GUN TESTS GRADE: A
This Shockwave was easy to handle and offered little recoil. Loaded with one of the specialty 410 defense loads, this would make a good home-defense choice.

Note how the strap keeps the user’s hand from being pinched between the forend and receiver. We liked the strap and coarsely ribbed forend of the Mossberg 20 and 410.
The loading port of the 410 Shockwave is similar in size to the 20 gauge variant but the 410 shell is narrow and needs to be aligned with the magazine.
The forend is slightly skinnier than the 20 gauge variant. Though the recoil of the 410 Shockwave did not necessitate a real need for the strap, we grew accustomed to it and relied on it.
