shotgunNoob Posted February 17, 2009 Share Posted February 17, 2009 (edited) Im in the market for a second pump shotgun (I currently own a Benelli SNT) and am having a tough time deciding between the following: Benelli SNT (yes, another one) -or- Mossberg 590 Special Purpose - 9 shot (model 51663 which, as I understand, is essentially a 590A1 being sold/marked as "civilian.") As much as I love the Benelli SNT, Im somewhat leaning towards the Mossy (51663) due to the generous mag capacity and heavier duty barrel/trigger assembly vs other "civilian" Mossbergs. Not to mention, I also am considering the fact that this shotgun will be far easier (and less expensive) to accessorize vs the Benelli. Now, keep in mind, Im not suggesting this Mossberg trumps a Benelli SNT in terms of overall quality. Im just wondering if it may trump the Benelli in terms of overall practicality. After all, I already own a Benelli...should I really buy yet another one? Any thoughts are welcome; if you have had any experience with this particular 590, your thoughts are more than welcome. I have tried posing this question at other forums, but mainly received responses such as "forget these two shotguns and buy an 870 instead".
