Mossberg expands the 590 Shockwave with three new models.
How has the 590 Shockwave line expanded:
- 590 Nightstick
- 590 Shock ‘N’ Saw
- 590 Shockwave SPX
Mossberg captured smoothbore fans’ attention with the introduction of the 590 Shockwave a little over a year ago. Since then, the company has done it’s best to turn out models of the non-NFA firearm for every occasion. And continue to do so. If the previous iterations of the short scatterguns haven't earned your affection, perhaps one of these three new additions will do the trick.
From the company:
NORTH HAVEN, CT – O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc., a leading American firearms manufacturer announced today the introduction of three (3) new 12-gauge 590® Shockwave variants for the 2019 model year. The new models include the 590 Nightstick, 590 Shock ‘N’ Saw and the 590 Shockwave SPX.
Built on Mossberg’s proven pump-action design, each 590 Shockwave features an overall length of 26.37 inches; 14-inch 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 convenient 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-inch barrel; black anodized receiver; matte black barrel and magazine tube; and is equipped with a hardwood bird’s head grip and corncob forend.
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-inch 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 forend; 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-inch 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 inches, 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.
Mossberg was the first manufacturer to bring these 14-inch barreled, non-NFA firearms to the marketplace and now offers six 12-gauge models, a 20-gauge option and 410 bore from which to choose.
