A unique new firearm in the O.F. Mossberg & Sons stable is the 590 Shockwave, announced at SHOT Show 2017. With this firearm, Mossberg found a way to offer its customers a pump gun with a 14" barrel that can be purchased without the need for a National Firearms Act (NFA) paperwork. The gun’s overall length of 26.37” allows it to be classified by BATFE as a “firearm” per the Gun Control Act (GCA), not a Class 3/NFA firearm. This 12-ga. firearm is a compact design made possible by a partnership with Shockwave Technologies. The latter provides its polymer Raptor Grip, which has a relaxed shape that adds to its usefulness in tight-quarter environments. The Shockwave employs a Model 590 receiver with tang-mounted safety, dual extractors and action bars of its Model 500 predecessor. Additionally, a polymer fore-end with the hand-securing Raptor strap rounds out its features.
