Hickok45 is at it again, this time with the all-new Mossberg Shockwave firearm, also known as the 590 Shockwave.

Hickok45 Takes on the Mossberg Shockwave

Puns aside the Mossberg’s new 590 has been making “shockwaves” early on, and Hickok45 puts it through its paces. For those unfamiliar with the YouTube channel Hickok45, it’s run by the father-son duo of Greg and John Kinman, who have a serious following and test out just about every major firearm that hits the market.

The 590 Shockwave is classified by BATFE as a “Non-NFA Firearm” and, as such, doesn’t require a tax stamp for transfers. This compact 12-gauge pump-action features a 14-inch barrel with a bead sight; non-binding twin action bars; positive steel-to-steel lock-up; an anti-jam elevator; dual extractors; Mossberg’s ambidextrous top-mounted safety; a durable, lightweight, anodized aluminum receiver; and also Shockwave Technologies’ durable, glass-filled polymer Raptor grip, from which this firearm gets its name. The 590 Shockwave is 2.75- and 3-inch capable with a six-round overall capacity.

We at Athlon Outdoors had the opportunity to check out the Shockwave at SHOT Show 2017. It does not disappoint. For even more info on the Shockwave, please visit
