A Modern-Engineered, Classically-Styled Hunting Rifle.
North Haven, CT –-(Ammoland.com)- For over 95 years, America’s oldest family-owned firearms manufacturer, O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc., has delivered well-designed, value-packed shotguns, as well as centerfire and rimfire rifle designs to the marketplace.
Now, Mossberg is pleased to announce the birth of a new classic – the Mossberg Patriot bolt-action rifle.
This series of traditionally-styled rifles combines the most desirable features from previous Mossberg centerfire rifles in a re-engineered bolt-action platform, featuring a streamlined bolt handle, redesigned bolt knob and hunter-inspired, classic-style stocks. With over 60 models in 11 of the most popular calibers, including the latest in big game calibers, the 375 Ruger; Bantam and Super Bantam youth versions; and Vortex Optics-scoped combos, there is a modern-day Patriot to suit every hunter’s taste.
At the heart of the Patriot series is Mossberg’s proven twin-lug, push-feed machined-steel action which is fed from a lightweight polymer, flush box magazine with 4 or 5-round total capacity (magnum and standard calibers respectively). The button-rifled, standard contour, free-floating 22-inch barrels (20-inch barrels on Bantam/Super Bantam) are constructed of carbon steel, feature straight-edge fluting (375 Ruger versions have non-fluted barrels) and recessed crowns. Metal finishes include a choice of Matte Blue or Mossberg’s proprietary, Marinecote™ protective finish. Every Patriot rifle also features Mossberg’s patented LBA™ (Lightning Bolt Action) Adjustable Trigger System for consistent shot placement and is user-adjustable from 2 to 7 pounds. Other standard features include distinctive, spiral-fluted bolts; receiver-mounted, weaver-style scope bases; adjustable, fiber optic sights (select calibers); and sling swivel studs.
The Patriot series features well-designed stocks with the graceful lines of a classic hunting rifle and the modern appeal of textured stippling on the grip and the three surface areas of the forend. The traditional stock design features a straight comb with rounded edges and raised cheekpiece for greater comfort and reduced recoil. A polymer block insert with integral magazine well provides a simple, but effective bedding platform. Over 60 models are available, housed in walnut, durable grey laminate, black synthetic or camo-finished synthetic stock options with a traditional, black rubber recoil pad. To complement the stock redesign and improve handling, Mossberg has streamlined the bolt handle, providing additional clearance for gloved hands, and added an aggressively-checkered bolt knob. And as a first for Mossberg, bolt-action rifles chambered in the new hard-hitting 375 Ruger, which feature cross-bolts in the classic, big game laminate stock versions.
Available calibers: 22-250 Rem, 243 Win, 7mm-08, 308 Win, 25-06 Rem, 270 Win, 30-06 Sprg, 7mm Rem Mag, 300 Win Mag, 338 Win Mag and 375 Ruger.
With an impressive initial offering of 63 models, the Patriot line-up includes Mossberg’s innovative Super Bantam with adjustable length of pull (LOP) system and compact Bantam rifles ideal for young hunters or adults who prefer a shorter LOP. These youth offerings are available with walnut, black synthetic or camo-covered synthetic stocks. For the hardcore whitetail hunter, choose one of the ready-to-take afield Mossy Oak® Deer Thug combos, also available in our Super Bantam platform. These rifles feature Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity®-covered stock, versatile 3-9x40mm riflescope and handy sling. Mossberg donates a portion of the proceeds from sales of Deer Thug rifles to Mossy Oak in support of the Outdoor Recreation Heritage Fund (ORHF). If you prefer a more traditional, field-ready gun with black synthetic or walnut stock, then select from our scoped combos which include a factory-mounted, 3-9x40mm riflescope or step up to a combo featuring Vortex Optics Crossfire® II riflescope with Dead-Hold® BDC reticle. The Patriot is also available in our tactical Night Train™ package which includes a variable, long-range riflescope and bipod; now available in 300 Win Mag.
MSRP: Patriot rifles, Scoped Combos, Deer Thug Scoped Combos, Bantam and Super Bantam $386 – $584; Patriot Vortex Optics Scoped Combos: $552; and Patriot Night Train Tactical Rifles: $634 – $811.
The Mossberg Patriot is the sum of all rifles that came before it and you should be one of the first to own this new American classic. For a complete list of available models, visit www.mossberg.com.
