The NEW Mossberg 940 Tactical Semi-Auto Shotgun is Here (and it's Going to be Under $1,000)

In this episode of TFBTV, James Reeves gets his hands on a pre-production copy of the Mossberg 940 Tactical semi-automatic shotgun – the tactical version of Mossberg’s vaunted new Mossberg 940 series of shotguns. Using the same re-designed gas system, nickel boron internal treatments, optic cut from the factory, and with a blazing fast trigger and operating system, the 940 Tactical looks like the least expensive option for a reliable and feature-filled semi-auto 12 gauge with its $1,120 MSRP. But does the 940 Tactical have what it takes to match up with more expensive options or is the competitive price point indicative of a less-capable shotgun? James investigates today on TFBTV.

Per Mossberg’s spec sheet about this new shotgun:

The New, Optic-Ready 940 Pro Tactical Autoloader. This 940 Pro model comes optic-ready, with receiver cuts that accept low-profile direct mounting of Shield RMSc-pattern micro dot sights for improved eye alignment and target acquisition (a cover plate is included for when an optic is not in use). Inside, you will find a durable gas system that allows for up to 1500 rounds between cleanings, and a host of corrosion-resistant internal parts/finishing (nickel boron-coated gas piston, magazine tube,hammer and sear); plus an enlarged/beveled loading port, elongated elevator, and anodized follower for smooth operation. Outside, the adjustable stock allows for 1.75″ of LOP flexibility; the stock and streamlined forend feature Mossberg signature texturing for a secure grip; a barrel clamp provides accessory flexibility via M-LOK mounting slots; and a front fiber optic sight helps keep you on target.

    The MSRP is about $100 less than the Beretta 1301.

    They've got a high bar to get over.

      @BillyOblivion Could be that some brands purposely setting ambitious MSRPs for sellers to advertise discounts from (Trijicon, Ruger), or that some brands (SIG) don't really enforce their MAP policies (Minimum Advertised Price). Or a combination of the two.

      Mossberg may have a history of having to match or beat Remington's shotgun pricing, while Beretta may not view American shotguns as competing for the same customers.

    Last time I took a math class (and I took a LOT of them), $1120 was not under $1000.
