Ever since the ground-breaking introduction of the 12-ga. 590 Shockwave at SHOT Show 2017, Mossberg has continued to expand the line-up with a 20-ga. offering and additional 12-ga. models. Now, the company delivers the ultimate lightweight and low-recoiling home-defense platform with the announcement of the 590 Shockwave in .410 bore. This compact firearm features a 14" barrel length, Raptor pistol grip, strapped fore-end, impressive 6-round total capacity and weighs in at a mere 4.24 lbs. 

Built on Mossberg’s proven pump-action design, the gun 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" capable, features a 14" 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 fore-end is strapped for safety, greater control and smoother operation. The grip and fore-end feature a black finish and exposed metalwork has a complementing matte blue finish.

With an overall length of 26.37", 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.
