Shockwave Technologies Raptor Lug and Grip

WLS commentator, Nick Lynch, first showed me this and the next day I ordered a “shotgun” (though not technically a shotgun rather an other by federal law because it came from the factory with a pistol grip) the ST Raptor grip and lug just because of cool factor alone. It came and when I finally got around to doing all the modifications all I could do was giggle at this “thing” I had just assembled. As soon as I got home from work, that day I had to shoot it. I continued to giggle like a school girl every time I pulled the trigger.

The ST parts installed on the Mossberg have worked just as advertised. Cut the barrel off, cut mag tube down, cut magazine spring down, attach the raptor lug, drill the holes and add pi. It was easy and self-explanatory. I did use JB Weld between the barrel and the lug because the barrel moved slightly inside the lug itself.

I’m not completely sure what, if any, use this gun has but it is a pile of fun and looks cool as hell. People at the range kept coming up and asking what the hell we were shooting. If something of this nature appeals to you, by all means, go out and buy one and modify your gun but pay attention to all applicable laws for these devices. You don’t want to make an SBR or an AOW accidentally. Seriously, if you can, build one of these. I don’t know why you are still reading this. Get out of here scrape some pennies together and make one of these.

Git, go, get out of here… statement of compliance: This product was purchased retail. Shockwave Technologies has not paid We Like Shooting or provided any financial compensation for this review.

    In case anyone is late to the party, Mossberg is making a 14″ non NFA 590, calling it the Shockwave.

    I’ll probably get one of these lugs to make a stocked NFA short barrel with one of my several 500s, and just get a new 590 Shockwave at some point future.
