Few firearms took the industry by storm this year, but one that most certainly did was the Mossberg Shockwave and its competitor the Remington Tac-14.
What made these designs so revolutionary is they created a non-NFA, short-barreled scattergun. No paperwork, no registration, no $200 tax stamp.
Mossberg and Remington were able to achieve this by manufacturing what is technically considered a “firearm” and not a shotgun. For more info on how that was accomplished, check out our full review of the Shockwave.
Black Aces Tactical (BAT), which also knows a thing or two about creating non-NFA scatterguns, unveiled last week a Quad Rail and Side Shell holder for the Mossberg 590 Shockwave.
“Given the massive success of the Shockwave, it is only natural that we develop a quality accessory rail that compliments the design and function of the platform,” said Eric Lemoine, president of Black Aces Tactical in a press release.
“But not being satisfied, we have also added in a 5 shot shell holder that is designed to work with the quad rail,” he continued. “We feel that this is the perfect addition to an already wildly popular chassis.”

The Quad Rail allows owners to add on whatever lights, lasers, thingymebobs they deem necessary to round out their pump-gun shortie.
The obvious question is whether BAT is going to give the same makeover to the Remington Tac-14.
“We had a look at the Remington Tac-14, and unfortunately, due to their larger handguard, there’s no place for us to install our clamping system,” said Eric in an email to GunsAmerica.
“We currently don’t have any plans to make it real for that system given that development,” he added.
There will be an initial run of 200 Quad Rails for the Shockwave. They will be priced at $214 and will ship starting Oct. 15, 2017. To order yours today, visit Black Aces Tactical.
