Mossberg has released the newest member of its 940 Pro family of 12-gauge shotguns: the optic-ready 940 Pro Tactical 8-shot autoloading shotgun. Based on Mossberg’s cleaner-running and redesigned gas-operating system, the 940 Pro Tactical delivers ease of operation, reliability, adjustability and performance-driven features including optic-ready receiver; oversized controls; M-LOK® compatibility; stock adjustability; and an 18.5-inch barrel with interchangeable choke system.
Like all 940 Pro shotguns, the 940 Pro Tactical has corrosion-resistant internal parts and finishes including nickel boron-coated gas piston, magazine tube, hammer and sear. The durable gas system is compatible with factory-manufactured 2.75 and 3-inch shotshells; provides for faster, more reliable cycling; and can run up to 1,500 rounds between cleaning intervals.
To maximize functionality, the 940 Pro Tactical is loaded with performance-driven features starting with receiver cuts to accept the direct mounting of micro-dot sights (Shield RMSc footprint). Direct mounting of the optic provides for proper eye alignment and quicker target acquisition when shouldering the gun. A cover plate is included for when an optic is not mounted. Receivers are also drilled and tapped for the option of adding rail-mounted optics. The 18.5-inch barrel features a matte finish and is topped with a fiber optic front sight. The barrel is threaded for use with interchangeable AccuChoke™ choke tubes and the gun comes with a Cylinder choke tube. An enlarged and beveled loading port, elongated, pinch-free elevator and bright orange anodized follower were configured for ease of loading. The knurled, extended charging handle and oversized, ergonomic bolt release lever provide for positive manipulation when loading. The extended magazine tube allows for a 7+1 round capacity with 2.75-inch shells and the barrel clamp features a sling swivel stud plus dual-sided M-LOK compatible-slots for the addition of accessories.
Completing the 940 Pro Tactical is a user-adjustable length-of-pull synthetic stock with a range of 12.5 – 14.25 inches and adjustability for drop at comb and cast with the use of incremental stock shims. The synthetic forend has a slim profile; and both stock and forend feature Mossberg’s signature aggressive texturing for a secure grip and black matte finish. A rear sling swivel stud is also installed.
Mossberg set the standard for defensive shotguns with its family of 500®/590®/590A1™ pump-actions and now the optic-ready 940 Pro Tactical autoloader joins the family, loaded with features that enhance its durability, ease of operation and functionality.
