If you enjoy hunting predators and like the classic design of the Mossberg Patriot hunting rifle, introduced in 2015, you’ll want to look at the Patriot Predator. The new models are available in 6.5mm Creedmoor, .243 Win and .308 Win. Built with the rigors of predator hunting in mind, the rifles feature a durable flat dark earth synthetic stock with a raised cheek piece and textured stippling on the grip and forend. A polymer block is used as bedding.

The heart of the Patriot Predator is a twin-lug, push-feed machined-steel action, fed from a durable and lightweight polymer, flush 4-round box magazine. The 22-inch fluted barrel is free-floating and threaded, allowing you to attach a suppressor by removing the cap. The carbon steel barrel has a blued finish to reduce glare when hunting and provides proven protection. Users will love the adjustable trigger with a range of 2 to 7 pounds. The rifle comes with a top-mounted Picatinny rail for mounting optics and accessories. To make the gun even more appealing it has an oversized bolt handle and spiral-fluted bolt.

The 6.5mm Creedmoor has a 1:8 twist rate while the .243 Win and .308 Win offerings feature 1:10 twist rates. The Patriot Predator has a MSRP of $441.00.
