THE MOSSBERG 930™ SPX RECEIVES GOLDEN BULLSEYE AWARD FROM NRA PUBLICATIONS
SHOTGUN OF THE YEAR — SHOOTING ILLUSTRATED
North Haven, CT (May, 2009) – The Mossberg® 930™SPX was honored at the annual NRA Show with a Golden Bullseye Award for Shotgun of the Year by NRA Publication’s Shooting Illustrated. The award was announced during the NRA convention in Phoenix, AZ. The 930™SPX autoloader was recognized for having the necessary qualities needed in an effective tactical shotgun, being described by the editors as “simple, reliable, and rugged.”
“It is an honor to receive such a prestigious award from the NRA. At Mossberg we strive to produce high quality firearms for tactical, hunting, and recreational shooters alike”, states Iver Mossberg, CEO. “We are humbled to have our firearm recognized amongst the other brands of shotguns by such an organization as the NRA. Our dedicated team of engineers and employees share in the recognition and honor.”
Similar to the existing 930 Home Security model, the SPX is distinguished by its 18.5-inch cylinder-bore barrel, 7-round capacity extended magazine tube (plus one in the chamber) and LPA ghost ring rear sight and winged fiber optic front sight that provides quick target acquisition. The 930 SPX comes standard with a factory-installed Picatinny rail, increasing versatility when mounting optics and light systems.
