Mossberg has introduced the newest member of its venerable Patriot bolt-action rifle family: the Patriot LR (Long Range) Tactical. Housed in an adjustable, customizable chassis system and fed from AICS-style magazine, this Patriot rifle is designed to enhance your long-range performance and accuracy.
Based on the proven Patriot bolt-action platform, the Patriot LR Tactical 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. For ease of adding a suppressor, the barrel is threaded (⅝”-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 user-adjustable trigger with a 2- to 7-pound range of adjustment. Rounding out the standard features are an oversized, easy-grip bolt handle and smooth-cycling fluted bolt.
Setting this Patriot apart is the MDT Field Stock chassis system that features V-Block aluminum bedding for stability on long-range shots, a Magpul M-LOK-compatible fore-end with slots at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions for accessory customization, and a buttstock that is adjustable for length-of-pull (LOP) from 13.5 to 14.25 inches with the use of spacers (three .75-inch spacers included). The comb height is also adjustable, up to 2 inches, 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 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 a 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).
The Patriot LR Tactical has an MSRP of $1,085 and is currently available chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Winchester (22-inch barrels) and 6.5 PRC (24-inch barrel). For more information, visit mossberg.com.
