My understanding is that it has to meet both the barrel length and overall length limits or its an NFA weapon.
I do agree. But... That's where it gets dicey, if not specific.

If it left the factory as a "shotgun" - with a butt stock - barrel length and overall length matter.
But if it left the factory as a "PGO shotgun" (aka, "firearm"), it is only overall length - and lack of a butt stock - that matters. Even a vertical fore-grip doesn't matter, since it is not a "handgun".

In theory, one could have a 5" barrel on a Mossberg Shockwave if an "arm brace" was installed that was 9" longer than the original 'birds head' grip. (Or any similar "shifting" of dimensions on PGO shotguns.)
Don't even try it. It's even worse than the internet would lead you to believe.
