Mossberg 930 Tactical Shotgun Review
Part 5 - Internal Features
March 10, 2013

Mossberg 930 Tactical Review

In this part of my Mossberg 930 Tactical Shotgun Review, I show all of the internal features of this shotgun.  Since there are over 100 photos below, I don't comment on each photo, but have provided them so you can study them yourselves and form your own opinions on what you see.

 


Receiver Assembly

Although further disassembly is possible for the receiver shown below, I decided this level of disassembly was far enough to show the internal features.

The magazine tube is threaded into the receiver and I was able to start unscrewing the tube slightly, but after a turn, the torque unscrews increased significantly so I decided to leave well enough alone since I hadn't had a chance to range test the shotgun.

Thoughts

I need to spend more time shooting guns and not my camera.
