    I wanted a modified choke for clay shooting but my 590a1 only comes with a fixed cylinder choke for HD that cannot be changed without modifying the barrel permanently. I was told that the 835 barrel would fit on a 5+1 18.5 setup so I ordered it. Just came in today and it fit perfectly and came with 3 interchangeable chokes to use when I'm out having fun shooting clays and can put back the original 590a1 stock barrel when I setup for HD purposes.

    What I ordered:
    835[REGISTERED SIGN] Ulti-Mag[REGISTERED SIGN] All Purpose Vent Rib, Ported, Bead Sight, 12 Ga., 28", Accu-Mag Set, Matte Blue, SKU 90831

    Will take it out this weekend and see how it shoots.

    ** the only negative was that the inside of the "new" 835 barrel came with a lot of rust. Took me an hour to clean the best I could with FrogLube. I hope it doesn't mean the barrel is no good. Should I return it and ask for a new barrel?

    Some of the 590 barrels have been coming from the factory with a brownish looking machining oil/grease that can be mistaken for rust. And even if it is rust, as long as you don't have pitting... wipe it down, oil it up... you'll be GTG, I wouldn't worry about if it came off after cleaning ;)

    How much did you end up spending or the 835 barrel if you don't mind me asking... I've been pondering this same set up (of course I'd have to get a 5 shot mag tube as well....)

    I love frog lube....but to clean the rust you need some actual cleaner. Like clp, remoil, or hoppes.....froglube isnt a good cleaner but is great lube rust prevention...

    Interesting. Would that 835 barrel fit on my old (1989) 590 Mariner (8+1) 20" without needing a different mag tube or other mod?

    Sorry Gunny on yours you will need the mag tube also. But with both you're good to go. :)

    I hope it's just brown oil/grease and not rust.

    $178.61 for the barrel on Mossberg Online. It was $30 more when I called Mossberg directly, so I ordered online. I received it 10 days later.

    I'll keep looking for some used ones on gunbroker when they pop up. I'm kicking myself cause I missed one for $85...

    I took the new setup for a test drive and it was perfect. The 835 barrel on the 590a1 body was an excellent setup for clay shooting. Now I'll swap back the barrel and put-on the stock 590a1 barrel for HD use.
