Introducing NEW Raptor Grip Colors

Shockwave’s Raptor™ Grips are Back in Black… and FDE, OD green, and gray. These four colors match the new forends and heat shields, and allow you to customize your firearm to fit your personal style. And we won’t fail to mention that this product has been manufactured by Shockwave Technologies LLC in the USA…. a.k.a. MADE IN AMERICA. None of that foreign crap. That’s just one of the simple ways we like to show our patriotism. 

 

With the enhanced texture of the Raptor™ Grip, you’ve never held onto your firearm with as much confidence and control for both safety and comfort. Its unique angle minimizes felt recoil, allowing for maximum control shot after shot. It’s also constructed with a glass-filled polymer, making it virtually indestructible. Now that’s the kind of quality you can’t get in a foreign product. 

 

Whether you want to call this new style a bird’s head grip, witness protection grip, chicken head grip, border patrol grip, or entry-style grip… it’s really just one badass grip made for a badass gun owner.

 

These are the Raptor™ Grips on the Remington TAC-14, Remington v3 TAC-13 and Mossberg 590 Shockwave line for home and personal defense.

Why are ergonomics important in firearm design?

 

If you’ve never thought about what ergonomics are or why they’re important, I’m about to change your perspective on gun purchasing forever.

 

While most people think of ergonomics in the workplace, they also matter to products we love to use — like firearms. In the firearms world, a product that’s ergonomic means it’s been designed to fit the user in a safer, more comfortable, and more practical way. 

 

Why is that important? Because, believe it or not, ergonomics affect your entire body. When shooting a gun, you hold your body and arms in a specific position to have proper sight/picture alignment, firearm control, and recoil management. However slight, poor ergonomics of a firearm can have a significant impact on your musculoskeletal system, which controls your muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. If you go to the shooting range often or spend a good chunk of time doing target practice, a gun without good ergonomic design can cause muscle stress, fatigue, discomfort, pain, or even injury. 

 

Shockwave’s Raptor™ Grips are specifically designed with ergonomics (and you) in mind. Our grips make it easier for gun owners to use their firearms safely, effectively, and comfortably with decreased risk of musculoskeletal injury. 



Raptor™ Grip vs. pistol grip

 

As you know, the grip is the part of the firearm you grasp with your hand to operate the trigger. Some grips even serve multiple functions, such as stabilizing the gun and providing storage for magazines, bipods, or tools. But some grips are better than others.

 

When it comes to choosing a Raptor™ Grip over a pistol grip, which one do you choose? We may be biased, but we’ll give you the basic breakdown on why the Raptor™ Grip is the best choice.

 

A pistol grip aligns your wrist in a straight up- and down, thumbs-up position, completely perpendicular to the direction of recoil. As a result, the recoil goes straight into your wrist joint—and can hurt like hell when you fire a heavy-recoiling shotgun. 

 

Here’s a video of someone using a pistol grip where you can see how his wrist is perpendicular to the recoil direction. 

 

With the Raptor™ Grip, you hold the grip in a more natural position, with your thumb pointed forward so your wrist is not kinked back into that vertical thumbs-up position. With the Raptor™ Grip, the recoil is transferred along your forearm, through the elbow, into your bicep, and finally into your shoulder and body. You feel much less recoil. And since you just read about the importance of great ergonomic design, this fits the bill perfectly. 

 

Here’s a video of someone using Shockwave’s Raptor™ Grip where you can see how his wrist is forward.

 

When it comes to choosing a grip, this should be your takeaway: due to poor ergonomics,  you are much more likely to do serious damage to your hand and wrist with a pistol-grip shotgun that one outfitted with the Shockwave Raptor™ Grip.

 

Comfort and control are crucial when it comes to handling a firearm to prevent injury. So choose the Raptor™ Grip

 

As seen in..

 

Did you know the Raptor™ Grip has been featured in popular movies?  Because it’s badass.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Raptor Grip

In early 2013, an armorer for the Hand Prop Room in Los Angeles contacted Shockwave. This armorer mentioned they were building some custom props for a Planet of the Apes sequel and wanted to know if we had a Raptor™ Grip for the Remington 870. At the time, we didn’t have any production units for sale, so we sent him a couple of R&D samples taken off of the RTV mold. We occasionally supply Shockwave items to various movie outfits but don’t always hear back. But the Raptor™ Grip R870 was seen on the big screen as the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes movie was released.

John Shaft II Raptor Grip

The Mossberg 590 Shockwave equipped with our Raptor™ grip was seen in the movie John Shaft II, starring Samuel L. Jackson. And what’s more badass than that? Come on.

Buyer Beware: Are You Buying a Real Shockwave Product or a Fake?

Here’s the unfortunate truth: online scams, counterfeits, and con artists have been on a rising rampage — especially during COVID-19. 

 

And this applies to firearm sales, too. 

 

At Shockwave Technologies, we want to ensure our customers are protected from buying into these scams and frauds. We’re proud to have all Shockwave products (truly) made in America and strive to support local businesses every chance we can. But unauthorized fake products coming in from other countries threaten our economy and swindle gun buyers into purchasing low-quality (or illegally made) products without them realizing it. 

 

Let’s take a look at a few steps gun buyers (like yourself) can take to prevent being swindled and combat this “dark side” of purchasing guns and gun parts, both online and in the store. And specifically, how to ensure you’re getting a genuine Shockwave product.

 

Do your due diligence.

 

If you’re buying a true Shockwave product, you’re paying for a top-quality product that is built on ethical standards. Don’t let scammers take advantage of you by taking your hard-earned money and giving you a fake item. And not just fake — a poorly built or illegally-made item, too. So it’s essential to do your due diligence and ensure a product has all the right components of a true Shockwave product. 

 

Let’s take a look at what makes a product fake, why it’s important, and a checklist of things you need to look for.

 

What makes a product fake?

 

Fake products are anything that’s claimed to be something that it’s not, from designer bags to collector items and everything in between. Some gun dealers falsely claim the Chinese-made products they are selling are Shockwave products, made in America, and ATF approved. Genuine Shockwave products are truly made in America and ATF approved.

 

Why does it matter?

 

Think about it — if you pay $100 for a fake product that is normally $200 for the real product (for example), you didn’t save money at all. You just wasted $100 on something that is low quality, likely illegally made, potentially dangerous for you and/or your firearm to use, and won’t give you the product experience you think you’re getting with the real product. Giving even one dollar to a false manufacturer or dealer is supporting their scam and keeping them in business to continue growing and scamming gun buyers with their fake products. 

 

These unethical dealers not only rob ethical, American-made companies from providing the real deal to everyday guy buyers, but they rob their own customers by tricking them to spend their hard-earned money on a counterfeit product. If you’re going to pay hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars for a gun and gun parts, you deserve to get the real deal. 

 

Diligently examine the products you plan to purchase with the intent of finding a red flag. If you don’t find an immediate red flag, follow the checklist below. It’s better to be a skeptic going into purchasing expensive, dangerous products than it is to assume it’s legitimate.

 

How to make sure you’re getting a genuine firearm product:

 

  1. Does the price sound too good to be true? Then it probably is. The price of the gun or gun part should be reasonable and comparable. Huge discounts on high-end products, items that are highly underpriced from the average cost, or advertisements that push a major sense of urgency with a great deal (i.e. “one time only”) tend to be scams and counterfeits. 

  2. Is the dealer reputable and established? Check out their return policies, secure payment options, and make sure you’ll get a descriptive receipt. You can look at their FAQs, policies, and terms of purchase to understand what’s guaranteed. Here’s an example of this information that Shockwave provides. Be skeptical if you read passive words like “probably,” “in the style of,” or “type.” 

  3. Is there a serial number on the gun? Or a patent number on the Shockwave gun part? There should be. If there isn’t one, be skeptical. But how do you know if it’s a bogus number? You can check out Google’s Advanced Patent Search to determine if a patent number is real, and HotGunz to look up a gun’s serial number to determine if it has been stolen or a fake.

  4. Are there multiple photos of the gun? The best sellers and dealers will post multiple photos, including close-ups. Make sure the photos don’t look Photoshopped or altered. 

  5. Is there a detailed description? A complete description that shows all details of the product for sale is important for making sure all information is accurate. 

  6. Is there a secure payment method accepted? Do not use PayPal or a PayPal-affiliated platform, as they have banned firearm sales and will seize your transaction funds if you try to use it. Money orders and checks are a scammer’s preferred way to get paid because it’s untraceable and makes it easy to steal information for identity theft. The best bet is to pay securely via credit card.



Channel your inner detective.

 

Following the provided checklist is an important method to ensure you purchase a genuine product. But let’s walk through a couple actual fake copycats of Shockwave products and show you how to play detective. 

Counterfeit Shockwave Blade

This is a Chinese product that sold lookalike counterfeit items labeled as “Blade” — but don’t worry, we got them shut down. The item claimed to be a Shockwave Blade, but it was a fake. 


Counterfeit Raptor Grip

Counterfeit Raptor Grip

These items are still being sold and marketed as a Raptor grip, but don’t be fooled — this is no raptor grip. It is yet to be determined who is making these but they falsely claim to be a Raptor grip. 

 

They also claim these products are made in America, but that is yet to be determined. These items are counterfeit because they have no plug for the bolt hole and are not made by Shockwave Technologies or used by the Mossberg or Remington firearms.

 

When it comes to our Blades, it is especially important that consumers have a brace that is ATF approved for pistol use. We have found some very interesting ones on the market that are alarmingly fake (and ugly, if we might add).

 

New Shockwave Blades are labeled with our patent number. Grips have the Shockwave Technologies name on it and a plug in the back. 



Contact Shockwave directly to confirm.

 

Contact Shockwave Technologies directly to confirm that the site or product you are buying from is reputable and accurate. It also lets us know who else is out there trying to scam our customers into spending their hard-earned money on fake products. 

 

We continue to work closely with anti-counterfeiting attorneys to protect our customers from being scammed and receiving a low-quality product. We won’t let scammers continue to get away with it as much as we can help it. And you can help by letting us know if you come across a fake product being sold. 




Unfortunately, these scammers and counterfeit dealers are getting smarter every day. Even their packaging can look really similar to Shockwave’s, but it’s not from us. We invite you to help us combat these fake sellers and products by taking the steps we mentioned above, and let us know about it so we can work with our legal team to shut them down and protect our customers. 

 

All of these tips and tricks to ensuring you’re getting a genuine product can be overwhelming, but we are here to help.

Finding Wilson

The search is on for our hardcore fan, help us find Wilson.

It’s amazing how the universe works sometimes. You need a subject for a blog article and someone forwards you this picture.

Like your other ideas even compared to this. LOL Now, while I’m not advocating for our customers to run out and try to one-up each other with the tattoo needle, I do have to say that, at this point, this guy might be our most hardcore fan. Just sayin’. We received this picture from one of our vendors who got it from the tattoo artist that did the work. We’ve asked the sender for contact information for this guy. We’d love to learn more about his tattoo. Including, for example, who is Wilson? Is he Wilson? Is Wilson a relative? Is it for Wilson the volleyball who sailed off alone at the end of Castaway? It doesn’t appear to have anything to do with Wilson Combat, as the receiver is marked with a large Aero Precision-type “A.” Inquiring minds want to know more. At the very least, we would like to send him a Shockwave t-shirt. You know, for those times when he doesn’t want to show off his new ink. A guy needs to represent, ya know.

Shockwave Blade 2M Receives US Patent

Shockwave Blade 2M Patent

Dunedin, FL – On April 23, 2019, the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued US Patent No. D846,685 for the Blade 2M pistol stabilizer. Like the original Blade, the new Blade 2M features a vertical “rudder” that gives gun owners an additional point of contact for stabilizing their firearms.

New with the Blade 2M is that it fits standard mil-spec AR-15 carbine buffer tubes—while enabling the firearms to remain classified as pistols. (The ATF originally approved the Blade 2M with a mil-spec carbine buffer tube in its October 31st, 2017 letter.) A simple lever enables the user to adjust the position of Blade 2M on the buffer tube.

“We couldn’t be more proud, bringing to market a pistol brace that fits a standard carbine buffer tube and adjusts with just a lever—and being recognized by the US Patent Office,” remarked Cynthia Shala, General Manager of Shockwave Technologies LLC.

Let Freedom Ring Out in California

While it is April 1st, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke. Freedom has prevailed for once in California.

As you may have heard, Judge Roger Benitez of the Southern District Court of California has ruled that not only was the recent ban on possession of standard-capacity magazines (magazines holding more than 10 rounds) unconstitutional, but that the original 2000 ban on buying and selling them was, too.

As a result of Judge Benitez’s ruling and the injunction he ordered against the bans, Shockwave Technologies is proud to begin shipping standard-capacity magazines to our customers in California.

Undoubtedly, the gun grabbers will appeal this to the Ninth Circuit Court. But Shockwave stands ready to ship its ZMAGs to Californians as long as we can.
