Default Cancelled my Pre-Order for the Mossberg 590 Shockwave

Ordered it as a "Pre-Order" 2/08/17 from Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore.

Checked my order status again today and saw "not yet shipped".

I've never been disappointed with any other shipping time with them before but almost 7 weeks?

Emailed and left a voice mail this morning and a nice lady returned my call.

I asked her when they are going to ship my order and she said when they get them.
I asked when they expect to get them in and she had no idea.
So I cancelled the order. She was very nice about it.

I wanted the Shockwave for the "cool factor".
First kid on the block bragging right's kind of thing.

I've had my Mossberg 500 Cruiser for many years.
Never really enjoyed firing it.
So now I'll see how it fires now with the MiniBuck 2 1/4 inch 12 ga shell's I bought for the Shockwave.

Anyone have a Shockwave? If so how do you like it and is it worth the wait?

I hate it your disappointed but if the factory ain't shipping yet then how can they ship it to you? I don't think anyone is shipping them yet so if you are pre ordered you still will be an early owner as soon as Mossberg starts getting them out.

Actually, no it is not the same as what they have been making. There are some minor changes that make it incompatible with butt stocks (that is how it is legal as they are configured).

I see the cool factor, but I can not bring myself to buy one.

Buds is sold out. Seen them on GB for $150.00 more than Sportsmans is selling them for and even handled one at a local gun show that a non vendor was scalping. He wanted $600.00 firm.
Reminds me of when Glock released the 43.

The Mossberg Shockwave is indeed shipping. I handled one on Friday at my local shop. $419 plus tax will be his selling price. I must say, it is a well done package.

HOWEVER, if you have a Mossberg 500 in 12 or 20GA with an 18 inch barrel, you can buy the Shockwave Grip from Amazon for $32 and have a 30 to 32 inch long gun with the exact same grip as the scarce as hens teeth new gun. Yeah, I know, no cool 14 inch barrel, however you do get the great grip. I should know, I put the grip on my M500 with the 18 inch tube and just ordered another Shockwave grip for the wife's 20GA. Photo of grip on my 500 attached.

As others are saying, it isn't the dealer's fault, and probably not even the distributor's fault.

My own opinion is that Mossberg vastly underestimated the demand for the Shockwave. They probably should not have even previewed it at the SHOT show if they weren't prepared to go into full bore production on the thing. So sure, they drummed up business, but now they have a bunch of disenchanted potential buyers like yourself who are fed up with the long wait time.

Mine is still on order with an LGS. Ordered with a deposit on January 27. I haven't even bothered to check on a possible delivery date. Matter of fact, it hadn't even crossed my mind until I saw your thread. I'm not gonna die if it doesn't arrive in another few months.

Shoot, I may end up cancelling the order, who knows. I actually found a nice little Model 36 snubbie for sale locally...

There is one for sale in my neck of the woods as well.

If I wasn't saving my pennies for a house move and new business venture I'd be on this like a fat kid on free fudge.

What's the asking price? SOS had them pre order for
$389.00 shipped.

Maybe I jumped the gun bailing out this morning.

I find them interesting, not sure what my state thinks of them. Wouldn't mind one. Saving up for a copy of the 1887 Winchester lever in 12 gauge, just because I always wanted one.

Right now I have my Stevens 67E which is one of the most pleasant 12 gauges I have ever shot with buckshot. Patterned it recently with cheap 2 3/4" Remington shells at 5, 10, 15 yards and it did pretty good.

I also have a similar Stevens 12 Ga M67, but I cut the barrel to 18-1/2". Not too pretty but plenty good enough for me as a home defense weapon and general purpose fun gun. I've even used it a few times for skeet.

Default M500 18.5 Inch W/Shockwave Grip

Not the best photo I've ever taken, however here is my Mossberg M500 12 GA 5+1 capacity with the factory 18.5 inch cylinder bore barrel, TacStar side saddle, handgaurd and Shockwave Technologies grip.
OAL is 30.75 inches. The new Mossberg Shockwave is 4+1 capacity with a 14 inch barrel and OAL of just under 26 inches.
Since you can buy the grip for $32, is slightly over 4 inches less length and one less round worth a $400 plus new gun? If you don't have a 500, maybe.

Correct me if I'm wrong, or just looking at it wrong, but is the TacStar side saddle not blocking the ejection port?

It's a Mossberg... they will show up. Funny how a new model anything gets introduced at Shot, writers review and get people interested. (That's the point!) Then a bunch of customers show up at their LGC and complain when none are available - patience.... it's a Mossberg and there will be plenty to go around. Getting mad and canceling your order because you can't be first, bothers nobody... but does move others one more place up in line.

The port is on the right hand side of the gun. Stupid me had the photo reversed when I uploaded it and added type. LOL.
Here is the corrected image

I'm not mad at SOS or Mossberg. I knew it would not be shipped out the next day. Even 3-4 weeks would of been OK.

It's like when cops hear a new doughnut shop is opening up and want to be one of the first to try the product and find out only a limited amount are made each day and today ain't their day to get one but see other folks enjoying the tasty creation's.
After 7 or eight weeks of waiting for their turn to get one they kinda figure out it ain't worth the wait.

I'm fond of this short barreled M97. I carried it in my cruiser for a while.

By the time you have a duty-assignment where you need that kind of payload, there are better choices of arms.

For Joe Ordinary, I really can't fathom a situation where Joe would not be better-served with a different weapon.

Lord knows, if you want to wear funny hats, I won't argue against your RIGHT to wear funny hats. That doesn't mean I will sit next to you while you wear it, let alone that I will wear one too.

I have a black shotgun.
Paid $179 for it brand new.
Yeah, its made in China (Norinco "Hawk" brand).
Holds more rounds in the mag tube, and has better sights than the US-made version that costs more than double.

Pretty accurate off the benchrest, but does kick like a 12 gauge off the benchrest. I flung one shot low because I flinched. Salvage target already had a few .30 cal holes. Easy to distinguish from the .69 cal holes. Shot at 50 yards. Point of aim was 6 o'clock on the black.
Good luck with that and the "shockwave" thing.

if i want something i just buy it. thats the only qualification needed. i dont "justify" anything and it doesnt have to make sense to anybody.. or even myself.

no shortage of riot guns and sporting shotguns... so if i decide i want a shockwave i'll have it.

One of my LGS had one in stock as of yesterday at 7pm. It was available for a first come first served.(no price given) As this is the peoples republic of NY, I'm rather surprised it is legal for sale.

I handled one today, as a matter of fact. Neat concept, but I wish the grip had a bit more stippling to it. It's too smooth for my taste.

Well, you could always do the DIY stippling thing, if you really wanted the gun.

I'm quoting myself here because it doesn't look as if I'll be cancelling my own order for a Shockwave...cause someone else bought that nice little Model 36 today before I could get there! I knew I should have gone to the LGS instead of keeping my appointment with my cardiologist!

^^^^what he said. Having lived in NY, seems likely it'll just be a matter of time. SOMEBODY will just have to call and ask, and then it's curtains...

Quoting myself here. (above)

I stopped in to the LGS that I do the lions share of my business today and asked them about that Mossie. Their reply: as of our very firearms orientated lawyer they were told that as far as he can see it might be legal under Fed law but a NO-NO under NY law.

A friend that owns a LGS ordered two for his collection. Shot one of them today. Ran some birdshot and buckshot through it. Worked just fine as you would expect. But the recoil wasn't as bad as I expected. It's definitely a belly gun. Any attempt to shoot it any other way would be foolish IMO. I still ain't buying one.

We shot his Street Sweeper a little too. Other than loading and unloading it, it's a lot of fun to shoot.

I've mentioned I have had one on order since January 28. Gave the LGS $100 cash to order it, and the order price was $449.99. So with tax and stuff, the end price is $495.48, okay?

So every few days or so, I look at the LGS's website. The Shockwave is still a "special order" gun, but now they've upped the retail price to $599.00!

So instead of cancelling my order, I'm just gonna let it come on in, whenever it comes in, and finish buying the thing at the price I contracted for.

I shot my Winchester 1300 Defender with a pistolgrip, once.

(not this one, just something i found online)

Can't say i liked it. Never ever did i put it back on the gun as long as i owned it.

My LGS has his personal Shockwave on display and has sold four at $419 and has orders for several more at the same price. A bigger gun store has theirs on "Sale" for $499. Seems the price and availability of these 590's is all over the place.

Are you close to Eds Guns in Vass. NC?? He had them on his forum for $389.95 on 3/28 in stock. Give him a call.

Probably got 150 rounds of assorted shells through my 14 inch 6 shot Mossberg. Two more of my shooters have theirs and many more rounds through theirs.
The paper work that comes with these guns stays with them at all times. What we noticed is the paperwork is dated October 2015. The paperwork is to Asylum Armory for their Gatekeeper model. Apparently, these folks were turning these things out before Mossberg ever thought of it.
When Mossberg had them at the Shot Show our local dealer said they were told they were covered up with orders.
Asylum Armory offers them with the Remington 870 for the same price. We all chose the Mossberg because you get 6 all up instead of 5. All ours are working perfect and all are riding in our vehicles. Paperwork in the glove box.

Really? I'm about 100 miles from Vass. Just looked at Ed's website...not showing the Shockwave, but I may give 'em a call tomorrow, anyway.

EDIT: I do see them on Ed's forum, though, and yeah, dated March 28.

Thanks for the tip.

Yes, they were. I remember seeing the Gatekeeper and wondering why some mainstream manufacturer or another wasn't making them. I don't think Asylum sold a whole lot of Gatekeepers simply because a lot of potential buyers were leery of them and the possible legal issues that might come up in regards to the gun. That's been put to rest now, though.

Lots of folks talking about how they wouldn't have one, or how impractical they are, and so on and so forth. Whether or not they're practical is immaterial. Mossberg has obviously recognized the "cool factor" and put production of them on the front burner. But as I said somewhere else, I think Mossberg vastly underestimated what the demand for the gun would be.

Only thing I'm curious about is what would law enforcement's reaction be to finding one in a vehicle...paperwork or no paperwork. The Shockwave's major problem will be (in my opinion) that the thing looks illegal at first glance, even though it isn't.

As I posted earlier I have had my Shockwave for a few weeks.I have put a mixed bag of birdshot and buckshot thru it.I have settled on low recoil #4 buck.I trust it enough that I carried it last weekend on a offduty security job.I transported and guarded large amounts of cash at a major event.Did not need to use it but it was the right length to swing in a vehicle.
It provided a little extra piece of mind to me and those I escorted.

Not everything is on his web site. I'm about the same distance from him and have traveled to his store on quite a few occasions. There is a gun show in Charlotte this coming weekend. In the past he has brought guns there for me to pickup with a small deposit. If he has one and it's closer for you have him bring it there for you.

I'll see what happens when I call him. I'll actually be at the gun show...aka the Charlotte Gun and Knife Flea Market... in Charlotte, which I only became aware of today. This is gonna pose something of a dilemma for me, because as much as I want the Mossberg, I'll be at the gun show looking for a specific type of pistol. I won't be able to afford both.

Again, thanks for the tip.

Well, the latest info I have on the Shockwave is from a phone call today to Ed's Gun Shop in Vass, NC. The person I spoke with said he "didn't know" if they had any more Shockwaves in stock because they've "been going out the door by the truck load", and it's hard to track their inventory. I'll take that with a grain of salt.

But Ed's will be at the Charlotte, North Carolina gun "show" this weekend, and if they have any, they'll be for sale there.

I'm not gonna obsess over the Shockwave because I'll be at the show looking for a realistically priced 4-inch 28-2 or an affordable 1911A1. Or maybe a 70 Series Combat Commander in blue. Or perhaps...well, you get the idea. May end up walking out of there with nothing more than a bumper sticker or something, who knows.

To be continued...

So there is a lot of poor information being spread about the shockwave in this article.
They are not specially modified not to take a butt stock. Thanks for that gem of junk SAFireman.
They are a new standard 590 receiver with a pistol grip attached first with an overall length greater than 26" which allows the firearm classification as a non NFA item even with a barrel length under 18".
Buds has oversold the shockwave to the tune of 5-600 reserve orders as of my phone conversation with a supervisor the other day when I asked for a full refund after 30 days with ZERO communication from them. I don't recommend anyone pay someone in full for something that is not in stock at the manufacturer. Avoid internet sellers on this gun.
Mossberg is doing its best to meet the orders and the guns are shipping. I purchased mine about a week ago from a real gun shop. I think it's very handy. I bevelled the loading port, took the creep out of the trigger and applied releasable loctite to the grip screw. I have also removed the forend strap in favor of a full-length sling. I have fired it with everything 2" except slugs as of yet. I enjoy it immensely and find it very fast firing even with hot buckshot loads. I find it convenient for travel and a great deal more useful than a rifle for a vehicle gun as it is easily accessible without taking up a great deal of space. Only thing I would compare to it is a folding stock piston rifle, but the detachable magazine still creates a larger profile. It was worth the wait for me in the end. They are selling like hotcakes so if you want one and you ever put your hand on one at $400 or less...don't walk away. One shop got in five and they were gone inside of 24 hours.

I too received a notice by Outdoorsman's Superstore that the
Mossdberg 590 Shockwave was in stock. I purchased one last
Wednesday, 05/17. Their website said due to the demand,
it will ship in 3 business days. I got a notice from them that
it shipped Monday, 05/22, and I'm expecting it to arrive for
pick up this Friday, 05/26. Looks like they meant what they
said on the shipping.

I'm sorry you got the run around.

Anyone have the itch for one of these around Pittsburgh a local shop shows "in stock". I'd call before you make the trip as they are slow to update their page. About ten guns down the page. $370.00

I am not affiliated in any way with them other than I bought a couple there.
Just a "Public Service Announcement"
