O.F. Mossberg & Sons is bringing the popular Jerry Miculek-inspired 940 JM Pro platform to the hunting market with the introduction of two waterfowl-dedicated 12-gauge semi-automatic shotguns—the 940 Pro Waterfowl and the 940 Pro Snow Goose, featuring Cerakote metal surfaces, chrome-lined barrels, HIVIZ TriComp sights and camo-finished stocks and fore-ends.
Performance-enhancing features of the 940 Pro include a new gas system that will run up to 1,500 rounds before cleaning and will reliably cycle any type of quality commercial factory manufactured 2.75 or 3-inch ammunition. An oversized, beveled loading port with a redesigned elevator and shell catch to allow for efficient and pinch-free loading into the magazine tube; a new barrel-making process helps to maintain point-of-aim and impact; a slim-profile fore-end and user-configurable stock is adjustable for length-of-pull, drop and cast; and oversized charging handle and bolt release button for ease of operation.
The internal components of the 940 Pro—gas piston/rings, magazine tube, hammer sear, return spring plunger and return spring tube—are nickel boron-coated and the return spring plunger is hard-anodized aluminum. Combined with the chrome-lined barrels and self-draining stocks, the 940 autoloaders are designed for corrosion-resistant, reliable functioning.
• 940 Pro Waterfowl: This 12-gauge workhorse features a 28-inch, vent rib barrel equipped with a HIVIZ TriComp fiber-optic front sight, with interchangeable triangular and round LitePipes, and an AccuChoke-compatible X-Factor ported choke tube. Metal surfaces of the receiver and barrel wear a durable Cerakote finish in Patriot Brown, complementing the TrueTimber Prairie-camouflaged stock and fore-end. Additional features include aggressive Mossberg signature texturing on the fore-end and stock, sling swivel studs, a 5-round capacity, a drilled and tapped receiver, and convenient, ambidextrous safety. MSRP: $1,050.
• 940 Pro Snow Goose: With its 28-inch barrel and extended magazine tube, users can load up to 12 rounds of 2.75-inch shells into the tube, plus one in the chamber for a total capacity of 13 rounds. The vent-rib barrel is topped with a HIVIZ TriComp fiber-optic front sight and comes equipped with an extended X-Factor ported choke tube (fully compatible with other AccuChoke tubes; sold separately). For ultimate concealment, the 940 Snow Goose has a Battleship Gray Cerakote finish on the receiver and barrel and the stock, and the fore-end feature TrueTimber Viper Snow camouflage. Additional features include aggressive Mossberg signature texturing on the stock and fore-end, sling swivel studs, a drilled and tapped receiver, and an ambidextrous top-mounted safety. MSRP: $1,120.
