I've never seen these minishells before.  Damned interesting!

 

I learned about them here a few years back I think

I am not sure íf they will feed into an autoloader or pump. I used them in a breach loading double barrel shotgun. I sent Tom the location where there are in Phx. That place I won't buy from again has them (CTD).

AmmoToGo regularly has both buckshot and slugs.

I had a case of the buckshot for years, never had a shotty that would cycle them.  Pretty cool Mossberg addressed the issue, at least with the Shockwave.

I have the 500 cruser. Shooting 3" shells is painfull and kicks hard! Not sure you could hold that thing without the half loads?

Okay, I'm having trouble wrapping my head around how this 590 Shockwave is a non-NFA piece.

IIRC, any shotgun with an overall length of less than 26" OR a barrel of less than 18" in length, as measured from the breech, falls under NFA. SBS = $200 tax stamp and Form 4.

The mag capacity is too large for it to qualify as an AOW. $5 stamp and Form 4.

I trust that Mossberg has done their homework, but the lawyer in me wants to know how this works.

EDIT: The only way I can see (without looking up the NFA right now) is this: Since it leaves the manufacturer with a pistol grip, rather than a shoulder stock, and the capacity is large enough to be a 'firearm,' rather than an AOW, maybe it's one of those "loopholes" the blue-staters are always whining about.

The overall length is 26.37" , it does not have a pistol grip. It weighs 5.25 lbs and has a capacity of 6 rounds.

It certainly looks like a grip on the early pistols. :hornet:

I know it, and it's damn sexy, too.  I bought mine in the MarineCoat flavor, but that's just the receiver. I'm thinking mine might be getting stripped down and Cerakoted...   :laffs:

They did it right.

You know...   I'm already painting on Saturday...  and I got more Cerakote in...  I might give this thing the business...
