New Gear for 2009

Mossberg introduces the Lightning Bolt Action Trigger System for its centerfire bolt action rifles – enhancing performance and accuracy. With its distinctive skeletonized lightning bolt trigger blade, the LBA Trigger System offers the best in form and functionality, giving the shooter the flexibility to adjust the trigger pull without a gunsmith. A simple twist of a standard screwdriver enables the LBA trigger to adjust from 2 to 7 pounds. The sear engagement offers a crisp, creep-free trigger for better accuracy, plus the LBA trigger blade blocks the sear from releasing the striker unless the blade is fully depressed, even at the lightest adjustment setting.
