NORTH HAVEN, Conn. -( O.F. Mossberg and Sons, Inc. introduces the 590 Shockwave pump-action firearm with 14-inch barrel, pistol grip and overall length of 26.5 inches.

Classified by the BATFE (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) as a “Non-NFA Firearm,” the 590 Shockwave requires no tax stamp for transfers.

This compact 12-gauge has all of the features of Mossberg’s legendary pump-action platform combined with the latest innovation from Shockwave Technologies, their Raptor pistol grip, and a strapped forend for improved handling.

At the core of the 590 Shockwave is Mossberg’s field-proven design which includes non-binding twin action bars; positive steel-to-steel lock-up; an anti-jam elevator; dual extractors; and Mossberg’s universally-recognized, ambidextrous top-mounted safety.

The durable, yet lightweight receiver is constructed of anodized aluminum and for convenience, the magazine tube features a clean-out cap.

This 12-gauge is 2 ¾ and 3-inch capable with 6-round total capacity and features a 14-inch barrel with bead sight and matte blue finish.

The accessory grip by Shockwave Technologies provides this 590 with its unique moniker. The Shockwave Raptor pistol grip features an enhanced textured finish and has a “bird’s head” shaped-profile, allowing for maximum control while minimizing felt recoil.

The grip is constructed of durable, glass-filled polymer with non-reflective, black finish and overall length of 5.25 inches. The cob-styled, tactical forend is strapped for greater control and smoother operation.

Only Mossberg, a leader in the firearms industry and the world’s largest pump-action shotgun manufacturer, can offer a MilSpec 3443-approved pump-action platform (the only shotgun manufacturer to pass these endurance, accuracy and quality tests) in a 14-inch barreled non-NFA firearm.

Disclaimer: Although the Mossberg 590 Shockwave is classified as a “firearm” under the Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA), and is not subject to the provisions of the National Firearms Act (NFA), state and local laws may be more restrictive. Even though, it is legal federally, the 590 Shockwave may be considered a “short-barreled” shotgun or “assault weapon” by certain state and local laws; and therefore illegal to possess. Please check with your local authorities concerning the legality of possessing a firearm of this configuration.

Has a release date been announced?


Looking for information to see if this is California legal.


You’ve got to be kidding.



If you think about it, any dirtbag criminal does not care about laws and buy their guns out of a trunk of a car. Thus, these anti gun laws only hurt law abiding citizens. Mossberg found a way that us good citizens have a fighting chance. As soon as these come out I will certainly get one (maybe 2) to accompany my 500 persuader. I thought hillary was going to win so I stocked up on 30 round mags for my other toys and a 31 round mag for my G17. Trump will not take our guns away. Any gun… Read more »

Damn Right , I Know what to expect from a criminal. Its the rouge, deep state FBI and ATF so called agents that worry me. Arm yourselves People….

Joe Stanton

Damn Right, I know what to expect from a criminal. It is the Men in Black SUVs that you cant trust. Arm yourselves or become property of the State

Chris Mallory

Looks cool and Hollywood, but how practical is it? No way to aim or get a cheek weld, not that you would want one without a stock to help tame the recoil.

John Brown

You shoot it from the hip, dumbass. Go back to shooting ducks you Fudd!

Donny Baker

America. F*ck Yeah!


According to the all knowing, NFA no sholder stock or it becomes a SBS. Why?
Another reason to GUT these idiodic length and stock restrictions of the NFA!!!
And short barreled shotguns DO have sporting purposes. And defensive militia duties……..

Wild Bill

@dj, What you say is exactly right, time to rid ourselves of the National Firearms Act and the Gun Control and the BATFE. The NFA and the GCA have never solved a crime or prevented one. The BATFE has a long history of faking evidence to support convictions and more people control laws. Trump owes us. It is time to push the GOA, NRA, CCKBA, JFPFO and Donald Trump for repeal, repeal, and decommission!

Charles Nehrbass

I assume since it is not considered a shotgun it would fall under it would be considered a pistol?


No, it’s a weapon made from a shotgun.

Devon Fitzer

It is considered a “firearm” not a rifle, pistol, or shotgun. It is over 26″ in length and not meant to be concealed which is what puts it into the “firearm classification and not any of the others.


This would be great if it were a Remington M870P.


… at twice the price!


NFA rule Circular WHAT ARE “FIREARMS” UNDER THE NFA? Chapter 2, 2:1:2

2.1.2 Weapon made from a shotgun. A weapon made from a shotgun is a shotgun type weapon that has an overall length of less than 26 inches or a barrel or barrels of less than 18 inches in length.

That little word ” or ” is what seals it!

Good job Mossberg!

Matt in Oklahoma

Better check your state laws before buying and using



Sam Summey

What makes this shotgun legal when other short barreled shotguns are not? NFA is pretty specific, No shorter barrel than 18 inches with the overall length of 26 inches??? Unless the barrel is rifled at some point it also flunks the North Carolina criterion.


A rifle or shotgun is a firearm which has had a shoulder stock on it at any time in it’s existence. These leave the factory with no stock, this it is not considered a “shotgun”. You cannot legally attach a shoulder stock to this without first switching to a longer barrel. It means one must also be 21 to purchase, as well (same as any other stockless firearm)


Shoulder stock? Why would you want to put a shoulder stock on it anyway? It’s perfect as is!



I am frequently to blogging and i truly appreciate your content. The post has actually peaks my interest. I’m going to bookmark your website and preserve checking for new info.

Come on congress and trump lets dump GCA 68 and nfa 34 ! We have been waiting for our time and it has finally arrived ! Let’s bring freedom back !!!!!!


… And especially the federal MG ban.
I would also mention the federal ban on manufaturing/importatopn of AP bullets.

Captain America

When will they become available and in what gauges? I already like it!!


I own a mossberg 500- great reliable shotgun love the tang safety! Very dependable smooth action shotgun. I just might have to get one of these- lots going for it ,kudos to mossberg! A quality American manufacturer made in America by Americans non NFA ,in a great size platform for vehicle carry (traveling) and home defense.


If the gun is carried concealed it is then considered “any other weapon” buy the BTAF and the user could be charged with possession of an unregistered NFA weapon. It is a great home defense gun but unfortunately won’t make a good truck gun (legally).


Yes please, in 20 ga.


I’m quite certain that this little gem will be a big hit in the PRNJ.

Texas Lawman

Where are the sling swivel studs? Those would be a great addition Mossberg!!!

Jason Schubert

Love the design; love the thumb to the nose to the silliness of NFA. Good job Mossberg!


This fine Mossberg offering is ANOTHER reason to field dress and mostly GUT the Gun Confiscation Act of 1968 and NFA of 1934. I see lots of “sporting purposes”. But no stock attached thereto? Why?
Where’s the crime statistics. Well, Duh…….there ain’t any……. with a speedfeed stock on this darling SBS.
And Thank You, Senator Crapo for introducing the Hearing Protection Act into the Senate yesterday! Our ears Thank You!
