The Mossberg Shockwave’s been a popular choice for home defense and as a truck gun. But the 12 gauge version of the non-NFA firearm, while certainly packing a punch, certainly isn’t anyone’s idea of a gun that’s fun to shoot. Now, though, with an announcement just before NRA, Mossberg’s added a .410 version to the 12 and 20 bores that may be just what the doctor ordered.
A .410 Shockwave gives you Mossy’s venerable 590 receiver design (with the safety right where God intended it) and a six-round capacity. With all of the .410 loads available now, thanks to guns like the Taurus Judge and S&W Governor (think Winchester PDX1 or Federal Premium Personal Defense), there’s a nice selection of effective personal defense ammo to choose from.
Best of all, a .410 probably won’t make you regret your decision to pull the trigger. We hope to get our hands on one soon to confirm that suspicion. Here are the specs:
Capacity: 6 shells
Chamber: 3 inches
Barrel length: 14 inches
Chokes: Cylinder Bore
Length: 26.37 inches
Weight: 4.24 lbs.
