Anyone have a lot of rounds thru their 930 JM Pro or more specifically the 930 Pro sporting? I am interested in how the gun holds up to shooting thousands of rounds not just hundreds like most hunting guns.

Thanks, Doc

Although JM and his daughter have a vested interest in the 940 model; maybe a call to him would give you some "relatively unbiased" feedback on what sort of problems to expect after a great deal of shooting with the 930 version. Maybe not-but I think it is worth a try.

You also have the 2 year Mossberg warranty to fall back on so that should provide some peace of mind.

I would be interested in anything you find out. I would also explore the 3 gun shooting fraternity and see what they report about the JM Pro model.

I think I will try to communicate with JM like you suggested. But, I don't know how different the sporting version is. Probably will try to talk with him anyway.

I will look for a 3 gun chat room also.

Thanks

I had a 930 JM pro tactical that I used for 3 gun for several years. Don't know the total round count, but probably over 5000 , and I had no problems. Very fun gun to shoot.

Only reason I sold mine is that I quit shooing 3 gun and got into clay target shooting, so needed a different shotgun.

Don't know how this compares to the sporting model. Here is a photo of the one I had:

I have a standard 930 and I put around 2000 rds a yr through it. That is between sporting clays, hunting and skeet shooting. So I shoot 2 3/4 to 3" heavy loads. First thing is out of the box, clean the crap out of it. I use brake cleaner and remove all springs and clean those tubes also. While the springs ar out file all the burrs of the ends. Lightly lube and put back together. A stock 930 can run about 500 red before it needs cleaning can be more or less depending on the shells used. If you want to upgrade it go to Or3gun and look at there kits. I run there new gas piston and waterfowl kit in mine and it has made huge difference. I went from a 500 Rd cleaning to well over 1000 red before it needs one. People will disagree with this but the Mossberg 940 gas system is basically a copy of the Or3gun set up.

I've got a 22" JM Pro that I love now, but it was a dog right out of the box. Everything that was wrong with was stuff even a modicum of QC should have caught and if they test-fire even one magazine through them, this one would have gotten culled. This is my second 930 (the first being a dandy, reliable Field/Security Combo) so I fixed it myself.

Remember that Mossberg has one of the best customer service departments in the industry. They stand behind there products never had an issue with them. Don't be the guy who complains about their gun without letting the factory fix the problem. And definitely don't be the guy who jumps on every 930 post to complain about your gun. And then pat yourself on the back telling everybody how you fixed it. Sometimes you just need to get over it!!

The 940 action is vastly improved.

Yeah by OR3GUN. Do you think Mossberg paid them for the improvements?

I know your just kidding because the pics of the gas system are out there. And there are some way to coincidental resemblances to Or3gun a components. But I did not think you had a sense of humor thank you for proving me wrong.

As if Mossberg doesn't have an engineering department (they do) and isn't the largest shotgun manufacturer in the U.S. (they are). A spacer tube is hardly a new idea.

The 940 adds a better shell elevator, nickel-boron coated parts, and a better loading port, none of which are available aftermarket. The 940 is a far better gun than the 930 is not just out of the box, but better than the 930 is capable of being.

Nickel boron is on several models of the 930. The enlarged loading port was already on the JM Pro hardly ground breaking. . How come it took so long for Mossberg to come out with the spacer? Or3guns piston was advertised on this site at least a Year ago and the spacer was around long before that. You missed the boat on that one. Did you even know that spacer was copied? Your problem is you think everybody but you is dumb. Ohhh the engineer came up with that in the middle of the night it was a revelation to the industry. That idea came to them through Fed Ex and Paypal!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

If/when somebody does an in depth side-by-side comparison of the 930 & 940 I'll be the first in line to watch. Both our 930s are reliable (now) and nobody here is adverse to cleaning a shotgun every 500-600 rounds, so there won't be any trading-up. But I'll admit to a certain curiosity about parts interchangeability between models.
