Tactical SPX Pistol 12 Gauge
The O.F. Mossberg Tactical SPX Pistol 12 Gauge & Sons Mossberg Tactical SPX Pistol 12 Gauge semi-automatic shotguns are feature rich, durable and impressive replete with nice touches that you might expect or that might just surprise you. There are over a dozen models that between them cover a wide variety of options and needs. These group into Hunting, Tactical and Sporting models.
Each of these 930s has an ambidextrous tang safety and a quick-empty magazine release button. Push it and all loaded shells easily drop out. The receivers are drilled and tapped so you can mount Picatinny rail for optics. Synthetic forend and stock models have an adjustable stock drop spacer system. These guns also have a dual gas-vent system that reduces felt recoil.
Except where noted, the Hunting models are 4+1 capacity autoloading shotguns built around 24” or 28” barrels topped by rib vents. They weigh 7.5 to 7.75 pounds and have 44.5” to 48.5” overall lengths. Most have front fiber optic sights, polymer forends and stocks. Most have a camouflage scheme. But even here there are many outliers. For instance, the 930 Hunting All Purpose Field has a classic standard model with a blued barrel and receiver that’s paired with a walnut forend and walnut buttstock.
