Mossberg introduced its 940 series of gas-operated semi-automatic shotguns at SHOT Show 2020 after years of development with competition shooters Jerry and Lena Miculek. Line extensions followed: Enter the 940 Pro Snow Goose, a premium-level semi-automatic 12 gauge outfitted with features suited for high-volume wing shooting. Watch the above NRA Gun of the Week video to see it in use, and to learn more.
The Mossberg 940 Pro Snow Goose is built with a competition-inspired gas system for unfailing functionality and comes chambered for 12-gauge shotshells. The 940 Pro Snow Goose also has the capability to operate with both 2 ¾” and 3” ammunition for up to 1,500 rounds continuously before required cleaning.
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.
True Time Viper Snow camouflaging wraps the 940 Pro’s synthetic furniture and Battleship Gray Cerakote covers the receiver, barrel and 12-round-capacity, extended magazine tube. Mossberg provides a self-draining stock that is shim-adjustable for length of pull, cast and drop to make for a perfect fit. A 28” steel barrel comes with the 940 Pro Snow Goose and contains a raised, ventilated sighting rib fitted with a HIVIZ fiber-optic sight. The 940 Pro Snow Goose comes standard with an X-Factor extended and ported choke tube.
