Mossberg's Patriot looks right on the gun rack and feels great when shouldered. The button-rifled fluted barrel is free-floated and have a recessed crown for maximum accuracy. At 22 in length, the barrel is long enough to achieve full velocity from every caliber, yet short enough for quick handling in the densest woods. The Patriots attractive spiral fluted bolts feature an ergonomic bolt angle and knurled bolt handle offering plenty of grip providing for quick follow-up shots and enhanced shooter comfort. Its box-magazine-fed action makes loading and unloading a snap.
