I first saw the Mossberg 940 JM PRO at SHOT Show 2020
Where I had the opportunity to speak with Gilles Stubbins, the Canadian rep as well as the two people who had considerable input into the design, champion shooters Jerry and Lena Miculek! (though very sadly I missed Jerry’s demo during Industry Day at the Range)
The re-designed 940 JM PRO has considerable advantages over the previous model that I saw on display at CSAAA 2020.
For example, both the fore-end and magwell have been completely redesigned to allow for quad reloads. Compared to the previous version, it also now has an adjustable length of pull and a cleaner running gas recoil management system that can go 1500 rounds before cleaning.
Many have been anxiously awaiting this gun to reach Canada and it is finally here! I was lucky enough to photograph one of the first 20 in the country at one of my favourite dealers, Select Shooting Supplies being one of the first.
With a Mossberg Nightstick for comparison
I like the full size Mossberg Retrograde and I think the look works well in the Shockwave style
More comparisons…my Wally Hayes Ninjato
And the original Unbreakable Umbrella lol
Now for some closeups (supported by Armageddon Gear Game Changer and Rear Squishy Bag)
I like the gold accents everywhere such as on the huge knurled bolt and bolt release as well as the safety and magazine cap.
Front sight (there is no rear)
Finally some in-hand pics…
Tom also saw it at SHOT Show and has been awaiting its Canadian arrival..i see one in his future
We didn’t get to shoot it today so we are really looking forward to doing so!
some people were asking about how the mag tube is plugged so i reached out to the Canadian Mossberg rep and got some pics for you…
So just to recap, the 940 JM PRO was great to handle…ultimately a shooting test will seal the deal. Given that Jerry and Lena use the 940, that test may not even be necessary lol.
