North Haven, CT --( O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc, America’s oldest family-owned and operated firearms manufacturer, is announcing a multi-year agreement with Red Jacket Firearms and the stars of the reality-based TV series, Sons of Guns, to include a branded series of shotguns and rifles developed in conjunction with the Red Jacket Firearms team.

The first three firearms in the Red Jacket Series will be unveiled at the 2014 National Rifle Association Meetings & Exhibits in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Red Jacket’s Will Hayden, Founder, and Joe Meaux, Chief Executive Officer, will appear each day from 1pm to 3pm in the Mossberg booth #6645 at the Indiana Convention Center, home of this year’s NRA Convention.

Marine Corps veteran and reenactment enthusiast, Will Hayden launched his Louisiana-based, custom firearms manufacturing business in 1999 and Red Jacket Firearms soon earned the moniker as “the nation’s most unique weapons business.”

Hayden was joined at the helm by Red Jacket Partner, Stephanie (Hayden) Ford, his daughter at the age of 18. Stephanie serves as the company’s firearms-savvy Business Manager, but she is also a dedicated advocate for gun safety, firearms training and wetlands conservation in her home state.

Kris Ford, Production Manager, joined the family business in 2009 and under Will’s tutelage soon became a gun builder, munitions enthusiast and eventually, his son-in-law.

Joe Meaux may serve as CEO, but his passions lie in the mechanics and physics of firearms design and being an exceptional marksman. Once just a hobby for Meaux, he began building the “impossible” when he joined Red Jacket in 2009.

And the final member of the team is forensic firearms expert, Charlie Watson. He moonlights at Red Jacket as their technical troubleshooter and has an ardent love for the science of weaponry. Together they share their latest projects on the top-rated, Sons of Guns TV series, which currently airs on the Discovery Channel each Friday at 9/8c.

“With a common dedication to innovative firearms designs and reliability, Mossberg is pleased to partner with the Red Jacket Firearms team to bring a series of custom tactical shotguns and rifles to the marketplace,” commented Iver Mossberg, CEO. “The Red Jacket brand is unparalleled with their focus on precision, physics and a desire to build ‘what can’t be done’ in the world of firearms.”

“Our partnership with Mossberg will allow more gun enthusiasts to experience the custom features of Red Jacket Firearms in a more affordable platform,” stated Will Hayden, Founder, Red Jacket Firearms, Inc. “Our companies share like-mindedness in bringing cutting-edge designs and well-built firearms to our customers.”

Mossberg has worked with Hayden and his team to develop a line of branded “Red Jacket Firearms” across multiple categories including the first three in the series: MVP Red Jacket Tactical Target bolt-action rifle, 500 FLEX Red Jacket Turkey/Security Shotgun Combo and 590 Red Jacket Tactical shotgun.

      Apparently Mossberg thinks they can get get by with not doing the right thing. Wonder how the media and this company would like to see our 935s that blew apart in my husbands face?? First one was sent back to company. In which they made him a second one they designed promising it wouldn’t happen again and that one to blew up. Broke in same exact spot ( and still has hull jammed in it). All they are worried about is getting gun back in their possession. Not refunding our money for gun or other new barrel. Nor worrying about the safety of others….
