Mossberg was on deck at SHOT Show 2020 with some new products that livened up the show floor. From the Miculek approved autoloading shotgun to new pistols, Guns.com was on hand to check out all the new goods.
940 JM Pro
The competition-grade autoloading shotgun is Mossberg’s biggest news of the year. With heavy input from professional shooters Jerry Miculek and daughter Lena, the 940 JM Pro is purpose-built for high-capacity, high-volume, rapid fire. The shotgun holds 9+1 rounds, has a three-inch chamber, and ships with a set of Briley choke tubes. Length of pull (LOP) is adjustable from 13- to 14.25-inches. The 24-inch barrel is topped with a fiber optic front sight. Two models are launching simultaneously — one black synthetic with gold trim detail and the other more muted with Black Multicam. MSRP is the same at $1,015.
MC1sc and MC2c models
With Mossberg’s first serious semi-auto pistol making its home in a crowded market last year, the company advances the lineup in 2020. The number of new additions include both cosmetic and performance-based variations. There’s a stainless covered in Flat Dark Earth DLC, as well as a two-tone stainless with cross-bolt safety options. Perhaps the hottest—and most attractive of the lot—is a MC1sc TruGlo Tritium Pro version that is both coated with FDE DLC and topped with the exceptional night sights.
In addition to the MC1sc models, Mossberg also unleashed the MC2c onto the masses. Chambered in 9mm and featuring a capacity of 13+1 with the flush fit mag and 15+1 with the extended, the MC2c comes in five total configurations.
SA 410 Field & Turkey
Building on the booming success of .410 shotguns for hunting—especially turkeys by baby bore—Mossberg introduces a pair of new scatterguns. The semi-automatic SA-410 will be offered in both a Field and Turkey model. Each wears a 26-inch vent rib barrel and holds 4+1 rounds of three-inch .410 ammo. The Field is dressed in black synthetic while the Turkey is covered in Mossy Oak Bottomland camo.
New Calibers in Patriot lineup
Mossberg’s Patriot family of bolt action rifles is wildly successful and gaining steam each year. Though there’s not much for new models, there are a host of caliber additions of which to take note. The base model Patriots are now firing .350 Legend, 7mm Rem Mag and .338 Win Mag. Meanwhile, the Patriot Predator makes additions of the .450 Bushmaster and 6.5 PRC.
Patriot LR Hunter
Long-range is the name of the game in the hunting world these days, and it was only a matter of time before Mossberg’s respected budget line of rifles joined the fray. The new LR Hunter is available in four calibers–.308 Win, 6.5 Creed, 6.5 PRC and .300 Win Mag–with 22- or 24-inch fluted and threaded barrels that are both muzzlebrake or suppressor ready. The company designed a Spider Gray wood-core, polymer coated stock for added durability, with the webbing enhancing gripability as well. Like other Patriots, the LR Hunter features the LBA adjustable trigger, spiral fluted bolt, box magazine and oversized bolt handle. Though the LR Hunter was on display at SHOT it will not begin shipping until later in the year. MSRP is rumored to be set in the $700 range.
Higher Capacity Is the Buzz Word
The Model 590 pump-action shotguns get a capacity upgrade. In addition to the seven-shot models, Mossberg is now adding nine-shot options in both 12- and 20-gauge. Some wear FLEX furniture, with others keeping standard synthetic. The JM Pro goes big with the 9+1 round capacity. Small guns also hold high volume with the Maverick line of 88 Cruiser pistols in not only standard six, but now eight round tubes.
