Mossberg recently introduced two waterfowl-dedicated shotguns to their line – 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 forends.
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; oversized, beveled loading port with redesigned elevator and shell catch to allow for efficient and pinch-free loading into the magazine tube; new barrel-making process to maintain point-of-aim and impact; slim-profile forend and user-configurable stock for length-of-pull (13 – 14.25 inches), 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, these 940 autoloaders are designed for corrosion-resistant, reliable functioning.
940 Pro Waterfowl
This 12-gauge workhorse is ready, regardless of the conditions, with its 28-inch, vent rib barrel equipped with a HIVIZ TriComp fiber optic front sight (with interchangeable triangular and round LitePipes) and 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 forend. Completing this performance-driven package is aggressive Mossberg signature texturing on the forend and stock; sling swivel studs; 5-round capacity; drilled and tapped receiver; and convenient, ambidextrous safety. MSRP: $1,050
940 Snow Goose
With its 28-inch barrel and extended magazine tube, you can load up to 12 rounds (2.75-inch shells) into the mag 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 forend feature TrueTimber Viper™ Snow camouflage. Rounding out this shotgun package is aggressive Mossberg signature texturing on the stock and forend; sling swivel studs; drilled and tapped receiver; and top-mounted safety for ease of use by right or left-handed shooters.
