Pump Action Shotgun Disassembly and Reassembly

I completely disassemble and reassemble my Mossberg 590 shotgun. I assume that most pump action shotguns are internally very similar. Although I could be wrong on that. I am very rushed in this video to get in done in 10 minutes. I make a couple of fumbles but, all in all it goes pretty good. I know the quality of the video leaves alot to be desired but, I hope to get better with that. I know alot of people are afraid or intimidated to take down thier shotgun and I hope I show that it is really easy. All you need is a little patience. Mossberg actually recommends you do this every 200 rounds, they also recommend that you take it to a gunsmith to have this done. I show that you can do it yourself and be confident you can. If anyone has any questions about how to do it or let me know if I need to make a better detailed video on it, let me know and I will. Just send questions in PM's and if that don't work we can do it over the phone. I hope that this video helps people take down thier shotgun and feel good about it. I am crazy with my guns, whether I shoot 1 round or 100, I take the gun down completely. I am always cleaning and oiling my guns. I thank all who watch the vid and read this giant paragraph Thanks all and God Bless.

you diassamble those parts.... (^~^)

Author Gable Mullen (1 month)
Sure would be nice if you could show us the inside of the reciever while
your reassembling

Author Max Fountaine (2 months)
Great video.

Author Arariel3 (7 months)
I'm really glad you didn't refilm this. Sure, there were points which were
a little iffy to see, but seriously watching the fumbles were as
educational as a successful run, maybe more.

Author Tim Horn (1 year)
thank you simple sweet and knolgeable not a know it all like few
others agian thanks for sharing your knowlage

Author ChromeFreak123 (3 years)
@krazywabbits Yes, for some reason my shotgun did not have it on and I
bought mine brand new, so they forgot to do that at the factory. I did not
even think about that being an issue when you first started asking my
opinion. Mine works great and have never had an issue shooting a wide
variety of ammo through it. I would hang on to the retainer and go
shooting, if you have no problems like mine, stay that way. If you really
want peace of mind, call Mossberg up and ask them if its ok to remove.

Author Ty Montague (2 years)
Okay figured it out. I own a 590A1 Special Purpose. To pull the trigger
assembly you have to remove the whole stock, including the pistol grip.
Once you do that it works exactly like the 590 in your video. Thanks again
for posting the vid. Super helpful.

Holy crap, lol, long time no see. I hope your doing great brother. Miss you

Author reeseman67 (4 years)
@ChromeFreak123 There is supposed to be a spring metal retainer that you
have to pry out so the spring doesn't fly out when you take off the cap.
Most shotguns I've disassembled with removeable mag tube cap have them.
It's a metal 'cup' shaped exactly like the follower and wedges in to retain
spring. If you bought yours new it should have one, did you buy it used?

Author BigJ782011 (3 years)
@ChromeFreak123 Is there really a mag plug in there that restrict to the
capacity in 590 fresh ot of the box? I plan on getting a 590.

Author ChromeFreak123 (3 years)
@WhiteKestrell I hope this vague answer kinda gives you an idea. A choke
would be used in hunting shotguns say for Geese as an example. The 590 is a
smooth bore shotgun, it has no rifling and no choke. I hope this helps give
you a quick answer but you could get more specifics on different choke
sizes to change the patterns. Thanks for asking, I really appreciate it.
Thank You again. : )

Author ChromeFreak123 (3 years)
@krazywabbits Believe me, they have seen and heard it all. They will fix
the shotgun without to much stress on you, I am pretty sure of that. I am
not saying you did, who knows, it could have been a factory issue to begin
with or where you bought it could have played with it. I am just saying
what I think might be wrong with it but you should be able to remove the
cap easily. Just contact them and let them fix the issue. Let me know how
it goes with them. They are known for good service. : )

The resolution of your footage is great. No graininess. And your speaking
style would do a newscaster credit. So clear. A lot of info packed in a
short amount of time. (If you wanna a good guffaw, check out my rambling on
my uploads) But I felt like the angle of view was too narrow…like I was
wearing blinders. In fairness, you did mention you were trying to fit your
whole presentation into a limited amount of timespan.

Hmmm. I replied but my reply didn't appear. Take II. Removing the handle of
the pistol grip (standard screwdriver, up inside the grip handle) reveals
that the grip housing is one molded piece that slides over the main tube of
the adjustable stock. That seems to be held on by a sort of castle nut.
Seems like removing that is the only way to remove the trigger housing.
Seems harder than it should be. Bet I'm doing something wrong. I'll report
back after I wrestle with it some more.

Author Mofungo (3 years)

Thank You. : )

Author ChromeFreak123 (2 years)
I think they are both fantastic shotguns. I like the Mossberg a little
better but you can not go wrong with either. The Mossberg is easier to
disassemble but not by a lot. I also think the 590 is a bit tougher but all
in all, they are both great pumps. Thanks, it means a lot. : )

Author ChromeFreak123 (4 years)
@sanjuhajinraku I would call Mossberg to confirm that but I am almost
positive they do. Thanks.

Author krazywabbits (3 years)
@Vffr1 Shotguns are easy to clean even without taking them apart. Unless
your dragging them through dirt or mud it should be fine. My dad has had
his shotgun for over 20 years now and he's never taken the thing apart.
Still handles like a champ. Have fun!

Author Josh Buesching (2 years)
Loved the video! What variant is your 590? I love that finish.

Author TheHalifaxd (3 years)
@ChromeFreak123 no problem.the video is very good and concise. i just got
my mossberg 590 mariner and am learning about it. do you know a way to look
up the serial number to find the year of manufacture on these mossbergs?

Author reeseman67 (4 years)
AND THANKS FOR THE HELP! My Winchester 1300 Defender is a BREEZE to take
apart comparitively, even the Moss 930 SPX is 1 of the easiest gas operated
anything to clean/disassemble. But really it's not bad, just the cartridge
stop and cartridge interrupter makes it a 'balancing act', but it's bulit
so tough, you could probably go through 1000-2000 rounds before you started
having it be real 'sluggish' from buildup. It's really the best elevator
design PERIOD! Again, thanks man!

Author ChromeFreak123 (2 years)
No problem brother. as soon as I get that model or one close to it in the
shop, I will make the video for you. : )

Author ChromeFreak123 (4 years)
@wrybreadspread I am sorry about the rushing through everything but at the
time I filmed it, I had 10 minutes. This a video I might go back and
re-shoot. I also wish my editing skills were a lot better, I actually have
no editing skills. lol. I also appreciate the props on how I speak, it
really means a lot to me. I am trying to figure a way to get better angles
and use light to improve quality, I will get there eventually. lol. Thanks
again and please keep it up, I love the helpful criticism.

Author ChromeFreak123 (4 years)
@sanjuhajinraku As far as I know, you can call Mossberg and order a plug
yes. I am almost positive they have them for the 500 series of shotguns.
Enjoy it, it is a great shotgun. Thanks.

Some 25+ years ago I had a Mossberg 500 (I loved that gun!) Not sure why,
but I sold it to a friend of mine just a few years later. Last year, I
finally purchased a replacement Mossberg 590 but I've been skeptical about
taking it apart & cleaning it because I remember it being a pain to
reassemble. Thanks to you, I just took the entire thing apart and it all
went back together like clock work. I really appreciate your video. All the
best and happy trials. Glad you doing better as well. Triple

Author Ty Montague (2 years)
Thanks for doing this vid. Question: I have a pistol grip on my 590 and am
having trouble seeing how the trigger assembly comes out. Do I need to
remove the pistol grip before removing the trigger assembly pin and pulling
out the trigger assembly?

If you have problems, I am a phone call away bro., we will get you through
any issues you may face. thanks. : )
