I'm not a big fan of weapon-mounted lights, but it could be used for this purpose also. I think there are adapters available.
I wouldn't worry about the mount itself being much of a "waste" though. . . I mean, we're talking about a very small protrusion of metal for the bayonet to clip on. I doubt that he average gun owner would even recognize the mount unless you pointed it out to them.
I bought and M8 the same day I got the Mossy...fits it well and makes it an even deadlier weapon...good firearm, knife and bat. You are set at close quarters....only bad thing is the bayonet slug interferes with the sling stud if you have the stud mounted on the mag cap.
The 590 was designed for the Marine Corps, hence, the heavier barrel and bayonet lug. Bayonets aren't of much use in acutal combat, but for crowd control they are amazing. Not many people are willing to impale themselves, so moving crowds around is quite a bit easier with a bayonet.
