Mossberg’s 930 SPX has been around for some time now, and it has gained quite a following in the 3-Gun world, especially among those who want an American-made, semi-auto shotgun. It has proven to be incredibly reliable, and handles light loads many other semi-autos simply won’t run. There is no need for a gunsmith to drill out gas ports or otherwise alter the system. Because it’s made in America, the SPX does not suffer from the import restrictions of other brands, so altering it is simpler. And finally, because of the Mossberg 590’s popularity, the SPX’s operation is familiar and comfortable to many in law enforcement and the military.

The SPX utilizes a nice set of ghost-ring sights, a rail for mounting red-dot optics and a cylinder bore. The pistol-gripped version comes with a synthetic stock with a length of pull as short as the system allows without significant modifications. A large, knurled bolt handle is supplied along with a checkered bolt release. Chambered for 3-inch shells, the SPX comes with an 18.5-inch barrel and a magazine that can hold seven 2¾-inch shells. Weighing 7.75 pounds empty, the Mossberg 930 SPX is pretty light, and at an MSRP of $883, it is extremely affordable for its kind.

Night-Ops Ready
While the Mossberg 930 SPX is set up well to begin with, it is missing a few things for an actual deployment, which might occur at night, in close quarters or while you’re wearing a plate carrier. With just a few additions, you can turn your SPX into a tactical machine suitable for any mission.
