Ian, I paid $360, plus I think $25 for the Side Saddle. Keep in mind the Speedfeed stock & Ghost Ring sights are extra...still, I got a good deal on it

Bill, the model 590 holds 9 rounds; 8 in the mag, or 7+1 with 3" Magnums. I've never had a single feed problem, even after several hundred rounds w/o cleaning. Look here for the specs:

And scroll down to the "SPECIAL PURPOSE SHOTGUN - 590® SPECIAL PURPOSE - 9 SHOT".
Mines the item # 50688...
I'd really like to get the thing Vang Comp'd (https://www.vangcomp.com). It'd improve the patterns with buckshot and improve accuracy with slugs. I would NOT however, get the compensator ports on the thing. Magnums bother me about as much as birdshot nowadays...besides, if I get the .458 Lott I want, I need something mild to warm up with
