Mossberg adds Shock 'n' Saw, SPX models to Shockwave series (PHOTOS)

Shotgun giant Mossberg has continued to swell the ranks of their 590 Shockwave firearms by announcing two new models this week.

The new players on the roster in the company’s growing line of NFA-compliant “not a shotgun” pump-action firearms are the chainsaw-gripped Shock ‘n’ Saw and the heatshield-equipped SPX.

Both guns are 12 gauge with a 3-inch chamber and have a 14.375-inch heavy-walled cylinder bore barrel with a breacher muzzle. Use of the Shockwave Raptor bird’s head grip is standard across the line to create a gun that remains just a tad over 26-inches in overall length and thus safely above a classification as a short barreled shotgun.

Each of the new models has a 6-shot capacity while the SPX also sports an aluminum side-saddle that carries an extra 7 polymer shell-holders.

The 5.75-pound SPX includes a cob forend with a strap as well as a side saddle for 7 spare hulls and an over-barrel heatshield

MSRP on both of the new models is $560.

News of the additions comes two weeks after Mossberg showed off their new 590 Shockwave Nightstick, which has throwback walnut furniture, a feature slated to hit their 500 Persuader and 590A1s as a Retrograde series in 2019.

Suppressed shotguns?

While Mossberg has let the cat out of the bag on a lot of their new products for 2019 already, there may very well still be something under wraps for SHOT Show in January. Over the past week the company has been extensively teasing images and video of Hushpowers, a line of suppressed shotguns barrels sold in the UK for the past several years– a country where, curiously enough, suppressor regulations are few when compared to the U.S. Does this mean that Mossberg will be bringing the Hush stateside next year? Only time will tell.
