Mossberg announced its new Patriot bolt-action rifle at SHOT Show 2015, and the positive response was immediate. In our full print review, Richard Mann said "The Mossberg Patriot just might be the rifle for those with champagne tastes who are living on a beer budget." Our friends at American Rifleman have further honored the Patriot in naming it an NRA Gun of the Week. You can get a closer look at the new release in the video embedded above.
