Mossberg 940 Pro Turkey 12-gauge Autoloading Shotgun: First Look

In 2020, Mossberg launched the 940 Pro family of 12-gauge autoloading shotguns with the award-winning 940 JM Pro competition-ready shotgun. Now joining this line of high-performance autoloaders are two 940 Pro Turkey shotguns. These optics-ready packages feature a choice of 24 or 18.5-inch barrel lengths; HIVIZ CompSight fiber optic sight for quick target acquisition; Mossberg X-Factor ported choke tube for improved pattern density; full camo coverage in Mossy Oak Greenleaf for the ultimate in concealment; and a host of premium features and finishes.

At the core of the 940 Pro platform is a durable gas system that can run up to 1,500 rounds before cleaning and is compatible with factory-manufactured 2.75 or 3-inch shells. Performance-driven features include 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, magazine tube, hammer and sear) are nickel boron-coated and the return spring plunger is hard-anodized aluminum. Combined with a self-draining stock, these 940 autoloaders are designed to reliably perform in the harshest of conditions.

940 Pro Turkey 24-inch (85156) – The vent rib AccuChoke-compatible barrel on this 12-gauge turkey-slayer is equipped with a HIVIZ CompSight front fiber optic sight and X-Factor XX-Full ported choke tube (additional choke tubes sold separately). The receiver features cuts that accept low-profile, direct mounting of micro dot sights (Shield RMSc pattern). Completing this 940 Pro package is full coverage with Mossy Oak Greenleaf camo; aggressive Mossberg signature texturing on the forend and stock; sling swivel studs; 5-round capacity; drilled and tapped receiver; and convenient, ambidextrous safety. MSRP:  $1,120


940 Pro Turkey 18.5-inch (85158) – The vent-rib barrel on this compact 12-gauge is topped with a HIVIZ CompSight front fiber optic sight and comes equipped with a ported X-Factor XX-Full choke tube (fully compatible with other AccuChoke tubes; sold separately). The receiver features cuts that accept low-profile, direct mounting of micro dot sights (Shield RMSc pattern) and for maximum concealment, this 940 is fully camouflaged with Mossy Oak’s Greenleaf pattern. Rounding out this 940 Pro Turkey 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. MSRP: $1,120
