North Haven, CT – Mossberg continues to expand its line of classically-styled, bolt-action rifles with the introduction of the Patriot Cerakote line in six popular calibers: 6.5mm Creedmoor, 243 Win, 7mm-08 Rem, 308 Win, 270 Win and 30-06 Sprg. The combination of a weather-resistant, black synthetic stock and the Patriot’s barrel and bolt finished with Cerakote Stainless (H-Series) firearm coating, provides enhanced protection from abrasions, chemicals and corrosion.
The Patriot Cerakote bolt-action rifle is built upon Mossberg’s proven twin-lug, push-feed machined-steel action and is fed from a lightweight polymer, flush box magazine with 4-round capacity. The 22-inch button-rifled barrel is constructed of carbon steel, free-floating and has straight-edge fluting and protective recessed muzzle crown. This value-rich rifle also comes with Mossberg’s patented Lightning Bolt Action™ (LBA™) user-adjustable trigger with a 2 to 7 pound range of adjustment. Spiral-fluted bolt, ergonomic bolt handle, Weaver-style bases and sling swivel studs round out the standard features.
The stock on the Patriot Cerakote is designed for durability and comfort. Constructed from rugged synthetic, the Patriot stock is ready to battle the elements. Textured stippling on the grip and all three sides of forend provide an aggressive surface for a solid grip. The straight comb, rounded edges and raised cheekpiece reduce felt recoil aided by the black rubber recoil pad. A polymer block insert with integral magazine well provides an effective bedding platform.
Adding the industry-leading Cerakote protective coating to the Patriot’s barrel and bolt enhances resistance to abrasion/wear, corrosion and chemicals as well as increasing impact strength and hardness. Cerakote is a thin-film, polymer-ceramic composite coating designed to enhance the physical properties of the metal surfaces and provide ultra-durability. This series features Cerakote Stainless (H-Series) which provides a dark pewter, metallic finish to the barrel and bolt.
Pairing a premium-featured rifle with a premium protective metal coating, results in rugged durability and performance. We call it the Mossberg Patriot Cerakote rifle series. For a list of specifications and to view the complete line of Patriot bolt-actions rifles, please visit www.mossberg.com.
