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.

I have no desire to own one. Just had the opportunity to handle one, so I did.

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.
