The Mossberg 940 Pro autoloading shotgun platform is based on a cleaner-running, redesigned gas-operating system with corrosion-resistant internal parts and finishes. Other key design features include an enlarged and beveled loading port, an elongated, pinch-free elevator, and a bright orange anodized follower configured for ease of loading.

Externally, 940 Pro shotguns have an adjustable length-of-pull stock and shims for drop-at comb and cast adjustments for added customization. The forend features a slim profile; and both stock and forend feature Mossberg’s signature aggressive texturing for a secure grip. Available models include competition, waterfowl, turkey, field, and tactical; select models feature optic-cut receivers for direct mounting of microdot sights.

Accepting the awards was Richard Kirk, Mossberg’s Senior Director of Marketing, “What a tremendous honor; and on behalf of everyone at Mossberg, I would like to express our appreciation to the NRA Publications staff, and specifically to NRA Woman and American Hunter for recognition of our 940 Pro shotgun,” remarked Kirk.
