June's "Free Gun Friday" is the Mossberg 590M Shotgun! Enter the sweepstakes at the bottom of this article.
The 590M shotguns and magazines are uniquely designed incorporating stabilizing ribs that engage the magazine directly to the receiver for a sure lock-up. The 590M™ Series offers magazine-fed convenience in the legendary Mossberg pump-action tactical platform. For home security, tactical, and competition applications, 590M Mag-Fed pump-actions offer many practical advantages: faster reloading/unloading, increased capacity without additional magazine tube length, and quick and easy transitioning between various types of loads (when using designated magazines).
Full magazines are the center of gravity point, making the 590M shotgun easy to balance for greater accuracy. The 590M is designed around the Mossberg 590,® the choice of tactical users worldwide and time-tested over decades of dependable service. The features Mossberg tactical pump users expect are all there: Dual extractors, Twin action bars, Positive steel-to-steel lockup, Drilled and tapped receiver, Ambidextrous safety, and a Heavy-walled barrel.
The world’s first production double-stack 12GA shotgun magazine offers a shorter magazine length vs. capacity than competitor’s single-stack designs, providing better swing, balance and control.
Magazine construction highlights: Hardened steel feed lips, over-molded steel shell ramps, easy-grip external molded design, proprietary self-lubricating polymer magazine body material, heavy-duty ASTM-A-228 music wire magazine spring, removable floor plate for easy cleaning, and a tough black oxide finish on steel components.
For shooting flexibility, 590M magazines are available in 5, 10, 15, and 20-Round, and are for use with 2.75” shotshells.

How Does “Free Gun Friday” Work?
We’ve partnered with a different manufacturer for every month of 2018.
For the first Friday of every month, we’ll announce the new giveaway gun. On that day, we’ll open up the sweepstakes for readers to enter and win the gun. We’ll also release our first video on the gun, where you can learn about what you’re entering to win.
On the second and third Fridays of each month, we’ll release two more videos showing the gun in action. Our experts have taken it to the range and run it through drills to make sure it’s ready to rock by the time it gets to you.
Which brings us to the last day of the month when the sweepstakes ends. The next day we will select a winner and send out an email notifying the lucky reader.
