SHOT Show 2023 Picks: Mossberg 940 Pro Tactical Holosun Micro Dot Combo


Mossberg’s new 940 Pro tactical shotguns are duty-ready, whether your duty is keeping the homefront safe or surviving the collapse of Western civilization.

A pair of semi-auto Mossberg 940 Pro shotguns was unveiled at SHOT Show 2023. These are of the tactical variety, with plenty of acumen to cover homeowners in the event of a violent home assault or whatever threat you may face in the uncertain future. The optic-ready 940 Pro Tactical version has a cut receiver for Shield RMSc-footprint reflex-style optics. If you want to affix a rail-mounted optics system, that receiver is drilled and tapped. Both are chambered in 12-gauge, and standard features include 18.5-inch AccuChoke-compatible barrels.

Equipped with Holosun’s HS407K open reflex optic sight, up to 50,000 hours of battery life, a 6-MOA dot, 12 brightness settings, and a Shake Awake feature—convenient for a quick-grab tool in the dead of night.

In what might be described as the ultimate preppers’ ready-to-run rig—or possibly even a duty-capable platform combo for law enforcement agencies—the 940 Pro Tactical Holosun Micro Dot Combo sports a Holosun HS407K open reflex optical sight (Mossberg includes a cover plate if you pass on the optics).

The 940 Pro’s milled receiver places this Holosun reflex sight extremely low, so you get proper cheek weld and sight picture through the sight.

Other features include an enlarged and beveled loading port and an elongated elevator that Mossberg says is “pinch-free.” A bright orange anodized follower makes it easy for someone with fumbly fingers like me to load quickly. The knurled, extended charging handle and oversized, ergonomic bolt release lever give you Arnold Schwarzenegger leverage. The extended magazine tube lets you stuff 7+1 rounds with 2.75-inch shells. The barrel clamp features a sling swivel stud plus dual-sided M-LOK-compatible slots to hang all your favorite force-multiplier gadgets (such as tactical flashlights).
