Are you looking for an affordable yet reliable semi-loading competition shotgun? Then check out Mossberg’s 940 Pro Tactical shotgun.

The leading American firearms manufacturer, Mossberg, released earlier this year the 940 series following its initial debut with the JM Pro Competition at the 2020 Shot Show. With the success of the upgrading and testing, Mossberg soon after unveiled variants, including the Waterfowl, turkey, and of course, the 940 Pro Tactical.

Zooming into the 940, Mossberg engineers design collaborated with champion shooters Jerry and Lena Miculek and used the 930 as its base platform. The Miculek’s, particularly Jerry, has been seen by Mossberg modifying his 930 models, which further sparked the inspiration for the tactical, semi-auto shotgun.

It features a new and improved clean-running gas-vent system that “allows faster, more reliable cycling at much greater cleaning intervals of up to 1,500 rounds,” according to Mossberg. With this, the platform now has “a new piston and sleeve that rides over the magazine tube, ” enabling handlers to clean the gun more efficiently.
