true. When it came to Vietnam ive seen photos of troops carrying 520's, 37's and Model 12's. I saw a photo of an Airf Force crewman holding a Model 97 early in the war.

A very large and diverse family.   Must be a blast (pun intended) on holidays.  I love the 37 but hate to work on them.  They cycle slicker then eel snot.   Quite a collection.  If anyone forgot to click on the pictures go back up and do and you will see just how sweet these are.

Thanks 1K80 for the treat as at my age I would rather look at nice guns then gals, well if you had a picture of a beautiful gal holding one of the 870 there would no complaints either.

Here’s my 590A1

A few coats of red mahogany then a coat of ebony. 3 coats of hand rubbed teak oil.
As you’ve seen with my other guns I prefer wood furniture. I like a trench gun. Meaning heat shield and bayonet. Seriously. What good is a combat shotgun that doesn’t have a bayonet?
You’ll also notice that with the exception of a Velcro shot card I never junk my guns up. No lights no
lasers no red dots no camo and never synthetic furniture or rifle type sights. I know I may have opened myself to controversy. And yes I still believe the 590A1 is a better choice for a combat shotgun.

We will just say it is a better choice for you as neither you nor I now which model is better choice for the other man.  

  I have one also as a small Department in NJ wanted my custom 870's and I had to take all their 590A1's in as trades.   They wanted $100 for them and could not buy my guns unless I did.   I Would use it if needed.   I am also a Mossberg Armorer so I kept one as a reference gun.  They are of course a Remington design and they work and work well.  I went though all of them then listed them on Gun Broker for $250 and they all sold in a couple days so I was happy with the deal and Cranbury PD is happy with their AI&P Tactical HD/Duty Shotguns.

Nice job on the stocks.

Nice 590. I like keeping them simple. I’m old school and prefer wood furniture but I admit synthetic is practical for a shotgun that may have to be used and abused in tough conditions. I really like the 509/590 series. They’re my main guns. I love that big loading area and the guns ease of repair. My old High Standard Riot guns are still my favorites.
Just found another one and it’s on its way to live with me.

What  velcro shotgun card do you guys use? I use SOE

I have two of these mounted on my raid vest when I do search warrants or hunting for a suspect or fugitive.
