    I'm so freakin' excited - I just bought a Mossberg 590 12 gauge with heat shield, speed feed stock, parkarized, with a bead sight! I've been looking for this exact gun for about a month and a half now. I was about to break down and buy the 50660 (no speedfeed option) from OnPoint and buy a stock seperate, but just as I was getting my credit card I checked gunbroker, and sure enough - there she was! With all the bad reports I've heard from people buying firearms from OnPoint, perhaps this was the Gun God's way of protecting my money/saving me the hassle? But ya, I just wanted to share my excitement!

    That's what the speedfeed stock is for - it holds four shells in the stock. I want to mount a flashlight of some kind on it probably - something I can take off pretty quick. Nothing fance - just a maglight of some assortment. Any ideas on where to find a mount? I'm guessing I'm going to have to shop for a universal mount to do it.

    We need to start another club... :D

    I've posted a group pic of my 590, m9, eaa witness, etc in the photo gallery. The speedfeed stock would be a nice addition. I mounted a cheap laser sight with pushbutton on/off a few months ago. Using the pistol grip, held low, the force (inertia) generated by each shell firing is enough to turn the laser switch off. Never have the prob with the regular 500-series wood stock braced against my shoulder...

    My 590 is standard blued with front bead sight and bayonet lug which I'll accessorize with an m7(?) bayonet sometime AFTER I get a proper tactical light. The laser will be useless in any situation at night.

    Enjoy your 590, try some slugs, have a blast!

    I justified buying a cheap laser since the included mount would work with a maglite or similar diameter light on the 590. A quick turn of an Allen head bolt would enable pulling the light out quickly. The mount is extruded aluminum and possibly available in un-cut raw lengths from industrial metal suppliers.

    I have an M6X mounted on my USPc, but I'm afraid if I bought a picatinny adapter for the mossberg, the tremendous recoil would destroy at least the bulb in no time. I think I want an incandesent flashlight anyway - LED doesn't scatter light good enough for me.

    I think the sidesaddle would just get in the way. I dunno - I'll think about it. I don't really mind going through a maglight every once in awhile, although I would probably take it off almost every time I took her to the range.
    Guess I gotta stock up on slugs and #1 buck now.

    I saw somewhere a company was making aluminum sidesaddles that looked pretty cool, real hi-tech stuff.... I just bought a 500 mariner for the home with pistol grip, got the metal heat shield black used for $10......very nice pistol grip..........

    jng1226 works for digilight and had some recomendations as to which of their models were rated for shotgun use when I was shopping for shottie lights, don't remmber the models, but ask him.

    Best shotgun mount available.
    Not Inexpensive.

    Available from laser devices (not surefire).
    I have one on my duty shotgun. It is so solid nothing moves. you use standard scope rings to hold the light.
