Mounting a red dot sight to your shotgun doesn’t have to be complicated. The Mossberg 940 Pro Tactical makes it even simpler by shipping with a Holosun micro dot already in place. No searching for an aftermarket mount, no drilling and tapping, no milling; this shotgun is ready to go with a red dot right out of the box. Mossberg designed it with tactical shooting in mind, and it’s a fantastic option for everything from home defense to range time.
Mossberg’s 940 Pro Tactical Holosun Micro Dot Combo is a 12 gauge that comes with an HS407K open reflex optical sight already in place. The gun maker also offers the 940 Pro Tactical, which doesn’t have a red dot mounted but does have a removable cover plate so shooters can place a red dot should they choose to do so. That means you’re covered whether you want to choose your own red dot or have one ready to go.
The company’s optic-ready 940 Pro Tactical is an eight-shot autoloader based on a redesigned, cleaner-running gas-operating system. This semi-auto system is made to run up to 1500 rounds without cleaning. Also, the Tactical has corrosion-resistant internal parts and finishes, including a nickel boron-coated gas piston, magazine tube, hammer, and sear. This is a shotgun that’s made to withstand serious use and deliver serious longevity.
Among its many useful features are an enlarged and beveled loading port, an elongated, pinch-free elevator, and bright orange anodized follower. Easier manipulation is possible thanks to the knurled, extended charging handle and oversized, ergonomic bolt release lever. The extended magazine tube has a 7+1 round capacity using 2.75-inch shells.
The barrel clamp has a sling swivel stud plus dual-sided M-LOK-compatible slots, making it easy to add aftermarket accessories such as weapon-mounted lights. The barrel length is 18.5 inches and features a matte finish with a fiber optic front sight. The barrel is threaded for use with interchangeable AccuChoke choke tubes and a cylinder choke tube is included.
Features of the shotgun include:
- Factory-installed Holosun micro dot.
- Sling studs in place for the easy addition of a sling.
- 7 +1 capacity using 2.75-inch 12 gauge shotshells.
