NORTH HAVEN, CT – Gain a competitive edge with the new line of Mossberg 940 Pro Sporting 12-gauge autoloading shotguns. With their user-adjustable stocks for length-of-pull, cast, and drop; durable soft-shooting gas-operating systems; and design features for speed and accuracy, these 940 Pro shotguns will help you shatter the competition. Available in a full-size model with walnut stock and forend and a shorter Super Bantam synthetic version.

Based on Mossberg’s proven 940 autoloading platform, the 940 Pro Sporting has a gas system that may run up to 1,500 rounds before cleaning and will cycle factory-manufactured 2.75 or 3-inch ammunition, 1 oz or greater. Internal parts (gas piston, magazine tube, hammer, and sear) feature nickel boron-coating and extra finishing for corrosion resistance and reliable performance. And the barrel-making process aligns point-of-aim and point-of-impact for consistency.

For efficiency, the loading port is oversized and beveled; the redesigned elevator and shell catch provide pinch-free loading into the magazine tube; and the anodized follower has an orange finish for ease of visibility. Combined with the oversized, contoured charging handle and paddle-style bolt release, the 940 Pro Sporting is easy to operate even under the pressure of competition.
