Mossberg Announces New Patriot Rifles

posted on August 21, 2019
Mossberg has announced several new models in its Patriot line. First are the Patriot Synthetic and the Patriot Synthetic Super Bantam bolt-action rifles, chambered in 350 Legend. Both models are also available in scoped combinations, with variable 3-9 X 40 mm riflescopes. 

Designed for hunters, these rifles provide a platform for the straight-walled hunting cartridge that features a stock with a straight comb, rounded edges, a raised cheekpiece and a black rubber recoil pad. The grip boasts textured stippling, as do three surfaces on the fore-end. The standard-contour 22" barrel is free-floating, with a 1:16" twist and a matte-blue finish. To release one's shot, Mossberg has installed its Lightening Bolt-Action (LBA) user-adjustable trigger (adjustment range is 2 to 7 lbs.). The bolt is spiral-fluted, with a streamlined and checkered bolt handle; Weaver-style scope bases sit on the receiver, which is fed by a four-round box magazine. 

The Super Bantam additionally comes with a variable Length of Pull (LOP) stock, with a one-inch spacer, allowing LOP to be adjusted between 12" and 13". 

Next, Mossberg has released its Patriot Predator rifle in 6.5 PRC. This rifle is available either in a Flat Dark Earth (FDE) synthetic stock with matte-blue metal, or a TrueTimber Strata camouflaged-synthetic stock, with a metalwork in Patriot Brown Cerakote. Both stocks feature a straight-comb, rounded edge, a raised cheekpiece and a black rubber recoil pad.

Internally, the Patriot Predator features Mossberg's twin-lug, push-feed, machined-steel action, fed by a flush-fit four-round box magazine. The carbon-steel barrel is 24" with a 1:8" twist, straight-edge fluting and is threaded 5/8"-24 TPI for a suppressor. Much like its Patriot Synthetic siblings, the Patriot Predator has an LBA trigger, though instead of Weaver mounts, a top-mounted Picatinny rail provides for optic attachment.
