My concern with your post is it would appear to be a blanket statement that Federal law will trump state statutes. My concern is that such thinking might place some of our members in legal jeopardy, those in Texas in particular.

I suggest a wait and see approach (at least for our Texas members) until we can get a definitive answer from the TSRA or the Texas AGs office.
Wouldn't it just be a $5 tax stamp as an AOW at the worse case like the Serbu Super Shorties?

per Serbu's website:
Quote:
The SUPER-SHORTY is based on a Mossberg 500 or Remington 870 (at additional cost) 12-gauge shotgun that came from the factory with a pistol grip. Because of this, the SUPER-SHORTY is considered an AOW (Any Other Weapon) and can be transferred with a $5 stamp!

As I get older, the arthritis in my hand has had a negative effect on my grip. The Magnaporting is a God send.
I saw on Magnaport's website that they wanted like $99.50 + shipping for a single barrel with a single row of 11 ports. I assume that yours cost considerably more than that since you have 18 ports.

Picked mine up yesterday. Shot it today. What a blast! Love it.

This is one serious destructive device.

Informational only: mine came with a sling stud installed in the bird's head grip.

Rather than get into the time and expense of porting, I experimented with different loads (not difficult with 12 ga.!) and came up with the Hornady's TAP (Tactical Application Police) round. 8 pellets/00 buck at a milder 1100fps. The difference is the load does not expand at the accepted 1 inch spread per yard. At 5 and 10 yards: one hole. That's it. Also very controllable, much more so than the reduced recoil R-P and W-W loads. It's not a slug load. Worth a try.

P.S. The SW is still hard to come by here in the valley: $499 at my LGS. FWIW, he had one with a matte nickel receiver. Very attractive.

^^^^what he said! Yes, it is to protect the hand from the muzzle. I understand that horizontal slit at the bottom of the guard is to provide a forward installation point for a sling.

Since this didn't get any traction earlier......

What are the differences/similarities between the Shockwave and the Asylum Weaponry Gatekeeper?

What makes one different/better than the other?

Looks like a secondary market modified gun that the OEM started making in house, for half the MSRP. Other than "Gatekeeper" scrawled on the side, they appear to be identical.

Further research has yielded this:

Gatekeeper I: uses the Mossberg receiver
Gatekeeper II: uses the Remington receiver

Apparently the I also uses the forend with the nylon strap and the II does not.

If I am not mistaken, the Gatekeeper does not use the genuine Raptor Shockwave grip.

Great little gun.
I have a 12ga Winchester Defender and I put a carbon fiber shield on it control the recoil a little better and stop burning my thumb on the barrel.

Well so far I have fired Federal Classic OOB, Remington Express OB and RWS Brenneke OOB through my Shockwave. The RWS was the most noticable in volume(LOUD) and held a fairly tight pattern at 8-10 yards. The other two just were...well buckshot. The patterns are about fist sized at that distance. I'd be curious to see what 25 yds brings with buckshot and slugs.
I have played with numerous bird shot loads and find them to be uninteresting, but effective if needed. The weapon recoils enough that new shooters can be very intimidated very quickly. I would advise some 1oz or less loads for the newer folks. I have found the gun doesn't take kindly to poor recoil management. The stock plug popped out, the magazine cap unscrewed, and the magazine spring keeper popped out of the tube after two rounds. Thankfully I observed this before any damage occurred to gun or shooter.
It's kind of a neat little gizmo that I mainly keep tube loaded only after I found that its small size when slung left me to forget about it. Somehow I managed to find the safety disengaged when I unslung the gun later. I have been trying to reproduce this without success, but I believe it occurred when riding on a lawnmower.
