Mossberg is pleased to announce the addition of five new Patriot bolt‐action rifles that feature Kryptek Highlander camo stocks with matte blue metal finishes in 243 Win, 308 Win, 270 Win, 30‐06 Sprg and 300 Win Mag.
The Patriot series is based on Mossberg’s proven twin‐lug, push‐feed machined‐steel action which is fed from a lightweight polymer, flush box magazine with 5‐round total capacity (4‐round capacity for 300 Win Mag chambering). The button‐rifled, standard contour, free‐floating 22‐inch barrels are constructed of carbon steel and feature straight‐ edge fluting and recessed crowns.
Exposed metalwork has a Matte Blue 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 for ease of adding optics; and sling swivel studs.
These five new Patriot rifles feature Kryptek Highlander stocks; a camouflage pattern specially‐designed for hunting in varied terrain and elevation. The classic stock design has textured stippling on the grip and the three surface areas of the forend and features a straight comb with rounded edges, raised cheekpiece and traditional rubber butt pad for greater comfort and reduced recoil. A polymer block insert with integral magazine well provides a simple, but effective bedding platform.
To complement the stock redesign and improve handling, Mossberg has streamlined the bolt handle, providing additional clearance for gloved or larger hands, and added an aggressively‐checkered bolt knob.
The newest members of the Mossberg Patriot bolt‐action family have a modern edge with the latest in concealment, Kryptek Highlander camo. For a complete list of available Patriot models and more information on this American‐made bolt‐action rifle series, please visit www.mossberg.com.
