Mossberg has announced three new 12-gauge 590 Shockwave variants for the 2019 model year, which include the 590 Nightstick, 590 Shock ‘N’ Saw and the 590 Shockwave SPX.

Built on Mossberg’s pump-action design, each 590 Shockwave features an overall length of 26.37“; 14” heavy-walled barrel; non-binding twin action bars; positive steel-to-steel lock-up; an anti-jam elevator; dual extractors; and an ambidextrous top-mounted safety. 590 Shockwaves also feature magazine clean-out cap; drilled and tapped anodized aluminum receiver; cylinder bore barrel with a single brass bead sight; and sling swivel studs. Unique to the 590 Shockwave models are a “bird’s head” shaped-profile grip that allows for greater control while lessening felt recoil.

590 Nightstick Non-NFA Pump-Action Firearm Specifications:
A Talo Distributors exclusive, the 590 Nightstick is a 6-shot, 12-gauge firearm with a 14” barrel; black anodized receiver; matte black barrel and magazine tube; and is equipped with a hardwood bird’s head grip and corncob fore-end.




590 Shock ‘N’ Saw Non-NFA Pump-Action Firearm Specifications:
The 590 Shock ‘N’ Saw is a 6-shot, 12-gauge firearm with a 14” barrel featuring a breacher muzzle; black anodized receiver; matte black barrel and magazine tube; Shockwave Technologies Raptor polymer bird’s head grip; aluminum M-LOK-equipped fore-end; and signature Mossberg chainsaw foregrip.





590 Shockwave SPX Non-NFA Pump-Action Firearm Specifications:
The 590 Shockwave SPX is a 6-shot, 12-gauge firearm with a 14” barrel featuring a breacher muzzle; black anodized receiver; matte black barrel and magazine tube; Shockwave Technologies Raptor polymer bird’s head grip; heatshield; aluminum side saddle with 7 polymer shell-holder units, allowing for positioning of extra shells on either side of the receiver; and a top-mounted picatinny rail.




With an overall length of 26.37”, the BATFE (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) has classified the compact 590 Shockwave platform as a “Non-NFA Firearm,” requiring no tax stamp for transfers. It has been classified and is considered a “firearm” under the Gun Control Act of 1968 (“GCA”), but it is not a long gun under GCA, and therefore Federal Law requires the purchaser of a 590 Shockwave to be 21 years of age.
