Mossberg Shockwave with Pistol Brace Legal

| 0

We do not recommend changing the pins in any way. Can a pad be inserted into the buffer hole that also has a thin protective band around the back of the blade, and is it still considered a gun and not an SBR? TIA With a 14-inch barrel and an overall length of just over 26 inches, many wonder if this is a short-barreled shotgun in the NFA sense? To answer the question of the legality of this weapon, we must look at the federal definition of a short-barreled shotgun. I have an HK 416 .22 pistol and I want to attach the Shockwave 2.0 blade and buffer tube to it. As long as I am under the 13.5″ measurement of the face, if the trigger at the end of the blade, I am legally able to shoulder it? The Shockwave is the newest member of the Mossberg family. It is based on their popular 590 platform and features a 14-inch barrel and an innovative grip that allows the user to hold the gun like a traditional shotgun. That`s just over 26 inches in total length. Pistol-gripped shotguns have long been reprimanded for their dangerous recoil and inaccuracy. Without a shoulder rest to absorb recoil and stabilize the target, pistol grips were not a popular option. But the Shockwave`s handle has a similar shape to a conventional handle, where your hand rests on the handle and not behind.

The angle of the handle makes shooters rave about ease of use and the short barrel makes this item ideal for trucks or home defense. Direct link to letter: shockwavetechnologies.com/site/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/ATF-approval-letter-31OCT17.pdf I don`t see anywhere on the ATF papers about the shockwave shotgun. Am I missing something? In a letter to Mossberg, the ATF explains that this weapon does not require registration with the ATF under the NFA. But they don`t explain what “this kind of gun” really is. The ATF only indicates that it is a firearm within the meaning of the Firearms Control Act. Some speculate that, since the ATF does not require registration, this item must be a gun. According to the federal definition, a pistol is “a weapon designed, manufactured and intended to fire a projectile (bullet) from one or more barrels when held in one hand and (a) has one or more chambers forming an integral part of the bore or is permanently aligned with the bore; and (b) a short shaft designed to be grasped with one hand and tilted relative to the line or below the line or bottom of the borehole. 27 CFR § 479.11. This verbose definition basically has two important aspects: designed to be pulled with one hand and a short tree designed to be grasped in one hand. As I understand it, the only pistol struts ever approved by the ATF were the MPX PSB and the discontinued SB-15. SB Tactical had falsely advertised that all other pistol struts were legal. As far as I know, I don`t think you can put any of the above braces on shockwaves without tape, so no, I don`t think there`s a “legal” way to put braces on a shockwave. Does attaching a sports strap or grip strap to any part of the orthosis count as a modification or change of the orthosis? Is the blade legal without the belt, the one I bought at a gun fair didn`t have the belt in the package? I just bought a 10.5-inch barrelled AR15 pistol with a shockwave blade and wanted to make sure it`s legal to shoulder the accessory can`t really find the right answer.

If so, a formal link to the letter can be provided so I can print it. Very few people could imagine shooting with one hand with a 12-gauge shotgun safely. But the Shockwave is not a “shotgun.” The grip is designed to be held in one hand, and while most people would use a second hand to stabilize the weapon, the shock wave can be fired with one hand. I even did it myself. I don`t recommend trying this at home, but it can be done. The handle is definitely designed to be grasped in one hand. So it seems that this gun could be classified as a pistol – a pistol that randomly fires shotgun ammunition. This is a matter of interpretation of the ATF, the big “catch” of what I saw is that pistol struts were approved with AR and AK “guns”, not shockwaves and the like, which is stupid because a gun holder is supposed to stabilize everything with one hand.
