Mossberg’s Silver Reserve Field Shotguns Bust Clays, Not Budgets

New for 2021 is this full-featured line of over/under shotguns, perfect for women who wingshoot.

Mossberg, long known for its high-quality, affordable pump-action and semi-automatic shotguns, is taking a break in 2021 … break-action, of course! Most shooters consider the break-action shotgun to be ideal for wingshooting and clay games. That’s because it’s easy to customize the shot type and spread for your intended target, and you don’t need to consider whether a particular load has enough “oomph” to cycle the action. What’s more, they’re just plain elegant, and Mossberg’s new Silver Reserve Field line of break-action shotguns is gorgeous proof of that. 

As alert NRA Women readers no doubt know, our Firearm Industry Woman of the Year Golden Bullseye Award for 2020 went to Mossberg’s Linda Powell. It’s no surprise, then, that the Silver Reserve Field shotgun is available in a compact/youth model that’s perfect for smaller-statured women. These well-appointed double-barrel over/under (O/U) guns are available in 12, 20, 28-gauge and .410 bore; the youth/compact model is available in 20 gauge only at this time. 

What’s really exciting news here is that these high-end shotguns are available at a very entry-level price. There are two basic stock options for the Silver Reserve Field line. If you choose the handsome black-walnut stock with cut checkering on the grip and forend, you’re looking at an MSRP of $692. If you go with the black synthetic stock version, it’s even more wallet-friendly at $636. (What’s more, those are the manufacturer’s suggested retail prices—you can almost always find them for less at gun stores.)

These affordable over-under shotguns offer either a “standard” 14” LOP or the compact 13.25: LOP. Other standard features include shell extractors; 28-inch (12 gauge) or 26-inch (20 gauge, 28 gauge and 410 bore) barrel lengths, topped with a front bead sight; Field Set of 5 flush choke tubes (Cylinder, Improved Cylinder, Modified, Improved Modified and Full); satin-finished silver receiver with engraved Mossberg logo; and tang-mounted safety and barrel selector. All Reserve Series shotguns feature chrome-lined bores and chambers and dual-locking lugs. If you’ve been interested in trying an over/under scattergun, this is a terrific way to dip your toes in the water. MSRP: $692 (Black Walnut Stock) and $636 (Black Synthetic Stock). Mossberg.com
