With the launch of its innovative, 2018 Golden Bullseye-winning Shockwave platform, Mossberg sparked a movement of similarly styled guns. Initially, the platform debuted in a 12-gauge variant, with a 20-gauge model following shortly. The launch of the company's new .410-bore Shockwave rounds out the lineup, giving consumers an easy-handling, low-recoiling, compact platform for home defense.

The Mossberg Shockwave .410-bore, externally, features many of the same construction and design elements of the company's other models. The firearm features a 14-inch heavy-walled barrel completed with a cylinder-bore choke. At the opposite end of the receiver, a Shockwave Raptor grip completes the package, bringing the gun to an overall length of 26.37 inches. This overall length, combined with the fact that the Shockwave was never designed to be fired from the shoulder, enables this firearm to be sold without NFA regulation.

Each .410-bore Mossberg Shockwave is built with a 3-inch chamber and has a magazine capacity of six rounds. The gun is equipped with a standard brass-bead front sight, corn-cob fore-end complete with a strap to keep users' support hand secured firmly to the gun during recoil. The barrel and receiver feature a matte-blue finish, while the Shockwave grip and fore-end are molded from black synthetic material. Each .410-bore Shockwave weights in at 4.24 pounds.

Now that three models of the Mossberg Shockwave are on the market, consumers can choose the model that best fits their needs and capabilities. The 410-bore model is especially welcome to recoil-sensitive shooters, who prefer a personal-defense platform that doesn't batter them with recoil like larger-gauge models.

The suggested retail price on the Mossberg 590 Shockwave chambered in .410-bore is $455. Read more benefits of the innovative Shockwave firearm in our review of the company's initial 12-gauge model launched in 2017.

Comfort is a big part of daily carry, and it should be. If packing your favorite handgun feels like you are smuggling a shoebox (or an angry hedgehog), then you will squirm, shift and give away the fact that you are carrying. Hot weather makes it even worse, as light clothing offers less in the way of concealment. When EDC becomes too much of a hassle, some just leave it at home.
