Clint Smith Designed 590, 940


Fans of the shotgun just got a pair of higher-end versions to choose from, designed in collaboration with the legendary Clint Smith of Thunder Ranch fame. These Mossberg Thunder Ranch shotguns feature a distinctive Cerakote finish along with the Thunder Ranch logo. More importantly, the shotguns include a feature set built to run, whether for duty, defense or sport.

The Thunder Ranch package comes on a new 590 and 940 Pro platform. Each shotgun includes a patent-pending optic-cut receiver for mounting low-profile microdot sight. The Patriot Brown Cerakote finish delivers a unique look and styling. Chambered in 12-gauge, the shotguns each run up to 3-inch shells.

“We are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with Mossberg. They have continuously provided quality shotguns for our clients and shooting community at affordable prices,” said Clint Smith, Thunder Ranch Director. “Say whatever you want about shotguns being archaic, they have proven themselves over and over to be very capable in defense of the individual, military member, and law enforcement officer for many years previous and for many more years to come.”
