    I just picked up a Shockwave and want opinions on some of the mods I've been thinking about.
    So I'm definitely gonna do a brace. I think I'm gonna use a mesa tactical LEO adapter,tube,and a shockwave blade or SB tac brace. Unsure of what grip.
    I'm also gonna add a magpul forend.
    New follower, but not sure what brand.
    Mini shell adapter.
    A +1 or 2 mag extension...Maybe on from nordic components?
    GG&G shell carrier.
    Eventually I'd like to add ghost ring sights and a rail for a red dot optic....I'm thinking Van Comp?

    Any thoughts on my build would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the small club!

    • I opted to keep mine w/o brace. For my intended purposes, it's best as is.
    • First change was the Magpul forend, and I love it. I'm currently trying a couple curved grips to attach so as to help keep the slide hand from progressing forward of the business end of the barrel.
    • I installed GG&G follower, red.
    • Like my description for the brace, I haven't considered a tube extension so I cannot offer any input there.
    • Shell carrier, I haven't given that much thought.

    For the magpul forend did you mod the magpul or use the hogue adaptor to get it to fit?

    From GG&G, it arrived with literature stating it was already modified. Simple change, monumental ergo improvement. IMO, just missing a means to stop the hand from creeping forward but I'm working on it...

    I have the Remington Tac 14. I have only added a sidesaddle.

    Next upgrades...

    A follower
    A small optic
    Something for the fore-grip, maybe a strap...

    No change for the grip. This is why I bought it.

    I would have gone Remington, but I got a great deal on the mossy.

    What optic are you thinking about? I'm looking at a Fast fire 3 or maybe a bushnell until I spring for an Eotech.

    I saw those. I just thought that the hogue adaptor may work and save me some cash.

    IMG_9124.jpg I love mine but the recoil is intense with the SB tactical brace. I have an XS big dot front sight and a side saddle installed also.

    My optic choice for this will most likely be a Vortex red dot of some sort.

    Since I will eventually ho Eotech I want to stay cheap. The Bushnell Trs-25 is nice for the price,but the Buris has a 8 moa dot which maybe better?

    I'd like to see your end result strap. For the next trial I reversed (?) a curved foregrip and attached it to the bottom of the Magpul to keep precious fingers where they belong.

    I ordered the magpul forend which I'll mod myself to fit. GG&G rail for an optic ordered with a Bushnell TRS-25. Opsol mini shell adapter is on the way and I picked up 4 boxes of mini shells.
    I still need to order a KAK Blade,KAK shockwave tube,castle nut,pistol grip,and mesa tactical Leo adapter. I'm gonna get 2 followers and see which I like best along with a spring or 2 once I extend the mag tube.
    I'm pretty excited to try the mini shells out.
    I'm hoping to have it mostly built up in the next few or 2.

    I got an integrated light on my forend. I like it pretty good.

    Ordered almost everything today.I didn't order the mag extension yet.The woman is just gonna kill me for dropping so much into this...lol!
    I was supposed to keep it cheap!
    The Opsol mini shell adapter came today. I can now load 8+1 which is nice. The plus 1 extension from Nordic components should allow for 1 or 2 more rounds.
    So far I'm into the build,but there are definitely cheaper ways to go about it. Also an 18+ inch barrel has many more uses. Low power shells and mini shells will be key with the shockwave I think?!

    I love it, controlls are on the pump, it is pretty wide, but not too fat.

    Well after a bit of dremel work I got the magpul forend on. If you go this route don't get the hogue adapter as it won't work. I should have all my other parts on Thursday. The TRS-25 did come in but the mount hasn't yet. I am impressed by it! Its solid and for 55 bucks brand new how can I go wrong?

    Here it is on. I didn't take any pics while I was doing it. I may make something to replace the strap from the old forend that mounts to the magpul? Once I put the brace on I'm gonna mod the old grip. I've also thought about cutting up a magpul stock and seeing what I come up with. 20180605_150224.jpg
