I remember when I first bought it, it was super light. It had one of those cheap 1-piece forends, but I replaced it with an actual slide action tube, and houge forend. So is the houge really that much heavier than a standard 500/590 Forend? I'm thinking about making mine a "Cruiser" model, but I also want it to be pretty light. ibBuyARemington870 - I already have one, and that bitch is heavy.
