Just got this today. I went with the regular 590 retrograde. Didn’t think a metal trigger and thicker barrel were worth the few hundred bucks more. YMMV. I’m an 870 armorer and am use to that gun. I have been impressed with the Mossberg so far. Double extractors was a nice surprise. All I’ve done is clean it but, while it is a robust shotgun, I’ll give ease of field stripping to the 870. Taking it to shoot tomorrow.
