The latest offering to the tactical shotgun community is finally here from Mossberg. The new Mossberg 940 Pro Tactical is a semi-automatic, optics-ready, gas-operated shotgun that builds on the success of the JM Pro series but adds a few unique features that set it apart from other tactically minded semi-autos currently on the market.
The new 940 Pro Tactical will feature an 18.5″ smoothbore barrel but with a flared front end for the use of chokes which is a unique feature as far as tactical shotguns go. The operating handle and bolt release have been enlarged for easier use with gloves in stressful situations. The 940 Pro Tactical also features an enlarged loading port similar to Mossberg’s competition shotgun that also includes an enhanced lifter that will prevent pinching when double or quad loading shells.
The 940 Pro Tactical also features a freshly redesigned gas system meant to improve both function and ease of maintenance with cleaning intervals as high as 1500 rounds. Other improvements that put this new shotgun in a more tactical role include barrel-mounted forward M-LOK slots for the attachments of lights and lasers.
