If you’re one of the many who have become long-range shooting enthusiasts, you’ll want to know about a new addition to the Mossberg family: the Patriot LR (Long Range) Tactical bolt-action rifle. The Patriot line of rifles has become one of Mossberg's most reliable and popular, and this new model fills the long-range niche by enhancing performance and accuracy. The best news is that it is available now in three popular chamberings: 6.5 mm Creedmoor and .308 Win. with 22” barrel length; and 6.5 PRC with 24” barrel.

While your primary concern is being able to hit your target from way out, we always like to provide information on some of the features that go into the build that allows that to happen. For example, the Patriot LR is housed in an adjustable, customizable chassis system and fed from AICS-style magazine. The rifle has a twin-lug push-feed machined-steel action with medium bull, carbon steel barrel featuring an 11-degree match crown and matte blue finish. If you have plans to add a suppressor, the barrel is threaded (5/8”-24 threads per inch) and includes a protective thread cap. The factory-installed 20 MOA Picatinny rail provides for added elevation adjustment with most optics. And like all Patriot rifles, this tack driver has Mossberg’s patented LBA (Lightning Bolt Action) user-adjustable trigger with a 2- to 7-lb. range of adjustment. Rounding out the standard features are an oversized, easy-grip bolt handle and smooth-cycling fluted bolt.

But wait, there’s more. What really sets this Patriot apart is the MDT Field Stock chassis system, which features V-Block aluminum bedding for stability on long-range shots; Magpul M-LOK-compatible fore-end with slots at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions for accessory customization; and buttstock that is adjustable for length-of-pull (LOP) from 13.5” to 14.25” with the use of spacers (three .75” spacers included). The comb height is also adjustable, up to 2”, with the tension knob. Simply loosen the knob, adjust the cheekrest to the desired height and re-tighten the knob. The trigger guard is oversized and is equipped with an integrated magazine release lever located forward of the trigger guard. Completing the design of this functional stock is an ergonomic, straight-wrist grip with texturing; front and rear sling swivel studs; and flat dark earth finish. The Patriot LR Tactical is fed from a metal AICS-style detachable magazine with 7-round or 10-round capacity and will accept aftermarket AICS-style mags (caliber-specific).
