Further improvements to the 930-series shotgun, in the making of the 940 Pro Snow Goose, include an enlarged loading port for quad-loading in addition to modifications to the elevator and shell catch. Hunters will appreciate these touches when loading with gloved hands on late-winter conservation hunts, in addition to enlarged controls and a cocked indicator housed within the trigger guard.
