I have 2 870Ps and neither eject as far as the Mossy 590A1. The 870s get the shell out but they fall pretty close by........the 590 really flips them out.

Just a observation. Does your 870 throw the spent case near or far?

Depends on how I run it.

The 870s ejector depends on how fast you rack the slide. Doing it fast will eject it further. On Mossbergs the blade ejector will throw shells with minimal movement of the slide. I like the blade ejector better even though I hear that they can wear down after a while, but they are easy to replace compared to an 870 ejector; which can often be a factory job to replace. Although, you will almost never hear of an 870 ejector needing replacement.

I took my 500 dove hunting last Sunday. I forgot how far that thing spits out empty hulls. I would expect the 590 to be the same. I think I'll go back to the double, it's hard enough finding the damn doves without having to go searching all over the place for your hulls as well.

The one thing I've discovered I really like about the M37 is that it throws them right at your feet...unless you're shooting at an upward angle, then it tosses them waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyy out in front of you.

Also if you shoot left handed (my dad is left eye dominant) it keeps the shells from flying in front of your face.

I'm a lefty, and all of my guns are right handed, and I've never had a shell hit my face.

I've never seen a shell hit anyone in the face, I do know several lefties have said it is somewhat distracting to have empty hulls flying through your field of vision though.

Don't most Mossbergs come with a dual extractor? That could explain the difference beyond the two guns being different designs altogether. Never had a problem with the shells in the 870, maybe pump it back harder?

The 870's ejector is dependent on how fast you rack it. The Mossberg uses a blade ejector; which will throw shells far even with the tiniest movement past the ejector.

And your point?
