Mossberg 940 JM Pro REVIEW

Mossberg's newest shotgun, the 940 JM Pro is a gas-action semi automatic for competition although it would serve just fine as a home defense gun. For under $1000 it may be the best shotty going. In this video, Jeff tells why.

Professional outdoor writer and longtime gun tester Jeff Johnston explains why he believes Mossberg’s new racecar-esk 940 JM Pro may be the best competition gun going for under $900–and like always he backs it up with actual data.

In this video, you’ll also hear from the best shooter in the history of the world, Jerry Miculek, and how and why he designed the 940 JM (Jerry Miculek) Pro shotgun the way he did. (Oh yea, and the 940 would also make one hell of a defensive weapon for your home.)

Check out this video to get the scoop!

A winner… right out-of-the-box.Designed in conjunction with World Champion shooter Jerry Miculek, the new 940 JM Pro is feature-rich, fast-cycling, and ultra-competitive.Competition-Ready Features.These 940 JM Pro autoloaders were built to compete and win. Inside, you will find a new durable gas system that allows for up to 1500 rounds between cleaning, nickel boron-coated internal parts for smooth operation, and a competition-level loading port, elevator, and follower. Outside, an adjustable stock and streamlined forend sport Mossberg signature texturing, while a host of stylized, functional components combine for competition— to optimize speed, accuracy, and durability.

Adjustable Length-of-Pull. Competition-ready stock is user-adjustable for LOP (1 .25″ range), and adjustable for drop at comb and cast using incremental stock shims. Aggressive Mossberg signature texturing adorns the grip and the slim, ergonomic forend.

Built for Quad-Loading. An enlarged and beveled loading port was specifically configured for quad-loading; features an anodized bright orange follower, and an elongated, pinch-free elevator.
Bold and Functional. Receivers are anodized (in tungsten gray or black) for superior durability. Oversized and contoured charging handle and bolt release button provide quick manipulation. Briley extended chokes put pellets right where you want them, while the HIVIZ® front fiber optic sight gets you on target faster when the competition is fierce.

At an early age Jeff was kicked in the face by an exposed hammer shotgun, stunting his growth but also sparking a passion for guns, hunting and the outdoors. Since the crack of that old gun, he's traveled the world, hunting, shooting and writing for national outdoor magazines. His Youtube page adds a bit of practicality to tacticality, dispels hunting and shooting myths, gives fairly honest reviews of guns and gear because he's not beholden to anyone, and offers real-world based tips--that might well be wrong. Rest assured, Jeff is no Navy SEAL, although he stayed at a Holiday Inn once in San Diego.
