    Good first shotgun? Someone on AR15.com is offering it used for $140 shipped. He rates it at 95%. Good gun? Good buy? Too good to be true?

    Sounds like an ok deal, what will the gun be used for? Home defense, skeet/trap? 28" bbl is a bit to long to be used effectively as a home defense gun. You can get a brand new Remmington 870 with a 28" bbl for around $250 and get an aftermarket 18.5" bbl. Mossberg makes 18.5" barrels for the Rem. 870 that cost less than the ones that Rem. makes.

    Well, the seller may have had a longer barrel put on, but i'm not certain. i don't know all the options the Mossbergs come with. Swapping a barrel on a shotgun is monkey work though, i wouldn't let it bother me.

    You can find new barrels for it in 18"-24" for about $75 or so if you want something more practical for home. Even then, i'd say it sounds like a worthwhile deal.

    590 is a damn good gun. Beat the dog snot out of mine and it never failed me once.
