Can anyone confirm or deny this?
bolt that replaced one of the pushpins that
held the trigger group, and one of the screws in the receiver.
IMO I don't think the relatively soft aluminium receiver would do well if drilled and tapped in the conventional sense
The 500 and 590 use the same exact material for their receivers and they are drilled and tapped. I haven't had any issues with my 12 gauge 500 or 410 Shockwave with a mount and red dot installed. The main thing is to NOT over-torque the mounting screws and use some type of thread locker.
Thank you for your responses!
Receiver is plenty fine to D&T. My maverick 88 slug gun had been for a few years, and has seen more than double it's value in slugs during that time.
Still pleasantly surprised my Simmons Prodiamond shotgun scope is still doing well lol, still sad they discontinued that line
OP if you don't want to D&T it yourself, I highly recommend taking it to a competent gunsmith. Normally only around 30-75$ plus parts, and done with considerable precision.
not drilled and tapped.
They do make work-arounds that require no modification, but for the price you could likely just have a smith do it for you properly.
