At First Glance: New Mossberg 940 Competition Shotgun

At First Glance: New Mossberg 940 Competition Shotgun

As 3-gun shooters chomp at the bit to get back on the range for their next competition, they might want to use their down time during the COVID-19 shelter-at-home period to check out Mossberg’s new 940 JM Pro shotgun.

Designed in conjunction with champion speed shooter Jerry Miculek, the 940 is a feature-rich shotgun built with the competitive shooter in mind. The gun is said to be a great improvement over its predecessor, the 930 JM Pro, and features a new durable gas system that allows for up to 1,500 rounds between cleaning. The gun’s internal parts are nickel boron coated for smooth operation, and its enlarged, beveled loading part was specifically made for quad-loading.

“We’ve been working together for a couple of years to get this all in one package,” Miculek said.

The 12 gauge wears a 24-inch vent rib barrel with a fiber-optic front sight, and the adjustable stock and streamlined forend sport Mossberg’s signature texturing. With the matte blued finish, weight is 7.75 pounds and overall length is 44.75 inches.


For more shots between reloads, the 940’s extended magazine tube has a 9+1 capacity, and the shotgun comes with a Briley extended choke tube set for quick, easy choke changes.
