Mossberg offers more than 60 models of the Patriot in 11 of the most popular calibers. These rifles combine the most-desired features from previous Mossberg centerfire rifles in a re-engineered platform with a streamlined bolt handle, a redesigned bolt knob and a classic, hunting-style stock.

Now Mossberg has released five new Patriot bolt-action rifles that feature Kryptek Highlander camo stocks with matte blue metal finishes in .243 Winchester, .308 Winchester/7.62mm NATO, .270 Winchester, .30-06 Springfield and .300 Winchester Magnum.
BORN TO HUNT
The Kryptek Highlander camouflage pattern is specially designed for hunting in varied terrain and elevation. The classic stock design has textured stippling on the grip and three surface areas of the forend, and the buttstock features a straight comb with rounded edges, a raised cheekpiece and a traditional rubber buttpad for greater comfort and reduced recoil.
A polymer block insert with an integral magazine well provides a simple but effective bedding platform.

To complement the stock redesign and improve handling, Mossberg has streamlined the bolt handle, providing additional clearance for gloved or larger hands, and added an aggressively checkered bolt knob.
