    Thought I would start a thread for owners of this specific model

    Mine has an ATI folding stock with pistol grip and 5 shot shell carrier and OD single point sling.

    Sounds like a very capable shotgun.

    My 8-shot 20" is a 590 (not an -A1) so I really can't contribute anything.

    Do I get partial credit?
    I finally ordered a Mossy 500/Mav 88 8 round mag tube for my RIA M5 shotgun. They were in stock and available.

    Example pic of end result.

    No more than any other with a folding stock. If you are referring to the ammo, heck, I don't know and don't care ... what I care about is having enough.

    Can't count, eh?
    10 on the shotgun and folding stock.
    8 in the tube.
    15 on the bandoleer that doubles as a sling to hang the shotgun from by a single point in the side of the folding stock.
    33 total

    Yes, it is heavy. But except when actually mowing down BLM/Antifa anarchists, which is the only reason I have it, because I anticipate violence like we have never before seen after Trump wins the election, all of that weight is on the sling. It will never be used for home defense, because I think it is stupid to let fly with a 12 gauge inside one's home and destroy walls, furniture and whatever else is behind the bad guy unless loaded with ineffective light birdshot. My 380s are perfect for home defense.

    I am proud of the polite discussions we have here.

    What you said was snarky, and deliberately so. I have never seen @Elbert Garrett post in a similar fashion.

    I like what he says in his comments. Not so much some of yours.

    Best,

    I took his "32 shells on board?" comment as snarky. Why else make such a comment of the obvious? If it wasn't meant that way I apologize.

    Try the mini shells. 7 or 8 or 9, not sure. And 7 in the tube and one up the pipe (topped off) is 8.
