Mossberg announced the continuation of its 940 Pro series of shotguns. Building on the popular JM Pro, the series adds Field, Waterfowl and Snow Goose models. The additions bring three serious hunting guns for shotgun shooters.
Mossberg 940 Pro Series Additions
Last year we brought you coverage of the Mossberg 940 JM Pro. Built in partnership with Jerry and Lena Miculek, the JM Pro delivered an out-of-the-box-ready competition shotgun, loaded with high-performance add-ons. Now Mossberg takes that same platform, brining Field, Waterfowl and Snow Goose models into the series.
The 940 Pro series utilizes an improved gas-operating system, running up to 1,500 rounds between cleanings, according to Mossberg. It handles 2 3/4-inch and 3-inch shells. The shotgun features an oversized, beveled loading port with redesigned elevator and shell catch. The design enables efficient, pinch-free loading into the tube. A new barrel-making process maintains point-of-aim and impact. A slim-profile forend pairs with a user-configurable stock delivers a custom length-of-pull, ranging from 13 to 14.25 inches, along with drop and cast. An oversized charging handle and bolt release button improves manual of arms.
The internal components feature a nickel boron coating, including the gas piston/rings, magazine tube, hammer sear, return spring plunger, and return spring tube. The return spring plunger feature hard-anodized aluminum. Combined with chrome-lined barrels and self-draining stocks, the 940 series is built to run.
