The Mossberg Shockwave lineup has continued to grow ever since the first model hit shelves in January 2017. In addition to three 12-gauge models and one 20-gauge offering, the series now includes a .410 bore variant for home defense. It boasts a 14-inch barrel; overall length of 26.37 inches; Raptor pistol grip; strapped forend; 6-round capacity; and weighs in at just 4.24 pounds. Best of all, it’s classified by the ATF as a “non-NFA” firearm, meaning there’s no tax stamp required.
Check out the press release below to learn more about this non-NFA gun:
Built on Mossberg’s proven pump-action design, the 590 Shockwave features non-binding twin action bars; positive steel-to-steel lock-up; an anti-jam elevator; dual extractors; and ambidextrous top-mounted safety. The 590 design also includes an anodized aluminum receiver, drilled and tapped for ease of adding optics, and magazine tube with convenient clean-out cap. The 410 bore offering is 2 ½ and 3-inch capable; features a 14-inch heavy-walled, cylinder bore barrel with single bead sight; and sling swivel studs. The Shockwave Raptor pistol grip, constructed of durable polymer, has an enhanced textured finish and “bird’s head” shaped-profile, allowing for greater control while lessening felt recoil. The cob-styled, synthetic forend is strapped for safety, greater control and smoother operation. The grip and forend feature a black finish and exposed metalwork has a complementing matte blue finish.
With an overall length of 26.37 inches, the BATFE (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) has classified this compact 590 Shockwave platform as a “Non-NFA Firearm,” requiring no tax stamp for transfers. Defined as a firearm, not a long gun, Federal Law does require the purchaser of a 590 Shockwave to be 21 years of age.
The Mossberg Shockwave in .410 bore is available at a MSRP of $455. See the specs below.
