Fudge the NFA! NEW Mossberg 12 Gauge Shockwaves for 2019


    There is very little we enjoy more than hearing about new firearms around Christmas time. Just be sure to not shoot your eye out! Mossberg has been tinkering around their workshop and they have 3 NEW Shockwave models for us as we near 2019. One is the Nightstick with more classical wood furniture. Another is the Shock ‘N’ Saw which looks like a zombie killer’s wet dream. The last new model is the Shockwave SPX lending similar traits as those found on the full-frame SPX shotguns from Mossberg.

    What all of these models share is the fact that they are built on the 590 design, feature a 26.37″ overall length, and have a bird’s head grip allowing them their special non-NFA classification. Some of the other highlights are as follows:

    • 14″ Heavy-Walled, Cylinder Bore Barrel w/ Single Brass Bead Sight
    • Non-Binding Twin Action Bars
    • Positive Steel-to-Steel Lock-Up
    • Anti-Jam Elevator
    • Dual Extractors
    • Ambidextrous Top-Mounted Safety
    • Convenient Magazine Clean-Out Cap
    • Drilled & Tapped Anodized Aluminum Receiver
    • Sling Swivel Studs

    While there are a slew of overlapping characteristics among these new models there is still quite a bit that differentiates them. Let’s take a look at each new model individually and see which one might tempt your wallet the most.
