Stripping Shotguns

This post at Mr. Completely links to two videos (large and small) from Life, Liberty, Etc. showing how to disassemble a Mossberg 500. My 590 is more stoutly built but is essentially similar. The videos are good, but the resolution on the large video still isn't that hot. When you're taking guns apart, you often have to put parts in very specific places to get them to disassemble. The mossberg in the video looks like a big grainy field of black and I would have a hard time figuring out where those locations were if I didn't already know them.

They have similar videos on their front page and range bag sections which cover field stripping and detailed lower reciever assembly of AR-15s. Those would have been handy to have when I put Mabel together a while back.
