The 590A1, which is better, 18.5 or 20 inch barrel, it's the same price for both, both have the speedfeed stock, which one should I get? Thanks for any suggestions. david.

For home defense I'd go with the shorter barrel... makes it easier to get into play in close quarters

How much difference will 1.5 inches make? There must be some other difference. Is the 20 in choked? Somebody said they were.

20"...3 more rounds, longer sight radius if you shoot slugs, a little more range with shot, bayonet lug if you need one. 18.5"...shorter overall length well suited for urban and vehicles. Bradd

I just checked. The 20in does have a modified choke.

I believe the 590 just comes in the 20". The difference between the 500 and the 590 is that the 590 comes with a toothpick lug under the mag tube where you can put an M16 toothpick on.

The 590 comes in a variety of configuations and barrel lengths. see the mossy web site for details. make sure you get the right part number when ordering. I have an 18" Vang Comp mossy. I like it - it is a little faster on the swing for multiple targets (3 gun) due to a 2" shorter barrel and less ammo out at the end of the pipe. Want additional ammo - Vang has a +1 tube extension (for a total of 7 in the weapon), sidesaddle holds 6, speedfeed stock holds 4 - grand total possible with an 18" = 17. If you need more - you need men and weapons. Good luck
