    Better late than never I suppose.

    Can a muzzle device be attached for breaching?

    Just asking the question: What did Remington do to make this shotgun not fall under NFA or AOW?

    • Bert says:

      Overall length is above the threshold, right?

    • P.J. says:

      No stock means it’s not a shotgun so it can’t be a short barreled shotgun. The greater than 26″ overall length means it’s not designed to be concealed so it’s not an AOW.

      A bit more explanation here:

    • Due to the specific verbage of the NFA, a shotgun is a firearm chambered for shotshells that fires through a smooth bore, and is designed to be shouldered.

      AOWs are weapons that don’t fall under the purview of what constitutes an SBR, SBS, or pistol, but are still concealable on one’s person i.e. any firearm that doesn’t meet the previously-mentioned classifications, but has an OAL of under 26″. This has extended to include a pistol that has been equipped with a vertical foregrip, because at that point the ATF considers the weapon has been modified so that it requires more than one hand to fire it; pistols are firearms intentionally designed to be fired with one hand.

      Finally, the NFA considers any firearm with a length of 26″ or greater to be too long to be properly concealable, which is where the minimal OAL standard for rifles and shotguns comes from.

      Taking these factors into account, since a ‘shotshell-expelling firearm’ equipped with a Shockwave Raptor grip isn’t designed to be fired from the shoulder, it can’t be a shotgun. And, because it exceeds the minimum 26″ OAL, even with its 14″ barrel, it can’t be considered an AOW either, since at that point it’s not concealable under the purview of the NFA. Therefore, it is classified as a ‘pistol grip firearm’, a weapon that skirts any other classification, but still expels projectiles with explosive force.

    No thanks, Copying mossberg and their safety sucks

  5. Kit Badger says:

    But will it take 3 1/2″ magnums…?

  6. redbeard says:

    This is stupid.

    And I’m totally buying one.

  7. PTMcCain says:

    I grabbed Mosberg’s version….because… ‘Merica!

  8. Unimog says:

    Wait for it….. Someone will write the ATF asking for more clarification.

  9. d says:

    Wait, so the grip puts it over 26″? So you can’t change that out without violating NFA laws?

    Not a deal breaker. Just curious.

    • P.J. says:

      You can if you keep the overall length over 26″. Oh and you can never add a shoulder stock. So you could probably do something like Black Aces did without having their mag conversion.

  10. TomcatTCH says:

    Still waiting for someone to add one of the Knoxx Breacher Grips.

  11. Erik says:

    Masterkey here we come!


    Hmmm…looks like it needs a arm brace to me…

  13. AbnMedOps says:

    Looks a lot like the US Marshal Service’s Wilson Witness Protection shotgun, circa 1989 or so (particularly the grip).

    • Bill says:

      Exactly, when I saw Mossbergs the first thing I thought of was that gun and Miami Vice. Nothing say witness protection like unaimed bursts of 00 Buck!

      Still gonna get one (or two)

  14. Bradkaf308 says:

    One of the few good things about Canadian laws. Just put a butt stock on it no issue. Have fun.

  15. WO1 Rock says:

    Ricardo Tubbs from Miami Vice called, he wants his shotgun back.

  16. Joe says:

    I get aggressive bear on my porch and a fairly regular basis. This looks perfect for my needs. I will get one as soon as possible. Hopefully it has the same smooth action as most 870’s. Gustavus Alaska.

  17. Kevin B says:

    It’s the Shockwave grip that makes it a non SBR or AOW. If it had a pistol grip on it instead of the Shockwave grip then we would be a NFA item.

  18. Todd says:

    Have had the 590 Shockwave for 3 weeks now. LOVE IT! What a blast to shoot!! Just plain fun. Could see it for HD without a doubt. But buy it because its fun and cool.

  19. Steven says:

    Anyone know who is selling them???

  20. Brion Horvath says:

    How do I get my hands on one?
