Mossberg is expanding its family of 940 autoloading shotguns this year with several new 12-gauge offerings, including the 940 Pro Waterfowl and Turkey series.

In 2020, Mossberg launched a new 12-gauge autoloading shotgun, the 940 JM Pro, and the world of competitive shooting took notice.


The company is bringing the high-performance platform to the hunting world, with two waterfowl-hunting models, and two for turkey hunting. At the core of the 940 platform:

  • New gas system that will run up to 1,500 rounds before cleaning and will reliably cycle any type of quality commercial factory manufactured 2.75 or 3-inch ammunition.
  • 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 to 14.25 inches), drop, and cast.
  • Oversized charging handle and bolt release button for ease of operation.


The internal components (gas piston/rings, magazine tube, hammer sear, return spring plunger and return spring tube) are nickel boron-coated and the return spring plunger is hard-anodized aluminum. Combined with the chrome-lined barrels and self-draining stocks, 940 autoloaders are designed for corrosion-resistant, reliable functioning.
