SHOT Show 2015 What’s New for the Outdoorsmen Part 2 By Gary Howey

As I mentioned in my last column, there are hundreds of new products introduced the SHOT Show, the ones I’m listing are but a few of those we found while attending the show.

 Mossberg’s Patriot Series Rifles

Mossberg introduced their Patriot Series of traditionally styled Rifles at this year’s show, taking the most desirable features from their Mossberg centerfire rifles in a re-engineered bolt-action platform, featuring a streamlined bolt handle, redesigned bolt knob and hunter-inspired, classic-style stocks. With over 60 models in 11 of the most popular calibers, including the latest in big game calibers, the 375 Ruger; Bantam and Super Bantam youth versions; and Vortex Optics-scoped combos, there is a modern-day Patriot to suit every hunter’s taste. Every Patriot rifle features Mossberg’s patented LBA™ (Lightning Bolt Action) Adjustable Trigger System. Over 60 models are available, housed in walnut, durable grey laminate, black synthetic or camo-finished synthetic stock options with a traditional, black rubber recoil pad. To complement the stock redesign and improve handling, Mossberg has streamlined the bolt handle, providing additional clearance for gloved hands, and added an aggressively checkered bolt knob, as a first for Mossberg, bolt-action rifles chambered in the new hard-hitting 375 Ruger, which feature cross-bolts in the classic, big game laminate stock versions. Available calibers: 22-250 Rem, 243 Win, 7mm-08, 308 Win, 25-06 Rem, 270 Win, 30-06 Sprg, 7mm Rem Mag, 300 Win Mag, 338 Win Mag and 375 Ruger. If you prefer a more traditional, field-ready gun with black synthetic or walnut stock, check out their scoped combos which include a factory-mounted, 3-9x40mm riflescope or step up to a combo featuring Vortex Optics Crossfire® II riflescope with Dead-Hold® BDC reticle. The Patriot is also available in a tactical Night Train™ package which includes a variable, long-range riflescope and bipod and now is available in 300 Win Mag.
