Featured Mossberg Releases 940 Pro Turkey Autoloading Shotguns Forrest Cooper January 16, 2022 Join the Conversation Advances in ammunition have pushed firearms manufacturers to adapt to the new capabilities in smaller or lighter rounds. Where once a 24-inch barrel once as the standard for a turkey gun, now Mossberg has released an 18.5 inch option. The 940 Pro shotgun is already a staple in auto-loading shotguns, and continues to expand deeper into turkey territory. For the Press Release: Mossberg® Releases 940® Pro Turkey Autoloading Shotguns NORTH HAVEN, CT – 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).
