+1 to that. I have a Norinco 982 and it's nice. I doubt anyone putting down the Protector has even held one. I have not held a 590A1, but the 88 and 500 feel dinky compared to the Winchester 1300 and definitely the Remington 870. (In my opinion)Mossbergs are cut corner guns. Even the plastic is rough. Check out an 88 safety. I've seen nicer on $30 BB guns.
