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.)
