The Mossberg 940 Pro Tactical is the newest model in the 940 Pro lineup, and it’s now sporting an optics-ready receiver, 7-shot tube and oversized controls.
When Mossberg first launched the 940 series, it was built for competition, even going so far as to take some design pointers from Jerry Miculek during its development. Since then, a few hunting models of the 940 have been released as well, but now Mossberg is taking their most popular autoloader in a more tactical direction. The new Mossberg 940 Pro Tactical comes out of the box with features that make it more ideal for defensive use, including an optics-ready receiver, a 7-shot magazine tube and oversized controls.
Being a 940, the heart of the 940 Pro Tactical is still its gas system. The 940 gas system is not only durable, but fast and reliable too. It can reliably cycle a wide variety of loads without issue and Mossberg claims that it can last up to 1,500 rounds before needing to be cleaned. That’s a lot of trigger time. The 940 Pro Tactical also features corrosion-resistant internal parts for greater durability and an anodized follower for a smoother action.
One of the biggest upgrades on the 940 Pro Tactical is its optics-ready receiver. It has a low-profile cut to allow the direct mounting of RMSc-pattern red dots and has also been drilled and tapped for use with rail-mounted optics. A cover plate is also included for those who plan on sticking with iron sights, which on the 940 Pro Tactical are fiber optic. The barrel has been threaded to accept Mossberg’s Accu-Choke system as well.
Other tactical features on the Mossberg 940 Pro Tactical include an adjustable length of pull buttstock, an enlarged and beveled loading port, oversized controls, an M-LOK compatible barrel clamp and a 7+1 capacity with standard shells. MSRP is $1,120.
