    After 10 or so rounds the safety on my Mossberg 500 falls into the safe position. Very disconcerting to have nothing happen when I pull the trigger. The safety is the original plastic one. I have tightened it down, but am wondering just exactly how to adjust it, if it can be adjusted.

    I'm sure you'll have a few replys tell you to purchase an aluminum after-market replacement.

    Where can I find the aluminum replacements?

    May as well buy a replacement safety detent spring, detent ball, and safety plate too.
    Get a new safety screw too, these become buggered up when one tries to remove them.
    These can be found in the manufacturers parts listing at Brownells.

    Chances are the detent notch on the plastic safety is worn and this is allowing the safety to move on its own accord.
    An aluminum safety button will stop this from happening.

    Can the 590 safety be used?
