Mossberg 930 SPX Shotgun in Coyote Tan

Mossberg 930 SPX

Mossberg announced a new 930 SPX shotgun with a pistol grip and a coyote tan finish.  Unfortunately, I was not able to secure a photo of the new color for this article.  The photo above is obviously not coyote tan, but it is the same style of 930 SPX autoloading shotgun.

The 930 SPX is considered part of Mossberg’s “special purpose” or tactical line.  The gun is chambered for the 12 gauge (of course) and has a 7+1 capacity.  It has ghost ring sights and a Picatinny rail on the top of the receiver for the addition of a red dot or other optic if you so desire.  If I am able to secure a photo of the tan model, I will post it here.
