Well I just bought this gun and brought it home about 2 hours ago. I tried to load it with 2 3/4 shells just for a function test and well the rounds do not feed out. It is as if the spring in the tube is stuck near the end of the tube and it wont come out. I dont really have many tools so if there is a way I can take the spring out with too many tools I would appreciate you telling me about it.

Read the MANUAL , just a hint :thumb: ....................590's are pretty simple , so I'd say your getting a little worked up for nothing .

Go slow , take a break if you get worked up .

Is there a " thingy " at the end of the tube ?? Got a slot in the end ??? You should see this after you remove the cap and barrel ........

OK I removed the spring and it was all messed up and twisted up....i untangled it so to speak put it back in and tried to load it again and it does not work the spring is shot so I viewed the return policy of the store i bought it at and it says they wont accept perishable items, bats (baseball etc) and electronics back...it mentions nothing about firearms so I am gonna try abd return it tomorrow for another one. wish me luck.

man, how the heck could the spring get all screwed up like that? Sounds wierd. Was the gun new, as in out-of-the-box? you said you tried to load 2 3/4" shells, right? if so, it's supposed to take at least 8 of those.

wierd....:xeye:

EDIT: I just got a 590, and took it to the range the next day. shot about 25 shells, no problems.
