I wouldn't put it past this state to make these specifically prohibited.

Actually, GAT among others were waiting for Illinois State Police to make a determination whether these are "legal" to own in Illinois.  When the ISP sent a letter saying they are, the dealers went ahead with sales.

The real question is, why does the ISP have the power to determine what is clearly within the powers of the Legislative Branch?

Perhaps  a question for another day.


Winter may change to summer, but the silly season goes on and on...

I think it's on Mossberg website.

There is a Federal letter, but did not see an IL one

https://www.mossberg.../590-shockwave/

..."Classification of the 590 Shockwave

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives has confirmed the 590 Shockwave as a firearm per the Gun Control Act (GCA), but not a Class 3/NFA firearm. Click here to read a copy of the letter from the BATFE regarding federal classification of the Shockwave, dated 3/2/2017).

NOTE: This letter only speaks to its FEDERAL status. There could be local/state laws that prohibit the sale of this gun in your state. Consult your State Police for clarification. Just as with any other pistol grip firearm, the buyer must be 21 years of age, and be a resident of the state where s/he is purchasing it."...
