Mossberg, those M6 scouts are overrated and way overpriced.

That's a good Price for the 590 if it's in good shape.

I feel your pain. I have wanted an M6 for a long time but the prices are stupid. Is it 22LR or Hornet? Is it SS or parked? What is its overall condition?
I think it is high no matter the condition but it may be easier to walk away from it if it is in mediocre condition.

Myself I would get the M6 Scout, because I never see them for sale, and always wanted one.

Depends on what you already have. If you don't have real shotgun, or want a better one get the 590. If either one is going to be a novelty for you then the M6 is more rare, and more novel.

That's a great price for a 590 around here.

This one is in a little town called Aransas Pass, the one next weekend is in Corpus Christi.
Think I am going to get the contact info from the 2 sellers, check out the CC show for like or better deals. Then if nothing at that show contact them for the weapons.
