Silver Reserve Eventide Lede

Mossberg International has introduced a group of new Eventide Over/Under shotguns, which should be of interest to hunters of all stripes.

Silver Reserve Eventide 20 Gauge

Eventide O/U

First on the list is a synthetic, 20-gauge field gun, named simply the Eventide O/U. This basic variant boasts a black synthetic stock with cut-checkering on the grip and fore-end; a 14-inch length-of-pull (LOP); a matte blue metal finish; and a 26-inch vent rib barrel topped with a front fiber-optic sight. Other standard features include shell extractors; a Field Set of five flush-fit choke tubes (Cylinder, Improved Cylinder, Modified, Improved Modified and Full); and a tang-mounted safety and barrel selector. As with all Silver Reserve shotguns, the Eventide O/U features chrome-lined bores and chambers, and dual-locking lugs. MSRP: $756

Silver Reserve Eventide Waterfowl

Eventide Waterfowl O/U

Next up comes with Eventide Waterfowl O/U. This traditional break-action 12-gauge features a 3.5-inch chamber for those hefty magnum waterfowl loads; a weather-resistant Cerakote-finished receiver and barrels in Patriot Brown; and a camouflaged-covered synthetic stock and fore-end in Mossy Oak Vintage Shadow Grass. The gun's stock features a 14-inch length-of-pull, while its 28-inch vent rib barrels are topped with a front fiber-optic sight and come with a Field Set of chokes (Cylinder, Improved Cylinder, Modified, Improved Modified, and Full). Completing this field-ready O/U is the Mossberg logo laser-engraved on the receiver, and tang-mounted safety and barrel selector. MSRP: $956

Silver Reserve Eventide Turkey

Eventide Turkey O/U

Finally is the Eventide Turkey O/U. Rather than a specific model, this represents a whole sub-series of the Eventide line, including a 12-gauge (3.5-inch), 20-gauge and 28-gauge with 3-inch chambers, all sporting relatively compact 20-inch barrels and full camo-coverage in Mossy Oak Greenleaf. All these guns have durable, camo synthetic stocks and fore-ends; 14-inch length-of-pull; complementing camo metal finish; 20-inch vent rib barrel topped with a front fiber optic sight; and dual-locking lugs. Other standard features include shell extractors; two extended choke tubes; Mossberg® logo engraved on the receiver; and tang-mounted safety and barrel selector. Bores and chambers are chrome-lined for corrosion resistance. MSRP: $927
