Mossberg, one of the leaders in precision bolt-action rifles, has an update to the Patriot family with the Patriot LR (Long Range) Tactical bolt-action rifle. The updated Patriot LR bolt-action rifle is available in the most popular long-range calibers: 6.5 Creedmoor, 308 Win, and 6.5 PRC.
Taking the proven Patriot platform, the Patriot LR Tactical has a twin-lug push-feed steel action with a medium bull barrel. The carbon steel barrel has an 11-degree match crown, a matte blue finish, and is threaded 5/8”-24 which is perfect for a suppressor. The barrel is 22 inches long for the 6.5mm Creedmoor and 308 Win models and 24 inches long for the 6.5 PRC model.
This Patriot LR Tactical uses the MDT Field Stock chassis system with the V-Block aluminum bedding for barrel stability and a Magpul M-LOK compatible forend with slots at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions for mounting accessories easily. The stock also features an adjustable height comb height, done with the use of a tension knob, along with an adjustable length-of-pull with the use of the supplied spacers.
Mossberg employed a factory-installed 20 MOA Picatinny rail for extra elevation adjustment with optics. The Patriot LR Tactical uses the patented LBA (Lightening Bolt Action) adjustable trigger that has a two to seven-pound adjustment range. Also, on the LR Tactical rifle is an oversized bolt handle and a smooth-cycling fluted bolt.
The integrated magazine release lever sits forward of the oversized trigger guard. To round out the features of the Patriot LR Tactical rifle is an ergo-centric straight-wrist grip with texturing, swing swivel studs, and flat dark earth (FDE) finish.
According to Mossberg, the Patriot LR Tactical rifle from Mossberg is designed to enhance your long-range performance and accuracy by delivering precision and functionality. The LR Tactical uses AICS-style box magazines and each rifle has an MSRP of $1,085.
