Mossberg was at the 2015 SHOT Show to introduce its newest bolt action rifle, the Patriot. The Patriot features a classic stock with a raised cheekpiece, stipling on the pistol grip, forend and bottom for enhanced grip, a 22-inch fluted barrel and a redesigned bolt handle and bolt knob. The trigger is adjustable from 2 to 7 pounds; a weight-reducing, fluted bolt is employed for smooth cycling. The Patriot is available now in 11 calibers, from .223 to .375 Ruger, and comes with your choice of synthetic, laminated and walnut stocks; it has a retail price of $350 to $550 (for scope combos).
