Bayonet on a 500/590?

No laughing alowed

So my first post on this forum ( http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=304309) was about a bayonet on an 870. I no longer want one the 870 BUT I would on my 500.

Any info you have would be helpful.

- Thank You

I want to put a spike bayonet on my post 1989 AWB Norinco Chinese SKS, which is very illegal.

I was under the impression that bayonets were illegal period, but I found out they were only on imported guns after 1989, thus the edit.

One on a SKS makes sense, it belongs on there. One on a 500 is ugly, silly, and if you use it on someone the DA is going to have fun w/you.

I don't much care what big city prosecutors think of me but a blade on the end of a HD shotgun is DANGEROUS! I am prepared to expect a little scuffle if there are 2 or more invaders and for the life of me I can't see where the blade could be used well. If you still have ammo... GUT SHOOT THE BASTID! If you don't, flip that black betty and beat the livin' breath outta his skull! Too much rick of you eating your own blade and the "perry/thrust" thing is tuff with a gun as long as a shotgun. If I run out of ammo... (not likely) I am going for either a .22 pistol in one direction or an ol' hickory carbon steel razor sharp kitchen knife with 7+ inches of boo-boo maker!

we had a couple of 590's with bayonet lugs when i was in the army.
they look badazz with a m9 bayonet mounted!

you can buy lugs online at quite a few places, and an m9 bayonet is only $100ish.

You could try fitting one of Tromix's 'shark breaks' to your shotgun. It acts as a muzzle break as well as a sharp point for the end of your shotgun, basically pulling double duty.

Tony makes them almost exclusively for Saiga shotguns, but that doesn't mean you couldn't figure out a way to thread your mossy and attach it.

You should research "stand-off" devices for shotgun barrels and mag tubes. I know Remington makes a barrel w/ an integral stand-off device for the 870....so I'm pretty sure that there's one for the 500/590 too....


Here's one....

The 509 is listed in the 2007 Mossberg buyers guide as available with bayo lugs.

Since my pre-assault weapon ban 590 has a bayonet lug, having the correct bayonet for it only made sense (not that I'd ever try to use it)

No markings on the bayonet, AFAIK it's a USGI M-10

I'm sure you will say that when your holding a shotgun in the trenches wishing you had a few more shots. Brilliant statement.

Sigh....

Here we go again.

A bayonet on a shotgun is good for giggles, and not much more.

Try this, those that think otherwise....

Zero your shotgun with the slug of choice. Of course, you should have already have done this, but you may have been too busy taking pictures and posting them on the Net.

Affix bayonet and use it as bayonets are meant to be used. Say, pitchfork a hay bale a couple times while screaming loudly as you can. Few bayonets ever get used as weapons without major adrenaline surge.

Recheck zero. Cuss.

Shotgun barrels, even the 590s', are made from rather thin steel.

Those of us old enough to recall Nam may also recall the flap when GIs used the early M16s with bayonets and found their zeros had gone to Heck. The needle like barrel on the first M16s is much,much stiffer than all shotgun barrels.

Slomo pics of shotguns being fired reveal the barrels waving like wheat in a windy field when fired.

Bayonets on shotguns are cosmetic only.

You can get an 8+1 590. I have considered the purchase. If those 9 rounds of 32 pellet 00buch don't do the job they can have me. If someone closes unexpectedly they will probably be at my rear or side. In that case a bayonet seems unlikely to be much use and slapping them sill w/ the but stock seems like a better plan. You can get prety good leverage if you are holding the gun to fire and snap the butt stock into someones face correctly.

Last time I was in Spencers at the mall I saw all the items necessary for your conversion I couldn't resist.
