Update on Remington 870 vs Mossberg 590 comparison on Remington 870 Forum:
I did a review about comparing the Remington 870 Tactical Express (6+1) and the Mossberg 590SP (7+1). I recently have put about 200 – 300 rounds into both after about a month total in shooting. I dry practiced with both on a regular basis for about 10 – 15 minutes every 2 to 4 days. I used dummy rounds (snap caps) for the dry practice. Here are my opinions about the differences in both. Before I compare the differences I just want to let everyone know here that I am very happy I have both and would not want it any other way. My father taught me to know and adapt to every weapon you have or at least get familiar with it so you can handle any challenges in the future. So that is what I do with all the firearms I own. So here were the differences after about 1 month of shooting and dry practicing both.

Here are my thoughts and comparisons:
1. The 870 trigger pull is SUPERIOR to the 590. That was the biggest difference by far when comparing the 2. This was the biggest surprise and could be a deal breaker if people are concerned about trigger pull.
2. There is no difference in quality and feel of either. I thought this was going to be the huge difference but to me it wasn’t. The reason why I thought it was going to be a huge difference is because of the aluminum receiver. But the 590 Bolt and Barrel are made out of steel so no issues (think of the AR being the same type of aluminum/steel design).
I had several posts about Mossberg 500/590 and was surprised by number of questions about this shotgun. First of all, I recommend checking infographic: Differences Between Remington 870 vs Mossberg 500 shotguns. It explains differences in controls and design. Mossberg 500/590 is a great and very popular shotgun. There are 10,000,000 of Mossberg 500/590 shotguns made to date.
So, this post is about the best and must have upgrades for Mossberg 500/590 shotguns.
One of the frequently asked questions. Both shotguns are used by military and law enforcement. Remington 870 and Mossberg 500/590 are produced in hundreds of thousands and well known around the world. Each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Now Magpul enter Mossberg 590/500 accessories market. I think stock and forend for Mossberg shotguns is going to be extremely popular.
Magpul stock and forend are easily customizable and give shooter a lot of features and benefits. All other accessories which were availalble for Remington 870 shotguns will be available for Mossberg shotguns too: sling attachments, cheek risers etc.
Here is another post about my friend’s Mossberg 590.
We have tried installing Aimpoint H-1 holographic sight and Millett Scope.
Thanks to S&J Hardware for sending me Mossberg 590 Picatinny Rail for tests. It was installed on my friend’s Mossberg 590.
My friend was using rail which was installed using trigger pins. But S&J Hardware rail has lots of benefits compared to those rail.
Installation with four screws is rock solid, there is no movement between receiver and rail. It is low profile, it is lightweight. Highly recommended product.
