Brace Yourself for the Mossberg 590M Shockwave

This mag-fed, pump-action 12-gauge is calling you.

Mossberg's new pump-action, mag-fed 12-gauge is the real deal. With a raptor-style pistol grip, the 590M Shockwave will remind you of how fun and practical a pump-action shotgun can be. And, with an 11-round (10+1) capacity, home-defense just got a whole lot better; even practice targets will shudder.

Even with a black synthetic stock and simple bead sight, this shotgun looks to be very versatile. It even features an ambidextrous magazine release button for easy unloading and reloading. So, it doesn't matter if you're a righty or a left!

The heavy-walled, 15-inch barrel has a cylinder-bore choke with a 2-3/4-inch chamber, and the whole thing weighs only 6 1/2 pounds!

Buyers should also note that the BATFE classifies the 590M Shockwave as a "non-NFA" firearm, meaning it doesn't require a tax stamp for transfers.

At $721, it should be a hit.

All in all, this shotgun's overall length of 27 1/2 inches should make it easy to handle.

"The Shockwave Raptor bird's head pistol grip is uniquely shaped to minimize felt recoil," the venerable Connecticut-based company notes in the product description. "Includes all the features that have made Mossberg pump-actions the choice for millions worldwide: ambidextrous safety, dual extractors, positive steel-to-steel lockup, twin-action bars, and a smooth-operating anti-jam elevator."

The 590M design also features a patented double-stack magazine.

Get in line because here is a home-defense firearm that's just waiting for you.
