The following is a press release from Mossberg
At the 2015 SHOT Show, O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc., introduced a new series of traditionally-styled bolt-action rifles with hunters in mind. The Mossberg Patriot, available in 11 of the most popular calibers with over 60 models from which to choose, combines the most-desired features from previous Mossberg centerfire rifles in a re-engineered platform with streamlined bolt handle, redesigned bolt knob and classic, hunting-style stock. Now 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.
