    I got some money together and will fulfill my wish list for my Mossberg 590A1 very shortly. I just got off the phone with Vang Comp and will send my barrel to them tomorrow for the VCS with ports! Also on the list of upgrades is a Magpul AFG2, 3 Gun Gear 5-Shell Side Saddle, UTG Flashlight Ring, and a Limbsaver 10019 Butt Pad.

    The only thing I've done to it at this point is added a Mako foregrip with integrated flashlight holder. After having it on there a while, I decided I didn't like it that much. I'll use the new flashlight ring to relocate my light to one of my side rails on my forend. Here's a photo of it as it is now. Once I get my barrel back from Vang Comp and all of my new accessories, I will post updates...I'm excited, can you tell?

    I still haven't had time to shoot it, which is driving me nuts, but she sure is nice to look at! I added a Limbsaver Recoil Pad, 3 Gun Gear Side Saddle, Magpul AFG2, UTG Flashlight Ring, and, of course, got the VCS with porting from Vang Comp.

    The flashlight sticks out a bit on the side, but it's pretty functional, so I'll keep it like that for now. I may explore other options down the road. I also need some better pics, but this is all I have for now, and I wanted to show it off!

    Haven't been yet...unfortunately. I'll definitely update when I finally get to go shoot!

    Well, after over a month, I FINALLY was able to go shoot. Took it to a buddy's place out in the country yesterday. Didn't have a target, but did the best we could to test it out. Shot a section of 6x6 from about 10 yards with 00 buckshot, and it hit in about a 4" circle. Recoil also was noticeably reduced I'm sure both from the barrel work and the Limbsaver pad. I'm very satisfied! Burglars beware...this bad boy will punch a hole in you!

    Nice mods.

    What you did not like about the Mako foregrip with integrated flashlight holder? I am considering that as an option for my 500.

    Thanks

    Sorry, haven't been on here in a while...

    It's just a personal preference, but it just felt a little awkward to me. I feel like I have more control with the new Magpul AFG2. Aside from that, it is very functional, and it could work great for someone else. I'm kind of a small framed guy, which may be one reason it felt more awkward when there's 8 rounds of 00 buckshot in the tube. It's definitely well made and works well. The only functional issue I had was after a while, the flashlight would move forward, and I would have to loosen, re-adjust, and re-tighten...no biggie though.
