SHOT Show 2017: Mossberg 590 Shockwave

posted on January 17, 2017

Classified as a fully compliant firearm by the BATFE, the new 14" barrel Mossberg 590 Shockwave pump-action 12-gauge does not require a tax stamp for transfers. With an overall length of 26.37" and cylinder bore barrel, the Shockwave provides a 5+1 round capacity using 2 3/4" shotgun shells. Installing an inexpensive aftermarket rubber feed gate attachment allows this 590 to reliably feed Aguila Mini Shells, for a total capacity of nine rounds. Thanks to the fore-end handstrap and the angle of the Shockwave Raptor birdshead grip, recoil is much easier to manage than one might expect. Other features include a matte blue finish, bead front sight, top-mounted safety switch and an easy clean-out tube magazine cap. MSRP: Approx. $450

Watch the video as American Rifleman's Joe Kurtenbach fires the gun at SHOT Show's 2017 Media Day at the Range.
