North Haven, CT – Following the ground-breaking introduction of the 12-gauge 590 Shockwave in 2017, Mossberg has continued to expand the line-up with a 20-gauge offering and additional 12-gauge models including the 590 JIC® (Just In Case) Shockwave. Now Mossberg 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-inch barrel length; Raptor® pistol grip; strapped forend; impressive 6-round total capacity; and weighs in at a mere 4.24 pounds.
Built on Mossberg’s proven pump-action design, the 590 Shockwave 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-inch capable; features a 14-inch 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 forend is strapped for safety, greater control and smoother operation. The grip and forend feature a black finish and exposed metalwork has a complementing matte blue finish.
With an overall length of 26.37 inches, 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.
Mossberg was the first manufacturer to bring these 14-inch barreled, non-NFA firearms to the marketplace and now offers three 12-gauge models, a 20-gauge option and the new 410 bore from which to choose. For more information on the 590 Shockwave series, please visit www.mossberg.com.
