Sometimes great combinations just find just stick: peanut butter and jelly; mac and cheese; and now … Mossberg’s 940 Pro Tactical Holosun Micro Dot Combo. The optic-ready autoloading shotgun combo model is now offered outfitted with an HS407K open reflex optical sight (but of course, the standard model is still offered, which comes with a cover plate for when an optic is not used).
In early 2022 NRA Women Editor-in-Chief Ann Y. Smith met with seven other ladies at the renowned Gunsite Academy and put the combo through the rigors on the range. Although the Holosun was not yet officially part of the package, we all agreed that adding the sight to this shotgun was a game changer.
In short, here’s what makes this shotgun so sweet—and even sweeter now that Holosun is now available on the shotgun at the time of purchase. Mossberg’s optic-ready 940 Pro Tactical 8-shot autoloaders are based on a cleaner-running and redesigned gas-operating system that can run up to 1,500 rounds between cleaning intervals. And like all 940 Pro shotguns, the Tactical versions have corrosion-resistant internal parts and finishes including nickel boron-coated gas piston, magazine tube, hammer and sear. These guns are designed for quick target acquisition, ease of operation, and adjustability.
Other key design features include an enlarged and beveled loading port, elongated, pinch-free elevator and bright orange anodized follower configured for ease of loading. The knurled, extended charging handle and oversized, ergonomic bolt release lever provide for easy manipulation. The extended magazine tube allows for a 7+1 round capacity with 2.75-inch shells and the barrel clamp features a sling swivel stud plus dual-sided M-LOK-compatible slots for the addition of accessories. The 18.5-inch barrel features a matte finish and is topped with a fiber optic front sight. The barrel is threaded for use with interchangeable AccuChoke choke tubes (Cylinder choke tube included).
Completing the 940 Pro Tactical is a user-adjustable length-of-pull synthetic stock with a range of 12.5 – 14.25 inches and adjustability for drop at comb and cast with the use of incremental stock shims. The synthetic fore-end has a slim profile; and both stock and fore-end feature Mossberg’s signature aggressive texturing for a secure grip and black matte finish. A rear sling swivel stud is also installed.
