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).
