Shockwave Technologies Raptor Grip.
by MadOgre • 11/23/2013 • 0 Comments

This was one of those “What the hell, I’ll try it” sort of things.  With a big “I’m glad I did” sort of results.   I was in the market for a new stock, but not exactly for a pistol grip… so I’d likely have passed this up until our friend Ryan Horst at Tannerman’s Trading Company offered this to me.

This is a synthetic product that is reminiscent of the results of the old school mod of chopping down a standard wood stock.  It’s got that look and feel, but with a better finish.  Compared to some other pistol grip, or Breacher grips out there, this has a better look and feel.  Better in that it looks more traditional.  It is both solid and comfortable and during recoil, it feels more comfortable than most standard pistol grips out there.

Mounted on a standard factory Remington 870 HD model, it helps make for a nice compact Home Defense weapon.  It begs to be used on an SBS or AOW shotgun.  The Raptor Grip is not for everyone.  The purpose is more specifically CQB in tighter areas, or for where you need to transport a potent weapon in as compact a package as possible.  This isn’t for any Duck Commanders out there.

You can see it removes a lot of length from the weapon, while keeping a legal OAL.  Any shorter here and I’d have to be doing some ATF Paperwork.

Available from Shockwave Technologies.  For the Remington 870, NEF and H&R Clones, and IAC Hawk shotguns.   Also available for Mossberg 500 and those related shotguns.

Pics didn't quite show.

Also, prepare for the obligatory screaming about how a stockless shotgun is stupid and wrong. Before anyone brings it up, bear in mind that George didn't say that this was a replacement for all shotgun buttstocks for all purposes.

FWIW, I still can't see the pictures.  All I see is a line of characters. For the first one, I get this:

If I go to the MadOgre page, click the picture, it's listed at this address:

So if I surround that bad boy in image tags, I get this:

They're both reminiscent of the classic "sawed-off shotgun" look.

George is right, it does beg to be short-barreled.  And if you get that shotgun, you have to get the best accessory ever for it: the Andrews Custom Leather firepower rig (http://www.andrewsleather.com/firepower.htm).

Right. That is on my list of things to get. 870 + SBS + that stock.

Now, due to the limited utility of such a rig, it is way far down the list. But it is on it.

Post by: FSCJedi on November 25, 2013, 06:59:21 pm
The reason this Raptor grip came about is because if you put THIS grip on a pistol-grip-only Mossberg (commonly available from the factory) or Remington (rarely available from the factory), and then swap out the barrel for a factory 14" barrel, it is NOT considered an NFA item as long as you don't conceal it on your person.  As in, no $200 tax stamp needed. It's one of those NFA "loopholes" in the wording put out by the ATF.  I'm currently doing this mod on a PGO Mossberg 500 I bought, and have discussed it with ATF agents in our shop.  Trust me, it is legal, but ONLY if the shotgun started life as a Pistol-Grip-Only firearm (which means it is an "other firearm" and not a "shotgun").  With the older Speedfeed grip shown above, the overall length of a shotgun with a 14" barrel is under 26", so doing this build would be either a SBS or an AOW (depending on how it started life).

If you specifically want an 870, have your dealer contact Lew Horton Distributing and see if this PGO Remmy 870 is still available for order.

If it is, just buy that (and make sure the dealer logs the 870 as an "other firearm" in his A&D book and on your 4473), buy the Raptor grip, and then pick up a 14" factory fore end from Remington to swap out.  No tax stamp needed.  All the details are listed on Shockwave's website that George linked to above.

And, actually, since this would be very much a toy gun, a Mossberg might be a nice one to convert. Plus, that tang safety is just made for that kind of grip ... and it's easier to get ...

Hmmm ...

Title: Re: Shockwave Technologies Raptor Grips.
Post by: Coronach on November 26, 2013, 08:36:21 am
And hmm again. Ohio defines any shotgun with a barrel length less than 18" as a dangerous ordnance, and is not legal to possess unless it is registered in the NFA. So, a 14" PGO looks like it is out, but a registered 14" SBS would be OK. Hrmm ... a case of one law's loophole being another law's rope snare. I may be misreading that, but that's what it looks like.

Now ... transfering it as an AOW ... that probably gets around that.

Gun laws make my head hurt.

Huey, the great news is that my shift changed from when we last talked, so we may actually be in the city at the same time.

George, yeah, that's a serious PITA, though. I wonder how cumbersome the NFA process for AOWs is...

Concealed carry of a short barreled shotgun is legal with a LTCF in Pennsylvania. I'm thinking a Mossberg 500 or Rem 870 with this would be perfect. Wouldn't want on a full sized shotgun, but it'd be beautiful on a SBS.

An Andrews Custom Leather firepower rig would be awesome, except for the $500 price tag. Might have to look around.

CT state law states that ANY firearm with a barrel length of less than 12" is considered a pistol. My permit is for pistols and revolvers...

But it might be overshadowed by NFA item rules. Because an SBR is still an SBR as pistols can't have stocks. Seems the verbiage contradicts itself. I'm going to find out though.

I've got a 500 Tactical Cruiser with a Knoxx Breachers grip. I just measured it and from the "590" cap to the rear of the P-grip it's just under 27". Barrel would be 15". Currently, O/A length with the breaching muzzle is just under 30".

I know Mossberg made short barrels for the 5+1 590 before. I think they were 16" but not sure. Gotta look into it.
Title: WTF is up with my Mossberg?
Post by: HiVelSword on December 24, 2013, 10:52:52 am
Compare my pic to FCSJedi's.

From the end cap to the edge of the receiver the length is 14.8" in my pic.

Now I know the barrel length goes about a half inch into the receiver. I know this by looking at his pic and the fact that when I measure my breacher barrel it is exactly 18" to the edge of the receiver but it's 18.5" according to Mossberg. Regardless, 14" from the edge of the receiver doesn't go past my mag cap.

I'm at a loss. How can this be?

I'm starting to think that new 6 shot Mossbergs have a shorter tube. 5+1 for 2.75" shells but only 4+1 for 3". Whereas mine holds 5+1 of either.

It's the only explanation that I can think of. Because clearly FSCJedi's mag tube is shorter than mine.

I put four rounds down range into a tree off my deck tonight. Dead limb removal. It doesn't feel bad at ALL! I think I actually feel more of the recoil in the fore-grip than I do out of the Raptor grip. I plan on doing much more shooting this Saturday when the siblings are up for family Christmas.

My replacement 590 tube for the 14" barrel is definitely shorter than the tube that came on my 18.5" barreled 500. I don't have any 3" shells to see if it holds the same number as the 2-3/4" shells.

Well, that it then. Shorter tube. Willing to bet yours is only 4+1 with 3" shells. No biggie. I still want to do the same as you. How much was your conversion (mag tube/barrel)?

Yup. Mossberg Tactical Cruisers come with P-grip installed. Just need to buy the mag tube and barrel.

Tho part of me wants to get another 500 Cruiser, get a Vang Comp +1 kit for the one I have now making it 7+1, get another Breachers grip for the plain 500 Cruiser as well as the 14" conversion. Then I have two. The 14" will be my NY reload. ;)

You'll likely need a new action bar/fore end set, too. There was a difference in the one I bought (shorter) compared to the original one. You can use the same mag tube cap, mag spring capture, and follower. My mag tube spring that I ordered also APPEARED to be the same as the original, but I swapped it anyway.

NY reload for the win.

I’ve decided that after I pay off the Savage that I need to send to Jesse (as well as a .458 barrel), and after the Glock 29 I will get a standard 500 Cruiser and convert that. I’ll take the Knoxx Breacher off of my Tactical Cruiser, put it on the new 500 and put on a P-grip stock and add a Vang Comp +1 extension to make my Tac Cruiser a 7 shot. That will be my shoulder fire gauge and the 14” cruiser will be its backup.

It’s going to be an awesome 2014! Well, as long as I can fit a .44 mag in there too.  :P

Back on topic, I really need to check with our gun unit detectives and see what their read on state law is, WRT non-NFA "short barreled" shotguns. I love that we have made this whole thing so convoluted that you can try to comply with the law and end up running afoul of another one ...

Got to put a box of shells through my new toy this weekend. Unfortunately it wasn't in any organized fashion. We were shooting at a stump off my back deck, so don't ask for details on patterning. LOL

First, this thing is ridiculously fun to shoot, and it's impossible not to look cool holding it!

Second, recoil isn't as bad as I expected. I actually feel more of it in my front hand (on the fore end) than I do holding the Raptor grip.

Third, shooting it one-handed is POSSIBLE, but not recommended. Not for the reason you might think, though. The recoil isn't awful, but because there's nothing holding the slide forward, and since pulling the trigger unlocks said slide, you end up with a partially racked slide after firing. This didn't cause any malfunctions, and a good solid rack to the rear ejected the spent shells just fine, though.

Fourth, I may look in to doing something to enhance the grippy-ness of the Raptor grip. It's an extremely solid piece of kit, but it's a little smooth under the hand. I haven't decided just what to do yet, though. Maybe I'll Book of Eli it and do a wrap of some sort.

I can off hand my Tac Cruiser as well and the same thing happens. Especially with 3" Black Cloud BB.

BTW, I was looking at the Ergo railed forends for Mossberg. Yup. Two different sizes. One for standard and one for the 14" LE pumps.

I've only fired a few rounds of Birdshot with mine.  I need to take it out and video review it.

  Buy a Mountain bike tire's inner tube, cut it to desired length, take off the grip, slide it down the end where it mates with the receiver, re-attach the grip and you'll be GTG. (Or whatever size inner tube you feel will fit better, it's hard for me to guess from the pics.)
  Way back when, We used to slip 10 speed inner tubes on the butts of the collapsing stocks of our MP5Ns so the hard plastic butts wouldn't slip off our body armor when shouldered.
  I've used inner tubes for various similar uses since (like slipping over the grip frames of HK USPs, S&W MPs & CZ Phantoms to produce a thin non-slip grip surface) works like a charm!

Having some fun with my Get Me Home bag tonight. Threw on the shotty sheath and I LIKE IT! I'm not reaching nearly as far as the picture makes it look. The photographer was sitting down. The shotty grip sits right behind my shoulder and is very quick to grab and easy to pull out. (http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/01/06/mazehugu.jpg)

It's not exactly subtle, but it does seem very functional.

FSC looks like Nightcrawler in Day Z with that rig. ;)

Yeah, it's not subtle at all, but I'm not so worried about that.  Like I said, this is more of my "Get Me Home Bag" than a "Bug Out Bag".  It's my daily back and forth to work bag with extra emergency supplies, basically.  And since I work at a gun shop, I'm not worried about freaking out the boss.  Making him jealous, maybe, but not freaking him out.  LOL.  If I have to take the bag somewhere where a shotgun can't go, I can always leave the shotty in my car.  Same with the Ka-Bar.  And even though the routes I would be taking home (if on foot) include a major Route, it's also a very rural area and quick glances won't necessarily positively identify me as carrying a shotgun.  I can always throw a sock over the grip if need be, too.  Haha

Just say the word and I'll get one started for you.   ;)  Or, and this is probably easier, I can talk to your preferred dealer in your area and explain what he would need to order for you.  If he can't or won't get it, I can always do the work and transfer it down your way.  I think you could get away with this at your place of business, too.  Haha

A "bit" late to this thread - but on the topic of grips, wanted you to be aware that Shockwave has new grips from what is discussed here. These old grips don't have the plug.

Feel free to check out the details on the new grips: https://shockwavetechnologies.com/product-category/grips or there's a blog about Raptor grip colors available here: https://shockwavetechnologies.com/new-raptor-grip-colors
