Mossberg Patriot Predator 6.5 PRC True Timber Strata/Patriot Brown Cerakote

28091_Patriot_Predator_STRATA_Cerakote_6.5PRC-2

Looking to go long-range? Look no further than the suppressor and optics-ready Mossberg Patriot Predator bolt-action rifle chambered in 6.5 PRC (Precision Rifle Cartridge). This purpose-built rifle is housed in a durable synthetic stock, fully-covered with TrueTimber® Strata™ camouflage with complementing Patriot Brown Cerakote® metal finish and is packed with premium features to deliver tack-driving performance. Designed for short-action, bolt-action rifles, 6.5 PRC offers a balance of velocity, manageable recoil and a flat trajectory for extended-range performance in the field or at the range to 1000 yards and beyond.

At the core is Mossberg’s proven twin-lug, push-feed machined-steel action, fed from a lightweight polymer, flush 4-round box magazine. The standard contour, free-floating 24-inch barrel features a 1:8 twist rate, straight-edge fluting and is threaded (5/8”- 24 threads per inch) for the addition of a suppressor. A protective cap is included. . Every Patriot rifle features Mossberg’s patented LBA™ (Lightning Bolt Action™) user-adjustable trigger with a 2 to 7-pound range of adjustment, to help provide consistent shot-after-shot placement. A top-mounted Picatinny rail provides for ease of mounting and repositioning optics. And completing this performance-driven bolt-action package are oversized bolt handle; spiral-fluted bolt; and sling swivel studs.

The classically-styled stock on the Patriot Predator rifle is well-designed for comfort and reduced felt recoil with its straight comb, rounded edges and raised cheekpiece. Giving the stock a modern feel is textured stippling on the grip and three surface areas of the forend. A polymer block insert with integral magazine well provides a simple, but effective bedding platform. Rounding out the stock design is a traditional black rubber recoil pad. This Predator is built to hunt equally at home and on the range.
