I really like this shotgun. It is the perfect size - easy to maneuver & easy to hit the target.
I was delighted with my purchase, everything went smooth and I would definitely recommend others to shop here. AAAA++++++
This compact shotgun packs a ton of power and is an excellent gun for home defense.
I bought this for myself and I do love it. It’s a fun range gun. Eats anything and loves it. There are a ton of aftermarket goodies you can get. The gun works very well. That being said I ordered this at the wrong time but the price was so good I couldn’t wait. Delivery took forever, it’s okay I was warned it would at the time I ordered.
When it arrived at my ffl I was so excited that even though the finish had some wear already brand new out of the box and the screw head on the safety was stripped. I didn’t want to bother sending it back. I extracted the bad screw, no big deal since I wanted an aftermarket safety switch anyways, and I have since had the gun parkerized to fix my issues with the finish. All in all an incredible deal on a very fun firearm.
First thing I got was an opsmol which allows the gun to reliably cycle the 1.75 shells. Best 15 bucks I ever spent.
I ordered this and the process including shipping took two weeks. I will not order from this company again.
Great thing about this Shotgun is that it's not actually classified as a shotgun so there's no extra fees or paperwork associated with purchasing it. A lot less recoil than I expected, also kicked more like a pistol than a shotgun. With my experience a shotgun kicks backward where as a pistol kicks upward.
I recommend getting some grip tape for the handle or a pistol brace for it. Fun gun to shoot definitely draws a crowd at the range.
Received new Mossberg 12ga Shockwave in just a few days! Great shotgun and easy transaction! Thanks, SOSS!
This gun is just incredibly fun to shoot! Definitely has a kick! Wife loves it too. Easy to use, put about 50 shells through it no problem! Definitely worth the buy and would recommend. I let everyone know where to buy, Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore.
Ok, have had my Shockwave for a few months now and was finally able to hit the range and check it out. First off I am a small guy 5-4 140lbs You get the picture, anyway I was pretty hesitant at first to shoot it but after watching many videos and Mr 45 I felt pretty confident. BANG! Ok not as bad as I thought at all and before long I was loading it up and emptying the “Firearm” repeatedly . Did not really concentrate on pattering it this trip, maybe next time. This was a get to know you session and it was a BLAST literally. Whether home defense or just a fun range firearm, I highly recommend!
Great firearm for the money. It shoots well with some practice. I actually have a red dot on mine and I've fired several hundred rounds of slugs and 00 Buck through it. You need to square up to the target and control the gun. Don't let it control you. Never even came close to getting hit in the face with the grip. The recoil isn't gentle, but it is completely manageable. It serves a purpose for non sbs states, close range, and just general fun at the range.
As for the finish, it's phosphated and is to be expected from an inferior finish compared to modern finishes. It's a 300 dollar gun though and was not meant to be a beauty queen. I don't see the point in complaining about scratched finish on a Mossberg 590. The thing is based on a mil-spec design. It will work when you need it to. Finish on mil-spec AR barrels/bolt carrier groups isn't any better. If they made a Nitrided version it would do wonders for the action though. It's gritty at first but once used/broken in it becomes buttery smooth.
The ergonomics on the Mossberg are better than the Remington in this set up. If a pistol grip/brace is added the Remington has better controls. I'm keeping this stockless/braceless for now.
I love this thing! I put the adapter in it so I can shoot mini shells. It’s lots of fun and easy to store for truck protection.
Even shooting from the hip is miserable with this! The action felt cheap, gritty, and flimsy. Honestly: The old Ithaca 12 & 14 LEO SBSs run rings around this any other weapon. Unless you have a big knurled cedar root burl to dig into your hip, that plastic pseudo pistolish grip thing is just awful. Give me a stock, so I can shoulder it, PLEASE, and I will cheerfully send the forms and tax money to the ATFE, for an SBS!! This is right up there with Hold my beer Jim Bob, while I shoots my Taurus Judge, at that thar stray cat! stupid. Thankfully, these are still stoopid popular enough, that reselling it was not at all a problem! I bought an old Ithaca 37 pre 1975 with the double sears, so I can hold the trigger back, and pump out the lead, as fast as I can pump. Again, very cool, but probably not 100% practical, in all situations. I am sure there is a very good reason double sears were removed from such guns. At least the Model 37 has a stock! These 26 inch any other weapon 12 gauges are, just not very practical for my needs, and the quality was somewhat disappointing, to say the least. Sorry, I grew up with Browning Superposes, and Remington 1100s. I can start to see why Dad really hated Mossbergs. I still like their 500 Marine versions, though! The eels heals are still the Winchester Model 21s, or a matched set of Purdys.
This things so cheaply made. The tube was scratched just from initially cycling the weapon. Lube the hell out of it, it really needs it. Anyone want to buy it
As always, SOSS shipped this item quickly and it arrived in perfect condition.
To begin my day at the range, I loaded up 5 2.75" shells of #7 bird shot from Federal. I thought I had a firm grip on the shotgun, got a good sight picture and squeezed the trigger until I heard a boom. My weak hand was immediately jerked off of the fore-end and the recoil made my right hand slide forward on the raptor grip until it stopped on the sharp safety lever. That may have been the most painful experience I have ever had shooting some el cheapo Federal bird shot. Determined not to look bad in front of my wife, I racked the shotgun and loaded the next shell into the chamber. This time I had a much firmer grip on the shotgun and was prepared for the concussion that was about to erupt from the 14 barreled blaster in my hands. The next 24 shots were not bad at all, although I wouldn't want to shoot skeet all day with the Shockwave.
After I had a good idea of what bird shot felt like, I loaded up 5 rounds of Winchester Super X 2.75" 00 buckshot. I prepared myself for a massive explosion and more pain while I gingerly squeezed the trigger. This is where the Shockwave surprised me. The recoil from the buckshot was not much worse than the bird shot. Again, I wouldn't want to shoot it all day but a couple shells into some dirt bags who just kicked in my door would be more than manageable. I fired a total of 30 rounds through my Mossberg 590 Shockwave today, and am very happy with it. I had 1 malfunction where the extractors ripped the rim of the shell off without pulling it out of the chamber. I contributed this to the 5 year old shell and not the shotgun as the rest of the ammo worked perfectly.
If you are in the market for your first shotgun, this is definitely not a good gun for you. The recoil is massive compared to my Mossberg 500 and an inexperienced shooter could easily lose a hand or several fingers by not properly handling the firearm. If you have some time behind a shotgun and recognize the drawbacks of a short barreled firearm that cannot be shouldered, then take a look at the Shockwave. I think you will be happy with your purchase.
So, I knew when I first saw it I was going to get it. First
thing I did before I even shot it was put some talon grips on it because I knew
this was something that was going to require a good grip boy am I glad I did
that. it kicks. It’s what 12 gauges do. I knew that going in. It does take a
little getting used to, but after you get it down this thing is a beast and
whatever you do, don’t let anyone tell you it has to be fired from the hip. You
can look over the top of the bead sight without having it so close that you
knock your front teeth out. Just hold on to it with a nice firm grip and you
will be fine. We shot over a hundred federal slugs through it with no pain
afterward whatsoever it was my friend’s first time shooting any 12 gauge before. He was absolutely amazed. He told me we didn’t bring enough ammo that day, so
take from that what you will there’s a little curve to learning it, but I would
say after that it would be one hell of a home defense gun.
