The two guns are identical with two exceptions:

1) a heavier barrel on the 590A1

2) a metal trigger guard on most (but not all) 590A1s.

Do you require the extra weight of the 590A1? Do you need a 20" barrel? Will you practice more with one or the other? The BG will not know the difference and either is suitable for 3-gun matches.
