Three Mossberg Intros for 2015—Patriot, 500/590/590A1 L Series, Light Chassis Bolt Actions

We covered some of Mossberg’s new products in the SHOT 2015 special rifle edition; but here’s a more comprehensive video look at some of the company’s introductions for this year. The presenter is Linda Powell, public relations director for O.F. Mossberg and Sons, Inc.

Mossberg Patriot Bolt-Action Rifle Series

Mossberg Patriot bolt-action series are classically styled hunting rifles. Some models feature fluted 22-inch barrels, other utilize plain barrels. The Bantam youth series comes with a 20-inch fluted barrel, a spiral fluted bolt and streamlined bolt handle, and Weaver-style scope bases. The rifles are fed from a detachable box magazine that holds three magnum rounds and four standard-caliber rounds. Caliber offerings include .22/250 Rem., .243 Win., 7mm-08 Rem., .308 Win., .270 Win., .30/06 Sprg., 7mm Rem. Mag., .300 Win. Mag., .338 Win. Mag. and .375 Ruger.

Mossberg 500/590/590A1 L Series

Mossberg and Sons, Inc., announced a new series of left-handed, pump-action shotguns, the Mossberg 500/590/590A1 L Series. Now, left-handed shooters can choose from 15 versions of the dependable workhorse platform.

The 500/590/590A1 L Series is based upon the 500 pump-action platform with non-binding twin action bars, positive steel-to-steel lock-up and anti-jam elevator; dual extractors; anodized aluminum receiver; vent rib ACCU-CHOKE barrel (excluding Slugster and Tactical models); and an ambidextrous top-mounted safety.

For 2015, Mossberg will offer nine general-purpose and hunting versions of the 500 L Series, including these models:

  • 500 FLEX TLS System All-Purpose, which can easily be re-configured using Mossberg’s FLEX TLS accessory forends, stocks and recoil pads
  • 500 All-Purpose
  • 500 Turkey, 500 Waterfowl and slug-specific models
  • 500 Field/Deer Combo (two-barrel set)
  • 500 Super Bantam with an adjustable length-of-pull (LOP) system

Six tactical models are available including the military-approved 590A1 9-shot; a heat-shield version of the 590 9-shot; and three 6-shot, or an optional 8-shot, 500 Tactical shotguns including two Cruiser/Persuader packages. Both 12 and 20-gauge versions are available in select models.

The All-Purpose and Hunting guns feature black synthetic stocks; fully-camouflaged Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity (Turkey) and Realtree MAX-4 (Waterfowl) synthetic stocks with complementing camo barrels and receivers; and dual comb wood stocks with ISB (cantilever) fully-rifled barrels in the hard-hitting 500 Slugster® platform.

Mossberg MVP LC (Light Chassis) Bolt-Action Rifle

Mossberg’s groundbreaking MVP Series of bolt-action rifles includes a lightweight, aluminum MDT chassis; Magpul Mil-Spec CTR adjustable stock and MOE pistol grip; SilencerCo Saker muzzle brake; and an adjustable bipod in 5.56mm NATO (223 Rem) and 7.62mm NATO (308 Win). Both are available in optional Vortex-scoped combos. These AR-compatible bolt-actions utilize patented design features that accept and feed from AR-style magazines (AR15-style for 5.56mm NATO and both M1A/M14 and AR10-style for 7.62mm NATO models).

Housed in an aluminum, tan-finished, light chassis stock designed by MDT that provides a modular, ergonomic base, this MVP is engineered for accuracy with its V-shaped bedding and recoil lug area which only makes contact with the receiver at those points. The free-floating, medium bull barrel is threaded and comes with a SilencerCo Saker muzzle brake, utilizing the Trifecta quick-detach mounting system (thread cap included).

  1. I am Lefty, and can’t wait to order my first Mossberg. I was going to buy a right as the Mossy design fits me best vs the righty versions of REM, Benelli, and Ithaca. When will they be deliverable When can I order?

  2. I actually just bought my first rifle and received it 2 days ago. It is the Mossberg MVP Varmint .308 cal. I am interested in learning to shoot 500 to 800 yds and become proficient in dialing in different distances from 100 to 800 yards at my cousins 320 acre farm in Louisiana. Thanks for asking about the Mossberg in my future. I would say one other piece of equip. I bought for this task is the SWFA SS 10×42 rifle scope w/ Milrad Turrets (researched and recommended by Sniper 101 Youtube Video Series).

    1. 300 win mag will do your long range shooting and is more then adiquite for 1000 yds shots groups . 308 is darn good up to 900 yds but drops off pretty quick with any wind after that.

    2. Thanks Richard. Your comment mirrors the information I’ve come across in my research. I won’t be able to try the 300 win mag since I just bought my first rifle in .308 win as I mentioned before. My cousin has 875yds clear so I thought I’d try working my way up to 800yds w/ a short term goal of zeroing in my SWFA SS 10×42, learning the skills to produce small groups up to 300yds, w/ a longer term goal of working my way to 5 or 600yds and eventually through to 800yds. 🙂 🙂

      Thanks for your considerate reply,

    1. Thanks GRA and so did I. I recently saw a youtube video a guy did on his MVP Varmint 5.56 and how the Magpul polly and popular AR magazines didn’t work in his gun so well. He could get them in w/ some work but said he found his gun accepted the stainless steel AR Stoner mags fine. He did say he had a friend w/ the same gun that had no trouble at all. Strange huh? I wonder if I’ll have any trouble w/ my .308?

      Anyway, thanks for your considerate reply,
      Steph
