Mossberg Introduces New Shockwave Models for 2019

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.

The 590 Nightstick, a Talo Distributors exclusive, 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. MSRP is $539, but retail prices should provide a welcome savings over buying a standard Shockwave and adding wood furniture from an outfit like Black Aces.

The 590 Shock ‘N’ Saw is another 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 MLOK-equipped forend; and signature Mossberg chainsaw foregrip. MSRP is $560 for this model, which should be popular with shoot-from-the-hip Shockwave enthusiasts.

Rounding out the trio of new Shockwave models, 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. This model is also offered at an MSRP of $560.

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. For more information on the 590 Shockwave series, please visit www.mossberg.com.
